- Modeling Cerebral Arteriovenous Lactate Kinetics After Intravenous Lactate Infusion in the Rat. Leegsma-Vogt, Gea; van der Werf, Siebren; Venema, Kor; Korf, Jakob // Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism;Oct2004, Vol. 24 Issue 10, p1071
SummaryVenous-arterial lactate differences across the brain during lactate infusion in rats were studied, and the fate of lactate was described with a mathematical model that includes both cerebral and extracerebral kinetics. Ultrafiltration was used to sample continuously and simultaneously...
- Failed epidural: causes and management. Hermanides, J.; Hollmann, M. W.; Stevens, M. F.; Lirk, P. // BJA: The British Journal of Anaesthesia;Aug2012, Vol. 109 Issue 2, p144
Failed epidural anaesthesia or analgesia is more frequent than generally recognized. We review the factors known to influence the success rate of epidural anaesthesia. Reasons for an inadequate epidural block include incorrect primary placement, secondary migration of a catheter after correct...
- Influence of infusion flow rates on central venous pressure measurements through multi-lumen central venous catheters in intensive care. Lakhal, Karim; Ferrandière, Martine; Lagarrigue, François; Mercier, Colette; Fusciardi, Jacques; Laffon, Marc // Intensive Care Medicine;Mar2006, Vol. 32 Issue 3, p460
Objective: To study the influence on central venous pressure (CVP), measured at the distal port, of crystalloid infusions administered through the proximal port(s) of a central venous multi-lumen catheter. Patients: Thirty-one intensive care patients. Interventions: CVP was measured at the...
- Tough time obtaining venous access in a child? // ED Nursing;Mar2011, Vol. 14 Issue 5, p55
The article focuses on the relevance of having an intraosseous (IO) drill when an attempt for a venous access in a child fails. Doernbecher Children's Hospital emergency department (ED) nurse manager Denise Langley claims that IO drill is effective and quicker to use compared to an intravenous...
