We have studied the influence of clinical concentrations of propofol (2,6-diisopropyl phenol), emulsified propofol (Diprivan) and the emulsifier of propofol (Intralipid 10%) on random and chemotactic locomotion of human polymorphonuclear leucocytes in an agarose assay. Random locomotion was decreased (P < 0.001) to a similar extent by the three drugs.(More)
OBJECTIVES:The treatment of peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB) is complex, and mortality remains high. We present results from a nationwide initiative to monitor and improve the quality of care (QOC) in PUB.METHODS:All Danish hospitals treating PUB patients between 2004 and 2011 prospectively registered demographic, clinical, and prognostic data. QOC was evaluated(More)
OBJECTIVE The overall mortality for patients undergoing surgery for perforated peptic ulcer has increased despite improvements in perioperative monitoring and treatment. The objective of this study was to identify and describe perioperative risk factors in order to identify ways of optimizing the treatment and to improve the outcome of patients with(More)
Emergency patients need special considerations and the number and severity of complications from general anaesthesia can be higher than during scheduled procedures. Guidelines are therefore needed. The Clinical Practice Committee of the Scandinavian Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine appointed a working group to develop guidelines based(More)
A comparison was made between early and late recovery after major abdominal surgery under intravenous anaesthesia with propofol (with and without nitrous oxide) or inhalational anaesthesia with isoflurane. Sixty patients were randomly allocated to one of three forms of anaesthesia: propofol, propofol/nitrous oxide, or isoflurane/nitrous oxide anaesthesia.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of propofol, nitrous oxide and isoflurane on recovery, postoperative bowel function and postoperative complications after major gastrointestinal surgery. Sixty patients undergoing elective colonic operations were included in the study. They were randomly allocated to anaesthesia with isoflurane-nitrous(More)
The influence of different oxygen flow rates on ventilation and arterial blood gases was investigated in ten healthy volunteers during oxygen treatment with the Hudson mask. Respiratory parameters were calculated using inductive plethysmography calibrated against pneumotachography. The minute ventilation was greater when using the mask with oxygen flow(More)
We have evaluated the effects of nitrous oxide on recovery following laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a prospective, randomised, double-blind study with 42 otherwise healthy patients. All patients received meperidine 1 mg/kg and atropine 6 micrograms/kg im for premedication, and anaesthesia was induced with fentanyl 2 micrograms/kg and thiopental 4-6 mg/kg.(More)
Forty neonates delivered by cesarean section were studied, half being delivered of mothers in whom anesthesia was induced with midazolam (0.3 mg/kg intravenously) and half of mothers given thiopental (4 mg/kg). At delivery, blood samples from mother and the umbilical vein were drawn for determination of plasma concentrations of thiopental, midazolam, and(More)
Forty-two patients undergoing major colonic surgery were assigned at random to receive isoflurane-fentanyl anaesthesia with nitrous oxide in oxygen, propofol-fentanyl anaesthesia with air in oxygen or propofol-fentanyl anaesthesia with nitrous oxide in oxygen. The groups were comparable in demographic data. Atelectases were identified, and the area measured(More)
