Respiratory failure in the newborn. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Deficient oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD.
A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.
An infant during the first month after birth.
Mechanical or anoxic trauma incurred by the infant during labor or delivery.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
The flexible rope-like structure that connects a developing FETUS to the PLACENTA in mammals. The cord contains blood vessels which carry oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the fetus and waste products away from the fetus.
Postnatal deaths from BIRTH to 365 days after birth in a given population. Postneonatal mortality represents deaths between 28 days and 365 days after birth (as defined by National Center for Health Statistics). Neonatal mortality represents deaths from birth to 27 days after birth.
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION. In clinical obstetrics, the gestational age is often estimated as the time from the last day of the last MENSTRUATION which is about 2 weeks before OVULATION and fertilization.

Spike generation from dorsal roots and cutaneous afferents by hypoxia or hypercapnia in the rat in vivo. (1/274)

The present study aimed at investigating the responsiveness of different parts of the primary afferent neurones to a brief hypoxia, hypercapnia or ischaemia under in vivo conditions. Action potentials were recorded in separate groups of anaesthetized rats from (i) the peripheral end of the central stump of the cut L3, L4 or L5 dorsal root (dorsal root preparation); (ii) the central end of the peripheral stump of the cut saphenous nerve (saphenous-receptor preparation); (iii) the distal end of a segment of the saphenous nerve cut at both ends (axon preparation). In paralysed animals interruption of artificial ventilation for 20-60 s elicited or increased the frequency of action potentials in both the dorsal root and saphenous-receptor preparations. Activation of these preparations was also achieved by inspiration of gas mixtures containing 10-0% oxygen (mixed with nitrogen) or 20-50% carbon dioxide (mixed with oxygen) which elicited in the blood a decrease in PO2 or an increase in PCO2 with a fall in pH. Occlusion of the femoral artery for 3 min also caused spike generation in the saphenous-receptor preparations with little alteration in blood pressure. All these stimuli failed to evoke action potentials in the axon preparations. Systemic (300 mg kg-1 s.c.) or perineural (2%) capsaicin pretreatment failed to inhibit the effect of hypoxia, hypercapnia or ischaemia, indicating a significant contribution of capsaicin-insensitive neurones to the responses. It is concluded that central and peripheral terminals but not axons of primary afferent neurones are excited by a brief hypoxia or hypercapnia and the peripheral terminals by a short local ischaemia as well. Excitation of central terminals by hypoxia or hypercapnia revealed in this way an antidromic activation of dorsal roots in response to natural chemical stimuli.  (+info)

A resuscitated case from asphyxia by large bronchial cast. (2/274)

A 62-year-old woman with bronchiectasis suffered from asphyxia due to a large bronchial cast that obstructed the bronchial tree. Immediate bronchoscopic suction of a bronchial cast of 17 cm in length through the intubated tube relieved the patients without any complications. Large bronchial casts appear to be rare in this century but it should be considered in patients with acute exacerbation of excessive sputa not only in patients with asthma or allergy but also in patients with respiratory tract infection.  (+info)

Unnatural sudden infant death. (3/274)

AIM: To identify features to help paediatricians differentiate between natural and unnatural infant deaths. METHOD: Clinical features of 81 children judged by criminal and family courts to have been killed by their parents were studied. Health and social service records, court documents, and records from meetings with parents, relatives, and social workers were studied. RESULTS: Initially, 42 children had been certified as dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and 29 were given another cause of natural death. In 24 families, more than one child died; 58 died before the age of 6 months and most died in the afternoon or evening. Seventy per cent had experienced unexplained illnesses; over half were admitted to hospital within the previous month, and 15 had been discharged within 24 hours of death. The mother, father, or both were responsible for death in 43, five, and two families, respectively. Most homes were disadvantaged--no regular income, receiving income support--and mothers smoked. Half the perpetrators had a history of somatising or factitious disorder. Death was usually by smothering and 43% of children had bruises, petechiae, or blood on the face. CONCLUSIONS: Although certain features are indicative of unnatural infant death, some are also associated with SIDS. Despite the recent reduction in numbers of infants dying suddenly, inadequacies in the assessment of their deaths exist. Until a thorough postmortem examination is combined with evaluation of the history and circumstances of death by an experienced paediatrician, most cases of covert fatal abuse will go undetected. The term SIDS requires revision or abandonment.  (+info)

