Acute axonal polyneuropathy has been found in patients with multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. This ‘critical illness polyneuropathy’ (CIP) has been associated with difficult weaning from the ventilator in retrospective studies. To test the hypothesis that CIP is related to the degree and number of organ dysfunctions, and to weaning problems. Prospective(More)
The neurometric method as introduced by John was used to study three groups of patients with cerebral ischemia, three groups of patients with renal disease and an additional normal control group. The traditional neurometric approach was slightly modified: relative band power values were not expressed as a percentage of the total power per derivation but as(More)
A series of 40 patients with blood in the cerebral ventricular system demonstrated by computed tomography (CT) is presented. Overall prognosis was found to be better than expected from the literature. Nearly half of the patients are still alive; 12 of the 40 patients in this study had no significant residual disability. The results suggest that the rupture(More)
Background. Electrocardiographic (ECG) abnormalities frequently occur after subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), and have been linked with poor outcome. The pathogenesis behind this relation is unclear. We hypothesized that cardiac dysfunction may contribute to the development of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) and investigated if electrocardiographic(More)
