Omega-3 fatty acids improve the diagnosis-related clinical outcome*
Administration of omega-3 fatty acid may reduce mortality, antibiotic use, and length of hospital stay in different diseases, and the present data can be used in formulating hypotheses and may serve as reference doses for randomized, controlled studies, which may, for instance, confirm the value of fish oil in the adjunctive therapy of peritonitis and abdominal sepsis.

Omega‐3 fatty acids improve liver and pancreas function in postoperative cancer patients
After major abdominal tumor surgery, FO supplementation improved liver and pancreas function, which might have contributed to the faster recovery of patients and showed a tendency to shorter ICU stay under omega‐3 PUFA treatment. Expand
Reversal of central nervous system and cardiac toxicity after local anesthetic intoxication by lipid emulsion injection.
A 91-yr-old man (57 kg, 156 cm, ASA III) received an infraclavicular brachial plexus block for surgery of bursitis of the olecranon with signs of central nervous system and cardiac toxicity resolved and the patient underwent the scheduled surgical procedure uneventfully. Expand
n-3 fatty acid-enriched parenteral nutrition regimens in elective surgical and ICU patients: a meta-analysis
These results confirm and extend previous findings, indicating that n-3 PUFAs-enriched parenteral nutrition regimens are safe and effective in reducing the infection rate and hospital/ICU stay in surgical and ICU patients. Expand
S3 guidelines for intensive care in cardiac surgery patients: hemodynamic monitoring and cardiocirculary system
This guideline is to assess the available monitoring methods with regard to indication, procedures, predication, limits, contraindications and risks for use and to define therapy goals for monitoring and therapy. Expand
Spontaneous Breathing during General Anesthesia Prevents the Ventral Redistribution of Ventilation as Detected by Electrical Impedance Tomography: A Randomized Trial
Both pressure-controlled ventilation and pressure support ventilation induce a redistribution of ventilation toward the ventral region, as detected by electrical impedance tomography, and spontaneous breathing prevents this redistribution. Expand
Combination of high-resolution ultrasound-guided perivascular regional anesthesia of the internal carotid artery and intermediate cervical plexus block for carotid surgery.
High-resolution ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia using a 12.5-MHz linear ultrasound transducer was performed in 34 patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy and concludes that the described ultrasound- guided perivascular anesthesia technique is effective forcarotid artery surgery. Expand
[Inhaled anesthetics].
Inhaled anesthetics are inhaled via the lungs. They subsequently pass through the alveolocapillary membrane and diffuse into the blood to finally target the central nervous system and induceExpand
One-Lung Ventilation with High Tidal Volumes and Zero Positive End-Expiratory Pressure Is Injurious in the Isolated Rabbit Lung Model
A ventilatory strategy with Vt values as high as those used in the clinical setting and zero PEEP leads to ventilator-induced lung injury in this model of OLV, but this can be minimized with VT and PEEP values set to avoid lung overdistension and collapse. Expand
Detection of Deteriorating Patients on Surgical Wards Outside the ICU by an Automated MEWS-Based Early Warning System With Paging Functionality.
The early deterioration detection of patients on surgical wards outside the ICU may be improved by introducing an automated multiparameter early warning score (MEWS)-based early warning system with paging functionality on 2 wards hosting patients recovering from highly complex surgical interventions.
