To evaluate if there is a correlation between the abdominal leak pressure point (ALPP) of the urodynamic study and several tools to evaluate severity and quality of life associated to stress urine inc...
We compared the predictive value of the National Early Warning Score+Lactate (NEWS+L) score with those of other parameters such as the pre-endoscopic Rockall score (PERS), Glasgow-Blatchford score (GB...
The adoption of abdominal negative pressure therapy (NPT) during urgent laparotomy has shown to be helpful to control abdominal sepsis, improve morbidity and increase anastomosis rate. The aim of this...
OBJECTIVEThe purpose of this study was to describe the development of a novel prognostic score, the Subdural Hematoma in the Elderly (SHE) score. The SHE score is intended to predict 30-day mortality ...
Purpose To determine if abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) at CT predicts cardiovascular events independent of Framingham risk score (FRS). Materials and Methods For this retrospective study, electr...
To investigate the role of preoperative maximum urethral closure pressure and Valsalva leak point pressure in predicting outcome in patients who underwent trans-obturator tape for the trea...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the leak pressure of the recently introduced laryngeal mask airway, Ambu AuraGain performs superior to the established laryngeal mask LMA ...
The primary objective is to investigate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of 2 doses of alfuzosin (given as a solution or tablets depending on age) in children and adolescents 2 to 16 years of ag...
It is an observational study on ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and abdominal compartment syndrome. the aim of this study is to assess the qualities of a predictive score on the occure...
Patients undergoing thyroidectomy will be divided into three groups (30 cm H2O Group I, 40 cm H2O Group II, 50 cmH2O Group III). At the end of the operation patients will be applied peak a...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.
The pressure at any point in an atmosphere due solely to the weight of the atmospheric gases above the point concerned.
The tendency of a gas or solute to pass from a point of higher pressure or concentration to a point of lower pressure or concentration and to distribute itself throughout the available space. Diffusion, especially FACILITATED DIFFUSION, is a major mechanism of BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
