Invasive hemodynamic monitoring was performed on 220 critically ill surgical patients judged by clinical evaluation to have a high likelihood of surgical complications or death. Patients with markedly abnormal preoperative hemodynamic values were excluded from analysis. Data were separated into preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative time intervals(More)
Anautogeny is a reproductive strategy by which females do not reproduce until they feed. Therefore, nutritional signals must inform the reproductive tissues, and cells that the organism has reached a nutritional status suitable for triggering reproductive processes. One of the possible pathways involved in anautogeny is the "target of rapamycin" (TOR)(More)
On April 7-8, 2014, the European Hydration Institute hosted a small group of experts at Castle Combe Manor House, United Kingdom, to discuss a range of issues related to human hydration, health, and performance. The meeting included 18 recognized experts who brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to the topics under review. Eight selected topics were(More)
Surgeons who are exposed to cardiac, vascular and dialysis access, as well as the operating room staff, are at high risk for becoming infected with hepatitis. The virulence of this disease warrants maximum protection for these individuals. The eye is an exposed and documented portal of entry for blood and other potentially infectious debris. We strongly(More)
A case of massive symptomatic cystic hygroma confined to the left hemithorax and mediastinum in a 21-month-old boy is reported. The symptoms were of increasing respiratory distress and cough with fever. The mass surrounded all of the major vascular and nervous structures of the mediastinum and left hemithorax and was attached to the pericardium. It was(More)
Sequential hemodynamic and oxygen transport monitoring was performed in 33 patients with septic shock to define the temporal pattern of physiologic events. Measurements taken over a 24-h period before the hypotensive crisis, defined as the lowest initial mean arterial pressure (MAP), were compared to those taken during the 48 h thereafter. In the 24-h(More)
Physiologic abnormalities were evaluated by sequential hemodynamic and oxygen transport measurements in 33 patients with acute pancreatitis. The hypotensive crisis, which was defined as the lowest mean arterial pressure (MAP), was used as the common temporal reference point to align the data in a coherent fashion. The data of the 48-hour periods before and(More)
Sequential hemodynamic and oxygen transport monitoring was performed in 33 patients with septic shock to define physiologic patterns associated with outcome. Measurements taken over a 24-hour period prior to the hypotensive crisis, defined as the lowest initial mean arterial pressure (MAP) after a decrease of at least 30 mm Hg from initial normal values,(More)
The periostin is a matricellular protein expressed in collagen-rich tissues including some dental and periodontal tissues where it is regulated by mechanical forces, growth factors and cytokines. Interestingly the expression of this protein has been found modified in different gingival pathologies although the expression of periostin in normal human gingiva(More)
Although pneumatic antishock trousers (PT) are widely used in prehospital and emergency care, little is known about their cardiorespiratory effects in critically ill patients. To examine this issue, we measured hemodynamic and oxygen metabolism variables in ten critically ill patients. All patients were studied with PTs uninflated, after five minutes of PT(More)
