The purpose of this study is to understand the patient experience with an adverse event after surgery. An adverse event is an undesirable experience or complication associated with your su...
Recent guidelines of the ACC/AHA suggest that elective non-cardiac surgery (NCS) should optimally be delayed one year after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent...
The purpose of the research is to identify the frequency and severity of adverse events related to atrial fibrillation that occur after discharge from hospital where the patient underwent ...
Non-cardiac surgery is associated with significant cardiac morbidity and mortality. Volatile anesthetics have a cardioprotective effects which results in preservation of left ventricular f...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) affects approximately 20% of hospitalized patients and up to 67% of those admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), making it among the most common organ dysfunct...
Chest physiotherapy (CPT) is implemented before and after congenital heart disease (CHD) surgery in paediatrics to prevent and treat postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC). Currently, there are n...
Patients at high risk for developing post-procedural complications may receive iodixanol, an iso-osmolar contrast, during coronary angiography to minimize the risk of renal toxicity. For those who add...
Novel cardiac biomarkers including sST2, Galectin-3 and NT-proBNP may be associated with long-term adverse outcomes following cardiac surgery. We sought to measure the association between cardiac biom...
While reoperative cardiac surgery has become safer in recent years, it is still more difficult and dangerous than a primary operation. In a recent review of the Cleveland Clinic's experience, 7% of th...
Prior work identified a direct relationship between frailty and adverse outcomes in cardiac surgery, but assessment of the effect across patient subgroups has largely been ignored. We identified wheth...
Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.
A late-appearing component of the event-related potential. P300 stands for a positive deflection in the event-related voltage potential at 300 millisecond poststimulus. Its amplitude increases with unpredictable, unlikely, or highly significant stimuli and thereby constitutes an index of mental activity. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 6th ed)
A schistosomicide possibly useful against other parasites. It has irritant emetic properties and may cause lethal cardiac toxicity among other adverse effects.
A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.
Surgery performed on the heart.
