Maintaining satisfactory tissue perfusion is an essential of success during reconstructive free flap surgery following malign oral cavity tumours. Intra- and postoperative goal-directed fl...
The purpose of the study is to test whether colloid-based goal-directed intraoperative fluid management leads to less perioperative morbidity compared to crystalloid-based goal-directed in...
Although fluid therapy is of paramount value in anesthetic practice, there is no guideline available for perioperative fluid management in major abdominal surgery. So, there is a need to e...
There is no ideal "cookbook recipe" for fluid prescription that would fit every surgical patient. In this study, the investigators working hypothesis is that the adoption of an integrativ...
The purpose of the study is to compare non-obese patients (BMI≤ 30 kg/m2)versus obese patients (BMI> 30 kg/m2) in regard of their respective needs for intraoperative fluid therapy during...
Advances in noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring systems allow delivery of goal-directed fluid therapy and could therefore be used in less-invasive surgical procedures. In this randomized controlled tri...
The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of using a real time clinical decision-support system, "Assisted Fluid Management" (AFM), to guide goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) during major a...
Goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) has been associated with improved patient outcomes. However, implementation of GDFT protocols remains low despite growing published evidence and the recommendations ...
This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the effects of goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) versus conventional fluid therapy (CFT) in colorectal surgery on patients' postoperative outcome and to de...
Assessing the volemic status of patients undergoing surgery is part of the routine management for the anesthesiologist. This assessment is commonly performed by means of dynamic indexes based on the c...
Critical care treatment using intensive monitoring and aggressive management of perioperative hemodynamics in high risk patients,
A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.
An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
