UNLABELLED We performed this prospective randomized double-blinded study to assess the ability of almitrine to treat hypoxemia during one-lung ventilation (OLV). Twenty-eight patients were anesthetized with propofol, sufentanil, and atracurium; lung separation was achieved with a double-lumen tube. A transesophageal Doppler probe was inserted to evaluate cardiac index. If SpO(2) was equal to or decreased to <95% during OLV (inspired fraction of oxygen of 0.6), patients were included in the… CONTINUE READING
