The superficial and deep body temperatures of 15 patients were measured before, during and for 6 hours after transvesical prostatectomy. The patients were divided randomly into two groups who received either a standard general anaesthetic or epidural analgesia. Total body heat and mean body temperature fell more rapidly in the epidural group, reaching(More)
Comparative cardiac ultrastructure, morphometry, and electrocardiography after dietary copper and selenium restriction were examined. Male weanling Long-Evans rats were fed diets that were either adequate in both copper and selenium (Cu+/Se+) or restricted in either Cu (Cu−) or Se (Se−) for 8 wk. At wk 8, electrocardiograms (ECG) anddP/dts were obtained and(More)
Restoration of anti-viral immune response may be a requisite for sustained virological response to treatment in chronic hepatitis B patients. Over a 13-month period, we examined the dynamics of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-specific CD8+ cells in six human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-A2+ hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)+ 'immunotolerant' chronic hepatitis B patients(More)
Ten patients about to undergo left-sided thoracotomy for carcinoma of the lung were entered into a crossover trial to compare cardiovascular and respiratory function during high frequency jet ventilation and conventional mechanical ventilation for one lung anaesthesia. All patients were anaesthetised with a standard technique using double lumen tubes and(More)
A safe and predictable method by which an epidural infusion sufficient for pain control in labour can be rapidly converted to a more intense block adequate for emergency Caesarean section continues to present a challenge. A prospective study was undertaken. The routine use of a bolus dose of 10 ml of 0.5% bupivacaine was assessed as a top-up for emergency(More)
Anti-D immunoglobulin is now widely used to prevent Rh-negative mothers from being sensitized by Rh-positive fetal erythrocytes. The administration of anti-D following the transfusion of large amounts of Rh-positive erythrocytes into Rh-negative individuals has been less uniformly successful in preventing primary immunization (Bowman and Chown, 1968), and(More)
