Continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVAD) require therapeutic anticoagulation which is often interrupted for procedures or bleeding. Prior to the availability of four factor prothrombin complex concentrate (4F-PCC) in the United States, warfarin was held and its effects reversed by vitamin K or fresh frozen plasma. We evaluated the use of 4F-PCC for temporary warfarin reversal in patients with CF-LVADs and assessed outcomes. This analysis is a retrospective study of CF-LVAD patients who received 4F-PCC for warfarin reversal in the setting of bleeding or need for urgent or elective procedures...

Narcolepsy-cataplexy is a chronic neurological disorder caused by loss of orexin (hypocretin)-producing neurons, associated with excessive daytime sleepiness, sleep attacks, cataplexy, sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations, and fragmentation of nighttime sleep. Currently, human narcolepsy is treated by providing symptomatic therapies, which can be associated with an array of side effects. Although peripherally administered orexin does not efficiently penetrate the blood-brain barrier, centrally delivered orexin can effectively alleviate narcoleptic symptoms in animal models...

BACKGROUND: Childbirth may cause the most severe pain some women experience in their lifetime. Epidural analgesia is an effective form of pain relief during labour and is considered to be the reference standard. Traditionally epidural analgesia has been delivered as a continuous infusion via a catheter in the epidural space, with or without the ability for the patient to supplement the analgesia received by activating a programmable pump to deliver additional top-up doses, known as patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA)...

REVIEW
A Quintal, V Messier, R Rabasa-Lhoret, E Racine
The artificial pancreas combines a hormone infusion pump with a continuous glucose ontinuous glucose monitoring, supported by a dosing algorithm currently installed on the pump. It allows for dynamic infusions of insulin (and possibly other hormones such as glucagon) tailored to patient needs. For patients with type 1 diabetes the artificial pancreas has been shown to prevent more effectively hypoglycaemic events and hyperglycaemia than insulin pump therapy and has the potential to simplify care. However, the potential ethical issues associated with the upcoming integration of the artificial pancreas into clinical practice have not yet been discussed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sensor-augmented pump therapy (SAP) combines real time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) with Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) and provides additional benefits beyond those provided by CSII alone. SAP with automated insulin suspension provides early warning of the onset of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia and has the functionality to suspend insulin delivery if sensor glucose levels are predicted to fall below a predefined threshold. Aim of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of SAP with automated insulin suspension versus CSII alone in type 1 diabetes...

The AvalonElite double lumen cannula (DLC) provides total cavopulmonary assist (CPA) in failing Fontan sheep, but recirculation limits reliability. To improve CPA performance, a two-valve extracardiac conduit (ECC) was used to bracket infusion blood toward pulmonary artery (PA). A total cavopulmonary connection with failing Fontan circulation adult sheep model was created with valved ECC (n = 6). The valved ECC was connected to superior/inferior venae cavae (SVC/IVC) and right PA. The AvalonElite DLC was inserted from right jugular vein with infusion opening between the ECC valves...

Triiodothyronine (T3) and renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are functionally related in cardiovascular system. Recently, in an in vivo myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) model in rats, we showed that T3 treatment improved the post-ischemic recovery of cardiac function. In the present study, we used the same experimental model of regional I/R, obtained by 30 min occlusion of the left descending coronary artery, followed by 3-days of reperfusion, to investigate the effect of 48-h treatment (started 1 day after ischemia) with 6 µg/kg/day T3 or vehicle...

Patupilone is a microtubule-targeted cytotoxic agent with clinical efficacy, but causes diarrhoea in more than 80% of patients. The efficacy and tolerability of patupilone delivered continuously by subcutaneous (s.c.) mini-pumps [(mini-pump dose (MPD)] or by intravenous bolus administration [intravenous bolus dose (IVBD)] were compared preclinically to determine whether the therapeutic index could be improved. The antiproliferative potency in vitro of patupilone was determined by measuring total cell protein...
