A double-blind, randomised trial was conducted in 24 patients without cardiopulmonary disorders (20-43 years), to assess the effect of an intravenous bolus of alfentanil on the circulatory and catecholamine responses to rapid sequence induction of general anaesthesia. Induction included injection of thiopentone 5 mg/kg and suxamethonium 1.5 mg/kg in rapid(More)
Right and left ventricular ejection fractions (RVEF and LVEF) were measured by radionuclide angiography in 423 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). All investigations were performed at hospital discharge. Of 304 patients with first AMI, 26% had normal ejection fractions, 10% had a decrease in RVEF only, 46% a decrease in LVEF only, and 18%(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the natural course of left ventricular (LV) volumes in the convalescent phase of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Fifty-seven patients were examined 2 weeks and approximately 1 year after AMI by a radionuclide method allowing determination of absolute LV volumes. After 1 year the patients had fewer clinical and(More)
Left ventricle systolic and diastolic functional parameters were measured by gated equilibrium radionuclide cardiography in 12 healthy men (age 33-51 years) at rest and during graded supine exercise. The leftventricle end-diastolic volume showed an initial small (11%) increase during low submaximal exercise [from mean 163 (SD 40) at rest to mean 181 (SD 48)(More)
The purpose of the present investigation was to evaluate the use of 99mTc-DTPA (diethylenetriaminepenta-acetate) gamma camera renography for the study of kidney function as well as morphology. Sixty-nine children with urinary tract infection or congenital hydronephrosis aged 6 days to 13.6 years were studied. A method for determination of the glomerular(More)
The temporal blood pressure course and the diurnal profile of the renin-angiotensin system were examined in 13 patients with essential hypertension receiving hydrochlorothiazide and enalapril once daily. Blood samples were taken and blood pressure was measured before the habitual morning dose of hydrochlorothiazide and enalapril (at 8.00 a.m.) and at seven(More)
Direct and quantitative vitamin B12 absorption studies were performed in 25 patients with disorders in the distal small intestine using whole body counting as the gold standard. Simultaneously, vitamin B12 absorption was also determined by the more simple stool spot test (SST) which incorporates 51CrCl3 as a nonabsorbable marker. The SST provided a reliable(More)
Absolute left ventricular volumes, normalized to body surface area, were determined by a count-based radionuclide technique in 189 patients with myocardial infarction (MI). All examinations were performed in the second week after MI. Fifty-three percent of the patients had an increased end-diastolic volume index (EDVI) and 72% an increased end-systolic(More)
Systolic left ventricular function was examined by radionuclide ventriculography in 12 habitual smokers with known or suspected ischaemic heart disease, aged 33-69 years, before, during, and after smoking of two cigarettes in a row and was repeated on a non-smoking control day. Plasma concentrations of adrenaline, noradrenaline, renin, and angiotensin II(More)
