However, NIV can fail on account of the severity of the disease and technical problems, particularly at the interface. The helmet could be an alternative interface compared to face mask to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to evaluate the clinical and economic impact of introducing a rocuronium-neostigmine-sugammadex strategy into a cisatracurium-neostigmine regimen for neuromuscular block (NMB) management. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of clinical outcomes and cost-effectiveness in five operating rooms at University(More)
INTRODUCTION Early prediction of a good outcome in comatose patients after cardiac arrest still remains an unsolved problem. The main aim of the present study was to examine the accuracy of middle-latency SSEP triggered by a painful electrical stimulation on median nerves to predict a favorable outcome. METHODS No- and low-flow times, pupillary reflex,(More)
I read with great interest the paper by Sanfilippo et al., evaluating the safety and efficacy of sugammadex administered on the basis of ideal body weight (IBW) to reverse neuro-muscular blockade (NMB) at the reappearance of second twitch during train-of-four (TOF) stimulation [1]. However, this study raises several issues that deserve comment. First, the(More)
