BACKGROUND The Brugada syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by life-threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmias due to cardiac conductance disturbance without structural heart disease. Mutations of the SCN5A gene cause either a reduction in cardiac Na(+) channel expression or alterations in channel-gating properties, leading to a reduction(More)
INTRODUCTION Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) is linked to inflammation, but data on the patterns of hematological indices and C-reactive protein (CRP) in MAS are lacking. The aim of the study was to evaluate CRP, white blood cell count (WBC), absolute neutrophil count (ANC), and immature-to-total neutrophil ratio (IT-ratio) in MAS and to assess their(More)
A system suitable for prolonged continuous in vivo measurement of human arterial PO2 is described. The system uses a polarographic electrode developed by Kimmich and Kreuzer, inserted in a specially made shunt between the radial artery and an antecubital vein. Nhe electrode surface is maintained in a fixed position parallel to the flow of blood; blood(More)
Aim of this study was to describe the course of perinatal factors in neonates with meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) from 1990 to 2010 and to determine risk factors for a severe course of the disease.All neonates with MAS hospitalized in our level III neonatal intensive care unit from 1990 to 2010.Retrospective analysis of trends of perinatal factors in(More)
In 13 anesthetized or awake dogs, on cardiopulmonary bypass, we varied PaO2 and PaCO2 while continuously monitoring ventilatory responses and mechanics, to assess the dog's ability to maintain eupneic ventilation for any chemical drive. In a second group of 13 dogs on cardiopulmonary bypass we repeated the tests after removal of both lungs, to assess the(More)
