In addition to its efficacy in reducing LDL-cholesterol, rosuvastatin has been shown to significantly decrease plasma triacylglycerol. The use of rosuvastatin may be beneficial in patients with type 2 diabetes, who usually have increased triacylglycerol levels. However, its effects on the metabolism of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins in type 2 diabetic(More)
Forty consecutively hospitalized patients who had overdosed primarily with a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) were observed until discharge. The severity of the overdose was documented by serial measurements of plasma TCA levels. Nineteen of the patients became comatose, 16 required supportive respiration, and 2 died. Individual symptoms in the 13 patients(More)
1. The mechanical work of breathing was measured from simultaneous records of endoesophageal pressure and tidal volume on three normal young subjects exercising on a bicycle-ergometer. The subjects were allowed to increase their ventilation with respiratory rate either spontaneous or regulated by a metronome (f ranging from 20 to 60 cycles per min). 2. At(More)
Forty patients ingesting tricyclic antidepressant (TAD) overdoses were studied as a pharmacologic model to determine whether total tricyclic antidepressant plasma levels correlated with major adverse effects and electrocardiographic findings. Maximum TAD plasma levels were higher in patients who died (p less than 0.025) or had cardiac arrest (p less than(More)
