Intraoperative Cardiac Arrest and Mortality in Trauma Patients. A 14-Yr Survey from a Brazilian Tertiary Teaching Hospital
(PLOS ONE, 2014-02-27) [Artigo]
Background: Little information on the factors influencing intraoperative cardiac arrest and its outcomes in trauma patients is available. This survey evaluated the associated factors and outcomes of intraoperative cardiac ...
Comparison of oxidative stress in ASA physical status I patients scheduled for minimally invasive surgery under balanced or intravenous anesthesia
(Minerva Anestesiologica, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Background. The effects of anesthetics on inflammation and oxidative parameters, evaluated in patients without morbidities undergoing undergoing minor surgery, remain unknown. The present study aimed to investigate the ...
The Temperature and Humidity in a Low-Flow Anesthesia Workstation With and Without a Heat and Moisture Exchanger
(Anesthesia and Analgesia, 2011-09-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: The Drager Primus anesthesia workstation has a built-in hotplate to heat the patient's exhaled gas. The fresh gas flow is mixed with the heated exhaled gas as they pass through the soda lime canister. A heat ...
Early hemodynamic and renal effects of hemorrhagic shock resuscitation with lactated Ringer's solution, hydroxyethyl starch, and hypertonic saline with or without 6% dextran-70
(Journal of Surgical Research, 2006-11-01) [Artigo]
Background. Considering the renal effects of fluid resuscitation in hemorrhaged patients, the choice of fluid has been a source of controversy. In a model of hemorrhagic shock, we studied the early hemodynamic and renal ...
Inflammatory cytokines profile in patients submitted to non-invasive surgeries under sevoflurane anesthesia
(Inflammation Research, 2011-06-01) [Resumo]
Does sealing endotracheal tube cuff pressure diminish the frequency of postoperative laryngotracheal complaints after nitrous oxide anesthesia?
(Journal of Clinical Anesthesia, 2004-08-01) [Artigo]
Study Objectives: To study endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff pressures during nitrous oxide (N2O) anesthesia when the cuffs are inflated with air to achieve sealing pressure, and to evaluate the frequency of postoperative ...

(Acta Cirúrgica Brasileira, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
PURPOSE:To investigate the effects of occupational exposure to waste anesthetic gases on genetic material and antioxidant status in professionals during their medical residency. METHODS:The study group consisted of 15 ...
Cytokine Profile in Patients Undergoing Minimally Invasive Surgery with Balanced Anesthesia
(Inflammation, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
Patients undergoing surgical procedure develop an inflammatory response due to surgical trauma that may be modulated by anesthetics. The aim of this study was to investigate the cytokine profile in the plasma of adult ...
Intraoperative and Anesthesia-Related Cardiac Arrest and Its Mortality in Older Patients: A 15-Year Survey in a Tertiary Teaching Hospital
(Plos One, 2014-08-12) [Artigo]
Background: Little information is known about factors that influence perioperative and anesthesia-related cardiac arrest (CA) in older patients. This study evaluated the incidence, causes and outcome of intraoperative and ...