What is the leading cause of infant mortality? A note on the interpretation of official statistics. (4/274)

OBJECTIVES: According to vital statistics reports, congenital malformation is the leading cause of infant death in the United States and accounts for a much greater proportion of infant mortality than does premature birth. The purpose of this study was to examine the potential underestimation of prematurity-related mortality in current vital statistics reports. METHODS: National mortality data from 1985, 1991, and 1996 were analyzed. RESULTS: The official statistics significantly understate the role of prematurity-related mortality. An alternative etiology-based classification designates prematurity as the underlying cause in approximately one third of all infant deaths. CONCLUSIONS: Although no single scheme is suitable for every objective, analysts and policymakers should recognize the degree to which technical classification practices can influence the apparent importance of various causes of death.  (+info)

Intra-alveolar haemorrhage in sudden infant death syndrome: a cause for concern? (5/274)

BACKGROUND: The "Back to Sleep" campaign in 1991 resulted in a dramatic decrease in the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The proportion of presumed SIDS deaths being actually suspicious deaths from airway obstruction is likely to have become relatively greater. There is usually little pathological evidence to suggest smothering, but intra-alveolar haemorrhage appears to be more prominent in cases where interference with the airway is suspected. AIM: To attempt to quantify intra-alveolar haemorrhage to see whether it could be used as a marker to distinguish between smothering/overlaying and SIDS. METHODS: Intra-alveolar haemorrhage was quantified using digital image analysis on haematoxylin/eosin stained sections taken from the lungs of 62 consecutive infants who had died suddenly and unexpectedly. Cases were initially classified according to the original cause of death. After quantitation, the case histories were critically reviewed. Three pathologists independently made microscopic assessments of the degree of intra-alveolar haemorrhage in the first 24 cases to see whether these accurately reflected the quantitative results. RESULTS: 73% of those infants with a history suggesting possible involuntary overlaying and 45% of those with a history suspicious of smothering had significant intra-alveolar haemorrhage (> 5% of total lung surface area assessed). From the history, the cause of death in 11 cases initially classified as SIDS would better have been given as "Unascertained." Simple microscopic assessments underestimated the true extent of the haemorrhage in 33% (8/24). CONCLUSIONS: If a moderate degree (at least 5%) of pulmonary parenchymal haemorrhage is observed, this may be an indicator of airway obstruction for a significant period, either from overlaying or possibly smothering. The diagnosis of SIDS may be being used inappropriately in such cases.  (+info)

Hypothermia during reperfusion after asphyxial cardiac arrest improves functional recovery and selectively alters stress-induced protein expression. (6/274)

This study examined whether prolonged hypothermia induced 1 hour after resuscitation from asphyxial cardiac arrest would improve neurologic outcome and alter levels of stress-related proteins in rats. Rats were resuscitated from 8 minutes of asphyxia resulting in cardiac arrest. Brain temperature was regulated after resuscitation in three groups: normothermia (36.8 degrees C x 24 hours), immediate hypothermia (33 degrees C x 24 hours, beginning immediately after resuscitation), and delayed hypothermia (33 degrees C x 24 hours, beginning 60 minutes after resuscitation). Mortality and neurobehavioral deficits were improved in immediate and delayed hypothermia rats relative to normothermia rats. Furthermore, both immediate and delayed hypothermia improved neuronal survival in the CA1 region of the hippocampus assessed at 14 days. In normothermia rats, the 70-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp70) and 40-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp40) were increased within 12 hours after resuscitation in the hippocampus. Delayed hypothermia attenuated the increase in Hsp70 levels in the hippocampus but did not affect Hsp70 induction in the cerebellum. Hippocampal expression of Hsp40 was not affected by hypothermia. These data indicate that prolonged hypothermia during later reperfusion improves neurologic outcome after experimental global ischemia and is associated with selective changes in the pattern of stress-induced protein expression.  (+info)

Suffocated prone: the iatrogenic tragedy of SIDS. (7/274)

