CONCLUSION When compared with ODM, PRAM has insufficient performance to track ΔCO induced by fluid challenge in ICU patients. Baseline bias is an independent predictor of trending bias. TRIAL REGISTRATION IRB 00010254-2016-033.

CONCLUSIONS: Use of clinical decision support in pediatric traumatic brain injury anesthesia care is feasible, reliable, and may have the potential to improve key performance indicator outcomes. This observational study suggests the possibility of clinical decision support as a strategy to reduce second insults and improve traumatic brain injury guideline adherence during pediatric anesthesia care.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and precision of non-invasive continuous blood pressure measurement by applanation tonometry (AT) in awake or anaesthetised cardiological intensive care patients. Patients suffering from highly impaired left ventricular function atrial fibrillation or severe aortic valve stenosis were included into the study. Arterial blood pressure was recorded by applanation tonometry (T-Line 400, Tensys Medical®, USA) and an arterial line in awake or anaesthetised patients. Discrepancies in mean (MAP), systolic (SAP), and diastolic (DAP) arterial pressure between the two met...

Measurement of invasive blood pressure as reflection of blood flow and tissue perfusion is often carried out in animals during general anesthesia. Intravascular cannulation offers the potential for gas to dire...

Accurate measurement of arterial blood pressure is an essential component of patient care management. Patients undergoing surgical and interventional procedures often require direct measurement of blood pressure via an arterial catheter. The indications and necessity for placement of an arterial line are based on the type of operation or interventional procedure, patient condition, comorbidities, anticipated treatment regimen, and/or frequency of blood draws. Placement of an arterial line can contribute to pain and discomfort during insertion.

AbstractInjection ports used to administer medications and draw blood samples have inherent dead-volume. This volume can potentially lead to inadvertent drug administration, contribute to erroneous laboratory values by dilution of blood samples, and increase the risk of vascular air embolism. We sought to characterize provider practice in management of intravenous (IV) and arterial lines and measure dead-volumes of various injection ports. A survey was circulated to anesthesiology physicians and nurses to determine practice habits when administering medications and drawing blood samples. Dead-volume of one and four-way inj...

This study assessed the efficacy of oral consumption of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and melatonin (ML) in reducing early reperfusion injury and acute oxidative stress in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with respect to the measurements of cardiac troponin I, lactate, malondealdehyde (MDA), and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) levels in the blood. Methods: This study was a randomized, open-label, placebo-controlled trial. Eighty eight patients, aged between 39 to 76 years and eligible for CABG, were recruited and randomly assigned into 3 intervention groups through a simple randomization ...

AbstractElectronic medical records now store a wealth of intraoperative hemodynamic data. However, analysis of such data is plagued by artifacts related to the monitoring environment. Here, we present an algorithm for automated identification of artifacts and replacement using interpolation of arterial line blood pressures. After IRB approval, minute-by-minute digital recordings of systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressures (MAP) obtained during anesthesia care were analyzed using predetermined metrics to identify values anomalous from adjacent neighbors. Anomalous data points were then replaced with linear interpola...
