OBJECTIVE To compare the time spent within a predefined safe range of CO2 (30-60 mmHg) during conventional ventilation between infants who were monitored with distal end-tidal CO2 (dETCO2, or capnography) and those who were not. STUDY DESIGN For this randomized, controlled multicenter study, ventilated infants with a double-lumen endotracheal tube were(More)
Fibrinogen labeled with iodine 125 was used to detect deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in 35 patients during their course and convalescence from acute myocardial infarction. Clinical status was assessed and scored with the use of a modified coronary prognostic index. According to the prognostic scores, patients were allocated to one of two groups. Of 27 patients(More)

In order to evaluate the intestinal absorption of calcium in end-stage renal disease, whole-body 47Ca retention was determined using a whole-body counter in 18 patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis and in 12 normal volunteers. The results of the above study were compared with those obtained by measuring plasma radioactivity after oral load of 47Ca. A(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess within a feasibility study the correlation, agreement, and trending of continuous integrated distal capnography (dCap) with PaCO(2) in infants on HFV. STUDY DESIGN Sixteen premature infants [median (range) gestational age: 26.5 (24.7-34.7) weeks], ventilated with HFV (mean ± SD airway pressure: 8.1 ± 2.1 cmH(2) O, FiO(2) : 0.39 ± 0.21)(More)