Epidemiologic research has shown that prone sleeping is a major risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). In a public health review from Sweden, we explored the historical background of the SIDS epidemic, starting with the view of the Catholic Church that sudden infant deaths were infanticides and ending with the slowly disseminated recommendation of a prone sleeping position during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. The story of the SIDS epidemic illustrates a pitfall of preventive medicine--the translation of health care routines for patients to general health advice that targets the whole population. False advice, as well as correct advice, may have a profound effect on public health because of the many individuals concerned. Preventive measures must be based on scientific evidence, and systematic supervision and evaluations are necessary to identify the benefits or the harm of the measures. The discovery of the link between prone sleeping and SIDS has been called a success story for epidemiology, but the slow acceptance of the causal relationship between prone sleeping and SIDS illustrates the weak position of epidemiology and public health within the health care system.  (+info)

"Bystander" chest compressions and assisted ventilation independently improve outcome from piglet asphyxial pulseless "cardiac arrest". (8/274)

BACKGROUND: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) without assisted ventilation may be as effective as CPR with assisted ventilation for ventricular fibrillatory cardiac arrests. However, chest compressions alone or ventilation alone is not effective for complete asphyxial cardiac arrests (loss of aortic pulsations). The objective of this investigation was to determine whether these techniques can independently improve outcome at an earlier stage of the asphyxial process. METHODS AND RESULTS: After induction of anesthesia, 40 piglets (11.5+/-0.3 kg) underwent endotracheal tube clamping (6.8+/-0.3 minutes) until simulated pulselessness, defined as aortic systolic pressure <50 mm Hg. For the 8-minute "bystander CPR" period, animals were randomly assigned to chest compressions and assisted ventilation (CC+V), chest compressions only (CC), assisted ventilation only (V), or no bystander CPR (control group). Return of spontaneous circulation occurred during the first 2 minutes of bystander CPR in 10 of 10 CC+V piglets, 6 of 10 V piglets, 4 of 10 CC piglets, and none of the controls (CC+V or V versus controls, P<0.01; CC+V versus CC and V combined, P=0.01). During the first minute of CPR, arterial and mixed venous blood gases were superior in the 3 experimental groups compared with the controls. Twenty-four-hour survival was similarly superior in the 3 experimental groups compared with the controls (8 of 10, 6 of 10, 5 of 10, and 0 of 10, P<0.05 each). CONCLUSIONS: Bystander CPR with CC+V improves outcome in the early stages of apparent pulseless asphyxial cardiac arrest. In addition, this study establishes that bystander CPR with CC or V can independently improve outcome.  (+info)

Compressive asphyxia (also called chest compression) is mechanically limiting expansion of the lungs by compressing the torso, hence interfering with breathing. Compressive asphyxia occurs when the chest or abdomen is compressed posteriorly.[7] Traumatic asphyxia or crush asphyxia usually refers to compressive asphyxia resulting from being crushed or pinned under a large weight or force. An example of traumatic asphyxia includes cases where an individual has been using a car-jack to repair a car from below, and is crushed under the weight of the vehicle.[5] Pythons, anacondas, and other constrictor snakes kill through compressive asphyxia. In cases of co-sleeping (overlay), the weight of an adult or large child may compress an infants chest, preventing proper expansion of the chest. Risk factors include large or obese adults, parental fatigue or impairment (sedation by drugs or alcohol) of the co-sleeping adult and a small shared sleeping space (for example, both adult and infant sharing ...
Erotic asphyxiation or breath control play is the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for the purposes of sexual arousal. This sexual practice is variously called asphyxiophilia, autoerotic asphyxia, hypoxyphilia. The term autoerotic asphyxiation is used when the act is done by a person to themselves. Colloquially, a person engaging in the activity is sometimes called a gasper. The erotic interest in asphyxiation is classified as a paraphilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. Author John Curra wrote, The carotid arteries (on either side of the neck) carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain. When these are compressed, as in strangulation or hanging, the sudden loss of oxygen to the brain and the accumulation of carbon dioxide can increase feelings of giddiness, lightheadedness, and pleasure, all of which will heighten masturbatory sensations. Author George Shuman describes the effect as such, When the brain is deprived of ...

