Recognizing Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia
CONCLUSIONS: Vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia is a serious complication of vaccination that is not feasible to anticipate or prevent. When the patient presents with sustained headache, neurologic symptoms/signs, abdominal pain, dyspnea, or limb pain/swelling beginning 5–30 days post vaccination, platelet count and d-dimer must be measured, and imaging for thrombosis performed. Confirmation of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia diagnosis should be ordered (platelet factor 4/polyanion enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; platelet factor 4–enhanced platelet activation testing) as treatm...

Molar Sodium Lactate Attenuates the Severity of Postcardiac Arrest Syndrome: A Preclinical Study
OBJECTIVES: To determine whether continuous IV infusion of molar sodium lactate would limit cardiac arrest–induced neurologic injury and cardiovascular failure. DESIGN: Randomized blinded study (animal model). SETTING: University animal research facility. SUBJECTS: Twenty-four adult male “New Zealand White” rabbits. INTERVENTIONS: Anesthetized rabbits underwent 12.5 minutes of asphyxial cardiac arrest and were randomized to receive either normal saline (control group, n = 12) or molar sodium lactate (molar sodium lactate group, n = 12) at a rate of 5 mL/kg/hr during the whole 120-min...

Noninvasive Tidal Volume Measurements, Using a Time-of-Flight Camera, Under High-Flow Nasal Cannula—A Physiological Evaluation, in Healthy Volunteers*
OBJECTIVES: The mechanisms of high-flow nasal cannula are still debated but may be mediated by the generation of low positive end-expiratory pressure and a washout of the airway dead space. The aims of this study were to assess the effects of high-flow nasal cannula on tidal volume using a noninvasive method using a time-of-flight camera, under various conditions. DESIGN: A physiologic evaluation in healthy volunteers. SETTING: An university hospital ICU. SUBJECTS: Ten healthy volunteers were included in a physiologic study (CamOpt study, ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT04096183). INTERVENTION...
