Cerebral oximetry in cardiac anesthesia.
TLDR
Clinical validity and applicability of cerebral oximetry based on near-infrared spectroscopy for cardiac surgical patients is reviewed. Expand
Monitoring of brain oxygen saturation (INVOS) in a protocol to direct blood transfusions during cardiac surgery: a prospective randomized clinical trial
TLDR
The data suggest that INVOS could be a useful tool as part of an algorithm to guide decisions for blood transfusion in cardiac surgery, and circumvent the limitations of this study. Expand
Thyroid hormone levels improve the prediction of mortality among patients admitted to the intensive care unit
TLDR
Endocrine alterations are frequently observed in severely ill patients, they relate to mortality, and of particular importance, as the current study showed, they improve the authors' predictive ability when used in conjunction with well established severity scores. Expand
Intra-operative intravenous fluid restriction reduces perioperative red blood cell transfusion in elective cardiac surgery, especially in transfusion-prone patients: a prospective, randomized
TLDR
The data suggest that fluid restriction reduces intraoperative PRC transfusions without significantly increasing postoperative transfusions in cardiac surgery; this effect is more pronounced in transfusion-prone patients. Expand
Contribution of endocrine parameters in predicting outcome of multiple trauma patients in an intensive care unit.
TLDR
In critically ill multiple trauma patients, age, TSH, Cortisol post-Synacthen and DHEAS values upon admission to the ICU, combined with the APACHE II score, may predict outcome more accurately than the APache II score alone. Expand
Global patient outcomes after elective surgery: prospective cohort study in 27 low-, middle- and high-income countries
TLDR
Despite lower baseline risk, outcomes were similar in low- and middle-income compared with high-income countries and should also address the need for safe perioperative care. Expand
Real-world experience of extracranial carotid artery interventions for atherosclerotic disease during a 10-year period.
TLDR
Long-term outcomes regarding mortality, restenosis, and risk of stroke or MACE are similar between CAS and CEA for asymptomatic patients, however larger studies are needed to clarify this issue. Expand
Predicting ICU survival: A meta-level approach
TLDR
A prototype meta-level predicting approach concerning Intensive Care Unit (ICU) survival is proposed and the predicting processes of ICU survival may go "one step forward", by using classic composite assessment indicators as variables. Expand
Endovascular treatment of traumatic internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysm.
TLDR
Endovascular therapy tends to be an effective option for the treatment of TICAP with low morbidity and mortality rates. Expand
A prospective study on adrenal cortex responses and outcome prediction in acute critical illness: results from a large cohort of 203 mixed ICU patients
TLDR
In general ICU patients a blunted cortisol response to ACTH within 24 h of admission is an independent predictor for poor outcome, and baseline cortisol or adrenal androgens are not of prognostic significance. Expand