Compressive asphyxia (also called chest compression) is the mechanical limitation of the expansion of the lungs by compressing the torso, hence interfering with breathing. Compressive asphyxia occurs when the chest or abdomen is compressed posteriorly.[4] In accidents, the term traumatic asphyxia or crush asphyxia is usually used to describe compressive asphyxia resulting from being crushed or pinned under a large weight or force. An example of traumatic asphyxia includes cases in which an individual has been using a car-jack to repair a car from below, only to be crushed under the weight of the vehicle.[3] Pythons, anacondas, and other constrictor snakes kill through compressive asphyxia.. In fatal crowd disasters, contrary to popular belief, it is not the blunt trauma from trampling that causes the large part of the deaths, but rather the compressive asphyxia from being crushed against the crowd. In confined spaces, people push and lean against each other; evidence from bent steel railings in ...
Medicine for asphyxiation - If someone ends up passing out from asphyxiation... How long does it take them to regain consciousness? That depends on. Cause of asphyxiation? - need more data.
The respiratory and circulatory systems of the body hold the most important processes that sustain life. Thats why these two should work hand in hand effectively. When a person suffers from a certain abnormality in his hearts functions, he would likely to experience difficulty in breathing. In the same way, the heart and other cardiovascular organs of the body would get affected once there is absence or lack of oxygen breathed inside the body.. The condition of extreme deficiency in the supply of oxygen due to abnormal breathing is called asphyxiation, or asphyxia for short. Suffocation and attacks of asthma are common cases of this medical condition. Both of these can bring a sufferer to a comatose state or much worse, to death. Asphyxiation could occur anywhere, especially when there is a low or no supply of oxygen such as underwater, a dusty or heavily polluted environment, an enclosed room, and a place exposed to toxic chemicals. A person who gets electric shocked in a severe level could ...
Introduction Asphyxia in modern English is another term for suffocation, the failure of respiratory gas exchange. In the fetus, this suffocation occurs because of a failure of gas exchange between the fetal blood in the placenta and the maternal uterine blood perfusing the placenta. The effect of asphyxia is a lowering of tissue oxygen…
According to the results of the autopsy performed on the body of George Floyd, the African American who died in Minneapolis after a policeman pressed his knee to the neck for nine minutes, there are no physical elements that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxiation or strangulation .. In particular, the report reads, the combined effects of being blocked by the police, his previous pathologies (coronary artery disease and hypertension, ed.) And some potential intoxicating substance in his body probably contributed to his death.. But the family does not believe in this outcome and now demands that an independent autopsy be conducted after that of the Heppepin County coroner. Basically, explained the Floyd attorney, they dont trust the Minneapolis authorities.. Meanwhile in these hours the protests for what happened are increasingly violent and also affect other cities, such as Atlanta, Georgia. During the night, some demonstrators attacked the CNN headquarters and threw various ...
The alternative explanation for the cardiovascular differences between immediate and delayed cord clamping at birth suggested in this commentary is not new and has been acknowledged for over 50 years. The basic premise is that asphyxia is the underlying cause of birth-related bradycardias and that avoiding asphyxia will avoid the bradycardia and associated cardiac instability. However, neonatologists have known for almost as long that lung aeration is the primary consideration when resuscitating bradycardic infants at birth. While it was thought that the beneficial effects are due to increased oxygenation, the Bhatt (1) study showed that increasing pulmonary blood flow and restoring venous return lost due to cord clamping, was also a major contributing factor. This is supported by studies in asphyxic, bradycardic lambs (2). Although the association between severe asphyxia and bradycardia is well- established, most birth related bradycardias are unlikely to be caused by asphyxia. Indeed, the ...

Summary A transient period of asphyxia in the newborn is an obligatory part of normal parturition. A more prolonged disturbance in cerebral blood supply is a major cause of neonatal seizures. Current therapies of birth asphyxia seizures are ineffective and the underlying mechanisms are unknown. Our recent landmark work on a rat model of birth asphyxia showed that asphyxia is followed by brain alkalosis, which triggers seizures. The brain-confined alkalosis is generated by activation of Na/H exchange in the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Both alkalosis and the consequent seizures can be suppressed by graded restoration of the high CO2 level after asphyxia and with blockers of Na/H exchange. Our pilot data indicate that arginine vasopressin (AVP) triggers the post-asphyxia seizures by activating the BBB-located luminal V1a receptor-coupled Na/H exchanger. Akin to human infants, a very high level of plasma copeptin (a part of pro-AVP) is seen following asphyxia but, notably, the copeptin levels remain ...
The onset of labour represents the starting point of a perilous challenge in life, as a new born must adapt to an unknown environment. During this adaptation there are several risks: hypoxia, asphyxia, trauma, intervention and, in worst case scenario, death. These risks can be reduced trough electronic fetal monitoring. During this delicate period the study and analysis of the variability in beat-to-beat intervals of fetal heart rate plays a fundamental role in the pursuit of fetal wellbeing, reduction of fetal morbidity and mortality. Given that the use of an animal model allows direct experimental manipulation of the subjects and their environment and considering the ethical issues and difficulties to acquire data related to asphyxia during labour and delivery, linear techniques (time domain and frequency domain) and non-linear techniques (detrended fluctuation analysis, complexity analysis and Poincarè indices and plots) have been initially implemented for the study of heart rate variability ...

