A high throughput and specific method using ultra performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was developed for the simultaneous determination of diltiazem and its two metabolite (N-desmethyldiltiazem and O-desacetyldiltiazem) in human plasma. A one-step liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) with methyl-t-butyl ether (MTBE) involved for(More)
The purpose of the present work is to mask the intensely bitter taste of Itopride HCl and to formulate an Oro dispersible tablet (ODT) of the taste-masked drug by incorporation of microspheres in the tablets for use in specific populations viz. pediatrics, geriatrics and patients experiencing difficulty in swallowing. With this objective in mind,(More)
Surgical shunts are the basic form of palliation for many types of congenital heart disease. The Glenn shunt (superior cavopulmonary connection) and central shunt (aortopulmonary connection) represent surgical interventions that could potentially be accomplished by transcatheter techniques. We sought to investigate the efficacy of using neodymium iron boron(More)
A rapid, specific and sensitive ultra-performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method was developed for the determination of fenofibric acid in human plasma. The method involves simple, one-step liquid-liquid extraction procedure coupled with an Acquity UPLC(TM) BEH C(18) column (50 x 2.1 mm, i.d., 1.7 microm) with isocratic elution at a(More)
A method based on ultra performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) in combination with solid-phase extraction for sample pretreatment has been developed for the simultaneous analysis of amitriptyline and its main metabolite in human plasma. The extraction of the analytes from plasma samples was carried out by means of a(More)
Herein, we describe a technique that facilitates percutaneous vascular access when the traditional method of achieving access is unsuccessful. For multiple reasons, gaining access to small vessels in pediatric patients is sometimes difficult. In instances of atrial, ventricular, or great arterial communications, a wire can be positioned from a vein or(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficiency of a stopcock system and a newly designed device to titrate low-flow infusions to critically ill infants. DESIGN In vitro study comparing fluid delivery through readily available and custom-built equipment. SETTING Engineering laboratory of a university-affiliated hospital. PATIENTS/SUBJECTS None. INTERVENTIONS(More)
A novel, specific and sensitive ultraperformance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method was developed for the simultaneous determination of quinapril and its active metabolite quinaprilat in human plasma. The method involves a simple, one-step extraction procedure coupled with an Acquity UPLC BEH C(18 )column (100 x 2.1 mm, i.d.,(More)
