Global cerebrovenous oxygenation was evaluated before and after intravenous administration of pentobarbital sodium for the management of refractory intracranial hypertension in 151 comatose patients who had acute traumatic brain swelling. Two groups of patients were identified: a group in which the jugular oxyhemoglobin saturation (SjO2) remained at or(More)
BACKGROUND Although vitamin deficiencies are rare in the United States, acute reductions in concentrations of plasma retinol (vitamin A) or alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) have been associated with impaired immune responses in some clinical settings. OBJECTIVE The objectives were to determine the plasma concentrations of retinol and alpha-tocopherol in(More)
Introduction oothing effects of music on human psychology and behavior are well known (Koelsch, 2010). Classical music also appears to influence the behavior and/or physiology of captive animals in a manner suggestive of enhanced well-being (Chikahisa et al. Introduction: This study was designed to investigate the effects of music in Wistar rats after(More)
Cerebral extraction of oxygen (CEO2) represents a practical physiologic measure, with multiple clinical applications. This variable is calculated as the arterio-jugular difference in oxyhemoglobin saturation (from arterial blood and from the jugular bulb). Because it involves global measurements, the CEO2 does not allow detection of regional abnormalities(More)