The article will give a brief introduction to what we understand by the term Asphyxiation. The main focus will then turn to how Asphyxiation is used as a method of torture, (often euphemistically called a method of interrogation) with an overview of wet methods such as immersion in water or the pouring of water over the mouth and nose, and dry methods such as the use of bags/sacks/masks and how exacerbating factors such as the use of contaminants or irritants are used. The recently published International Forensic Expert Group Statement on Hooding will be introduced and the notion will be explored that during socalled enhanced interrogation asphyxiation or drowning can be simulated ...

Many gases that are more or less nontoxic can cause asphyxia by replacing oxygen from the breathing mixture. as a result, they are dangerous in enclosed areas, but not otherwise. People start showing signs of asphyxia when the concentration of these gases is around 30 percent; severe symptoms at around 50 percent; death at around 75 percent.. Argon, helium, and nitrogen - are your best bets in this category. They are all tasteless, odorless, nonirritating, and under these conditions, chemically and physiologically inert. In fact, nitrogen comprises about 78 percent of the air we breathe. Since these inert gases are not poisonous and your lungs have something to inhale, such asphyxia will be minimally traumatic. That is, they will not cause feelings of suffocation (which are due to carbon dioxide buildup, not the lack of oxygen) or haemorrhages (caused by high blood pressure from blocked jugular vein or struggling to breathe against a closed airway).. Most medical use of inert gases is for animal ...
If a child inhales a pen cap it might become lodged below the larynx and block the trachea. The risk of asphyxiation can be reduced if the pen cap is ventilated or too large to enter the airway. Children have to be actively discouraged from sucking, chewing, or putting pen caps in their mouths. A way of avoiding the risk of inhalation of caps of writing and marking instruments is to manufacture products without caps whenever possible. However, if caps are essential, the provisions of ISO 11540 minimize risk by specifying the design and performance of ventilated caps which reduce the likelihood of inhalation and delays asphyxiation pending medical intervention.. ...

Roger Stone has been indicted by a grand jury on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, who alleges that the longtime Donald Trump associate sought stolen emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trumps opponents at the direction of a senior Trump Campaign official.. The indictments wording does not say who on the campaign knew about Stones quest, but makes clear it was multiple people. This is the first time prosecutors have alleged they know of additional people close to the President who worked with Stone as he sought out WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.. After the July 22, 2016, release of stolen (Democratic National Committee) emails by Organization 1, a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign. STONE thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by Organization 1, prosecutors wrote.. Stone was ...

Severe asphyxia, irrespective of whether it is induced by occlusion of the internal iliac artery or umbilical cord in near-term lambs, results in widespread pathologies to the brain. These include cell death, white matter disruption, oxidative stress, intraparenchymal haemorrhage and inflammation, which is consistent to that observed in infants with Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy.29-31 The resultant injury also delays the lambs abilities to (1) use all four legs, (2) attain a standing position, (3) find the udder, and (4) successfully suckle-compared with control lambs.29 It is very interesting that despite a ,20 mm Hg difference in arterial pressure at 5 min following ventilation onset, CaBF was similar between groups. CaBF is controlled primarily at the level of the resistance vessels (arterioles), which also act in response to high blood pressures to limit flow into the brain and protect the more delicate downstream microvessels from high pressures and flows. However, this autoregulatory ...
This report describes a case of sudden collapse of a 20-hour-old newborn, while he was placed close to their mother according to skin-to-skin care, attributed to developmental alterations of brainstem nuclei involved in regulation of the vital functions. The infant, after a normal pregnancy, appeared well developed at birth, with no evidence of malformations or trauma, but showing severe asphyxia. The routine autopsy did not reveal a possible cause of death. Only the in-depth anatomopathological examination of the autonomic nervous system, according to the protocol developed by the Lino Rossi Research Center of Milan University, provided an explanation of the pathogenetic mechanism of this early death ...

