Administration of highly concentrated, highly potent, and therefore highly dangerous drugs with syringe pumps is common in modern anaesthesia as well as in intensive care and emergency medicine. Because of their exact flow rates down to < 1 ml/h, these pumps are predestined for delivery of drugs with short half-lives, such as catecholamines and(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate whether cholecystokinin, neurotensin, and cholinergic mechanisms act as mediators of bile salt-stimulated exocrine pancreatic secretion. Ten fasting healthy subjects provided with a double-lumen tube received 2, 4, and 6 g cattle bile and 200, 400, and 600 mg Na-taurodeoxycholate (TDC) into the duodenum at 65-min(More)
We recently treated a number of patients with markedly elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels associated with acute urinary retention in a post-cardiac surgery setting. A controlled study was conducted to determine if this elevation is secondary to trauma from urethral catheterization or more directly associated with the cardiac surgery and(More)
A total of 76 men with clinically localized prostate cancer underwent surgical treatment at our institution during an 11-month period. Of the patients 26 underwent staging laparoscopic pelvic lymph node dissection followed by radical perineal prostatectomy (group 1), 24 underwent laparoscopic pelvic lymph node dissection and radical retropubic prostatectomy(More)
Auf der Basis einer Fallbeobachtung wird der Einfluß des hydrostatischen Drucks auf die Kontinuität der Applikationsgeschwindigkeit in einem geschlossenen Spritzenpumpensystem dargestellt. Bei Umlagerung eines kardiochirurgischen Patienten nach Operationsende vom Operationstisch in das Intensivbett wurde deutlich, daß die in dieser Zeitspanne häufig zu(More)
Prospective payment reimbursement systems have forced hospitals to review their costs more carefully. The result of the increased emphasis on costs is that many hospitals use costs, rather than margin, to judge the performance of ancillary services. However, arbitrary selection of performance measures for ancillary services can result in managerial(More)
