BACKGROUND: In patients who developed a combined situation of severe acute respiratory distress syndrome with refractory hypoxemia and acute cardiac failure with circulatory collapse, traditional veno-venous or veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation approach alone may not be sufficient enough to maintain both an acceptable range of gas exchange and a hemodynamic stability. CASE REPORT: A 27-year-old male patient was suffering from severe acute respiratory distress syndrome caused by community-acquired pneumonia and acute myocarditis with circulatory shock...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence and significant risk factors for pathologic hearing screening test results in high-risk neonates and the feasibility of implementing hearing screening program using automated otoacoustic emission (OAE)/ auditory brain stem response (ABR) device performed by trained nursing staffs. STUDY DESIGN: Single-center prospective, descriptive study. MATERIAL AND METHOD: All neonates admitted to the Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, who met the high-risk criteria according to Joint Committee of Infant Hearing 1994, American Academy of Pediatrics, were screened with one-step protocol using an automated OAE/ABR device (AccuScreen, GN Otometrics, Denmark)...

Of 142 adult patients undergoing open-heart surgery, 123 were extubated either in the operating room or within 3 hours after admission to the recovery room, to avoid the discomfort and risks of prolonged mechanical ventilation. The remaining 19 patients, who had impaired cardiac function, were mechanically ventilated for 1 to 7 days postoperatively. The most important criteria for cardiopulmonary malfunction indicating the need for continued mechnical ventilation were a low mixed venous O2 saturation (SVO2) of less than 60% and a high left atrial pressure (greater than 20 torr)...
