Introduction: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) induces an inflammatory response believed to contribute to postoperative morbidity. We hypothesized that the magnitude of the inflammatory response following CPB would be associated with adverse clinical outcomes.¶Methods: Twenty-nine patients had plasma TNF, IL-6, IL-8, elastase, histamine, complement C5a, and(More)
The perioperative management of the patient with an anterior mediastinal mass (AMM) is viewed as one of the more challenging anesthetic endeavors. Diligent preoperative planning is essential and often involves imaging studies using multiple modalities, pulmonary function assessment, and minimally invasive biopsy for tissue diagnosis prior to arriving in the(More)
A 24-year-old female with a history of ulcerative colitis underwent colectomy. The patient received an ineffective transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block with liposome bupivacaine (Exparel) intraoperatively and was started on a hydromorphone patient-controlled analgesia 5 hours after the TAP block, which did not relieve her pain. A continuous thoracic(More)
This paper examines the various different types of electronic voting systems, and distinguishes between electronic machine voting and electronic distance voting. The prospects of electronic voting systems are unclear; this paper observes some of the risks and the costs that are associated with electronic voting systems. This paper discusses security(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE Liposome bupivacaine, a prolonged-release bupivacaine formulation, recently became available at the Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD); before availability, postsurgical pain for large thoracic/abdominal procedures was primarily managed with opioids with/without continuous thoracic epidural (CTE) anesthesia. This retrospective chart(More)
Explicit construction of linear codes with best possible parameters is one of the major problems in coding theory. Among all alphabets of interest, the binary alphabet is the most important one. In this work we use a comprehensive search strategy to find new binary linear codes in the well-known and intensively studied class of quasi-cyclic (QC) codes. We(More)
