Monitoring of cerebral oxygen saturation during resuscitation in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a feasibility study in a physician staffed emergency medical system
BackgroundDespite recent advances in resuscitation algorithms, neurological injury after cardiac arrest due to cerebral ischemia and reperfusion is one of the reasons for poor neurological outcome.Expand

Evaluation of near-infrared spectroscopy under apnea-dependent hypoxia in humans
Abstract In this study we investigated the responsiveness of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) recordings measuring regional cerebral tissue oxygenation (rSO2) during hypoxia in apneic divers. TheExpand

Influence of Apnea-induced Hypoxia on Catecholamine Release and Cardiovascular Dynamics.
Prolonged breath-hold causes complex compensatory mechanisms such as increase in blood pressure, redistribution of blood flow, and bradycardia. We tested whether apnea induces an elevation ofExpand

Postconditioning with a CpG containing oligodeoxynucleotide ameliorates myocardial infarction in a murine closed-chest model.
AIMS Toll-like receptor (TLR)9 ligand CpG-oligodeoxynucleotide (CpG-ODN) exerts preconditioning in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion. We hypothesized a postconditioning effect of CpG-ODN in a murineExpand

Diving medicine in clinical practice.
BACKGROUND Diving is a popular sport, and some recreational divers have medical risk factors. Their health can be endangered by high extracorporeal (ambient) pressure and its many systemic effects.Expand

Thrombolysis in stroke patients: Comparability of point-of-care versus central laboratory international normalized ratio
Background In acute stroke patients, thrombolysis is one gold standard therapy option within the first four hours after the ischemic event. A contraindication for thrombolysis is an InternationalExpand

Myocardial maladaptation to pressure overload in CB2 receptor-deficient mice.
BACKGROUND Adaptation to aortic valve stenosis leads to myocardial hypertrophy, which has been associated with inflammation, fibrosis and activation of the endocannabinoid system. Since theExpand

Impact of carbamylation on three different methods, HPLC, capillary electrophoresis and TINIA of measuring HbA1c levels in patients with kidney disease.
AIMS Aim of this study was to investigate whether established IFCC traceable routine measurements of HbA1c levels in patients with kidney diseases result in comparable and valid results.Expand
