Rapid administration of intravascular volume expanders is often necessary during anesthesia. Significant controversy still exists on the relative values of different volume expanders. Fifteen hypoxemic patients (Pao2 less than 70 torr on room air) were studied preoperatively. They were randomized into three groups. One group received 1.5 ml/kg of 25%(More)
Patients treated with bleomycin are at risk of developing the acute adult respiratory distress syndrome post-operatively. In a prospective study of 12 patients who had received bleomycin preoperatively and were undergoing removal of retroperitoneal lymph nodes or pulmonary metastases several preventive factors were established. These were the use of low(More)
In order to extend the characterization of muscarinic receptors at presynaptic sites their inhibitory effect on the stimulation-evoked release of [3H]noradrenaline and [3H]acetylcholine from different axon terminals was studied and the dissociation constants and potencies of different antagonists were estimated, in guinea-pig and rat. While oxotremorine(More)
Calcium chloride, 7 mg/kg, and calcium gluconate, 20 mg/kg, were administered to patients with low or low-normal levels of serum ionized calcium. Both patients had low blood pressure and cardiac index, and did not respond to digitalis, volume expansion, and beta-adrenergic stimulation with dopamine. Administration of calcium rapid increase of serum ionized(More)
This study was performed to clarify the location of a transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) transducer when obtaining the short-axis view of the left ventricle (S-LV). The depth of the probe tip from the incisors when obtaining a S-LV, the relationship to the diaphragm, and the location of the cardia of the stomach using a gastroscope attached to the TEE(More)
It is generally accepted that there is a functional antagonism between the sympathetic and parasympathetic (vagal) effects on the heart. In this study guinea-pig right atria loaded either with [3H]noradrenaline or [3H]choline were used and the release of [3H]noradrenaline or [3H]acetylcholine in response to field stimulation was measured under conditions(More)
A prospective randomized double-blind study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TNS) in relief of acute post-thoracotomy pain by comparing postoperative narcotic requirements in 22 patients having TNS and in 22 patients having sham electrical stimulation. All patients in both groups had intrathoracic malignancies.(More)
Patients with histories of bleeding disorders may still benefit from regional anesthetic techniques. The decision to perform the block should be individualized, based on coagulation tests. The authors describe a patient with von Willebrand's disease in whom pregnancy itself improved factor VIII activity, enabling performance of an epidural block for labor(More)
