Experimental animal models of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) have shown that the updated airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) methodologies may significantly improve oxygenation, maximize lung recruitment, and attenuate lung injury, without circulatory depression. This led us to hypothesize that early application of APRV in patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION Midazolam and propofol used alone for long-term sedation are associated with adverse effects. Sequential use may reduce the adverse effects, and lead to faster recovery, earlier extubation and lower costs. This study evaluates the effects, safety, and cost of midazolam, propofol, and their sequential use for long-term sedation in critically ill(More)
BACKGROUND PEEP decreases intrinsic PEEP (PEEPi) in COPD patients. However, the best PEEP for someone with COPD is unclear. METHODS Ten COPD patients who received invasive mechanical ventilation were enrolled. Before PEEP titration, subjects were sedated and received mandatory ventilation. PEEP increased from 0 to 15 cmH2 O. At each PEEP, peak pressure(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Pediatric basal ganglia germ cell tumors (GCTs) represent a rare subset of tumors about which little is known. We aimed to summarize the clinical features and radiological findings of this special subgroup of GCTs. METHODS From January 2010 to January 2015, 12 pediatric patients with basal ganglia GCTs were treated in our(More)
