Perioperative fluid management is crucial for patients' outcome. Muller et al developed a "Mini-fluid challenge method " to predict fluid responsiveness and the efficacy. The investigators...
Administration of intravenous fluids is a key step in the management of the post-operative patient. Fluid management has been identified as one area that can affect rates of post-operative...
An effective fluid challenge should be able to increase the mean systemic filling pressure (Pmsf) by more that the least significant change. The objective of this study is to elucidate how...
Regional anesthesia, including epidural, spinal and combined epidural spinal anesthesia (CSEA), is a pivotal part in modern anesthesiology. Previously, the investigators found that epidura...
finding surrogate to co to trace the effect of preload challenge would make the test more applicable without the need of advanced hemodynamic monitors,suggested that co2 gap can be used to...
The prevalence of responsiveness to initial fluid challenge among hypotensive sepsis patients is unclear. To avoid fluid overload, and unnecessary treatment, it is important to differentiate these phe...
A structured definition of amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) based on 4 criteria was recently proposed for use in research by the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) and the Amniotic Fluid Embolism...
This review applied cardiovascular principles relevant to the physiology of venous return in interpreting studies on the utility of a passive leg-raising manoeuvre to identify patients who do (respond...
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
Fluid collected from nipple by gentle aspiration. The fluid contains cells and extracellular fluid from the breast ductal epithelium.
Inhalation anesthesia where the gases exhaled by the patient are rebreathed as some carbon dioxide is simultaneously removed and anesthetic gas and oxygen are added so that no anesthetic escapes into the room. Closed-circuit anesthesia is used especially with explosive anesthetics to prevent fires where electrical sparking from instruments is possible.
Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.
Patient care procedures performed during the operation that are ancillary to the actual surgery. It includes monitoring, fluid therapy, medication, transfusion, anesthesia, radiography, and laboratory tests.
