Conclusion. The shear force component of an HVLA-SM's thrust vector is not transmitted to the underlying vertebra sufficient to activate muscle spindles of the attached muscles. Implications for clinical practice and clinical research are discussed. Level of Evidence: N/A

Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. To identify patient or procedure related predictors of postoperative blood transfusions in posterior lumbar fusion (PSF). Summary of Background Data. The rate of PSF surgery has increased significantly. It remains the most common surgical procedure used to stabilize the spine; however, the impact of blood loss requiring blood transfusions remains a significant concern. Methods. Analysis of data from the Canadian Spine Outcomes and Research Network. Patients who underwent PSF between 2008 and 2015 were identified. Multivariate analysis was used to identify pred...

Authors: Yao ZY, Jia Z, Xie YH, Zhang LL, Zhang HS, Wu WQ, Zhang CK, Gan LJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the analgesic effect of dezocine in different doses on elderly patients undergoing abdominal operation under general anesthesia and to investigate the influence of dezocine on stress response to postoperative tracheal extubation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 76 elderly patients undergoing abdominal operation under general anesthesia and postoperative analgesia in our hospital from January 2015 to January 2016 were selected, and patients treated with fentanyl were selected as the control group (fentanyl: ...

AbstractCardiac baroreflex (cBR) is activated by both arterial pressure (AP) increases and decreases. Sequence method, a widely utilized tool assessing cBR sensitivity (cBRS) from spontaneous heart period (HP) and systolic AP (SAP) variations, allows the separated computation of cBRS from positive and negative SAP variations. The recently proposed phase-rectified signal averaging (PRSA) method has the same feature but it has been applied so far solely to positive SAP variations. We adapted the PRSA method to compute cBRS over negative SAP variations and we compared the results with those derived from sequence method over t...

Publication date: 15 February 2018 Source:NeuroImage, Volume 167 Author(s): Michał Bola, Adam B. Barrett, Andrea Pigorini, Lino Nobili, Anil K. Seth, Artur Marchewka Loss of consciousness can result from a wide range of causes, including natural sleep and pharmacologically induced anesthesia. Important insights might thus come from identifying neuronal mechanisms of loss and re-emergence of consciousness independent of a specific manipulation. Therefore, to seek neuronal signatures of loss of consciousness common to sleep and anesthesia we analyzed spontaneous electrophysiological activity recorded in two experiments. Fi...

ConclusionsSurvival of patients with early post‐transplant sepsis was poor and the incidence of sepsis was associated with the pre‐transplant serum PCT level. Re‐evaluation of the general condition and rescheduling of LT are considered in a patient with pre‐transplant serum PCT>0.5 ng/ml.

German patient monitor developer Senzime said today it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its TetraGraph neuromuscular monitor. The newly cleared TetraGraph monitor is designed for use in the perioperative monitoring of physiologic data in surgical patients under general anesthesia and muscle relaxation using neuromuscular blocking drugs. The system is designed to stimulate a peripheral nerve to measure, analyze and display muscle function in surgical patients who’ve received NMBAs as part of their general anesthesia. “The CE mark is a major milestone for Senzime, we will immediately commence the ma...
