Since infusion of sodium bicarbonate as a buffer seems to be safer than other buffer compounds (lactate, gluconate, acetate)that indirectly convert into it within the liver, We hypothesized tight(More)
Combinations of hypnotics with or without opiates are commonly used in agitated patients. We hypothesized that combination of haloperidol-propofol in comparison with midazolam-propofol would lower consumption of propofol and lead to better hemodynamic and respiratory profile during sedation of agitated patients. Among 108 patients admitted in our ICU, 60(More)

However, randomized controlled clinical trials are still needed for evaluation of this treatment as a standard option. This preliminary study was aimed to evaluate the effect of NFT on continuous attention (CA) and(More)
Extraskeletal osteosarcoma (ExOS) is a rare and well-known entity. Three to 4% of ExOSs occur in the head and neck region but anecdotally in the central nervous system (CNS). Primary intracranial osteosarcoma (PIOS) can originate from the skull, brain parenchyma, or meninges. A 3-year-old boy with history of head trauma 2 weeks before admission is presented(More)
