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 ...
Perioperative and anesthesia-related mortality: An 8-year observational survey from a tertiary teaching hospital
(Medicine (United States), 2016-01-01) [Artigo]
In 2006, a previous study at our institution reported high perioperative and anesthesia-related mortality rates of 21.97 and 1.12 per 10,000 anesthetics, respectively. Since then, changes in surgical practices may have ...
Bedside tests to predict laryngoscopic difficulty in pediatric patients
(International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, 2016-04-01) [Artigo]
Background and Objectives: Pediatric airway management is a priority during anesthesia, critical care and emergency medicine. The purpose of this study is to validate bedside tests that predict airway management difficulty ...
Total Spinal Anesthesia Failure: Have You Assessed the Sensory Anesthesia in Sacral Dermatomes?
(Anesthesia And Analgesia, 2017-05-01) [Artigo]
Intrathecal local anesthetic maldistribution is a well-known cause of spinal anesthesia failure (SAF). This could potentially result in sensory blockade restricted to the sacral dermatomes. We sought to determine the overall ...

(Inflammation Research, 2011-06-01) [Resumo]
Intraoperative cardiac arrest and mortality in trauma: a study over 14 years from a Brazilian teaching hospital
(British Journal of Anaesthesia, 2012-03-01) [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 ...
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 ...
