Differential regulation of IGF-I, its receptor and GH receptor mRNAs in the right ventricle and caval vein in volume-loaded genetically hypertensive and normotensive rats. (1/288)

It has been suggested, mainly by in vitro findings, that cardiovascular tissue in the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) should be more prone to proliferate/hypertrophy than that of the Wistar-Kyoto rat (WKY). The present study tests the hypothesis that the tissue of the low-pressure compartment in SHR, being structurally similar to that of the WKY, shows an increased growth response due to activation of the GH-IGF-I system. An aortocaval fistula (ACF) was induced in 64 SHR and WKY male rats and 44 rats served as controls. They were all followed for 1, 2, 4 and 7 days after surgery. In separate groups of SHR (n=4) and WKY (n=3), central venous pressure was measured by telemetry recordings prior to opening of the fistula and for up to 16 h post-surgery. Systolic blood pressure was measured during the week post-surgery. The right ventricular (RV) and the caval vein IGF-I mRNA and RV IGF-I receptor and GH receptor mRNAs were quantitated by means of solution hybridisation assay. In rats with ACF the systolic blood pressure decreased, approximately 29% in SHR and 16% in WKY between 1 and 7 days post-surgery (P<0.05, n=5-6 in each group). SHR with ACF showed a transient elevation in central venous pressure vs WKY. Within the week following fistula induction both strains showed a similar, pronounced increase in RV hypertrophy. SHR with ACF showed a smaller, or even blunted, overall response with respect to activation of the GH-IGF-I system compared with WKY, the latter showing clear-cut elevation of gene expressions. Two days after shunt opening in SHR, RV and caval vein IGF-I mRNA increased by 57% and 108% (P<0.05 for both, n=5-6 in each group) respectively, and these expressions were then turned off, whereas RV GH receptor and IGF-I receptor mRNA expression remained unaffected compared with WKY rats. WKY rats showed on average a later and a greater response of GH-IGF-I system mRNA expression vs SHR. The present in vivo study suggests that the SHR requires less activation of the GH-IGF-I system for creating a given adaptive structural growth response.  (+info)

Baroreflex gain predicts blood pressure recovery during simulated ventricular tachycardia in humans. (2/288)

BACKGROUND: Despite similar degrees of left ventricular dysfunction and similar tachycardia or pacing rate, blood pressure (BP) response and symptoms vary greatly among patients. Sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) increases during sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT), and the magnitude of this sympathoexcitatory response appears to contribute to the net hemodynamic outcome. We hypothesize that the magnitude of sympathoexcitation and thus arterial baroreflex gain is an important determinant of the hemodynamic outcome of VT. METHODS AND RESULTS: We evaluated the relation between arterial baroreflex sympathetic gain and BP recovery during rapid ventricular pacing (VP) in patients referred for electrophysiological study. Efferent postganglionic muscle SNA, BP, and central venous pressure (CVP) were measured in 14 patients during nitroprusside infusion and during VP at 150 (n=12) or 120 (n=2) bpm. Arterial baroreflex gain was defined as the slope of the relationship of change in SNA to change in diastolic BP during nitroprusside infusion. Recovery of mean arterial pressure (MAP) during VP was measured as the increase in MAP from the nadir at the onset of pacing to the steady-state value during sustained VP. Arterial baroreflex gain correlated positively with recovery of MAP (r=0.57, P=0.034). No significant correlation between ejection fraction and baroreflex gain (r=0.48, P=0.08) or BP recovery (r=0.41, P=0.15) was found. When patients were separated into high versus low baroreflex gain, the recovery of MAP during simulated VT was significantly greater in patients with high gain. CONCLUSIONS: These data strongly suggest that arterial baroreflex gain contributes significantly to hemodynamic stability during simulated VT. Knowledge of baroreflex gain in individual patients may help the clinician tailor therapy directed toward sustained VT.  (+info)

Venous hydrostatic indifference point as a marker of postnatal adaptation to orthostasis in swine. (3/288)

