ECMO improves survival following cardiogenic shock due to carbon monoxide poisoning - an experimental porcine model

Severe intoxication with carbon monoxide (CO) is extremely lethal and causes numerous deaths due to cardiac or respiratory failure. Conventional intensive treatment may not be sufficient. The aim of this study...

Purpose: The use of FDG PET has become more readily available over the past 15 years. It can be used to aid initial staging of testicular tumours and also assess the response to treatment in the metastatic setting, especially as residual masses are frequently seen after chemotherapy. There have been some recent concerns that FDG PET used to assess for residual disease may have a low positive predictive value [1]. A retrospective audit was carried out to look at the performance of FDG PET in seminoma patients treated at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre.

ConclusionIn this pilot trial, GSK2798745 was found to be safe and well ‐tolerated, with a trend toward improved gas transfer. Further investigation is warranted in larger studies to determine whether treatment with TRPV4 antagonists or alternative treatments targeting capillary permeability might be effective to improve lung congestion, pulmonary gas transfer and cli nical status in patients with acute or chronic HF.

AbstractObjectivesCentral or peripheral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (va ECMO) is widely used in postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCS). Available data suggest controversial results for both types. Our aim was to investigate PCS patients treated with either peripheral (pECMO) or central ECMO (cECMO) concerning their outcome.MethodsBetween April 2006 and October 2016, 156 consecutive patients with va ECMO therapy due to PCS were identified and included in this retrospective analysis. Patients were divided into cECMO and pECMO groups. Statistical analysis of risk factors concerning 30 ‐day mortality of ...

Analytical chemistry is amongst the fundamental subjects of chemistry that we’ve to teach our students. We will need to equip them together with the most basic ideas to help them learn and apply it correctly. But, the classroom can not teach us every little thing. So, how do we impart crucial fundamental ideas to our students? The first step is usually to bring up the students to recognize that a ph will be defined because the chemical entity getting a single or much more phenyl-sulfonyl (or P-S) groups. They ought to realize that a mixture of your unit components is known as a compound. Since, there are actually lot...

Carbon monoxide is known as a potent poisonous gas. The clinical features of CO poisoning are not specific.Cardiac disorders due to changes in cellular and subcellular levels, cardiomyopathy, angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, heart failure, pulmonary edema, cardiogenic shock and sudden death may occur.Myocardial damage has been determined as an indicator of increased mortality in patient with CO poisoning in the long-term.The ECG changes that may be detected in carbon monoxide intoxication are repolarization disorders, flattening and inversion of T-waves, ischemic changes, QT interval prolongation,...
