Exposure to reprocessed single-use tracheal suction catheter and ventilator-associated pneumonia risk: A preliminary, single unit-based, matched case-control study.

The reuse of reprocessed single-use suction catheter for suctioning an amount of tracheal secretion among orally intubated, mechanically ventilated patients, who are at risk of acquiring ventilator-as...

Controlled Suction with venous catheter irrigation in neurosurgery - a cost effective technique.

Keeping the operating field clean and visible is an important technique in neurosurgery. Continuous irrigation-suction (IS) of the surgical field is currently often done using devices available that a...

Bronchoscopy assessment of acute respiratory failure in interstitial lung disease.

Acute respiratory failure (ARF) in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Recommended assessment for acute exacerbation (AE) of ILD inclu...

Diagnostic Yield of Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy Using a Curved-tip Catheter to Aid in the Diagnosis of Pulmonary Lesions.

The level of suction on post-operative chest tubes after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for lung cancer has previously shown to affect duration of drainage. These re...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The insertion of a catheter through the skin and body wall into the kidney pelvis, mainly to provide urine drainage where the ureter is not functional. It is used also to remove or dissolve renal calculi and to diagnose ureteral obstruction.

Employment or passage of a catheter into the URINARY BLADDER (urethral c.) or kidney (ureteral c.) for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.

A condition due to decreased dietary intake of potassium, as in starvation or failure to administer in intravenous solutions, or to gastrointestinal loss in diarrhea, chronic laxative abuse, vomiting, gastric suction, or bowel diversion. Severe potassium deficiency may produce muscular weakness and lead to paralysis and respiratory failure. Muscular malfunction may result in hypoventilation, paralytic ileus, hypotension, muscle twitches, tetany, and rhabomyolysis. Nephropathy from potassium deficit impairs the concentrating mechanism, producing polyuria and decreased maximal urinary concentrating ability with secondary polydipsia. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)

Failure of voluntary control of the anal sphincters, with involuntary passage of feces and flatus.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the bronchi.
