In an attempt to determine the value of replacing sweat losses with and electrolyte solution, 12 subjects (2 women and 10 men) were dehydrated (minus 3% body weight) on 5 successive days. During one 5-d sequence, the subjects replaced fluid losses with a glucose-electrolyte solution, while water was the only fluid ingested during a second 5-d series. With(More)
IMPORTANCE Exposure of young animals to commonly used anesthetics causes neurotoxicity including impaired neurocognitive function and abnormal behavior. The potential neurocognitive and behavioral effects of anesthesia exposure in young children are thus important to understand. OBJECTIVE To examine if a single anesthesia exposure in otherwise healthy(More)
BACKGROUND Animal studies have documented that exposure of the developing brain to commonly used anesthetic agents induces neurotoxicity and late abnormal neurobehavioral functions as adults. Results from clinical studies have all been analyzed using existing data sets, and these studies produced inconsistent results. To provide more definitive evidence to(More)
Prior reports suggest cerebral blood flow (CBF) responses to changing bypass (systemic) flow rates may differ between alpha-stat and pH-stat management. To compare the effect of blood gas management upon CBF responses to changing systemic flow and pressure, 15 New Zealand White rabbits, anesthetized with fentanyl and diazepam, underwent nonpulsatile(More)
On April 12, 2014, the Pediatric Anesthesia and NeuroDevelopment Assessment (PANDA) study team held its fourth biennial scientific symposium at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York (MS-CHONY). The symposium was organized by the PANDA study team and co-sponsored by the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian and the Department(More)
Rapid respiratory failure due to invasive mycosis of the airways is an uncommon presentation of Aspergillus infection, even in immunocompromised patients, and very few pediatric cases have been reported. Patients with Aspergillus tracheobronchitis present with nonspecific symptoms, and radiologic studies are often noninformative, leading to a delay in(More)
The Pediatric Anesthesia and NeuroDevelopment Assessment (PANDA) Project team organized its third biennial scientific symposium on "Anesthesia and Neurodevelopment in Children" at the Children's Hospital of New York on April 21, 2012. The event was co-sponsored by the New York-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital (MS-CHONY) and the Department of(More)
On April 16 and 17, 2016, the Pediatric Anesthesia and Neurodevelopment Assessment (PANDA) study held its fifth biennial symposium at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York. The PANDA symposium has served as a key forum for clinicians, researchers, and other major stakeholders to gather and review the current state of preclinical and clinical(More)
