Management of the airway is central to the practice of anesthesia. Several bedside airway assessment methods have been proposed for preoperative identification of patients who are difficult to intubate. The modified Mallampati test (MMT) remains a time-tested technique to date for recognizing an anticipated difficult tracheal intubation as assessed by(More)
AIM It is well known that general anesthetics suppress/alter electrocorticography (ECoG) activity. However there are no randomized studies available, comparing various anesthetic techniques as regards their effects on ECoG. METHODS The following is a double blind, randomized cross over study to compare the effects of isoflurane and propofol with or(More)
BACKGROUND There are numerous reports of difficult laryngoscopy and intubation in patients with acromegaly. To date, no study has assessed the application of extended Mallampati score (EMS) for predicting difficult intubation in acromegalics. The primary aim of this study was to compare EMS with modified Mallampati classification (MMP) in predicting(More)
Advertisers and big data mining experts alike are today are dealing with complex datasets of increasing variety (first and third party data), volume (events, impressions, clicks), and velocity (real time bidding). Creating predictive models to customize advertiser requirements and campaign analytics to show targeted ads to users who are most likely to(More)
Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is an infrequent cause of hospital-acquired infections. The clinical and microbiological profiles of infections due to E. meningoseptica over a seven-year period at a Level-I trauma centre are reported in this study. Medical records of patients from whose clinical samples E. meningoseptica was isolated on more than one(More)
Symptomatic vertebral hemangiomas (SVH) are difficult to treat and many therapeutic options, including surgery, radiotherapy, arterial embolization, and injection of methyl-methacrylate into hemagiomatous vertebrae have been reported. Alcohol ablation of vertebral hemangiomas is an effective management option; however, a literature search did not reveal any(More)
BACKGROUND Re-intubation of neurosurgical patients after a successful tracheal extubation in the operating room is not uncommon. However, no prospective study has ever addressed this concern. This study was aimed at analyzing various risk factors of re-intubation and its effect on patient outcome. METHODS Patients aged between 18-60 yrs and of ASA(More)
Online display advertisers extensively use the concept of a user segment to cluster users into targetable groups. When the sizes of such segments are less than the desired value for campaign budgets, there is a need to use probabilistic modeling to expand the size. This process is termed look-alike modeling. Given the multitude of data providers and on-line(More)