The postulate that venous adaptation assists postural baroreflex regulation by shifting the hydrostatic indifference point (HIP) toward the heart was investigated in eight midazolam-sedated newborn piglets. Whole body head-up (+15, +30, and +45 degrees ) and head-down (-15 and -30 degrees ) tilt provided a physiological range of orthostatic strain. HIP for all positive tilts shifted toward the heart (P < 0.05), +45 degrees HIP shifted most [6.7 +/- 0.3, 5.9 +/- 0.5, and 3.6 +/- 0.3 (SE) cm caudal to right atrium on days 1, 3, and 6, respectively]. HIP for negative tilts (3.0 +/- 0.2 cm caudal to right atrium) did not shift with postnatal age. Euthanasia on day 6 caused 2.1 +/- 0.3-cm caudal displacement of HIP for positive and negative tilts (P < 0.05). HIP proximity to right atrium was not altered by alpha-, beta-adrenoceptor and cholinoceptor blockade on day 5. It is concluded that early HIP migration reflects enhancement of venous pressure control to head-up orthostatic strain. The effect is independent of baroreflex-mediated adrenoceptor and cholinoceptor mechanisms.  (+info)

Arterial pressure in humans during weightlessness induced by parabolic flights. (4/288)

Results from our laboratory have indicated that, compared with those of the 1-G supine (Sup) position, left atrial diameter (LAD) and transmural central venous pressure increase in humans during weightlessness (0 G) induced by parabolic flights (R. Videbaek and P. Norsk. J. Appl. Physiol. 83: 1862-1866, 1997). Therefore, because cardiopulmonary low-pressure receptors are stimulated during 0 G, the hypothesis was tested that mean arterial pressure (MAP) in humans decreases during 0 G to values below those of the 1-G Sup condition. When the subjects were Sup, 0 G induced a decrease in MAP from 93 +/- 4 to 88 +/- 4 mmHg (P < 0.001), and LAD increased from 30 +/- 1 to 33 +/- 1 mm (P < 0.001). In the seated position, MAP also decreased from 93 +/- 6 to 87 +/- 5 mmHg (P < 0.01) and LAD increased from 28 +/- 1 to 32 +/- 1 mm (P < 0.001). During 1-G conditions with subjects in the horizontal left lateral position, LAD increased compared with that of Sup (P < 0.001) with no further effects of 0 G. In conclusion, MAP decreases during short-term weightlessness to below that of 1-G Sup simultaneously with an increase in LAD. Therefore, distension of the heart and associated central vessels during 0 G might induce the hypotensive effects through peripheral vasodilatation. Furthermore, the left lateral position in humans could constitute a simulation model of weightlessness.  (+info)

Cardiac evaluation in hypotension-prone and hypotension-resistant hemodialysis patients. (5/288)

BACKGROUND: Hypotension during hemodialysis occurs frequently, but the precise mechanism remains unclear. In this study, the presence of myocardial ischemia and myocardial contractile reserve during infusions of the beta-adrenergic receptor agonist dobutamine was assessed by means of dobutamine-atropine stress echocardiography (DSE) in hypotension-prone (HP) and hypotension-resistant (HR) hemodialysis patients. METHODS: Eighteen HP patients (age 53 +/- 6 years) were compared with 18 HR patients (age 53 +/- 3 years), matched with respect to the duration of hemodialysis and cardiovascular history. New wall abnormalities during dobutamine stress reflect the presence of myocardial ischemia, whereas the increase in stroke index and cardiac index reflects myocardial contractile reserve. RESULTS: Wall motion score at rest (1.42 +/- 0.53 vs. 1.44 +/- 0.57) and dobutamine-induced new wall motion abnormalities (4 vs. 3 patients) between HP and HR patients were similar, but responses of cardiac index, stroke index, and systolic blood pressure to do butamine between the two groups were different. Not withstanding a similar cardiac index at rest (2.4 +/- 1.1 liter/min/m2 in HP and 2.8 +/- 1.2 liter/min/m2 in HR patients), dobutamine-induced increments in the cardiac index were considerably smaller in the former (0.8 +/- 1.3 liter/min/m2) than in the latter patients (2.3 +/- 1.6 liter/min/m2, P = 0.002), predominantly because of a progressive decrease in the stroke index in the HP patients. CONCLUSION: Impaired myocardial contractile reserve rather than ischemia is predominant in HP patients. This impaired myocardial contractile reserve may play a role in the development of hemodialysis-induced hypotension.  (+info)

