XENON was discovered in 1898 and first used as an anesthetic in 1951. It is more potent than nitrous oxide (N2O) with a minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of approximately 71%, and its low blood-gas partition coefficient of 0.14 (recently recalculated as 0.115) results in rapid induction and recovery. Interest in xenon is high because of medical and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE This study investigated the distribution of pressures within a model trachea, produced by five different tracheal gas insufflation devices. The aim was to suggest a suitable design of a tracheal gas insufflation device for clinical use. METHODS Each device was tested using insufflation flow rates of 5 and 10 L min(-1). For each(More)
A linguistic analysis of the narrative which appears in patient documents, in the domain of urology, has shown that the information is conveyed by a small number of semantic statement types composed of syntactic combinations of medical and English word classes. It has been shown that words from different classes occurring in the diagnosis for the patient(More)
We describe a case of peri-operative cardiac arrest, severe right ventricular failure and pulmonary hypertension in a 60-yr-old woman with interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. Inhaled nitric oxide therapy rapidly improved arterial oxygenation and haemodynamic variables, allowing recovery and weaning from mechanical ventilation. Subsequently, the patient was(More)
Development of image-guided interventional systems is growing up rapidly in the recent years. These new systems become an essential part of the modern minimally invasive surgical procedures, especially for the cardiac surgery. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a recently developed surgical technique to treat severe aortic valve stenosis in(More)
A 33-year-old primigravida presented at 32 weeks gestation with increasing shortness of breath related to left ventricular failure. She had severe bilateral ventricular dilatation of unknown aetiology. An urgent caesarean section was required when she failed to improve on medical therapy, and for this she requested general anaesthesia. The patient had a(More)
