INTRODUCTION Passive leg raising (PLR) is a simple reversible maneuver that mimics rapid fluid loading and increases cardiac preload. The effects of this endogenous volume expansion on stroke volume enable the testing of fluid responsiveness with accuracy in spontaneously breathing patients. However, this maneuver requires the determination of stroke volume(More)
OBJECTIVE Standard non-invasive blood pressure (BP) monitoring is an intermittent, discontinuous procedure. Beat-to-beat BP monitoring requires invasive measurement via an arterial catheter and may be associated with serious complications. The Infinity CNAP SmartPod (Dräger Medical AG & Co.

We report a case of severe oxygen embolism after wound irrigation under pressure with hydrogen peroxide into a closed or partially closed cavity. The accident was observed during a surgical dressing of a large pelvis gangrene area, after a 250 ml injection of hydrogen peroxide. Suddenly occurred a decrease in PETCO(2) and SpO(2), and then heart arrhythmia.(More)