A prolonged spinal cord ischaemia model in pigs. Passive shunting offers stable central haemodynamics during aortic occlusion. (6/288)

OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the effect of a modified aortic shunt on central haemodynamic variables during experimental thoracic aortic occlusion in a prolonged spinal cord ischaemia model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: central haemodynamic variables were evaluated during aortic cross-clamping. In the shunt group (n=11), after the placement of proximal and distal aortic clamps, distal aortic perfusion was restored through an aortoiliac shunt via the left subclavian artery. In the no-shunt group (n=11), spinal cord ischaemia was achieved with only proximal aortic cross-clamping. The clamping time was 60 minutes in the shunt group and 30 minutes in the no-shunt group. RESULTS: in the no-shunt group, all animals needed inotropic support, vasodilators and buffers during the experiment. None of these drugs were needed in the shunt group. In the no-shunt group, cross-clamping caused a significant increase in mean arterial pressure and heart rate compared to baseline values. These variables were stable in the shunt group during aortic occlusion. In the reperfusion period cardiac output, heart rate and arterial pCO(2)were significantly higher in the no-shunt than in the shunt group. CONCLUSION: the present experimental spinal cord ischaemia model, using double aortic cross-clamping with shunt, offers improved central haemodynamics. This enables the study of prolonged selective spinal cord ischaemia without interaction from vasoactive drugs or systemic reperfusion.  (+info)

Differential regulation of cardiac ANP and BNP mRNA in different stages of experimental heart failure. (7/288)

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) are cardiac hormones that are involved in water and electrolyte homeostasis in heart failure. Although both hormones exert almost identical biological actions, the differential regulation of cardiac ANP and BNP mRNA in compensated and overt heart failure is not known. To study the hypothesis that cardiac BNP is more specifically induced in overt heart failure, a large aortocaval shunt of 30 days duration was produced in rats and compared with compensated heart failure. Compensated heart failure was induced either by a small shunt of 30 days duration or by a large shunt of 3 days duration. Both heart failure models were characterized by increased cardiac weight, which was significantly higher in the large-shunt model, and central venous pressure. Left ventricular end-diastolic pressure was elevated only in the overt heart failure group (control: 5.7 +/- 0. 7; small shunt: 8.6 +/- 0.9; large shunt 3 days: 8.5 +/- 1.7; large shunt 30 days: 15.9 +/- 2.6 mmHg; P < 0.01). ANP and BNP plasma concentrations were elevated in both heart failure models. In compensated heart failure, ANP mRNA expression was induced in both ventricles. In contrast, ventricular BNP mRNA expression was not upregulated in any of the compensated heart failure models, whereas it increased in overt heart failure (left ventricle: 359 +/- 104% of control, P < 0.001; right ventricle: 237 +/- 33%, P < 0.01). A similar pattern of mRNA regulation was observed in the atria. These data indicate that, in contrast to ANP, cardiac BNP mRNA expression might be induced specifically in overt heart failure, pointing toward the possible role of BNP as a marker of the transition from compensated to overt heart failure.  (+info)

Middle cerebral artery blood velocity during a valsalva maneuver in the standing position. (8/288)

Occasionally, lifting of a heavy weight leads to dizziness and even to fainting, suggesting that, especially in the standing position, expiratory straining compromises cerebral perfusion. In 10 subjects, the middle cerebral artery mean blood velocity (V(mean)) was evaluated during a Valsalva maneuver (mouth pressure 40 mmHg for 15 s) both in the supine and in the standing position. During standing, cardiac output decreased by 16 +/- 4 (SE) % (P < 0.05), and at the level of the brain mean arterial pressure (MAP) decreased from 89 +/- 2 to 78 +/- 3 mmHg (P < 0.05), as did V(mean) from 73 +/- 4 to 62 +/- 5 cm/s (P < 0.05). In both postures, the Valsalva maneuver increased central venous pressure by approximately 40 mmHg with a nadir in MAP and cardiac output that was most pronounced during standing (MAP: 65 +/- 6 vs. 87 +/- 3 mmHg; cardiac output: 37 +/- 3 vs. 57 +/- 4% of the resting value; P < 0.05). Also, V(mean) was lowest during the standing Valsalva maneuver (39 +/- 5 vs. 47 +/- 4 cm/s; P < 0.05). In healthy individuals, orthostasis induces an approximately 15% reduction in middle cerebral artery V(mean) that is exaggerated by a Valsalva maneuver performed with 40-mmHg mouth pressure to approximately 50% of supine rest.  (+info)

