Intraoperative Optimisation of Tissue Oxygenation

2014-07-23 22:00:33 | BioPortfolio


Monitoring and optimizing tissue oxygenation (StO2) in high-risk surgery and/or high-risk surgical patients may decrease the risk of postoperative complications.

Tissue hypoxia occurs frequently during high-risk surgery in high-risk patients. The investigators want to see if an algorithm aimed at optimizing intraoperative tissue oxygenation reduces perioperative complications as well as length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU LOS), 28-day mortality, and the duration of mechanical ventilation in these patients.

Study Evaluating Whether the Bispectral Index Prevents Patients at Higher Risk From Being Awake During Surgery and Anesthesia

The overall purpose of this study is to see if a Bispectral Index (BIS) monitor, a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved brain monitoring device, will help to reduce the risk of pati...

Evaluation of Non-Invasive Respiratory Volume Monitor

This observational study investigates the validity and utility of a new, non-significant risk, FDA approved respiratory monitor, ExSpiron, in the perioperative course of patients undergoin...

Using Fitbit to Monitor Ambulation in Patients After Surgery.

This study will evaluate whether information on postoperative ambulation from Fitbits can improve surgeons' ability to monitor ambulation and identify patients at risk for prolonged length...

Diabetes Connected Health Study

Currently, diabetic patients who receive their care at the diabetes clinic self monitor their blood glucose using a portable glucometer, under the direction of care providers at the clinic...

Contribution of Connected Devices in the Follow-up of the Observance of a Prehabilitation Program

Poor physical performance and poor nutritional status increase the risk of complications after major surgery. Prehabilitation is the process of enhancing the functional capacity before sur...

Risk-adjusted monitoring of surgical performance.

We propose a nonparametric risk-adjusted cumulative sum chart to monitor surgical outcomes for patients with different risks of post-operative mortality due to risk factors that exist before the surge...

Perioperative cytokine profile during lung surgery predicts patients at risk for postoperative complications-A prospective, clinical study.

Postoperative complications after lung surgery are frequent, having a detrimental effect on patients' further course. Complications may lead to an increased length of hospital stay and cause additiona...

Risk of ischemic stroke after discharge from inpatient surgery: Does the type of surgery matter?

Stroke is a well-known and devastating complication during the perioperative period. However, detailed stroke risk profiles within 90 days in patients discharged without stroke after inpatient surgery...

Risk factors for postoperative severe morbidity after pheochromocytoma surgery: a single center retrospective analysis of 262 patients.

Surgical resection is the primary treatment strategy for pheochromocytoma; however, it carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality. The risk factors for severe morbidity remain unclear and require ...

Risk of Suicide and Self-harm Is Increased After Bariatric Surgery-a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Bariatric surgery is endorsed by multiple societies as the most effective treatment for obesity. Psychosocial functioning has also been noted to improve for most patients after bariatric surgery. Howe...

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.

Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.

An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).

Surgery for problems and injuries that are of relatively slight extent, and with a low risk for life threatening complications.
