183 (78–304) mmHg; arterial PCO2 36 (31–46) mmHg. No important signs of tissue damage were found at histology. Autonomous or stimulated peristalsis (or both) was present throughout the experiment. Mean O2 extraction was 7.9 ml/min/100 g (range 3.1–11.0). Mean glucose consumption was 229 mg/100 g (range 174–252). The model worked well and appears promising,(More)
According international trend patients over 70 submitted surgery in our Thoracic Surgery Unit are increasing.