In Defense of the Central Venous Pressure. Jon-Emile S. Kenny M.D.. In the waning days of my fellowship I received a hemoptysis consult in the cardiac care unit. Sifting through CT scans, I overheard two house-officers giving sign-out for the evening. When reviewing the clinical data, one of the residents referred to the central venous pressure [CVP] as a random number generator. I spied them, gave a stern look and recalled being on morning rounds as a sleep-deprived intern; I was mercilessly grilled on the nuances of the central venous pressure and its measurement. I paused and thought: is this what were teaching housestaff? That this measurement is random?. The Venetian Marionette. Years ago, while strolling the promenade along Venice Beach, I saw a young street performer.

Central venous pressure (CVP) is the blood pressure in the venae cavae, near the right atrium of the heart. CVP reflects the amount of blood returning to the heart and the ability of the heart to pump the blood back into the arterial system. CVP is often a good approximation of right atrial pressure (RAP),[1] although the two terms are not identical, as a pressure differential can sometimes exist between the venae cavae and the right atrium. CVP and RAP can differ when arterial tone is altered. This can be graphically depicted as changes in the slope of the venous return plotted against right atrial pressure (where central venous pressure increases, but right atrial pressure stays the same; VR = CVP − RAP).. CVP has been, and often still is, used as a surrogate for preload, and changes in CVP in response to infusions of intravenous fluid have been used to predict volume-responsiveness (i.e. whether more fluid will improve cardiac output). However, there is increasing evidence that CVP, whether ...
Central venous pressure (CVP) is at the crucial intersection of the force returning blood to the heart and the force produced by cardiac function, which drives the blood back to the systemic circulation. The normal range of CVP is small so that before using it one must ensure proper measurement, specifically the reference level. A useful approach to hypotension is to first determine if arterial pressure is low because of a decrease in vascular resistance or a decrease in cardiac output. This is done by either measuring cardiac output or making a clinical assessment blood flow. If the cardiac output is decreased, next determine whether this is because of a cardiac pump problem or a return problem. It is at this stage that the CVP is most helpful for these options can be separated by considering the actual CVP or even better, how it changed with the change in cardiac output. A high CVP is indicative of a primary pump problem, and a low CVP and return problem. Understanding the factors that determine CVP
Central catheters are common in acute and critical care areas. Because of the complexity of the care for these patients, many central catheters have multiple lumens. Typically, the distal lumen opens at the tip of the catheter, while the other lumen(s) open slightly proximal to this on the sides of the catheter. Is a central venous pressure (CVP) measurement obtained from any one of the 2, 3, or 4 lumens of these catheters different from the measurement obtained from any of the other lumens? Very little direct evidence is available to guide us on this question. What little we know comes from studies on different types of catheter placement. Only 1 study specifically addressed the influence of port site.... ...

Figure 2. If the patient had been in the natural squatting position for this delivery, the child, instead of being placed at the level of the placenta, would have been delivered downwards and would have been immediately subjected to a placental transfusion pressure 30+ cms. of water at birth due to gravity. Crying, (due to cold and liver pain) placental transfusion and cord closure would probably all have been completed within a minute or two.. The physiological mechanism that produces the step pattern is a sphincter-like closure of the umbilical vein that is reflexively controlled to work as a pressure valve. The right atrium has pressor receptors that are triggered by low central venous pressure; they control the release of anti-diuretic hormone. A pressor receptor in the left atrium that is triggered by adequate pressure to close the foramen ovale would be the ideal receptor to effect closure of the umbilical vessels. Some cord pulsation was recorded at this time, but blood flow in the ...
As a group of clinicians, it could be argued that we anaesthetists have a penchant for number generating machines that dont really add much to patient care. Central venous pressure, cardiac output monitoring (controversial), and Bispectral Index (BIS) readily spring to mind as the most popular Random number generators we encounter. Now this is a bit of an extreme perspective, and I do personally feel that there can only really be a benefit to having extra information at hand - its just the interpretation of it all where caution is required. The literature is full of nuanced ways we can optimise patient outcomes through manipulating the stroke volume/stroke volume variation/central venous pressure etc. each with varying amounts and quality of supporting evidence. It therefore comes as quite a shock when you stumble across a paper that has the potential to be an immediate gamechanger, as is the case here. The paper is entitled Response of bispectral index to neuromuscular blockade in awake ...

