In contrast to adults, cardiac arrest in infants and children does not usually result from a primary cardiac cause. More often it is the terminal result of progressive respiratory failure or shock, also called an asphyxial arrest. Asphyxia begins with a variable period of systemic hypoxemia, hypercapnea, and acidosis, progresses to bradycardia and(More)
UNLABELLED In this study, we examined the emergence characteristics of children tracheally extubated while deeply anesthetized with desflurane (Group D) or sevoflurane (Group S). Forty-eight children were randomly assigned to one of the two groups. At the end of the operation, all subjects were tracheally extubated while breathing 1.5 times the minimal(More)
Previous research on gender differences and collaboration technology illustrate the need to investigate gender issues as early as possible in the development cycle in order to avoid any negative consequences the technology may impose. Therefore we are investigating the potential of 3D telepresence technology now when only a proof-of-concept demonstration of(More)
Pharmacists at the 1995 American College of Clinical Pharmacy Pediatric Practice and Research Network meeting volunteered to act as coordinators at their sites and survey pediatric and neonatal nurses, pharmacists, and physicians regarding dependency in neonatal and pediatric patients after therapeutic administration of narcotics. Thirteen (60%) of 21(More)
We performed a prospective, randomized, double-blinded study in 60 postoperative pediatric patients aged 6 wk to 7 yr to compare the efficacy of butorphanol given epidurally or intravenously in preventing the side effects of epidural morphine. Three groups of patients received 60 micrograms/kg epidural morphine; 20 patients also received epidural(More)
UNLABELLED We studied the emergence characteristics of unpremedicated children tracheally extubated while deeply anesthetized ("deep extubation") with isoflurane or sevoflurane. Forty children were assigned to one of two groups, Group I or Group S. At the end of the operation, Group I patients were extubated while breathing 1.5 times the minimum alveolar(More)
Pulmonary aspiration is a cause of anesthesia-related morbidity and mortality, with little change in incidence over the past 20 years. Rapid sequence induction is a common procedure in obese patients, who appear to be more at risk for both pulmonary gastric aspiration and difficult airways, and is required in obese and sleep apnea syndrome patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION Addressing an unexpected shortfall of intensivists requires early identification and training of appropriate personnel. The purpose of this study was to determine how U.S. medical students are currently educated and tested on acute care health principles. HYPOTHESIS/METHODS: A survey of critical care education with telephone follow-up was(More)
