Adrenomedullin induces pulmonary vasodilation but does not attenuate pulmonary hypertension in a sheep model of acute pulmonary embolism
(Life Sciences, 2015-10-15) [Artigo]
The pulmonary vasodilation induced by adrenomedullin may be beneficial in the acute pulmonary embolism (APE) setting. This study examined effects of adrenomedullin in sheep with microsphere-induced APE. Twenty four ...
Anesthesia-related and perioperative cardiac arrest in low- and high-income countries: a systematic review with meta-regression and proportional meta-analysis
(Medicine, 2015) [Artigo]
The anesthesia-related cardiac arrest (CA) rate is a quality indicator to improve patient safety in the perioperative period. A systematic review with meta-analysis of the worldwide literature related to anesthesia-related ...
Effects of different inspired oxygen fractions on sildenafil-induced pulmonary anti-hypertensive effects in a sheep model of acute pulmonary embolism
(Life Sciences, 2015-04-15) [Artigo]
Aims: Sildenafil is a pulmonary anti-hypertensive agent whose action could be modified by different fractions of inspired oxygen (FiO(2)). We compared the effects of pure oxygen (FiO(2) > 90%) or room air (21% FiO(2)) ...
Sevoflurane induces DNA damage whereas isoflurane leads to higher antioxidative status in anesthetized rats
(Biomed Research International, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Taking into account that there are controversial antioxidative effects of inhalational anesthetics isoflurane and sevoflurane and absence of comparison of genotoxicity of both anesthetics in animal model, the aim of this ...
