This multi-centre prospective, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bovine intestinal alkaline phosphatase (bIAP) in reducing the pro-inflammatory post-surgical responses and thereby preserving organ functions in patients undergoing invasive cardiac surgery: combined aortic valve replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The aim of this randomized trial is to compare the efficacy of high dose tirofiban administered as either an intracoronary bolus alone or as an intravenous bolus followed by a maintenance ...
The study drug bIAP, or matching placebo, will be administered as a bolus of 1000 Units bIAP or matching placebo prior to anaesthesia (T = -15 minutes), directly followed by intravenous co...
The aim of this study is to investigate the analgesic effects of intraperitoneal lignocaine (IPL) compared with intravenous lignocaine (IVL) after laparoscopic colon resections. We plan to...
Patients undergoing an elective whipple procedure will be randomly assigned to receive either bolus infusion or continuous infusion of the cefazolin as the prophylactic antibiotic. The blo...
The aim of this prospective, randomized , blinded study is to compare two different infusion techniques (continous VS intermittent automatic bolus) to assess the effects of postopeartive a...
Febrile neutropenia may be a sign of severe infection, and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients with hematologic malignancies. Extended infusion of β-lactam an...
The acute and delayed effect of analgesic-range doses of ketamine on neurocognitive and behavioural outcomes is understudied. Using a non-controlled open-labelled design, three (1-h duration) increasi...
Loop diuretics remain a fundamental pharmacological therapy to remove excess fluid and improve symptom control in acute decompensated heart failure. Several recent randomised controlled trials have ex...
In clinical management of bleeds and surgical procedures in patients suffering from bleeding disorders either repetitive bolus injections (BI) or continuous infusion (CI) can be used for coagulation f...
In intensive care unit (ICU) patients, subcutaneous low-molecular weight heparin thromboprophylaxis results in lower plasma anti-factor Xa (anti-FXa) levels compared to general ward patients. The aim ...
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Use of any infusion therapy on an ambulatory, outpatient, or other non-institutionalized basis.
Fluid propulsion systems driven mechanically, electrically, or osmotically that are used to inject (or infuse) over time agents into a patient or experimental animal; used routinely in hospitals to maintain a patent intravenous line, to administer antineoplastic agents and other drugs in thromboembolism, heart disease, diabetes mellitus (INSULIN INFUSION SYSTEMS is also available), and other disorders.
Portable or implantable devices for infusion of insulin. Includes open-loop systems which may be patient-operated or controlled by a pre-set program and are designed for constant delivery of small quantities of insulin, increased during food ingestion, and closed-loop systems which deliver quantities of insulin automatically based on an electronic glucose sensor.
Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