The Friends of Hanging Rock have been rocking along for over thirty years.. In 1985 Nathan Alexander, then studying landscape architecture, completed a design and management plan for Hanging Rock: Spirit and Earth: Setting the scene for experiencing Hanging Rock (PDF 67MB).. Nathan had heard about the Friends of the Organ Pipes, and thought a similar group would be useful at Hanging Rock. In 1986 Guido Bigolin, the ranger then and now, introduced Nathan to a few other frequent visitors who cared for the place, and the Friends of Hanging Rock were launched in April 1987.. Their first public activity was a botanical walk around the rock in September 1986. Since then the Friends have held at least one activity most months. Typically each year we count koalas, plant trees, view the wildlife and native plants, and visit a public place that shares some similarities with the Rock.. From the earliest days the group has advocated preservation of the Rocks unique character, restoration of the remnant ...

Symptoms of embolus include:. Difficulty breathing (asphyxia) or chest pain (pulmonary edema). Chest pain may occur even when there is no signs of respiratory distress.. There may be a feeling of choking. Breathing becomes difficult, shallow, and irregular. You feel like you cannot take any deep breaths at all. You have difficulty swallowing, which results in drooling and vomiting. You vomit blood from your mouth and nose. Your skin feels hot to the touch.. The most common symptom is difficulty breathing (asphyxia), but other symptoms such as chest pain, nausea, vomiting blood, sweating, dizziness and confusion may occur. Other possible symptoms include shortness of breath (dyspnea) or fainting (syncope).. If you experience these symptoms immediately after having a heart attack or stroke then it means that you had an embolus event.. ...

The algorithm that identified intentional self-harm hospitalizations with high sensitivity and specificity was a diagnosis of poisoning, toxic effects, open wound to elbow, wrist, or forearm, or asphyxiation; plus a diagnosis of depression, mania, personality disorder, psychotic disorder, or adjustment reaction. This had a sensitivity of 63%, specificity of 99% and positive predictive value (PPV) of 86% in the Canadian database. Values in the US data were 74, 98, and 73%. PPV was highest (80%) in patients under 25 and lowest those over 65 (44%). ...
Bruce Chatwin considered movement the indispensable feature of the human species. Sedentary natures killed through asphyxiation; a refusal to move suggested an acceptance of death. Walking he considered a virtue; tourism the ultimate sin. For the late Anthony Bourdain, a chef turned walker and explorer, no dish was odd enough or peculiar to be avoided or exiled by palate.. Bourdain was certainly of similar inclination to Chatwin - in some respects. If Im an advocate of anything, its to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone elses shoes or at least eat their food. Its a plus for everybody.. Foods and rites may well be seen as communal acts for the new to be initiated into. But a modern world obsessed with nutritional counters, diet and concerns makes adventurism, quite literally in some cases, hard to stomach. But the wiry Bourdain seemed to have a cast iron stomach, a body impregnable to that various kitchens he sampled. ...

Takker - The ingeniously simple wall hanging kit.. Following a successful appearance on the Irish Dragons Den Takker is now launching in the UK. Diyfixit was invited to take a look at the new device for hanging pictures called the Takker. We tried it out and were pretty impressed.. The device itself looks a bit like a staple gun and came with a selection of special hooks The smaller ones were simple map pin like affairs called - appropriately enough - Takks. These are suitable for hanging pictures directly onto. The others were more substantial hooks which come in small and medium sizes and simply clip onto the Takks providing a more substantial support.. Our Takker came preloaded with Takks but loading new ones was a simple enough job. Releasing the retaining spring allows you to drop more Takks in. Replacing the retainer can be a little fiddly to make sure the spring feeds smoothly back in. But really no big deal.. We marked the position for the hook in the usual way by holding the picture ...

Perinatal asphyxia remains a principal cause of infant mortality and long-term neurological morbidity, particularly in low-resource countries. No neuroprotective interventions are currently available. Melatonin (MLT), a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic agent, offers promise as an intravenous (IV) or transdermal therapy to protect the brain. We aimed to determine the effect of melatonin (IV or transdermal patch) on neuropathology in a lamb model of perinatal asphyxia. Asphyxia was induced in newborn lambs via umbilical cord occlusion at birth. Animals were randomly allocated to melatonin commencing 30 minutes after birth (60 mg in 24 hours; IV or transdermal patch). Brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) was undertaken at 12 and 72 hours. Animals (control n = 9; control+MLT n = 6; asphyxia n = 16; asphyxia+MLT [IV n = 14; patch n = 4]) were euthanised at 72 hours, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brains were collected for analysis. Asphyxia resulted in severe acidosis ...

