An optimal transition time to extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation for predicting good neurological outcome in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a propensity-matched study
IntroductionProlonged conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CCPR) is associated with a poor prognosis in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients. Alternative methods can be needed toExpand

Optimal timing of thoracoscopic drainage and decortication for empyema.
BACKGROUND Although video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) pleural drainage and decortication have been proven to be effective treatments in the early stages of empyema, the optimal timing of VATS isExpand

Analysis of pulsatile and nonpulsatile blood flow effects in different degrees of stenotic vasculature.
Vessel lumens that have been chronically narrowed by atherosclerosis should be increased in flow velocity and intrastenotic area pressure to maintain an equal flow. This might be followed by aExpand
