BACKGROUND: The hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) pump is a treatment-delivery method based on the principle of targeting the tumor site directly and can be used alone or in combination with systemic chemotherapy. OBJECTIVES: The intent of this article is to serve as a resource for oncology nurses to safely identify and manage HAI pump complications. These complications include seroma, flipped HAI pump, infection, changes in pressure and temperature, challenging access, dry pump, high residual volume, chemical hepatitis, risk of ulcer, and radiologic imaging considerations...

Cardiac arrest (CA) is a fatal condition with low resuscitation rate and high mortality rate. Most of the survivors have neurological sequelae affecting their quality of life. Targeted temperature management (TTM) has been suggested by a number of studies to increase the survival rate and improve neurological outcome of CA. It is highly recommended by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) for unconscious patients after resuscitation. In this review, we discuss the pathological mechanism of brain injury in CA and applications of TTM in adults with CA, with the aim of providing valuable information for clinical application...

AIM: Previous studies indicated that the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) measured using brain computed tomography (CT) is a prognostic factor for poor neurological outcome after cardiac arrest. However, these studies were retrospective or included a small sample size. We performed a prospective multi-centre observational study to investigate the correlation between the ONSD on early brain CT and neurological outcomes in patients undergoing targeted temperature management (TTM). METHODS: This study used data from the Korean Hypothermia Network prospective registry between November 2015 and October 2016...

AIMS: Mechanical ventilation practices in patients with cardiac arrest are not well described. Also, the effect of temperature on mechanical ventilation settings is not known. The aims of this study were 1) to describe practice of mechanical ventilation and its relation with outcome 2) to determine effects of different target temperatures strategies (33 °C versus 36 °C) on mechanical ventilation settings. METHODS: This is a substudy of the TTM-trial in which unconscious survivors of a cardiac arrest due to a cardiac cause were randomized to two TTM strategies, 33 °C (TTM33) and 36 °C (TTM36)...

The occurrence of shivering during the induction period of targeted temperature management (TTM) remains a therapeutic obstacle, which delays the achievement of target temperature. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors leading to shivering during the induction period. We analyzed a prospective cohort of adult out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survivors treated with TTM from January 2015 to June 2017. Patients who developed shivering during the induction period were compared to those who did not...

Background: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is a life-threatening disease requiring neurocritical care. Delayed cerebral ischemia is a well-known complication that contributes to unfavorable neurological outcomes. Cerebral vasospasm has been thought to be the main cause of delayed cerebral ischemia, and although several studies were able to decrease cerebral vasospasm, none showed improved neurological outcomes. Our target is not cerebral vasospasm but improving neurological outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and predicts in-hospital mortality. To which extent post-resuscitation disease or the initial event of cardiac arrest and the duration of insufficient cardiac output triggers AKI is challenging to discriminate. Knowledge on molecular mediators of AKI is scarce. Early identification of patients at high risk of AKI is hampered by the low sensitivity of the established tests in clinical routine practice...

In this manuscript, we report the design and development of a fast, reliable instrument to run gel-based cassette polymerase chain reactions (PCR). Here termed the GelCycler Mark II, our instrument is a miniaturized molecular testing system that is fast, low cost and sensitive. Cassette PCR utilizes capillary reaction units that carry all reagents needed for PCR, including primers and Taq polymerase, except the sample, which is loaded at the time of testing. Cassette PCR carries out real time quantitative PCR followed by melt curve analysis (MCA) to verify amplicon identity at the expected melt temperature (Tm)...

Out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains not an uncommon occurrence in USA and rest of the world. However, the survival to discharge following an episode of OHCA in adults is still very disappointing at around 10%. Several areas of improvement including education of general public in early Cardio Pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by bystander, chest compression first, and improvement of Emergency Medical response time have had a positive effect in outcomes and survival but much still needs to be done. Recently new data has emerged with regards to post resuscitation care and mild induced hypothermia (now preferably called; targeted temperature management {TTM}) and several advances have been made...

Refractory out of hospital cardiac arrest is a common problem that is associated with poor overall survival rates and neurological outcomes. There are various definitions that have been used but the most accepted one is cardiac arrest that requires more than 10 minutes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) efforts or more than 3 defibrillation attempts. There have been different pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies that were studied in these patients. None of the antiarrhythmic or vasopressor medications have been consistently shown to improve survival or neurological outcomes in this subset of patients...

BACKGROUND: Optimal hemodynamic goals in post-resuscitation patients are not clear. Previous studies have reported an association between lower heart rate and good outcome in patients receiving targeted temperature management (TTM) after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. METHODS: We analyzed heart rate (HR) and outcome data of 504 post-resuscitation patients from the prospectively collected database of the FINNRESUSCI study. One-year neurologic outcome was dichotomized by the Cerebral Performance Category (CPC) to good (1-2) or poor (3-5)...

BACKGROUND: The Osborn or J-wave, an upright deflection of the J-point on the electrocardiogram (ECG), is often observed during severe hypothermia. A possible relation between Osborn waves (OW) and increased risk of ventricular arrhythmia has been reported. We sought to determine whether the level of targeted temperature management (TTM) following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) affects the prevalence of OW and to assess the associations between OW and risk of ventricular arrhythmia and death...

Antibodies are the most prolific biologics in research and clinical environments because of their ability to bind targets with high affinity and specificity. However, antibodies also carry liabilities. A significant portion of the life science reproducibility crisis is driven by inconsistent performance of research-grade antibodies, and clinical antibodies are often unstable and require costly cold chain management to reach their destinations in active form. In biotechnology, antibodies are also limited by difficulty integrating them in many recombinant systems due to their size and structural complexity...

Background: Early brain CT is one of the most useful tools for estimating the prognosis in patients with post-cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS) at the emergency department (ED). The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognosis-prediction accuracy of the emergency physicians' interpretation of the findings on early brain CT in PCAS patients treated by targeted temperature management (TTM). Methods: This was a double-center, retrospective, observational study. Eligible subjects were cardiac arrest patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for TTM between April 2011 and March 2017...

Ambrosia beetles harbor fungal symbionts that serve as food sources for larvae and adults. These beetles lay their eggs along tunnels in xylem sapwood, which is the substrate for fungal growth. Symbiotic fungi of the genus Raffaelea found in invasive and indigenous ambrosia beetles include the highly virulent plant pathogen Raffaelea lauricola affecting members of the Lauraceae family. R. lauricola is responsible for the deaths of > 500 million trees since 2005. Infection by as few as 100 spores can kill a healthy tree within months...

Guidelines endorse targeted temperature management to reduce neurological sequelae and mortality after cardiac arrest (CA). Additional therapeutic approaches are lacking. Inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) given post systemic ischemia/reperfusion injury improves outcomes. Attenuated inflammation by iNO might be crucial in brain protection. iNO augmented mild therapeutic hypothermia (MTH) may improve outcome after CA exceeding the effect of MTH alone. Following ten minutes of CA and three minutes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, 20 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to receive MTH at 33 °C for 6hrs or MTH + 20ppm iNO for 5hrs; one group served as normothermic control...