BACKGROUND:. Perinatal asphyxia is an important cause of mortality and permanent neurological and developmental deficit. Early and accurate diagnosis would help to establish the likely prognosis and may also help in determining the most appropriate treatment. Studies in experimental animal models suggest that a protein called Hsp70 may be a good and potentially useful marker of cellular stress that may be clinically useful in determining the presence of neonatal asphyxia.. OBJECTIVES:. Regarding the importance of early and accurate diagnosis of asphyxia, we conducted this study, which is the first investigation of the comparison of the serum Hsp70 antigen level between asphyxiated and healthy infants.. PATIENTS AND METHODS:. In this observational study, the serum concentrations of Hsp70 antigen were compared between neonates suffering from perinatal asphyxia (n = 50) and normal neonates (n = 51). The inclusion criteria for the cases were neonates who had reached term and had at least two ...

This is a multicentre prospective randomised controlled trial to determine whether a reduction of body temperature by 3-4°C following perinatal asphyxia improves survival without neurodevelopmental disability.. Full term infants will be randomised within 6 hours of birth to either a control group with the rectal temperature kept at 37 ± 0.2°C or to whole body cooling with the rectal temperature kept at 33.5 ± 0.5°C for 72 hours followed by slow rewarming.. The outcome will be assessed at 18 months of age by survival and neurological and neurodevelopmental testing.. Eligibility criteria:. Term infants less than 6 hours after birth with moderate or severe perinatal asphyxia (a combination of clinical and EEG criteria).. Exclusion criteria:. Infants expected to be 6 hours of age at the time of randomisation or infants with major congenital abnormalities.. Intervention:. Intensive care with whole body cooling versus intensive care without whole body cooling (babies are cooled to 33.5°C for 72 ...

In dogs caused experimental strangulation obstruction by ligation of the upper small intestine together with the mesentery measuring 80 cm in length, adrenal venous blood was observed for the secretion rate of adrenaline and noradrenaline by the fluorimetric method. Increase of adrenal medullary secretion was not induced by the continued strangulation alone. However, when the strangulation was released three hours after the onset, the secretion rate of adrenaline and noradrenaline increased rapidly. When 250 mg of kanamycin was injected into the strangulated intestinal loop and the obstruction was released three hours later, the increase of adrenal medullary secretion was slight. When the strangulated intestinal loop was resected and anastomosed three hours after the onset of obstruction, the adrenal medullary secretion showed no increase. When strangulation was released after resection of the greater and lesser splanchnic nerves on the side wherefrom the adrenal venous blood was drawn, any ...
Our finding that birth asphyxia was the leading cause of death is consistent with a previous study from a university and tertiary care hospital in Tanzania [10]. In contrast, the global pattern and studies from university and tertiary care hospitals find prematurity to be the leading cause of death [5, 22-24]. One explanation of the high number of deaths due to asphyxia in our data may be the definition criteria for asphyxia that we used, which included some of the preterm babies. In some studies [21, 24], all preterm babies who die are classified with prematurity as cause of death. Of particular interest is the high number of deaths attributable to asphyxia in normal birth weight infants in our study (one third of all deaths) because they may represent a potential for prevention. Basic training on newborn resuscitation skills and proper newborn resuscitation immediate after birth has proved to reduce mortality among babies born with birth asphyxia up to 40% [25-27]. A recent study in six ...

The world of BDSM is a diverse one. One area of it is known as breath-play.. Breath-play involves the restriction of oxygen to increase erotic play or to intensify an orgasm or sexual experience.. This can either be achieved through solo-play (autoerotic asphyxiation) or through partner play, in which the submissive is the one whos airflow is restricted.. This is undoubtedly one of the more controversial areas of BDSM edge-play as this is literally a game of placing your life in your partners hands.. There are a variety of ways in which people accomplish this: breath-holding, nose-pinching, Kinging or Queening (smothering the face of a partner with the genitals of the other), gas-masks or hoods (usually latex gimp or slave hoods), bags or plastic wrap, re-breather bladders, choking or hanging, compression on chest (corseting), pressure on the trachea or around the neck or pressure on the carotid artery.. Self-induced autoerotic asphyxiation can be accomplished in many of the same ways with ...

