- Comparison between continuous non-invasive estimated cardiac output by pulse wave transit time and thermodilution method. Sinha, Ashish C.; Singh, Preet Mohinder; Grewal, Navneet; Aman, Mansoor; Dubowitz, Gerald // Annals of Cardiac Anaesthesia;Oct-Dec2014, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p273
Aims and Objectives: Cardiac output (CO) measurement is essential for many therapeutic decisions in anesthesia and critical care. Most available non-invasive CO measuring methods have an invasive component. We investigate "pulse wave transit time" (estimated continuous cardiac output [esCCO]) a...
- Ask the Experts. Removal of a Pulmonary Artery Catheter in the Presence of Implanted Leads. Epping, Kathleen; Hammer, Beth // Critical Care Nurse;Aug2012, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p69
The article provides an answer to the question of whether a time frame should preclude the removal of a pulmonary artery catheter by trained critical care nurses in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillator wires.
- Intravenous fluids: the tale goes on. Martin, Daniel // British Journal of Hospital Medicine (17508460);Jan2014, Vol. 75 Issue 1, p4
The author reflects on the benefits and detrimental effects of intravenous fluids. He offers an overview of the draft guidelines issued by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence entitled "Intravenous fluid therapy in adults in hospital." He highlights the complexity of the...
- Hemodynamic monitoring and management in patients undergoing high risk surgery: a survey among North American and European anesthesiologists. // Critical Care;2011, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p10364
The article presents a survey on the hemodynamic management practices in patients undergoing high-risk surgery in Europe and in the U.S. in early 21st century. It says that the survey, conducted with the American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) and the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA)...
- Comparison of positive end-expiratory pressure-induced increase in central venous pressure and passive leg raising to predict fluid responsiveness in patients with atrial fibrillation. Kim, N.; Shim, J.-K.; Choi, H. G.; Kim, M. K.; Kim, J. Y.; Kwak, Y.-L. // BJA: The British Journal of Anaesthesia;Mar2016, Vol. 116 Issue 3, p350
Background:Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)-induced increase in central venous pressure (CVP) has been suggested to be a robust indicator of fluid responsiveness, with heart rhythm having minimal influence. We compared the ability of PEEP-induced changes in CVP with passive...
- Pulmonary artery catheter--induced perforation treated with coil embolization. Kumar, Darpan S.; Trotter, Christopher; McDonald, Douglas; Mixon, Timothy A. // Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings;Jul2015, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p353
The past 40 years have taught us much about the use of pulmonary artery catheters and their complications. Pulmonary artery rupture carries high morbidity and mortality, and therefore a high index of suspicion and timely management are key to the survival of patients who suffer from this rare...
