INTRODUCTION: In this review, we compare the spectrum of currently available methods for quantifying pulmonary edema in patients. REVIEW: Imaging and indicator dilution techniques comprise the most common strategies for measuring lung water at the bedside. The most accurate (within 10% of the gravimetric gold standard) and most reproducible (< 5%(More)
Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) typically presents in the newborn period. A case series of five adults is presented, each heterozygous for a documented polyalanine expansion mutation in the PHOX2B gene and evidence of nocturnal alveolar hypoventilation. All cases had symptoms in childhood, but survived to adulthood without ventilatory(More)
UNLABELLED Redistribution of pulmonary blood flow (PBF) away from edematous regions of the lung is characteristic of experimental acute lung injury (ALI), helping to preserve ventilation-perfusion matching and gas exchange. The purpose of this study was to determine if such perfusion redistribution occurs in acute pulmonary edema in humans. METHODS We(More)
We evaluated the effects of partial liquid ventilation (PLV) with two different dosages of the perfluorocarbon LiquiVent (perflubron) on pulmonary vascular permeability and edema formation after oleic acid (OA)-induced acute lung injury in dogs. We used imaging with positron emission tomography to measure fractional pulmonary blood flow, lung water(More)
The complexity and heterogeneity of neuroimaging findings in individuals with autism spectrum disorder has suggested that many of the underlying alterations are subtle and involve many brain regions and networks. The ability to account for multivariate brain features and identify neuroimaging measures that can be used to characterize individual variation(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES More knowledge about the reasons for non-return of blood donors (BD) would enable blood donation services (BDS) to improve the efficacy of recruitment and retention programmes. We interviewed returning (RBD) and non-returning apheresis BDs (NRBD) of our university hospital-based BDS. MATERIALS AND METHODS A questionnaire was sent(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To evaluate the chest radiographic filling pattern associated with partial liquid ventilation (PLV) with the perfluorochemical perflubron (LiquiVent; Alliance Pharmaceutical Corp; San Diego CA) as a function of dose and timing. DESIGN Post hoc review of chest radiographs by three independent observers with correlation to clinical(More)
A retrospective study of non-invasive ductal carcinoma in situ in a series of women is presented. The epidemiology, clinical characteristics and results in 65 patients treated by mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery, with or without radiation therapy, are reported. The significant recurrence rate and high proportion of invasive cancers among patients(More)
