Uterine Artery Doppler Flow Velocity Waveforms in the Second Trimester for the Prediction of Preeclampsia and Fetal Growth Retardation
Objective: To determine the optimal method of measuring uterine artery waveforms with Doppler ultrasound when screening healthy nulliparas for subsequent development of preeclampsia and fetal growthExpand
Simultaneous measurements of cardiac noradrenaline spillover and sympathetic outflow to skeletal muscle in humans.
1. Muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSA) was recorded in the peroneal nerve at the knee by microneurography in ten healthy subjects and determinations were made simultaneously of intra‐arterialExpand
Frequency and severity of pain and symptom distress among patients with chronic kidney disease receiving dialysis.
QUESTION UNDER STUDY Data on pain management in haemodialysis patients with end-stage renal disease are scanty. Our study aimed to collect information on the frequency and severity of pain andExpand
[Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy].
Hypertension in pregnancy is defined by a systolic blood pressure > or = 140 mm Hg and a diastolic blood pressure of > or = 90 mm Hg or by a rise in blood pressure of systolic > or = 30 mm Hg andExpand
Alfentanil Pharmacokinetics in Patients with Cirrhosis
The pharmacokinetics of alfentanil were studied in 11 patients with alcoholic cirrhosis and 10 control patients during general anesthesia. All patients received 50 μg·kg−1 alfentanil as anExpand
Evidence for increased noradrenaline release from subcortical brain regions in essential hypertension
Objective: To test whether the activation of the sympathetic nervous system that is common in essential hypertension derives from subcortical noradrenergic neuronal excitation. Design and methods: WeExpand
Dysregulation of atrial natriuretic factor in hypertension-prone man.
To evaluate the hypothesis of an atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) deficiency in hypertension-prone humans, we investigated plasma ANF and other variables in 116 white offspring of normotensive parentsExpand
Atrial natriuretic peptide in man.
The history of the atrial natriuretic peptides (ANP) begins with the observation of electron dense granules in atrial myocytes of guinea pigs (1). Similar granules were later demonstrated in humanExpand
Biochemical evidence of sympathetic hyperactivity in human hypertension.
Radiotracer measures of norepinephrine overflow to plasma are well suited for studying both human sympathetic nervous system responses to mental stress and sympathetic nervous pathophysiology inExpand
Impaired contraction and relaxation in skin resistance arteries from patients with congestive heart failure.
OBJECTIVE The aim was to determine the pharmacological reactivity of human small resistance arteries in patients with cardiac failure. METHODS Small arteries (< 300 microns internal diameter) wereExpand
