(Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia, 2001-02-19) [Artigo]
Background and Objectives - It is essential to reduce health care costs without impairing the quality of care. Propofol is associated to faster recovery and it is known that post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) costs are high. ...
Effects of magnesium sulphate on the pharmacodynamics of rocuronium in patients aged 60 years and older: A randomised trial
(European Journal of Anaesthesiology, 2013-10-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND There is little information on the interaction between magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) and rocuronium in elderly patients. With a growing number of older patients who need surgical procedures, it is increasingly ...
Effects of contrast material on computed tomographic measurements of lung volumes in patients with acute lung injury
(Critical Care, 2003-02-01) [Artigo]
Background. Intravenous injection of contrast material is routinely performed in order to differentiate nonaerated lung parenchyma from pleural effusion in critically ill patients undergoing thoracic computed tomography ...
Echocardiographic Doppler estimation of pulmonary artery pressure in critically ill patients with severe hypoxemia
(Anesthesiology, 2008-01-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: In spontaneously breathing cardiac patients, pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) can be accurately estimated from the transthoracic Doppler study of pulmonary artery and tricuspid regurgitation blood flows. In ...
Continuous measurement of cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO 2) for assessment of cardiovascular status during hemorrhagic shock in a swine model
(Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, 2012-08-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Background: Early trauma care is dependent on subjective assessments and sporadic vital sign assessments. We hypothesized that near-infrared spectroscopy-measured cerebral oxygenation (regional oxygen saturation [rSO 2]) ...
A lung computed tomographic assessment of positive end-expiratory pressure-induced lung overdistension
(American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, 1998-12-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to assess positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)-induced lung overdistension and alveolar recruitment in six patients with acute lung injury (ALI) using a computed tomographic (CT) scan method. ...
