A multiple puncture procedure was employed to determine delayed skin hypersensitivity in 76 patients admitted to an Intensive Care Unit. This new method enables the responses to 7 antigens to be measured after a single application. Patient reactivity was assessed on admission (D0) and during hospitalisation (D7 and D14). Results were analysed as a function(More)
A retrospective study was made of the behavioral patterns of 46 infants whose deaths were attributed to the sudden infant death syndrome. Controls were the victims' siblings. Data concerning the infants' behavioral pattern were collected retrospectively from the parents, utilizing a modification of the Carey temperament questionnaire. The parents'(More)
This study involved 15 chronic respiratory failure patients admitted to intensive care because of acute decompensation. Study of delayed hypersensitivity skin tests made it possible retrospectively to divide these patients into two groups according to whether tests were positive or negative. Group A: patient positive on admission and remaining so: or(More)
A method is proposed for comparing the orifice size and the morphology of stenotic mitral valves, removed intact at the time of replacement, with the preoperative two dimensional echocardiographic cross-sections. The excised mitral valve apparatus is suspended on a specially constructed mounting. To avoid shrinkage the orifice is stabilised with an(More)
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of first, second and third generation cephalosporins on bacterial strains. 1 920 strains are analyzed. Results establish that Cefalotin remains valuable against Gram positive pathogens, especially staphylococci. Lamoxactam is the most potent cephalosporin against Gram-negative bacteria.
The aim of this study is to determine the best antibiotic in presumptive staphylococcal infection and/or bacteriologically established staphylococcal infection before results of antibiotic sensitivity tests are available. 382 strains were analyzed. Only sensitivity or resistance to antibiotics were considered. Vancomycin is the best antistaphylococcal agent(More)
