OBJECTIVE Progress in resuscitation medicine allows an increasing proportion of patients to survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. However, little is known about long-term adaptation to the vital breakdown. The present study assessed the long-term prevalence and severity of emotional disability of cardiac arrest survivors and ascertained whether(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluates the feasibility of implementing early defibrillation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients for basic life-support providers (EMT-D) in a two-tier emergency system in the city of Munich, Germany. DESIGN Retrospective consecutive analysis of all EMT-D attempts during a 5-year initiation phase (1990 to 1994) and(More)
Plasma-high-density-lipoprotein (H.D.L.) cholesterol concentrations are lower in patients with coronary-artery disease than in control subjects. In an investigation of the relationship of H.D.L. cholesterol to other lipid and lipoprotein parameters in normal and hyperlipoproteinaemic subjects inverse correlations were found between H.D.L. cholesterol and(More)
Twenty-five epileptic outpatients were studied to assess possible effects of the first 6 months of treatment with carbamazepine or oxcarbazepine using serial peripheral nerve conduction measurements. Carbamazepine caused a small slowing effect on the motor conduction of the median nerve after 4 weeks of treatment, and the effect was correlated with the(More)
Tachyarrhytmias often occur during increased emotional arousal or mental excitation. The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) allows the exact documentation of arrhythmic episodes and their time of onset. Therefore, the type of arrhythmia can be differentiated as well as the circumstances surrounding the event. These features allow the assessment of(More)
Clinical and electrographic seizures were recorded in an infant with atelencephaly. Because the infant had no cerebral hemispheres, the ictal discharges were presumed to arise from the disorganized diencephalic derivatives that occupied the entire supratentorial space. The case provided strong support for the concept that, unlike epileptic seizures in older(More)
We studied 23 epileptic outpatients to assess carbamazepine and phenytoin therapy effects on the peripheral nerve conduction velocity, the electromyogram, and the EEG background activity. Immediately before and 3, 5, 11, 22 months after beginning treatment with 300-800 mg carbamazepine or 200-400 mg phenytoin, the patients were examined with(More)
