Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PNV) is a common disorder at the forefront of ambulatory care issues. New antiemetic drugs and improved anesthetic techniques have decreased the incidence of anesthesia-induced PNV. Patient characteristics and surgical factors are now largely responsible for postoperative emesis. Clinicians need to understand these factors(More)
1. The activity of thymidine kinase in rat liver supernatant decreased with development to a value in the adult that was 1% of that in the 17-day foetus. 2. The foetal enzyme was more stable than the adult to gel filtration on Sephadex G-25 at 0 degrees . 3. The greater stability of the foetal enzyme to incubation at 45 degrees was attributable to the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The advantages of albumin over less costly alternative fluids continue to be debated. Meta-analyses focusing on survival have been inconclusive, and other clinically relevant end-points have not been systematically addressed. We sought to determine whether albumin confers significant clinical benefit in acute illness compared with(More)
OBJECTIVE The effects of hydroxyethyl starch on bleeding after cardiopulmonary bypass were determined. METHODS A meta-analysis was performed of postoperative blood loss in randomized clinical trials of hydroxyethyl starch versus albumin for fluid management in adult cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. Impacts of hydroxyethyl starch molecular weight and molar(More)
BACKGROUND CARCS (computer-assisted resident candidate selection) is a database application developed in 1983 at the Department of Anesthesiology of the Medical University of South Carolina to deal with the greatly increased quantity of applicant information. This article relates a representative sample of CARCS data to the process of selecting residents in(More)
Postoperative pain is commonly treated with significant doses of narcotics, occasionally resulting in side effects including nausea, pruritus, and respiratory depression. One potential advantage of regional anesthesia is profound postoperative analgesia that reduces exposure to potent narcotics. To evaluate the efficacy of two long-acting local anesthetics,(More)
In this study, we sought to determine the long-term effect of the additional year of anesthesia residency (postgraduate year [PGY]-4) instituted in 1989 by the American Board of Anesthesiology on the number of individuals who pursued 12-mo subspecialty anesthesia training. We tested the hypothesis that extending education by a year would decrease the number(More)
