Since the introduction of transesophageal echocar-diography (TEE) to the operating room in the early 1980s, 1-4 its effectiveness as a clinical monitor to assist in the hemodynamic management of patients during general anesthesia and its reliability to make intraoperative diagnoses during cardiac operations has been well established. 5-26 In recognition of(More)
BACKGROUND Few data support an association between blood pressure variability and clinical outcomes during cardiac surgery. We tested the hypothesis that intraoperative systolic blood pressure variability outside a targeted blood pressure range predicts 30-day mortality in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS Electronically captured blood pressure(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we examined the association between American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA PS) designation and 48-h mortality for both elective and emergent procedures in a large contemporary dataset (patient encounters between 2009 and 2014) and compared this association with data from a landmark study published by Vacanti et(More)

Background. Postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with high mortality and substantial cost after aortocoronary bypass graft (CABG) surgery. We tested the hypothesis that intraoperative systolic blood pressure variation is associated with postoperative AKI. Methods. We gathered demographic, procedural, blood pressure, and renal outcome data(More)

The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), established in 1975, has long encouraged the assessment of quality in the practice of echocardiography. To that end it has published and continues to develop documents establishing guidelines for the practice of echocardiography. 1-8 In 1995, the ASE published a series of recommendations specifically for(More)