In days gone by, people relied on the CVP as a simple means of predicting fluid responsiveness. But it turns out the CVP is really bad at predicting the patients responsiveness to fluid challenges. There are too many variables governing central venous pressure. This has become evident from some high-quality evidence, and it has been known for some time. Indeed, so obvious the uselessness of CVP in this scenario, and so entrenched the practice of its use, that prominent authors have described a recent meta-analysis as a plea for common sense.
In a prospective study conducted at the emergency departments of three U.S. medical centers, 300 patients with severe sepsis and septic shock were randomized to resuscitation to a target central venous pressure of 8-12 mm Hg, mean arterial pressure of >65 mm Hg, and either ScvO2 70% or lactate clearance >10% at 2 hours after initiation of resuscitation. The primary outcome was absolute in-hospital mortality. Overall, 23% of patients in the ScvO2 group died, compared with 17% in the lactate clearance group; the 6% difference between groups did not reach the predetermined statistical threshold of a 10% difference. Rates of adverse events were similar between groups ...

BACKGROUND: Low central venous pressure (CVP) affects hemodynamic stability and tissue perfusion. This prospective study aimed to evaluate the optimal CVP during partial hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).. METHODS: Ninety-seven patients who underwent partial hepatectomy for HCC had their CVP controlled at a level of 0 to 5 mmHg during hepatic parenchymal transection. The systolic blood pressure (SBP) was maintained, if possible, at 90 mmHg or higher. Hepatitis B surface antigen was positive in 90 patients (92.8%) and cirrhosis in 84 patients (86.6%). Pringle maneuver was used routinely in these patients with clamp/unclamp cycles of 15/5 minutes. The average clamp time was 21.4+/-8.0 minutes. These patients were divided into 5 groups based on the CVP: group A: 0-1 mmHg; B: 1.1-2 mmHg; C: 2.1-3 mmHg; D: 3.1-4 mmHg and E: 4.1-5 mmHg. The blood loss per transection area during hepatic parenchymal transection and the arterial blood gas before and after liver transection were ...
To the Editor: Observing jugular venous pressure (JVP) is central to cardiovascular examination. Lewis, in 1930,1 was the first to report the use of the external jugular vein as a manometer for recording pressure in the right atrium. Unfortunately, some textbooks on clinical examination and many clinical teachers incorrectly state that the external jugular is unreliable for measuring JVP and that only the internal jugular should be used. The problem with this is that the internal jugular vein is located deep within the neck, where it is covered by the sternomastoid muscle and is therefore not usually visible.. ...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether a relationship exists between the inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD) or the superior vena cava diameter (SVCD) measured at the point of entry into the right atrium using transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and the central venous pressure (CVP) under different experimental conditions. Design: Prospective study. Setting: University hospital, single institution. Participants: Seventy patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery. Interventions: CVP, lVCD, and SVCD were measured in a 2-dimensional, long-axis midesophageal bicaval view at end-diastole with electrocardiographic synchronization. Data were recorded during suspended ventilation, before and after leg elevation, and at different levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (0, 5, and 10 cmH(2)O). Measurements and Main Results: The relationship between lVCD and CVP had 2 portions: A first (CVP
Introduction: Pulse pressure variation (PPV) has been proposed as a promising resuscitation goal, but its ability to predict fluid responsiveness has been questioned in various conditions. The purpose of this study was to assess the performance of PPV in predicting fluid responsiveness in experimental hemorrhagic shock with endotoxemia, while comparing it with goals determined by a conventional set of guidelines. Methods: Twenty-seven pigs were submitted to acute hemorrhagic shock with intravenous infusion of endotoxin and randomized to three groups: (i) control; (ii) conventional treatment with crystalloids to achieve and maintain central venous pressure (CVP) 12 to 15 mmHg, mean arterial pressure of 65 mmHg or greater, and SvO(2) (mixed venous oxygen saturation) of 65% or greater; (iii) treatment to achieve and maintain PPV of 13% or less. Parametric data were analyzed by two-way analysis of variance and Tukey test and differences in crystalloid volumes by t test. Predictive values of ...
Central venous pressure (CVP) and right atrial pressure (RAP) are important parameters in the complete hemodynamic assessment of a patient. Sonographic measurement of the inferior vena cava (IVC) diameter is a non-invasive method of estimating these parameters, but there are limited data summarizing its diagnostic accuracy across multiple studies. We performed a comprehensive review of the existing literature to examine the diagnostic accuracy and clinical utility of sonographic measurement of IVC diameter as a method for assessing CVP and RAP. We performed a systematic search using PubMed of clinical studies comparing sonographic evaluation of IVC diameter and collapsibility against gold standard measurements of CVP and RAP. We included clinical studies that were performed in adults, used current imaging techniques, and were published in English. Twenty one clinical studies were identified that compared sonographic assessment of IVC diameter with CVP and RAP and met all inclusion criteria. Despite
The reliability of the individual practitioner in finding the jugular venous pulse is notoriously unreliable. Given the safety of ultrasound, its relatively cheap cost and its easy access, recent studies have looked into the possibility of ultrasound guided determination of the jugular venous pulse. Two separate studies in 2010, one by Northern Ontario Medical School, and the other by the University of Iowa have suggested a much higher reliability in ultrasound-determined jugular venous pulse. However, as with any new technological method it warrants further research before its application clinically ...
To prove my point I ask you, does the quality or quantity of bowel sounds matter in a patient without bowel complaints? Is there any part of the head exam that would change in the course of an inpatient admission? The lung exam may change in a case of pneumonia but isnt the fever curve and the general appearance of the patient better and more important to note? The rales of heart failure may improve in a case of congestive heart failure, but Id say that when your patient is sleeping flat, no longer dyspneic, and no longer tripoding, the pulmonary finding of rales is irrelevant ...

Patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest generally have poor outcomes. Guidelines for treatment can be complicated and difficult to implement. This study examined the feasibility of implementing a care bundle including therapeutic hypothermia (TH) and early hemodynamic optimization for comatose patients with return of spontaneous circulation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The study included patients over a 2-year period in the ED and intensive care unit of an academic tertiary-care medical center. The first year (prebundle) provided a historical control, followed by a prospective observational period of bundle implementation during the second year. The bundle elements included (a) TH initiated; (b) central venous pressure/central venous oxygen saturation monitoring in 2 h; (c) target temperature in 4 h; (d) central venous pressure greater than 12 mmHg in 6 h; (e) MAP greater than 65 mmHg in 6 h; (f) central venous ...
Influence of stroke volume variation on fluid treatment and postoperative complications in thoracic surgery Cengiz Sahutoglu, Erbil Turksal, Seden Kocabas, Fatma Zekiye Askar Department of Anesthesiology and Reanimation, Ege University School of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey Background: Fluid management in critically ill patients usually relies on increasing preload to augment cardiac output. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate whether stroke volume variation (SVV) can guide fluid therapy and reduce complications.Patients and methods: In this retrospective study, a total of 88 patients who underwent lobectomy were divided into two groups: group 1 (SVV, n=43) and group 2 (conventional or central venous pressure [CVP], n=45). Heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, SVV (only group 1), CVP (all patients), urea, creatinine, and hemoglobin levels before and after surgery, use of fluid, blood and inotropic agents, and postoperative complications were recorded retrospectively.Results: The mean age of
This calculator is used to calculate the cerebral perfusion pressure using the Mean Art, Intracranial, Central venous pressure. CPP is the net pressure gradient causing blood flow to the brain (brain perfusion). Formula: CPP = MAP - ICP OR CPP = MAP - CVP Where, MAP = Mean arterial pressure. ICP = Intracranial pressure. CVP = Central venous pressure.
We included 777 patients [age: 63 ± 15 years; female gender: 274 (35 %); simplified acute physiology score II: 55.9 ± 20.6; ICU length of stay: 6 days (interquartile range (IQR) 3-13); ICU mortality: 32.8 %] and surveyed 2,694 FBs. At enrolment mean arterial pressure was 63 mmHg (IQR 55-71). The most frequent triggers of FB were hypotension, low urine output, tachycardia, skin mottling and hyperlactataemia. Amount of fluid given at each FB was highly variable between centres. Crystalloids were used in 91 % (2,394/2,635) and synthetic colloids in 3.3 % (87/2,635) of FBs. Overall, clinicians used any kind of haemodynamic assessment (central venous pressure measurement, predictive indices of fluid responsiveness, echocardiography, cardiac output monitoring or a combination of these) in 23.6 % (635/2,694) of all FBs surveyed, with an important between-centre heterogeneity.. ...
To evaluate the feasibility of an experimental model of donors after cardiac death in remote ischemic preconditioning studies. METHODS: Twelve Landrace pigs were used as organ donors. They underwent cardiac arrest by coronary en block suture and interruption of ventilatory support. Haemodynamic data regarding the donor surgical protocol were evaluated. Studies variables included mean heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean arterial pressure, central venous pressure and oxygen saturation and the time to death. RESULTS: Haemodynamic parameter indicated that the circulatory failure occurred after nine minutes of en block coronary suture and respiratory support interruption. The circulatory collapse occurred evenly across all groups. The heart rate and central venous pressure were statistically different between groups (p=0.023 and p=0.04), respectively. The remote preconditioning resulted in delayed time of death. CONCLUSIONS: The model is feasible, and was easily ...

