Systemic Absorption and Block after Epidural Injection of Ropivacaine in Healthy Volunteers
Background: For local anesthetics, the process of removal from the site of administration influences the duration of anesthesia and the risk for systemic toxicity to develop. The systemic absorptionExpand

The analgesic effect of racemic ketamine in patients with chronic ischemic pain due to lower extremity arteriosclerosis obliterans
Background: Ketamine in sub‐dissociative doses has been shown to have analgesic and phantom‐Limb pain, where conventional treatment has often failed. Chronic ischemic pain due to lower extremityExpand

Methamphetamine concentrations in fetal and maternal brain following prenatal exposure.
Levels of methamphetamine in maternal striatum and whole fetal mouse brain were assessed at 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 h postinjection on gestational day 14 (GD14) following a single, subcutaneous injection ofExpand

One-Lung Ventilation with High Tidal Volumes and Zero Positive End-Expiratory Pressure Is Injurious in the Isolated Rabbit Lung Model
We tested the hypothesis that one-lung ventilation (OLV) with high tidal volumes (Vt) and zero positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) may lead to ventilator-induced lung injury. In an isolated,Expand

Measurement and modeling of the transient difference between blood and subcutaneous glucose concentrations in the rat after injection of insulin.
The kinetics of the fall in subcutaneous fluid glucose concentration in anesthetized rats (n = 7) after intravenous injection of insulin (0.5 units/kg) was studied by using 5 x 10(-4) cm2 activeExpand

Alteration of n-3 fatty acid composition in lung tissue after short-term infusion of fish oil emulsion attenuates inflammatory vascular reaction.
OBJECTIVES To investigate whether modulation of the fatty acid profile can be achieved by the short-term infusion of a fish oil emulsion which may attenuate the pulmonary response to inflammatoryExpand
