The physiological consequences of intake of carbohydrate-rich sip drinks up to 2 hours before surgery are an up to 50% reduction in insulin resistance, which in turn shortens hospital stay and reduces postoperative complications; [6,8] lower muscle catabolism; [9-11] improved intraoperative haemodynamic
stability, particularly in children, as a result of more favourable fluid balance status; reduced days to discharge fitness; and superior handgrip strength, a sensitive marker of early muscle protein loss.
Patients included were also required to have had stable haemodynamic
and respiratory parameters over the previous 12 hours.
The study protocol was stopped in patients requiring inotropes or vasopressors for unstable haemodynamics
(mean arterial blood pressure <60 mmHg), or the occurrence of an arrhythmia.
Twelve months of oral sildenafil treatment was well tolerated and appeared to improve exercise capacity, systemic arterial oxygen saturation and haemodynamic
parameters in patients with Eisenmenger syndrome.
William Harvey lay the foundation for modern haemodynamics
in 1616, with the suggestion that the heart propels blood around a closed system.
in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: effect of a dietary/pharmacological treatment.
A study of one bout of isotonic exercise with different intensities found minimal changes in central haemodynamics
, which were well tolerated by the chronic heart failure patients (King et al 2000).
in coal workers' pneumoconiosis and non-p|neumoconiotic patients with chronic obstructive airways disease.
in leptospirosis: Effects of plasmapheresis and continuous venovenous haemofiltration.
Their topic include the basic ultrasonic anatomy of the lower limbs venous system, the definition and patho-physiological mechanisms of chronic venous insufficiency, pelvic shunts, techniques for assessing the haemodynamics
of venous insufficiency, how to perform a duplex mapping, and the false problem of perforators.
Sleep-related oxygen desaturation and daytime pulmonary haemodynamics
in COPD patients.
Furthermore current data on the use of ultrasound and intrapartum Doppler velocimetry especially in the assessment of fetal cerebral haemodynamics
, which shows promise as a non-invasive tool in the armamentarium of already existing intrapartum fetal surveillance technologies will be presented.
