The plasma levels of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate are decreased in patients with chronic heart failure in proportion to the severity.
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) is the major secretory steroid of the human adrenal glands. The secretion of DHEAS decreases with aging. The incidence of heart failure also rises in theExpand

Effects of continuous positive-pressure ventilation on hepatic blood flow and intrahepatic oxygen delivery in dogs.
The effect of mechanical ventilation with PEEP of 0, 10, and 20 cm H2O (continuous positive-pressure ventilation [CPPV]) on hepatic blood flow (HBF) and intrahepatic oxygen delivery was studied in 26Expand
