OBJECTIVE The study of the disturbances of arterial gases and the changes in the arterial pH which are present in patients with liver cirrhosis and ascites and their modification after the disappearance of ascites by treatment. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Open study,with protocol and prospective, to evaluate the changes in measurement of the arterial gases and(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the evolution and ventilatory function measured by spirometry after surgery with the Harrington method for idiopathic thoracic scoliosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective study with evaluation of changes in scoliosis angle following the Cobb method, as well as ventilatory parameters after surgery, measured after a mean time of 19.2(More)
BACKGROUND The thoracic cavity plays an important role in the mechanical ventilatory function, and the alteration of some of its structures, such as those which occur in decompensated cirrhosis of the liver, for example the presence of ascites and muscle atrophy, directly influence its normal function. METHODS In the present study we have evaluated the(More)
In order to determine the validity for our population of the theoretical reference values available in the literature today, we studied respiratory muscle force by calculating maximum expiratory pressure PEmax and maximum inspiratory pressure (PImax) in 100 healthy subjects in Asturias (50 women) between 17 and 80 years-old (mean 40.4 +/- 19.3 years). We(More)
