To determine what effect the addition of epinephrine has on bupivacaine toxicity, toxic doses of bupivacaine were administered to awake spontaneously breathing pigs. Twenty animals were randomized to one of two groups. One group received an infusion of bupivacaine with epinephrine (5 micrograms/ml) at a rate of 2 mg.kg-1.min-1; the other received an(More)
BACKGROUND The co-existence of obstructive and central sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAS) and periodic breathing is common in patients with and without underlying heart diseases. While automatic continuous positive airway pressure (APAP) has proven to effectively treat OSAS, the adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) sufficiently improves periodic breathing.(More)
BACKGROUND Automatic continuous positive airway pressure (automatic CPAP, APAP) is an effective treatment option in the obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). The differentiation of obstructive and central respiratory events is crucial in adjusting the optimal pressure in this treatment mode. In this pilot study we evaluated a new automatic CPAP(More)
