    : Background Muscle relaxants facilitate tracheal intubation, but they are often not used for short peripheral surgical procedures. The consequences of this practice on the upper airway are still a matter of controversy. We therefore compared the incidence of post-intubation symptoms in a...

  • Stroke output variations calculated by esophageal Doppler is a reliable predictor of fluid response. Vallée, Fabrice; Fourcade, Olivier; De Soyres, Olivier; Angles, Olivier; Sanchez-Verlaan, Pascale; Pillard, Fabien; Smail, Nadia; Olivier, Michel; Genestal, Michèle; Samii, Kamran; Vallée, Fabrice; Genestal, Michèle // Intensive Care Medicine;Oct2005, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p1388 

    Objective: Esophageal Doppler allows continuous monitoring of stroke volume index (SVI) and corrected flow time (FTc). We hypothesized that variations in stroke output index SOI (SVI/FTc) during volume expansion can predict the hemodynamic response to subsequent fluid loading better...

    Hemodynamic monitoring was performed in 100 acutely ill patients admitted to a Coronary Care Unit, 72 of whom had sustained an acute myocardial infarction (AM1). In patients with AM!, the initial pulmonary capillary wedge (PCW) pressure was related to prognosis, with a mortality of 68% in those...
