CO2 laser emitted radiant heat pulses of 20 ms duration were used to activate predominantly slowly conducting nociceptive cutaneous afferents in man. Stimuli of two-fold individual pain threshold caused stinging and burning pain and elicited cerebral potentials with latencies consistent with A delta-fibre activity. After preferential block of the myelinated(More)
Colonic surgery patients were studied to measure: the influence of continuous thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) on a postoperative pain score, the time till onset of defaecation, blood loss, postoperative temperature elevations, rate of bacterial contamination of wounds and urine, and general surgical complications. Group I patients (n = 57) received(More)
INTRODUCTION Virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS) is a severe complication of various viral infections often resulting in multiorgan failure and death. The purpose of this study was to describe baseline characteristics, development of VAHS, related treatments and associated mortality rate of consecutive critically ill patients with confirmed 2009(More)
Neurosurgical intensive care units were increasingly agglomerated in large centralized interdisciplinary intensive care units in the last two decades. In the majority, these centralized interdisciplinary intensive care units were directed and managed by intensivists coming from anaesthesiology. We sought to review the evidence supporting neurosurgical(More)
BACKGROUND At our institution, until April 2013, patients who showed early donor specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA) after lung transplantation were preemptively treated with therapeutic plasma exchange (tPE) and a single dose of Rituximab. In April 2013, we moved to a therapy based on IgM-enriched human immunoglobulins (IVIG), repeated every 4 weeks, and a(More)
The dataset necessary to produce reports for anaesthetic training purposes is described, together with appropriate definitions. The format for a standard report that may be used in a logbook is also described. These have been accepted by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. The German Anaesthetic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Anaesthesiologie und(More)
Many different claim forms are used when starting rehabilitation following inpatient treatment, resulting in high administrative overheads for hospital staff, financial institutions and government agencies as well as patient allocation inefficiencies. We describe the problems ensuing on multiple and incompatible claim forms. On the basis of a survey of(More)
Postoperative complications will always occur and the negative impact puts strain on patients, relatives and the attending physicians. The conversion to a remuneration system based on flat rates (diagnosis-related groups) presents additional economic problems for hospitals in some resource-intensive treatments. This particularly pertains to extremely(More)
Computer-aided documentation of medical and performance data processing seems to be imperative for every intensive-care unit in the future. It is the rational approach to deal with therapy-related information management as well as organizational and administrative tasks. This custom-made program is based on data collected from 3600 intensive-care patients.(More)
Radiology departments at hospitals are closely watched for their economy. The introduction of fast scanner technology usually triggers questions about simultaneously reducing final report times. The aim of the present study was first to examine, if the multi-moment analysis (MMH) is an appropriate method for structural and quantitative analysis of complex(More)
