METHODS. Prospective physiological study. Ten patients who developed ARF (PaO2/FiO2 < 300 mmHg) after abdominal surgery and who have been treated with NIV were studied. NIV was performed in a supine position in the department of radiology. Data from computed tomography before and after 30-min of NIV were analyzed for volumetric quantification of lung aeration and collapse. Differently aerated lung regions were identified by their densities in Hounsfield Units (HU). Regions with thresholds… Expand

OPS Imaging of Human Microcirculation: A Short Technical Report
TLDR
A new approach based on orthogonal polarization spectral (OPS) imaging (Cytoscan™ microscope) allows noninvasive observation of human micro Circulation in all accessible tissue surfaces and may prove useful to investigate the microcirculation in the context of research, diagnosis and therapy control.

Efficacy of antiseptic-impregnated central venous catheters in preventing catheter-related bloodstream infection: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Central venous catheters impregnated with a combination of chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine appear to be effective in reducing the incidence of both catheter colonization and catheter-related bloodstream infection in patients at high risk for catheter -related infections. Expand
