The aim of this study was to identify risk factors associated with postoperative pulmonary complications. The influence of the anaesthetic technique was evaluated (i.e. general contra regional anaesthesia and long contra intermediately acting muscle relaxants (pancuronium and atracurium)) taking into account the patient's age, the presence or absence of(More)
In a screening study the strength of association between individual risk factors and post-operative outcome was examined using three-dimensional variate analyses. In a study of 1016 patients, the incidence of life-threatening complications during anaesthesia was low (0.2%), whereas minor complications were seen in about 6% of the patients. Opiate overdose(More)
The authors conducted a randomized controlled clinical trial to evaluate the usefulness of perioperative manual evaluation of the response to train-of-four (TOF) nerve stimulation. A total of 80 patients were divided into four groups of 20 each. For two groups (one given vecuronium and one pancuronium), the anesthetists assessed the degree of neuromuscular(More)
The aims of this study were to: 1) determine the incidences and causes of mortality associated with anaesthesia and surgery, 2) identify important factors associated with mortality in hospital, and 3) estimate the mortality risk associated with anaesthesia and surgery when a combination of risk factors are present. A total of 7306 anaesthetized patients(More)
The aims of this study were: 1) to describe the frequency and type of cardiopulmonary complications, 2) to identify factors significantly associated with cardiovascular and pulmonary complications associated with anaesthesia and surgery, and 3) to estimate the total risk of cardiopulmonary complications for an anaesthetic when a combination of risk factors(More)
The purpose of this review is to asses the current knowledge of mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS), with reference to the serious complications which may arise in connection with anaesthesia and operation. MPS consists of a heterogeneous group of hereditary diseases which are characterized by an abnormal accumulation of mucopolysaccharides, especially in(More)
PURPOSE A subgroup of individuals with anorexia nervosa (AN) displays social difficulties; however, it is not clear if individuals with comorbid autism spectrum disorders account for these difficulties. METHODS We compared social function using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule in 43 young females with first-episode AN who did not have comorbid(More)
The types and frequency of complications attributable solely to anaesthesia, and which caused serious morbidity and substantial negative outcome, were examined in a prospective study of 7306 anaesthetics. The analysis demonstrated that severe complications and mortality attributable to anaesthesia occurred in 0.59% (1:170) and 0.04% (1:2500) of patients(More)
IMPORTANCE Observational studies have suggested that increased dietary vitamin D intake during pregnancy may protect against wheezing in the offspring, but the preventive effect of vitamin D supplementation to pregnant women is unknown. OBJECTIVE To determine whether supplementation of vitamin D3 during the third trimester of pregnancy reduces the risk of(More)
