Perioperative Outcomes among Patients with the Modified Metabolic Syndrome Who Are Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery
TLDR
Patients with the modified metabolic syndrome undergoing noncardiac surgery are at substantially higher risk of complications compared with patients of normal weight. Expand
Density of Lumbar Cerebrospinal Fluid in Pregnant and Nonpregnant Humans
TLDR
Pregnancy and the immediate postpartum period are associated with the lowest CSF densities, and the cutoff values defining hypobaricity (mean CSF density minus three standard deviations) are greater than previously reported. Expand
Association between Intraoperative Blood Transfusion and Mortality and Morbidity in Patients Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery
TLDR
Intraoperative blood transfusions is associated with a higher risk of mortality and morbidity in surgical patients with severe anemia, and it is unknown whether this association is due to the adverse effects of blood transfusion or is, instead, the result of increased blood loss in the patients receiving blood. Expand
Densities of Dextrose-Free Intrathecal Local Anesthetics, Opioids, and Combinations Measured at 37 degrees C
TLDR
Dextrose-free anesthetic medications are commonly used to provide subarachnoid anesthesia and analgesia and attempts to attribute postural effects to the baricity of these drugs requires establishment of accurate density values, which may facilitate elucidation of the mechanisms underlying the behavior of dextrose-based anesthetics. Expand
High Spinal Anesthesia After Epidural Test Dose Administration in Five Obstetric Patients
TLDR
While this test dose appears to be a sensitive indicator of an unexpected subarachnoid catheter, the resulting excessive spinal blocks in these laboring patients raise the question of its safety. Expand
Preoperative Thrombocytopenia and Postoperative Outcomes after Noncardiac Surgery
TLDR
Platelet count abnormalities found in the course of routine preoperative screening are associated with a higher risk of blood transfusion and death. Expand
The Effective Concentration of Epsilon-Aminocaproic Acid for Inhibition of Fibrinolysis in Neonatal Plasma in Vitro
TLDR
An in vitro study using neonatal plasma derived from the placenta/cord units from 20 term, elective cesarean deliveries establishes the minimal effective concentration of EACA necessary to completely prevent fibrinolysis in neonatal blood in vitro. Expand
Density of Lumbar Cerebrospinal Fluid in Pregnant and Nonpregnant Humans
TLDR
Pregnancy and the immediate postpartum period are associated with the lowest CSF densities, and the cutoff values defining hypobaricity (mean CSF density minus three standard deviations) are greater than previously reported. Expand
