Monitoring of the anesthetized patient, the anesthesia machine, and the patient-machine interface is an essential component of anesthetic practice in order to prevent anesthetic-related injuries resulting from equipment failure or human error. While the optimal monitor to detect anesthetic problems (hypoxia, esophageal intubation, hemodynamic compromise,(More)
In a prospective study of 99 patients with coronary artery disease, reperfusion of the heart after a period of ischemia (protected by contemporary techniques of myocardial preservation) resulted in spontaneous resumption of cardiac electrical activity in 53%, spontaneous defibrillation in 10%, reperfusion ventricular fibrillation (VF) in 32% and(More)
Desmopressin acetate is used to reduce blood loss after cardiac surgery. However, there have been reports that hypotension can occur with infusion of desmopressin and that postoperative blood loss is not reduced. In this randomized, double-blinded study, we investigated the effects of desmopressin on hemodynamics, coagulation, and postoperative blood loss(More)
The efficacy of lidocaine during myocardial reperfusion in coronary artery bypass surgery was evaluated in 20 patients randomly assigned to a control group (n = 10) or to receive lidocaine, 1 mg/kg intravenously 5 min before aortic unclamping and cardiac reperfusion, followed by infusion at 40 micrograms X kg-1 X min-1 (n = 10). We recorded ECG leads II and(More)
A prospective study in 12 adult male patients undergoing coronary-artery revascularization was conducted to compare the effects of a morphine versus a halothane anesthetic technique on several indices of myocardial oxygen supply and demand. Indices reflecting myocardial contractility, preload, afterload, and heart rate were measured. Undesirable increases(More)
The anesthetic potency and effectiveness of alfentanil and morphine were established by determining the effects of increasing drug doses on the alveolar anesthetic requirement of halothane to maintain a constant anesthetic (MAC) level. Six selected doses of alfentanil and four of morphine were administered to groups of mechanically ventilated rats(More)
