Oro/nasopharyngeal suction is a method used to clear secretions from the oropharynx and nasopharynx through the application of negative pressure via a suction catheter or bulb syringe. Traditionally, ...
This prospective observational study was designed to clarify the rate of peripheral intravenous catheter, especially short peripheral catheter, failures among adult patients in medical and surgical wa...
We have recently developed a flexible catheter electrode used for bronchoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Two patients with nonsurgical stage IA peripheral lung cancer and 1 with lung metastasis ...
As of now, only a few studies have focused on the failure of tunneled cuffed venous catheter (tCVC) and mortality of hemodialysis (HD) patients using tCVC as long-term vascular access, whose vascular ...
Intestinal failure is a chronic condition related to loss of bowel length and/or function, resulting in dependence on central venous catheters for fluids and nutrition. Catheter use can be associated ...
The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia between two groups of patients randomised to have closed system suction catheter changes every 24 ...
The aim of this study is to develop a safe and effective technique to take sample for lower respiratory tract cultures easy to perform in conditions of acute respiratory failure and sponta...
The study was designed to investigate efficacy of suction drains in arthroscopic knee surgery, rather than anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. two groups were randomised, and ...
This is an observational study evaluating a catheter salvage strategy in relation to catheter-related bloodstream infections in patients with chronic intestinal failure dependent on home p...
The purpose of this study is to compare the diagnosis accuracy of modified wet suction technique and 5ml dry suction technique on solid occupying lesions.
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
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.
Failure of voluntary control of the anal sphincters, with involuntary passage of feces and flatus.
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)
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
