The beta-endorphin content was measured in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood plasma of patients before and after 30 minutes of transcutaneous transcerebral electric stimulation in the electric anesthesia mode. The output current was biphasic and rectangular. It was composed of high-frequency pulse trains (peak-to-peak intensity 250-300 mA, frequency(More)
Disorders of glucose metabolism were investigated in 177 patients undergoing cardiac surgery. In group I patients, the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) priming fluid contained glucose. Patients in group II received neither glucose nor insulin during the operation. Group III received insulin-glucose therapy (IGT) during the operation (insulin, 1 U/kg/h, glucose,(More)
The examination of 147 surgical patients with cardiac diseases revealed that the onset of an operative intervention (skin incision) was accompanied with a substantial rise in endogenous insulin antibody titers in the blood of the operated patients, which is likely to trigger glucose metabolic disturbances. Insulin, 0.8-1.0 U/(kg/hour), and glucose, 0.4-0.5(More)
The discovery of opiate receptors, of endogenous peptide ligands possessing morphinomimetic properties when administered by the intragastric or systemic routes, and of enzymes concerned in their synthesis and intrasynaptic inactivation has led investigators to conclude that enkephalinergic and endorphinergic opiate systems performing a protective and(More)
