Paradoxical bradycardia and hemorrhagic shock.

Paradoxical bradycardia and hemorrhagic shock. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2019 Apr;32(2):240-241 Authors: Bell K, Elmograbi A, Smith A, Kaur J Abstract Hypotension, poor peripheral perfusion, and tachycardia are the most common presenting signs of hemorrhagic shock. Many patients fail to show initial signs of tachycardia and paradoxically present with bradycardia. An 81-year-old man presenting with lower gastrointestinal bleed showed initial vital signs significant for tachycardia and normal blood pressure. After resuscitation with fluids and blood products, his heart rate stabilized to between 64 and 86 bpm. It later dropped to 30 bpm, which improved after administration of atropine. The patient soon experienced two episodes of hematochezia. The paradoxical bradycardia proved to be a false reassurance that the hemorrhage had resolved. Identification of paradoxical bradycardia is important in suspecting ongoing gastrointestinal hemorrhage. PMID: 31191139 [PubMed]

Authors: Tong Y, Zhang Q, Shi W, Wang J Abstract In the present study, a water insoluble drug named silybin was encapsulated into self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS) following the preparation of silybin-phospholipid complex (SB-PC), then several methods were carried out to characterize SB-PC-SNEDDS and elucidate its mechanisms to improve the oral absorption of SB. Using a dynamic in vitro digestion model, the lipolysis of SB-PC-SNEDDS was proved to be mainly related with the property of its lipid excipients. SB-PC-SNEDDS could significantly enhance the transport of SB across Caco-2 cells, which ...

In conclusion, this study demonstrates the concept of combining docetaxel with the biodegradable microparticles at the point of care is technically feasible for achieving an effective drug-device combination tissue scaffold. This approach could provide an effective new approach for delivering adjuvant chemotherapy following radical prostatectomy. PMID: 31735095 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Wu L, Zhao L, Su X, Zhang P, Ling G Abstract Repaglinide-loaded nanostructured lipid carriers (REP-NLCs) with different particle sizes were successfully designed and prepared to investigate the permeation and absorption ability by in situ single-pass intestinal perfusion (SPIP) study and pharmacokinetics. Both of the formulations prepared by solvent diffusion method exhibited a spherical shape under transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and similar zeta potential value of -11 mV. The particles size, encapsulation efficiency (EE), drug loading (DL) of REP-NLCs-Small and REP-NLCs-Large size preparati...

This study is a predefined post hoc analysis of the Dan-NICAD study (NCT02264717). Patients with suspected coronary artery disease by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) were randomized 1:1 to MPS or CMR and were referred to invasive coronary angiography with FFR and predefined QFR assessment. Paired data with FFR, QFR and MPS or CMR were available for 232 vessels with stenosis in 176 patients. Perfusion defects were detected in 57 vessel territories (25%). For QFR and FFR the diagnostic accuracy was 61% and 57% (p  = 0.18) and area under the receiver operating curve was 0.64 vs. 0.58 (p =&...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn this review, we aim to introduce the concept of machine perfusion of vascularized composite allografts (VCAs). We briefly discuss the basic elements of the circuit design, role of the temperature during the perfusion, types of perfusate, and future trends in this field.Recent FindingsSeveral large animal models have demonstrated the efficacy of machine perfusion over static cold storage. While the maximum allowable ischemia time in VCA is 4 –6 h with cold storage method, promising results have been achieved in extended preservation times up to 24 h in machine perfusion technique....
