Propofol or methohexitone was given to the same twenty patients on two separate occasions during total intravenous anaesthesia for microlaryngeal surgery. With propofol the quality of induction was superior. Fewer patients required supplementation. Heart rate and blood pressure were well controlled at levels of 110-120% baseline. There were fewer(More)
The Kubicek thoracic cylinder model of impedance cardiography (IC) for measuring beat-by-beat stroke volume (SV) was evaluated in controlled studies using the electromagnetic flowmeter (FM) as the reference technique. Assuming the validity of the Kubicek equation for stroke volume calculation, IC stroke volume was found to be a linear function of EM values(More)
Blood resistivity (rho) values used in the Kubicek formula for stroke volume (SV) calculation by impedance cardiography are bench derived and do not take into account complex blood velocity movements and dynamic hematocrit changes in systole. In this study, the relevance of rho has been questioned. Thoracic resistivity (rho tau) has been calculated in dogs(More)
The accuracy of impedance cardiography for measurement of stroke volume (SV2) has been controversial. This could be, in part, due to the use in the Kubicek formula of the bench-determined blood resistivity (ϱ)-haematocrit (Hct) relationship, which does not take into account factors such as complex blood-velocity movements. In the present studyin vivo, ϱ was(More)
Continuous pulse oximetry monitoring was used to determine the incidence of hypoxaemia (arterial oxygen saturation less than or equal to 90%) occurring in the first hour of postoperative recovery. Of 107 patients studied, hypoxaemia was recorded in 80%. Twenty-eight (26%) of these patients had saturations below 80%. The average frequency (i.e., the number(More)
1. The accuracy and limitations of the non-invasive impedance cardiograph technique were examined in dogs with electromagnetic flow-transducers mounted on the aortic root over a wide range of physiological conditions of anaemia, heart rate, stroke volume and myocardial inotropy. 2. The in vivo blood resistivity (rho-haematocrit relationship is linear and(More)
The steroid induction agent, Althesin, infused intravenously in light anesthetic doses in otherwise unsedated man (84 micrograms kg-1 min-1) and rabbit (140 micrograms kg-1 min-1) causes similar autonomic and somatic effects. In the rabbit, the rise in heart rate (mainly due to central vagal blockade) and the selective depressant effects on respiratory rate(More)
Suprabulbar and bulbospinal integration of cardiorespiratory responses to cold and heat stress was studied in groups of normal, thalamic and pontine rabbits. The animals sat in an airconditioned environmental chamber in which ambient temperature (TA) was maintained sequentially at 22 degrees C, 12 degrees C, 22 degrees C and 35 degrees C, with an accuracy(More)
