Indocyanine green dye (ICG) fluoresces when illuminated by infrared light. After successful trials in a porcine model and with approval of the Massachusetts General Hospital's human studies committee, 10 adult patients with burn injuries were given 0.2 mg/kg ICG intravenously, and 825 nm fluorescence images were obtained with 780 nm excitation at 5 minutes(More)
BACKGROUND Infrared-excited fluorescence of intravenously administered indocyanine green (ICG) is being used as a method of early determination of burn depth. METHODS Fluorescence microscopy and tissue fluorescence were recorded in a porcine burn model and correlated to burn severity and age. RESULTS Recently placed superficial burns show significant(More)
In this study, we aimed to continuously measure cardiac output (CO) with the electrical velocimetry (EV) method and characterize the hemodynamic profile of patients undergoing spinal anesthesia for elective cesarean delivery (CD), and to discuss the potential benefit of using real time CO monitoring to guide patient management. Forty-two patients scheduled(More)
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCM) is a syndrome of reversible stress-induced cardiomyopathy associated with profound emotional stress and a variety of medical illnesses and procedures, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). We describe 1 case of ECT-induced TCM followed by a successful retrial of ECT. We further discuss the management of ECT-induced TCM(More)