if you think about it, labour is a very risky phase in pregnancy.It can be tragic. some children grow well in utero with no complication at all, ready to get out of the womb. but, because of complications such as prolonged 2nd phase due to various reasons, commonly poor maternal effort in pushing, or cord prolapse, or sudden placental abruption, they end up with severe asphyxia , with sequalae or even death. the same goes to those baby who passed meconium ( poo) in utero (which happened alot) . at the very moment they are about to come out, a few number of them swallowed and aspirated the meconium into their lungs, causing blockage in gas exchange therefore compromised breathing ...
Try saying asphyxiation five times fast. You will know what it means from experience. But if you survive, read on…. You probably know the term refers to choking to death and that it is the fancy pants medical name for strangulation. But did you know the term derives from the Greek, meaning a- (without) + sphyxis (a heartbeat)?. If you thought it had something to do with the Egyptian term sphinx (which I think means without + a nose), then you were wrong. (To asphynxiate actually means to turn into a giant cat with wings and tell riddles till your enormous human face erodes away.). There are many circumstances that can induce asphyxia, all of which are characterized by the inability to acquire sufficient oxygen through breathing for a long, long - gasp! - LONG period of time. These circumstances can include but are not limited to: the constriction or obstruction of airways, such as from asthma, laryngospasm, or eating an excessive amount of cotton candy; from being in environments ...
Perinatal asphyxia resulting in hypoxia-ischemia (HI)-related brain injury leads to severe, life-long morbidities in thousands of neonates and children born in the U.S. each year (Ferriero, 2004; Nelson and Lynch, 2004; Drobyshevsky et al., 2007; Hill and Fitch, 2012). The physical, emotional, and economic toll taken by these adverse early childhood events is incalculable. Interestingly, clinical studies indicate that male neonate brains are more susceptible to the effects of perinatal asphyxia (Vannucci and Hurn, 2009; Hill and Fitch, 2012) resulting in greater long-term cognitive deficits compared with females with comparable brain injury (Marlow et al., 2005; Tioseco et al., 2006; Hill and Fitch, 2012). In addition, males show increased risk for brain-based developmental disorders including learning disabilities and cerebral palsy compared with females (Donders and Hoffman, 2002; Rutter et al., 2003). The relative resistance of female neonatal brain to adverse consequences of HI suggests that ...

My daughter Avery would have turned eight this past July. Shed be nine weeks into life as a third grader. I would no doubt be frantically running around, completely occupied with ballet lessons and shopping for frilly dresses and packing Queen Elsa lunchboxes and making pretty pink bows to clip in her long brown hair.. But Avery was stillborn three weeks before her due date. My daughters ashes sit in an urn in my bedroom, a little silver container from Hobby Lobby that gets a kiss every morning and every night. The pathologists report labeled the cause of death asphyxia due to a tight nuchal cord, which, to put it bluntly, means my daughter was strangled by her own umbilical cord.. Losing Avery was devastating. I had a healthy, active pregnancy. Everything was perfect. I couldnt understand how my body had failed me - how my body had failed Avery.

Ideally, three to five mice of each genotype, including the same number of age- and sex-matched controls should be submitted for evaluation. Controls should be littermates exposed to the same environment and experimental conditions, and NOT mice of the same background strain purchased from a commercial vendor. After a brief ante mortem period of observation, the mice are euthanized by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, weighed and blood collected by percutaneous cardiac puncture for subsequent hematology (complete blood count including erythrocyte, leukocyte and platelet parameters with white blood cell differential) and clinical chemistry (29 routine serum assays evaluating liver and kidney function, electrolytes and protein levels). We have a network of reference laboratories available to provide additional tests that are not performed in-house. Urine and other fluids can also be analyzed; however, due to the small volumes typically obtained from mice, pooling of samples from mice of the same ...

However, the adults can cohabit quietly with the eggs already hatched and the C. punctatums newborns can cohabit under high concentration of individuals also in reduced rooms, although this condition it is not valid anymore when also just an egg is inserted in the tank. Because egg protective colloidal filaments are a big dangerous factor for newborns that can entangle themselves dying cause asphyxiation. Instead, the eggs accurately cleaned from colloidal filaments can growth reaching the ...
