A method of left main bronchus intubation was developed based on a wire guide-based microscopic endotrachael mouse intubation technique. The authors used a 22 G x 1 inch catheter elongated by a 38-mm silicone tube, and a wire guide with a tag to assign the length of the wire completely covered by the silicon tube. The isoflurane-anesthetized mouse was hung perpendicularly with its incisors on a thread and transorally intubated under strict vision with the wire guide tip advanced 3 mm out of the catheter. Then the catheter was advanced about 6 to 8 mm into the trachea...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine if the new Filta-Therm filter prevents contamination and allows the reuse of breathing circuit with considerable cost and environmental savings. DESIGN: Prospective study. PATIENTS: 52 ASA physical status I, II, III, and IV patients, aged 18 to 75 years. INTERVENTIONS: Each morning a new breathing circuit was assembled. The Filta-Therm filter (Intersurgical, Inc., Liverpool, NY) elbow, and mask, but not the circuit, were changed between patients...

It has previously been reported that continuous insufflation of either supracarinal or subcarinal oxygen in addition to intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV) in patients under general anesthesia, and in critically ill patients in the intensive care unit, causes increased proximal airway pressure, decreased systemic blood pressure, and decreased cardiac output. The investigators hypothesized that these deleterious hemodynamic effects were due to intrapulmonary air trapping, resulting in an increased distal intrapulmonary pressure and volume...

We measured the in vivo oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in the arterial blood of 34 sick newborn infants with a new, rapidly responding, continuously recording, catheter oximeter. The oxygen saturation, SaO2, was found to fluctuate between 85 and 95% in infants with pulmonary disease who are in a stable condition and breathing spontaneously. Severe disaturation occurred during apnea and after procedures such as chest percussion and suctioning of the endotrachael tube. The effects of changes in respiratory therapy were quickly manifested by changes in SaO2...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
