Because it is sometimes difficult to determine the cause of hypotension in patients after cardiac operations, we assessed the value of transesophageal echocardiography in this respect, and we studied 60 consecutive patients who had hypotension despite positive inotropic medication and, in some patients, mechanical support. Echocardiographic diagnoses were(More)
This work presents a virtual learning environment which uses a distributed mixed reality remote experiment for professional education in the area of Mechatronics. The proposed collaborative environment makes use of the system named deriveSERVER, which has been developed by the Bremen University, and extends it, in order to allow the integration with remote(More)
Transesophageal echocardiography was used to extend knowledge about the impact of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) during mechanical ventilation on right and left ventricular function and right ventricular impedance. At 20 cmH2O PEEP, a progressive increase of right ventricular end-diastolic area was seen (27%) that coincided with a reduction of(More)
Transesophageal echocardiography was used to study the effects of intraaortic balloon pump counter pulsation (IABP) on left ventricular dimensions and function in 16 hypotensive patients after cardiac surgery. The short-axis cross section at midpapillary muscle level was used to determine systolic and diastolic dimensions. We found a significant decrease in(More)
In patients after cardiac surgery, hypotension, defined as a mean arterial pressure less than 65 mmHg despite adequate filling pressures and positive inotropic medication, poses a problem. In addition, it is often difficult to determine whether these patients have suffered irreversible myocardial injury or if they are likely to recover. In this study, left(More)
This study aims at presenting DiLCoS, its composition and inspiring source for Eduline. Based on a virtual communal learning system conception, Eduline has been developed by a multidisciplinary team, considering users needs and expectations. Its implementation is progressive and its space for knowledge construction is based on educational strategies and(More)
