When treated with invasive endotracheal mechanical ventilation (ETMV), acute respiratory insufficiency after lung resection is fatal in up to 80% of cases. Noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) may reduce the need for ETMV, thereby improving survival. We conducted a randomized prospective trial to compare standard therapy with and without(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the risk factors for postpneumonectomy pulmonary edema in 146 consecutive patients. METHODS In 1992, 146 consecutive patients, aged 60.5 +/- 9.4 years, underwent pneumonectomy, mostly for cancer (n = 136). Pulmonary edema was defined clinically and radiologically in the absence of left ventricular dysfunction or infection. Several(More)
Common representation of the environment is usually depicted as a global or local map. To increase robustness of autonomous creation of such a representation, novel datasets are required. We introduce a system to record precise datasets targeting semi-structured environments which is most likely to be encountered in USAR situations. The global positioning,(More)
