Clinical review: Update on hemodynamic monitoring - a consensus of 16
Hemodynamic monitoring plays a fundamental role in the management of acutely ill patients. With increased concerns about the use of invasive techniques, notably the pulmonary artery catheter, to… Expand

Almost one mountain trekker or climber out of two develops several symptoms of high altitude illness after a rapid ascent (> 300 m/day) to an altitude above 4000 m. Individual susceptibility is the… Expand
High-Altitude Pulmonary Edema Is Initially Caused by an Increase in Capillary Pressure
BackgroundHigh-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is characterized by severe pulmonary hypertension and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid changes indicative of inflammation. It is not known, however, whether… Expand
Pathogenesis of high-altitude pulmonary edema: inflammation is not an etiologic factor.
CONTEXT The pathogenesis of high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is considered an altered permeability of the alveolar-capillary barrier secondary to intense pulmonary vasoconstriction and high… Expand
