Of 1265 patients admitted to the CCU with the diagnosis of acute MI, 96 (7.6%) developed ventricular fibrillation within 72 hours following admission. Of these 96, 35 (36.5%) had secondary VF associated with left ventricular failure; they had a high in-hospital mortality of 57.1%. The remaining 61 (63.5%) had primary VF, i.e. VF occurring in the absence of(More)
In 15 patients with asthma attack, evidence of the uneven distribution of air flow during controlled ventilation was obtained by detection of ventilatory asynchronism expressed by the incurvated profile of tracheal pressure waves associated with the repetitive interruptions of air flow. It was observed that low values of PEEP (mean: 5 +/- 2.5 cm H 2O)(More)
Among 1013 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), 104 (10%) developed complete bundle-branch block (BBB). The clinical characteristics and the short- and long-term prognosis were similar in the 53 patients with right and the 51 patients with left BBB. Compared to the 909 patients without this conduction disturbance, these 104 patients(More)
