The accuracy of currently available devices using pulse contour analysis without external calibration for cardiac index (CI) estimation is negatively impacted by hyperdynamic states, low systemic vascular resistance (SVR), and abrupt changes in SVR. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of a new device, the Pulsioflex (Pulsion Medical System), in patients undergoing liver transplantation.

To evaluate physician assessment of cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance in patients with shock compared with an ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM). To explore potential changes in t...
The need to have consistent methods and consistent technique to optimize hemodialysis outcomes is behind the concept of the Optiflow™ device. This device was created to allow for consistency in size...
Vasoactive agents administered to counter maternal hypotension at cesarean delivery may theoretically intensify the hypoxemic fetoplacental vasoconstrictor response and, hence, negatively impact trans...
Multifocal vascular lesions are important to recognize and appropriately diagnose. Generally first noticed on the skin, multifocal vascular lesions may have systemic involvement. Distinguishing among ...
Ocular pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome may be associated with systemic vascular diseases, which might suggest a broader health significance of PEX, although previous reports are conflicting.
The purpose of this research study is to collect information on the amount of discomfort patients experience with one of two different vascular blood vessel closure devices, the MynxM5 Vas...
The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy of FRC and airway resistance calculate values of Spircare device as compared to the conventional body plethysmograph in healthy adults a...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a consequence of an increase in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), pulmonary blood flow, pulmonary venous pressure, or a combination of these elements. Pul...
The HDH device is intended for creating sutureless vascular anastomosis in various blood vessels. The HDH device consists of four parts: an elastic tube (graft), docking head (anastomotic ...
Clinical evidence reveals that some patients who undergo cardiac transplantation exhibit problems with pulmonary vascular resistance as well. In some studies, an increase in pulmonary vas...
The vascular resistance to the flow of BLOOD through the CAPILLARIES portions of the peripheral vascular bed.
The force that opposes the flow of BLOOD through a vascular bed. It is equal to the difference in BLOOD PRESSURE across the vascular bed divided by the CARDIAC OUTPUT.
A dihydropyridine calcium antagonist with positive inotropic effects. It lowers blood pressure by reducing peripheral vascular resistance through a highly selective action on smooth muscle in arteriolar resistance vessels.
Condition of low SYSTEMIC VASCULAR RESISTANCE that develops secondary to other conditions such as ANAPHYLAXIS; SEPSIS; SURGICAL SHOCK; and SEPTIC SHOCK. Vasoplegia that develops during or post surgery (e.g., CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS) is called postoperative vasoplegic syndrome or vasoplegic syndrome.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
