To meet the requirement of offering(More)
UNLABELLED A new commercial auditory evoked potential (AEP) monitor (A-line AEP monitor) was developed to calculate an index (ARX AEP index; AAI) by automatically using the amplitudes and latencies of the AEP. We investigated 30 patients before spine surgery. AAI; bispectral index (BIS); relative (%) delta, theta, alpha, and beta; spectral edge frequency;(More)
Die Leitlinien zur kardiopulmonalen Reanimation (CPR) aus dem Jahr 2005 beinhalten keine Aussage zur konkreten Durchführung der Basismaßnahmen (Basic Life Support, BLS) durch einen einzelnen Helfer, der mit einem Beatmungsbeutel ausgestattet ist. Denkbar sind drei Positionen: Thoraxkompressionen und Beatmung aus der Position hinter dem Kopf des Patienten(More)

Trainings require a valid assessment to give feedback to school children and to compare the outcomes of different training formats. Considering these(More)
