Non-invasive mechanical ventilation (NIV) has proved to be an excellent technique in selected critically ill patients with different forms of acute respiratory failure. 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)
In Reply: Dr. Carron raises the question that patients receiving thromboprophylaxis with low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) and antiplatelet drugs acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) might have an increased bleeding risk if exposed to sugam-madex. He referred to the study by Davidson et al. 1 that showed an increased bleeding risk for the combination of(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)
Laparoscopic surgery in a morbidly obese, high-risk cardiac patient: the benefits of deep neuromuscular block and sugammadex Editor—Intraperitoneal insufflation of carbon dioxide for lap-aroscopic surgery can produce cardiac depression that is poorly tolerated in high-risk cardiac patients with a low ejection fraction (EF). 1 2 Consequently, carboperitoneum(More)
