The purpose of this study was to check if medical students of one of the Universities of Medical Sciences in Poland are prepared to do basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The research was undertaken on groups of 50 first year students and 50 sixth year students at the time when they take an exam. To have wider insight into students' ability to perform(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluates possible circadian rhythms during prolonged midazolam infusion in 27 pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) children under mechanical ventilation. METHODS Blood samples for midazolam and 1-OH-midazolam assay were collected throughout the infusion at different times of the day. The blood pressure, heart rate and body(More)
The major objective was to assess the time period from a witnessed ventricular fibrillation (VF) to the first defibrillation (DEF) in a simulated manikin scenario, while the minor objective was to analyze the most common errors that occurred during DEF and the maintenance of 2-min intervals during resuscitation. We examined 210 students (medical faculty(More)
Endoscopic procedures involving the gastrointestinal tract have been successfully developed in paediatric practice over the last two decades, improving both diagnosis and treatment in many children's gastrointestinal diseases. In this group of patients, experience and co-operation between paediatricians/endoscopists and paediatric anaesthesiologists should(More)
BACKGROUND Propofol is a commonly used agent in total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA). However, the link between its pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics has not been fully characterized in children yet. Our aim was to determine the quantitative relationship between the venous plasma concentration and bispectral index (BIS) effect in a heterogeneous group of(More)
BACKGROUND Human cognitive functioning can be assessed using different methods of testing. Age, level of education, and gender may influence the results of cognitive tests. MATERIAL AND METHODS The well-known Trail Making Test (TMT), which is often used to measure the frontal lobe function, and the experimental test of Interval Timing (IT) were compared.(More)
BACKGROUND The main changes to the European Resuscitation Guidelines in 2005 were relate to the tidal volume of artificial breaths, the position and depth of chest compressions, and th number of resuscitation cycles. To find out if these guidelines were widely known, we assessed the knowledge and skills of physicians and nurses working in a paediatric(More)
BACKGROUND Several surveys have been published, documenting the lack of knowledge of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) among anaesthesiology residents. As a result, we decided to assess the competency of local trainees in basic and advanced CPR. METHODS The survey was conducted among 26 residents in anaesthesiology who were asked twice (at the(More)
The main objective of problem-based learning (PBL) is to provoke students to solve a new problem by themselves. The aim of this study was to investigate whether PBL was a better method of teaching basic and advanced life support to medical students compared with the classical method. The research was undertaken in 2002 in accordance with the European(More)
Medical rescue teams might be exposed to the risk of accidental poisoning while performing rescue procedures. Exposure to the risk of lethal carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) concentrations is a rare situation. This case study describes rescuing a patient who suffered from sudden cardiac arrest due to accidental CO<sub>2</sub> poisoning. The victim was(More)
