INTRODUCTION: There is a high tendency for traffic accidents in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Thus it's recommended to investigate OSAS symptoms before certification of professional drivers. However, to what degree OSAS symptoms predict traffic accidents is not clear. We aimed to investigate the relationship between OSAS symptoms and traffic accidents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five hundred twenty bus drivers working at Istanbul Electricity, Tramway and Tunnel (IETT) general management were randomly selected...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the safety and utility of immediate exercise treadmill testing (IETT) of low risk patients presenting to the emergency department with known coronary artery disease (CAD). BACKGROUND: More than 70% of the two million patients admitted to U.S. hospitals annually for suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are found not to have had a cardiac event. We have previously demonstrated the safety and efficacy of IETT of selected low risk patients without known CAD presenting to the emergency department with chest pain...

Endotracheal tube resistance may increase upper airway resistance and the work of breathing beyond the normal range in adults of children who are chronically intubated and receiving intermittent mandatory ventilation. The purpose of this study was to measure the resistance of infant endotracheal tubes (IETTs) over the range of normal infant respiratory flows while systematically changing length, diameter, and carrier gas density. Resistance was measured in IETTs of 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 mm inner diameter at flows increasing from 10--150 ml/sec, using both air and 80% helium- 20% oxygen (He-O2) as the carrier gases...
