OBJECTIVE: Patients are often transported within the hospital, especially in cases of critical illness for which computed tomography (CT) is performed. Since increased transport time increases the risks of complications, reducing transport time is important for patient safety. This study aimed to evaluate the ability of our newly invented device, the Easy Tube Arrange Device (ETAD), to reduce transport time for CT evaluation in cases of critical illness. METHODS: This prospective randomized control study included 60 volunteers...

OBJECTIVE: Critically ill patients sometimes require transport to another location. Longer intra-hospital transport time increases the risk of hemodynamic instability and associated complications. Therefore, reducing intra-hospital transport time is critical. Our objective was to evaluate whether or not a new device the easy tube arrange device (ETAD) has the potential to reduce intra-hospital transport time of critically ill patients. METHODS: We enrolled volunteers for this prospective randomized controlled study...

BACKGROUND: The recent discovery of cell cycle arrest biomarkers, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-2 and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 7 (IGFBP7), has led to a newly available clinical test for acute kidney injury. The performance of these markers in preclinical studies has not been established. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the performance of TIMP-2 and IGFBP7 in rats undergoing cecal ligation and puncture. METHODS: In this secondary analysis, we analyzed banked urine samples from 60 Sprague-Dawley rats undergoing cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)...

Cardiovascular arrest may be followed by severe respiratory insufficiency due to an increase in the pressure in the pulmonary vascular system, an alteration in capillary permeability, or both. Extracorporeal circulation (ECC), on the other hand, can lead to a change in capillary integrity ('capillary leakage') caused by the unphysiologic perfusion patterns and/or activation of various mediator systems. Pulmonary hyperhydration (increased extravascular lung water [EVLW]) seems to be the most important factor limiting pulmonary function in this situation...

diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
