This study was undertaken to characterize blood gas, pH, and lactate changes during and after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in arterial and venous samples. Blood samples were withdrawn from the brachial artery, aortic arch, pulmonary artery, coronary sinus, and either the right or left cardiac ventricle of 24 anesthetized dogs. Ventricular(More)
The influence of fluid loading during CPR on oxygen uptake and blood flow was investigated in 18 dogs (12-26 kg). Blood flows were measured with radioactive microspheres at 5 (control CPR), 13 and 20 min after the initiation of ventricular fibrillation and CPR. After 10 min, 9 dogs received a rapid infusion of whole blood (11 ml/kg, i.v.) and 9 dogs(More)

In our hypothesis, the newly developed program SPM (surgical procedure manager) will ensure successful standardization and efficiency of the FESS (functional endoscopic sinus surgery) and therefore make a decisive contribution in terms of economization and improvement of intraoperative quality. Between 27th March 2015 and 8th October 2015, data from 259(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical motivation for the current study was that various instrument tables are located far away from the patient's head, and the only way for the surgeon to access an instrument is via a scrub nurse. Thus, the idea for this study was the development and evaluation of an improved and conveniently positioned instrument table. MATERIAL AND(More)
