In awake spontaneously breathing mice, inhaling gaseous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) produced a "suspended animation-like" metabolic status with hypothermia and reduced O2 demand, thus protecting fromExpand

Effects of Pretreatment Hypothermia During Resuscitated Porcine Hemorrhagic Shock
Objectives:Accidental hypothermia increases mortality and morbidity after hemorrhage, but controversial data are available on the effects of therapeutic hypothermia. Therefore, we tested theExpand

Comparison of carbamylated erythropoietin-FC fusion protein and recombinant human erythropoietin during porcine aortic balloon occlusion-induced spinal cord ischemia/reperfusion injury
PurposeRecombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) attenuated ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury-induced spinal cord damage. Since carbamylated EPO derivatives are stated to be devoid of rhEPO sideExpand

Carbamylated erythropoietin-FC fusion protein and recombinant human erythropoietin during porcine kidney ischemia/reperfusion injury
PurposeTo test the hypothesis that a carbamylated EPO-FC fusion protein (cEPO-FC) or recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) would protect against kidney ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in pigsExpand

Effects of ventilation with 100% oxygen during early hyperdynamic porcine fecal peritonitis*
Objective: Early goal-directed therapy aims at balancing tissue oxygen delivery and demand. Hyperoxia (i.e., pure oxygen breathing) has not been studied in this context, since sepsis increases oxygenExpand

Comparison of cardiac, hepatic, and renal effects of arginine vasopressin and noradrenaline during porcine fecal peritonitis: a randomized controlled trial
IntroductionInfusing arginine vasopressin (AVP) in vasodilatory shock usually decreases cardiac output and thus systemic oxygen transport. It is still a matter of debate whether this vasoconstrictionExpand

Effects of intravenous sulfide during resuscitated porcine hemorrhagic shock*
Objective:Controversial data are available on the effects of hydrogen sulfide during hemorrhage. Because the clinical significance of hydrogen sulfide administration in rodents may not be applicableExpand

Effects of Intravenous Sulfide During Porcine Aortic Occlusion-Induced Kidney Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury
In rodents, inhaled H2S and injection of H2S donors protected against kidney ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. During porcine aortic occlusion, the H2S donor Na2S (sulfide) reduced energyExpand

Adrenomedullin binding improves catecholamine responsiveness and kidney function in resuscitated murine septic shock
PurposeAdrenomedullin (ADM) has been referred to as a double-edged sword during septic shock: On one hand, ADM supplementation improved organ perfusion and function, attenuated systemic inflammation,Expand

Hemodynamic, metabolic, and organ function effects of pure oxygen ventilation during established fecal peritonitis-induced septic shock
Objective:To test the hypothesis whether pure oxygen ventilation is equally safe and beneficial in fully developed fecal peritonitis-induced septic shock as hyperoxia initiated at the induction ofExpand
