INTRODUCTION New technology using partial carbon dioxide rebreathing has been developed to measure cardiac output. Because rebreathing increases respiratory effort, we investigated whether a newly developed system with 35 s rebreathing causes a lesser increase in respiratory effort under partial ventilatory support than does the conventional system with 50(More)
BACKGROUND Device-associated healthcare-associated infections (DA-HAIs) are a major problem in pediatric intensive care units (PICUs). However, there are no data available regarding the incidences of DA-HAIs in PICUs in Japan and their influences on length of PICU stay and mortality. The objective of this study was to investigate the incidences of three(More)
The mortality rate among patients suffering acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains high despite implementation at clinical centers of the lung protective ventilatory strategies recommended by the International Guidelines for Management of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock, 2012. This suggests that such strategies are still sub-optimal for some ARDS(More)
The case of a 36-year-old female typist with familial bilateral flexion-supination deformity at the PIP joint of the long fingers is presented. This deformity was ascribed to hypoplasia of the radial lateral band and retaining structures of the long extensor tendon. The deformity was corrected by bridging the second dorsal interosseous muscle and the radial(More)
