Correct assessment of a patient's volume status is the most important goal for an anesthetist. However, most of the variables used for fluid response evaluation are invasive and technicall...
The aim of the study is to evaluate whether changes in Perfusion Index (PI) and Pleth Variability Index (PVI) during passive leg raising test can predict fluid responsiveness in spontaneou...
Pleth Variability Index (PVI) seems to be an ideal parameter to guide fluid management: dynamic parameter and non-invasive. PVI could guide fluid management during surgery and optimization...
Spine fusion is an involved procedure during which patients are at risk for significant intra-operative blood loss.This study will compare 2 ways of determining fluid status and response t...
Less than half of the patients suffering from sudden cardiac arrest arrive at the hospital alive. Within these survivors less than half will be discharged alive from the hospital without b...
Heart rate variability and fetal heart rate decelerations are impacted by parasympathetic function and reflect acid-base status. Our team developed a new heart rate variability index, the Fetal Stress...
Cerebrospinal fluid is investigated in biomarker studies for various neurological disorders of the central nervous system due to its proximity to the brain. Currently, only a limited number of biomark...
Increased variability in spatiotemporal variables has been demonstrated in individuals after stroke. Gait Variability Index (GVI) has recently been proposed, potentially to be used as a standardized t...
A condition of abnormally high AMNIOTIC FLUID volume, such as greater than 2,000 ml in the LAST TRIMESTER and usually diagnosed by ultrasonographic criteria (AMNIOTIC FLUID INDEX). It is associated with maternal DIABETES MELLITUS; MULTIPLE PREGNANCY; CHROMOSOMAL DISORDERS; and congenital abnormalities.
Fluid collected from nipple by gentle aspiration. The fluid contains cells and extracellular fluid from the breast ductal epithelium.
Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through a hole through the skull bone most commonly draining from the nose (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID RHINORRHEA) or the ear (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA).
A combination of the debris index and the dental calculus index to determine the status of oral hygiene.
The fluid containing digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas in response to food in the duodenum.
