OBJECTIVE Central venous catheters (CVCs) are conduits for drug infusions. Dead volumes of different CVC lumens vary considerably. This study quantitatively evaluated drug delivery dynamics of CVCs in a laboratory model of continuous drug infusion. DESIGN CVCs studied included a triple-lumen catheter (16-gauge and 18-gauge lumens), the proximal infusion(More)
BACKGROUND Central venous catheters are used extensively in anesthesia and critical care. Multiport manifolds allow for simultaneous administration of multiple medication infusions into a common central venous catheter lumen. The structures of such manifolds vary considerably. In this study, we quantitatively compared, in a laboratory model of continuous(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine if variations in diet composition sufficient to alter circulating triiodothyronine (T3) concentration would influence hepatic mitochondrial metabolism. In experiment 1, mitochondrial respiration and the activity of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), cytochrome oxidase (CO) and alpha glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (m(More)
