PURPOSE Evaluation of the relationship between ethanol concentration in expired air and the amount of absorbed irrigation fluid in patients who undergo a transurethral resection of the prostate. METHODS 76 patients were evaluated in a prospective study. The irrigation fluid contained 1.92 w/w% of ethanol. The ethanol concentration in breath was measured at least every 10 minutes with a Alcotest 7410 (Dräger) or a Biomed 3010 (Biotest). Documented values: breath ethanol concentration, mean… CONTINUE READING
