OBJECTIVES Biologically variable ventilation improves lung function in acute respiratory distress models. If enhanced recruitment is responsible for these results, then biologically variable ventilation might promote distribution of exogenous surfactant to nonaerated areas. Our objectives were to confirm model predictions of enhanced recruitment with(More)
OBJECT A neuroimaging assessment tool to visualize global and regional impairments in cerebral blood flow (CBF) and cerebrovascular responsiveness in individual patients with concussion remains elusive. Here the authors summarize the safety, feasibility, and results of brain CO2 stress testing in adolescents with postconcussion syndrome (PCS) and healthy(More)
Biologically variable mechanical ventilation (Vbv)-using a computer-controller to mimic the normal variability in spontaneous breathing-improves gas exchange in a model of severe lung injury (Lefevre, G. R., S. E. Kowalski, L. G. Girling, D. B. Thiessen, W. A. C. Mutch. Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med. 1996;154:1567-1572). Improved oxygenation with Vbv, in(More)
BACKGROUND Perioperative care for children with autism spectrum disorder may be challenging. Previous investigators recommend development of an individualized perioperative management plan with caregiver involvement. AIM The primary goal was to determine the usefulness of an individualized plan based on the decision to provide preoperative sedation(More)
