A review was made of the records of 27 patients admitted to National Jewish Hospital who developed or experienced a reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis during pregnancy or the first 12 month post partum. Sixteen patients had drug-resistant disease, and 11 had drug-susceptible disease. The drug-resistant group had more extensive radiographic(More)
Fourteen episodes of reactivation of tuberculosis after corticosteroid administration are reported. In most a disease impairing the host defences was present and four were taking additional immunosuppressants. The most common presenting symptoms were productive cough and malaise. Bacteriological diagnosis required bronchoscopy in three cases. Response to(More)
Although recent epidemiologic studies have established that patients with chronic medical illness and depressed mood are more disabled than euthymic patients, detailed data on the benefits and risks of antidepressant treatment in medically high-risk patients have been slow to accumulate. The authors have examined multiple outcome indicators in patients with(More)
We investigated whether increases in lung water can occur due to lung inflation in zone I when alveolar vessels are collapsed. Static left lower lobe alveolar pressure, pulmonary arterial pressure, and pulmonary venous pressure were controlled in living, anesthetized, open-chested dogs. The lobe was inflated with 6% CO2 in air and suspended from a strain(More)
1. Hypoxic and hypercapnic ventilatory drives were measured in eight healthy male subjects before and after ingestion of ethanol, in a dose of 17 mmol/kg body weight. 2. A significant decrease in hypoxic ventilatory drive was observed at 20 min after ethanol (P less than 0.05). A significant depression in hypercapnic drive was observed at 70 min after(More)
Although serum amylase and lipase levels have been studied extensively in patients with renal disease, there are fewer data regarding trypsinogen levels in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) treated with different dialytic modalities. We therefore evaluated the blood concentrations of trypsinogen, amylase, and lipase in asymptomatic patients with(More)
