Clinical blood pressure measurements conventionally have been taken while subjects are seated and at rest. FFA aviation medical examiners are required to measure blood pressure while the airman is in a recumbent position. Concern for possible positional differences in blood pressure values generated this study. Calibrated apparatus and objective methodology ...

Four cases of adult respiratory distress syndrome secondary to viral interstital pneumonia were treated successfully. The illnesses started with a prodrome of upper respiratory symptoms. The development of dyspnea was a key symptom from which point respiratory failure developed within 24 to 48 hours. Chest roentgenograms showed alveolar infiltrative patterns ...

In 78 patients with chronic asthma the increase in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV-1) after the administration by intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (I.P.P.V.) of 10 mg of salbutamol was compared with that recorded after the inhalation of a conventional dose (200 mug) from a pressurized canister. The mean increase ...

The low-pressure propellants influence predominantly the circulation, whereas the high pressure propellants affect the respiration in anesthetized monkeys. There are four groups according to the level of toxicity: Class 1, low-pressure propellants of high toxicity that cause tachycardia and hypotension; Class 2, low-pressure propellants of intermediate toxicity that influence either ...

The helium dilution technique for the measurement of functional residual capacity (FRC) is reviewed with special reference to anaesthesia. A modification is described which permits measurements to be made during intermittent positive pressure ventilation. This modification causes minimal interference with the circuit as it is used for spontaneous respiration. The ...

The bronchodilator and cardiac effects produced by aerosols of 0.5% salbutamol and 0.5% and 1% rimiterol administered for three minutes in 40% oxygen by intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (I.P.P.V.) were compared in 15 asthmatic patients. Salbutamol and both the concentrations of rimiterol were equipotent in peak bronchodilator effect, but salbutamol had ...

Deep vein thrombosis was found at postmortem in patients treated by bed rest for myocardial infarction. We were asked to include deep calf massage to our programmed treatments of such patients in an attempt to prevent thromboses. On discussion, our Electrotherapy Department suggested that faradism under pressure might be more ...

The bronchodilator and cardiac effects produced by aerosols of 0.5% isoprenaline and of 0.25, 0.5, and 1% salbutamol administered in 40% oxygen by intermittent positive-pressure ventilation were compared in 24 asthmatic patients. Isoprenaline and salbutamol in concentrations of 0.5% were equipotent in peak bronchodilator effect; salbutamol was superior in total ...

Ninety-one infants with respiratory failure secondary to primary pulmonary disease and with a birth weight of 1000 g. or over have been managed in a negative-pressure respirator (Air-Shields) over a three-year period. Of these the failure in 87 was due to respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and in four it resulted ...

Tissue viability nurses (TVNs) have always been interested in pressure ulcers. Many found our way into the specialism because of this interest and passion. We have always believed most of them could be prevented and our desire, our goal has been to prevent all avoidable pressure ulcers.

This article discusses the role of vital sign data collection in the acute setting when assessing patients at risk of or actually clinically deteriorating. Specifically, the article focuses on explaining the important concepts of mean arterial blood pressure and pulse pressure as indicators of clinical deterioration.

This study has demonstrated that type A botulinum toxin has a depressant effect on the cortical electrical activity of anesthetized and unanesthetized monkeys. Simultaneous recordings of vital signs indicated a relative lack of change in the electrocardiogram, respiration, blood pressure, and heart rate during this time. The change in the ...

Minute amounts of Locke's or Tyrode's solution have been brought into contact with the interstitial connective tissue of the skin of the living mouse, at atmospheric pressure, in such a manner that the blood or lymphatic vessels are not entered directly. Under such circumstances these absorbable fluids enter the tissue ...

The average branchial blood pressure in sand sharks was 32 mm. of mercury. The highest recorded in a resting animal was 43 mm. The average dorsal or systemic pressure was 23.3 mm.; highest 30 mm. The ratio of branchial to systemic pressure is about 3 to 2. The pressure in ...

The maintenance of life of an individual with an open double pneumothorax under differential pressure depends essentially upon the normal position of the lower lobes of the lungs and their close approximation to the diaphragm, especially of the posterior parts of the lobes. A complete dislodgment of both lower lobes ...
