Our objective was to determine the effects of vasodilatory treatment with epoprostenol (PGI2) and nitroglycerin (NTG) on systemic oxygen delivery index (DO2) and hepatic venous oxygen saturation (SvhO2) after liver transplantation. This prospective study used repeated-measures design. Fifteen adult patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT)(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To investigate whether automatic tube compensation (ATC) or conventional pressure support (PS) is suitable to compensate for the work of breathing imposed by the breathing circuit without altering the breathing pattern. METHODS Breathing pattern and work of breathing were measured in healthy volunteers. After a 20 min period of quiet(More)
Mit Interesse haben wir den Fallbericht von Bein et al. (Unfallchirurg [2000] 103: 787–790) zur Beatmung in Bauchlage bei einem 5-jährigen Kind mit Thoraxund stumpfer Bauchverletzung gelesen. Wir stimmen mit den Autoren völlig überein, dass die maschinelle Beatmung mit PEEP eine etablierte Standardtherapie zur Behandlung der posttraumatischen(More)
Push-pull cannulae were implanted into the mediobasal hypothalamus of ovariectomized (ovx) rats. After recovery animals were treated with estradiolbenzoate (E2B) or oil and they were perfused 3 days later. Only the E2B-treated animals which exhibited prolactin surges in the afternoon without concomitant LH surges were used in this study. In ovx animals(More)
Due to its paramount adsorption capacity, activated charcoal is supposed to be the remedy of choice for binding a variety of drugs in the gastrointestinal tract. Hence it is surprising--at least according to the advice of German textbooks--that activated charcoal is only recommended for administration after time-consuming treatments like induced emesis and(More)
Fragestellung: Ist die automatische Tubuskompensation (ATC) oder die konventionelle inspiratorische Druckunterstützung (pressure support, PS) geeignet, die zusätzliche, durch den endotrachealen Tubus und das Beatmungsgerät entstehende, Atemarbeit zu kompensieren? Methodik: In dieser Untersuchung an freiwilligen gesunden Probanden wurden die Atemarbeit und(More)
