OBJECTIVES Glomerular filtration rate can be measured as the plasma clearance (CL) of a glomerular filtration rate marker despite body fluid disturbances using numerous, prolonged time samples. We desire a simplified technique without compromised accuracy and precision. MATERIALS AND METHODS We compared CL values derived from two plasma concentration… (More)
We report a case of acute raised intracranial pressure soon after deflation of arterial tourniquets in a patient with limb injuries as well as a severe head injury. The likely mechanism was release of carbon dioxide into the circulation as the ischaemic limbs were re-perfused.