Introduction: Although the venous collapsibility index (VCI) and central venous pressure (CVP) have been shown to correlate reasonably well, little has been reported on the relationships between VCI and other commonly used hemodynamic variables (i.e., HR, blood pressure). This is a retrospective, post hoc analysis of data from a recently completed 3-year prospective study of VCI in critically ill and injured patients. Materials and Methods: A total of 267 previously recorded data pairs in a group of 82 adults (≥18 to ,90 years) patients were included in this analysis. Subsequent correlations were performed between VCI and the following clinical parameters: (a) Heart rate (HR), (b) systolic blood pressure (SBP), (c) diastolic blood pressure (DBP), (d) mean arterial pressure (MAP), (e) pulse pressure, (f) abdominal perfusion pressure (APP or MAP-CVP), (g) positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), head-of-bed elevation, and (h) HR-blood pressure index (i.e., HR minus MAP).

BACKGROUND: Dissection of aorta is a rare, but fatal complication of aortic cannulation in cardiac surgery can be caused by the sudden rise in blood pressure and hemodynamic variations. METHODS: In this study, 90 patients aged 18 years or older undergoing cardiac surgery were divided into two equal groups. Under similar conditions, trial group received 1.5 mg/kg of lidocaine for 90 s before cannulation and control group received normal saline. Hemodynamic parameters of patients including systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), and central venous pressure before cannulation and 1, 3, and 5 min after cannulation were recorded in a form ...
In addition to activating T and B lymphocytes, interleukin 1 (IL-1) induces several hematologic and metabolic changes typical of host responses to infection and injury. We now report a new biological property, namely, the induction of hypotension. Rabbits given a single intravenous injection of recombinant human IL-1-beta (5 micrograms/kg) rapidly developed decreased systemic arterial pressure, which reached the lowest levels after 50-60 min and slowly returned to pre-IL-1 values after 3 h. Associated with the hypotension, systemic vascular resistance and central venous pressure fell, while cardiac output and heart rate increased. These responses were prevented by ibuprofen given 15 min before the IL-1. A bolus injection of IL-1 followed by a 2-h infusion sustained the hypotension and was associated with leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. Ibuprofen given at the mid-point of the infusion reversed the changes in all hemodynamic parameters, but had no effect on the leukopenia or thrombocytopenia. ...
The global Hemodynamic Monitoring Devices Market is expected to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing demand for non-invasive monitoring techniques coupled with the rising prevalence of chronic illness is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The hemodynamic monitoring market is influenced by new technologies such as echocardiography, thoracic electrical bio-impedance and others that maybe used to non-invasively monitor parameters such as cardiac output, arterial pressure, blood oxygen level, and central venous pressure. Furthermore, the rising population of critically ill patients coupled with defective healthcare facilities with drawbacks, such as understaffing, is propelling market players to develop minimal invasive hemodynamic monitoring devices that may be used in clinical and home care settings. Along with the new product development, the market is also anticipated to witness the development of technologies ...
