The influence of daltroban (BM13.505; SK&F 96148), a thromboxane (Tx) A2-receptor-blocking agent, on responses to the TxA2 mimics U-46619 and U-44069 was investigated in the pulmonary vascular bed of the intact-chest cat under constant-flow conditions. Daltroban (5 mg/kg iv) had no significant effect on mean baseline vascular pressures but significantly(More)
The effects of sulotroban (BM13.177; SK & F 95587), a thromboxane (TX) A2/endoperoxide (PGH2) receptor blocking agent on responses to the TXA2/PGH2 mimics, U46619 and U44069, were investigated in the pulmonary vascular bed of the intact-chest cat under constant flow conditions. Injections of U46619 and U44069 directly into the perfused lobar artery caused(More)
Catheter-related sepsis continues to be a major problem with the use of central venous catheters. Controversy exists with respect to dressing material and frequency of dressing changes. Collodion is a solution of pyroxylin in a solution of 75% ether and 25% alcohol. Camphor and castor oil are added to create a flexible noncontracting dressing when applied(More)
A large number of people are affected with heart failure annually and require left ventricular assist device placement as a bridge to heart transplant or as destination therapy. When these devices become infected, it is a challenge to eradicate the infection. Failure ultimately results in a significant morbidity and mortality. Source control along with(More)
A prospective study was undertaken to compare the silver-impregnated collagen cuff (Vitacuff) with the bedside tunneled catheter. Fifty patients were randomly assigned to three groups: group I received triple-lumen catheters with Vitacuff application and a semiocclusive dressing material; group II received triple-lumen tunneled catheters with a(More)
