Global coronary blood flow and metabolism were measured in seven patients on the first postoperative day following coronary revascularization to test the hypothesis that tracheal extubation produces adverse haemodynamic responses akin to those observed during tracheal intubation. Regional coronary flow and metabolic measurements were made in five of the(More)
The present clinical study was undertaken to assess the alterations in myocardial metabolism and coronary haemodynamics during weaning from mechanical ventilation in postoperative cardiac surgical patients. Global and regional myocardial blood flow and metabolism were assessed using a dual port coronary sinus-great cardiac vein thermodilution catheter in 17(More)
