The objective of this prospective observational study was to determine the influence of femoral and central internal jugular venous catheters on the incidence of catheter-related bacteremia (CRB). We included patients admitted to a 12-bed polyvalent medico-surgical intensive care unit over 4 years who received one or more femoral or central internal jugular(More)
Although there are many studies on catheter-related infection, there are scarce data about the influence of tracheostomy in the incidence of central venous catheter-related bacteremia (CRB). In this cohort study, we found a higher incidence of CRB in patients with tracheostomy than without (11.25 vs. 1.43 per 1,000 catheter-days; odds ratio [OR] = 7.99; 95%(More)
Although there are many studies about central venous catheter-related infection, we have not found any analysis of the incidence of internal jugular venous catheter-related bacteremia associated with different accesses. The objective of this study was to test whether the position of the internal jugular venous catheter, central or posterior, influences the(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the efficacy of periodically changing ventilator circuits for decreasing the rate of ventilator-associated pneumonia when a heat and moisture exchanger (HME) is used for humidification. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended not changing the circuits periodically. DESIGN Randomized, controlled trial conducted(More)
Introduction: Here, we describe our Tissue Banking experiences of 4 years of activity in Mexico. Methods: Data of allografts provided by our Bank and bone retrievals performed by our teams between February of 2001 and August of 2004 were included. Results: There were 100 bone donors, a total of 1107 tissues were obtained with an average of 11 tissues by(More)
BACKGROUND It is still unknown whether a correlation exists between left ventricular Tei index obtained by tissue Doppler imaging and that determined by flow Doppler waveforms. This study was conducted to evaluate their relationship and to assess the positional effect on them. METHODS Twenty-six healthy subjects and 25 patients with essential hypertension(More)
