OBJECTIVES Use of potent antiplatelet drugs requires evaluation of platelet function. While platelet function in elective cases is usually assessed in a central laboratory environment, there is also an urgent need for rapid perioperative point-of-care assessment. Recently, multiple electrode platelet aggregometry has been developed and assumed to measure(More)
BACKGROUND Pre-hospital hypotension in trauma patients is associated with high mortality. Especially for patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), arterial normotension or even hypertension (AHT) is considered an important mechanism for sustaining adequate cerebral perfusion pressure. The effect of pre-hospital arterial hypertension (pAHT) on(More)
BACKGROUND Dislocation of epidural catheters (EC) is associated with early termination of regional analgesia and rare complications like epidural bleeding. We tested the hypothesis that maximum effort in fixation by tunneling and suture decreases the incidence of catheter dislocation. METHODS Patients scheduled for major surgery (n = 121) were(More)

AIM OF THE STUDY While the 2005 cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines recommended to provide CPR for five cycles before the next cardiac rhythm check, the current 2010 guideline now recommend to provide CPR for 2 min. Our aim was to compare adherence to both targets in a simulator-based randomized trial. METHODS 119 teams, consisting of three to(More)
Neurofibromatosis type 1 is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by multiple dermatological disorders amongst others. Among the less frequent manifestations are vascular abnormalities. Here, we present a case of spontaneous massive hemothorax in a 39-year-old Caucasian woman with neurofibromatosis 1 and a thoracic meningocele with a lethal outcome(More)
Guidelines for the therapy of cardiogenic pulmonary edema or acute exacerbation of COPD imply the use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Clinical studies show a decrease in intubation frequency, mortality and length of stay with inhospital NIV. First prehospital reports show a safe and feasible use of NIV in this setting. We report the case of a 102-year old(More)
We report on a 27-year-old female patient who developed a progressive neurological disorder (anisocoria, dysarthria and facial nerve paresis) after participating in a marathon race. She was admitted to a maximum care level hospital after endotracheal intubation with a provisional diagnosis of intracranial bleeding. Imaging studies (computed tomography and(More)
Aktuelle kardiologische Leitlinien sind Grundlage für ein erweitertes Indikationsspektrum zur Implantation von Kardioverter-Defibrillatoren (automatische implantierbare Defibrillatoren, AICD) und führen zu einer steigenden Zahl operativ implantierter AICD. Hierzu trägt auch die Entwicklung von AICD mit biventrikulärer Schrittmacherfunktion bei, die bei(More)
