Electrocautery-induced pacemaker malfunction during surgery
We report a case of electrocautery-induced pacemaker failure that resulted in asystole in a 15-year-old girl scheduled for cardiac surgery. Her pacemaker was converted to the asynchronous mode theExpand
Combined preemptive and preventive analgesia in morbidly obese patients undergoing open gastric bypass: A pilot study.
PURPOSE It is difficult to balance adequate pain control against the risk of sedation and depressed breathing in severely obese patients. This study assesses the effects of combined preemptive andExpand

  • 1 January 2015
Ejection fraction (EF) has been viewed as an important index in assessing the contractile state of the left ventricle (LV). However, it is frequently inadequate for the diagnosis and management ofExpand
Additional hemodynamic measurements with an esophageal Doppler monitor: a preliminary report of compliance, force, kinetic energy, and afterload in the clinical setting
The esophageal Doppler monitor (EDM) is a minimally-invasive hemodynamic device which evaluates both cardiac output (CO), and fluid status, by estimating stroke volume (SV) and calculating heart rateExpand
