Use of the Draeger Apollo to Deliver Bilevel Positive Pressure Ventilation During Awake Frontal Craniotomy for a Patient with Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

We describe the intraoperative use of pressure support mode on the anesthesia machine to deliver noninvasive positive pressure ventilation through a standard anesthesia mask. Given its ease of access and effectiveness, it is our belief that intraoperative BiPAP may reduce hypoxemia and/or hypercarbia in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea undergoing moderate to deep sedation.

Authors: Sánchez-Villegas P, Cabrera-León A, Gil García E Abstract OBJECTIVE: To describe the association between the Neighborhood Walkability and mortality. METHOD: Ecological study of small areas. The standardized mortality ratios (SMR) and the Walk Score© were calculated in each census tract. These values were compared with parametric and nonparametric tests. RESULTS: For men, in the case of ischemic diseases, the means of the SMR for the categories with the highest walkability and the least were 1.03 and 0.85 (p

Authors: Hoffman H, Jalal MS, Chin LS Abstract Objective: We sought to identify risk factors for VTE following traumatic brain injury (TBI) and determine how venous thromboembolism (VTE) affects outcomes and costs using a national database. Methods: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) was used to identify patients with TBI between 2002 and 2014. VTE was identified as any occurrence of deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. We investigated putative risk factors for VTE and determined the effect of VTE on outcomes including mortality and disposition. Results: 424,929 patients met the inclusion criteria. Ther...

The C6 glioma cell line has been widely used for decades as experimental model system for the study of glioblastoma growth and invasion. Recently, aquaporin-1 (Aqp1) is reported to facilitate cell migration and potentially involved in tumor progression. Here we overexpressed Aqp1 in C6 cells to examine its potential role in glioblastoma. We found overexpression of Aqp1 in C6 cells significantly increased ce...
