at risk for hemodynamic compromise. The recommended dose for intubation is 0.3 mg/kg in adults and children, although the dose may be reduced to 0.15 mg/kg in critically ill patients. It can be also be used in procedures as a one-time dose. Etomidate has been shown to depress adrenal cortical function in critically ill patients, [ , ] but this may not be clinically significant in short-term administration. [ ] Because of this effect and because the drug is mixed in propylene glycol, neither titration (...) . Previous Next: Pediatric Considerations Essentially all the sedatives and analgesics listed above can be used in children. However, the clinician should recognize the differences between children and adults and how that relates to the type of sedation chosen. Differences exist in cognitive abilities and developmental status, respiratory mechanics, airway anatomy, drug metabolism, and toxic dosages. Presedation assessment of a child is very different than that of adults and must adapt to the limited
aspiration pneumonia have one or more of the predisposing conditions listed below. Although all the listed conditions predispose the patient to chemical pneumonitis, conditions that alter consciousness and periodontal disease specifically predispose the patient to bacterial pneumonia. The basic pathogenesis of any aspiration event involves impaired swallowing, whether related to medications, anatomy, or neurologic dysfunction. A group that warrants special mention is head and neck cancer patients (...) in the treatment of aspiration pneumonitis, but randomized control studies have been unable to demonstrate a benefit to using high-dose corticosteroids. The role of supplementing corticosteroids in patients with hypotension from septic shock remains controversial. Previously, it was recommended that septic patients who were hypotensive despite fluid resuscitation and vasopressor support be screened for occult adrenal insufficiency. However, current guidelines recommend empiric therapy with stress-dose steroids

(See Etiology and Presentation.) Anatomically, meningitis can be divided into inflammation of the dura (sometimes referred to as pachymeningitis), which is less common, and leptomeningitis, which is more common and is defined as inflammation of the arachnoid tissue and subarachnoid space. (See Anatomy.) Meningitis can also be divided into the following 3 general categories: Bacterial (pyogenic) Granulomatous Aseptic The most common cause of meningeal inflammation is bacterial or viral infection

The current multiple hit theory suggests that a series of toxic cellular insults disrupts orderly genetic reproduction. Symptoms ultimately develop from the uncontrolled disorganized growth that interferes with local or distant anatomy or physiologic processes.

Fenestrated endografting of juxtarenal aneurysms after open aortic surgery. Juxtarenal aneurysms after previous surgical aortic reconstruction constitute a complex clinical scenario. Open redo surgery is technically demanding and usually requires suprarenal or supraceliac clamping. Standard endovascular repair is prohibited due to the lack of a proximal landing zone. We present our experience with fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (F-EVAR) in the treatment of juxtarenal aneurysms after (...) patients (33 male; mean age, 71.5 ± 6.2 years) were treated. Median interval from the primary surgical reconstruction was 126 months (range, 48-223 months). All patients had proximal anatomies precluding standard endovascular techniques and were considered high risk for open repair due to their comorbidities and redo nature of the operation. In total, 111 vessels were targeted: 77 with small fenestrations, 33 with scallops, and 1 vessel with a downward branch. The operation was completed by totally
When the chimney is blocked: malignant renovascular hypertension after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm. The Chimney graft (CG) procedure is one of the novel modification techniques of the endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) surgery to treat suprarenal and juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. Other indications for the use of CG placement include thoracic and thoracoabdominal aneurysms with supraortic branches orifice involvement and cases of common iliac artery aneurysms (...) and conservative treatment was chosen. Seven months after presentation, blood pressure was within normal ranges with little need for antihypertensive therapy.Physicians should be aware that the novel emerging techniques of EVAR to overcome the limitations of the aortic-neck anatomy may still adversely influence the renal outcome with potential development of new-onset hypertension.
, hydrotherapy, craniosacral therapy, chiropractic manipulation, and naturopathic philosophy. Some classes are taught with the same titles as courses in medical programs, but the content is indeed inferior. NDs take gross anatomy, histology, pharmacology, and other basics, but they are not all taught by faculty members with academic expertise. For example, a person who is a “doctor of naprapathy” taught me embryology, and other courses were taught by NDs, often using naturopathic textbooks. Naturopathic (...) not seen. All of this happens under the supervision of instructors, who were educated and trained under this system or one with weaker requirements before the 1990s. Naturopathic students are not trained in medical standards of care, let alone reality. Instructors would commonly discuss a patient’s “vital force” as if this could magically be detected. Frequently, patients presenting with nonspecific symptoms were diagnosed with dubious food allergies, chronic Lyme disease, adrenal fatigue, or yeast

The iliac limbs are fully supported with Nitinol and the bifurcate bodies feature a distal contra-lateral lumen Nitinol support, which in conjunction with a unique intrinsic magnet guidewire system facilitates cannulation of the bifurcate section.

Neonatal Midaortic Syndrome and Renal Artery Atresia Presenting as Malignant Hypertension. We report a case of congenital midaortic syndrome with bilateral renal artery atresia in a premature female neonate born by way of caesarean section secondary to acute onset of decreased fetal movement and polyhydramnios. The infant required cardiopulmonary resuscitation at birth, and initial echocardiogram exhibited normal intracardiac anatomy and mildly depressed left-ventricular systolic function (...) . Within 24 h, the neonate developed severe systemic arterial hypertension and acute renal failure. Ultrasound demonstrated hyperechoic kidneys and a hypoplastic abdominal aorta. Angiography revealed severe suprarenal hypoplasia of the abdominal aorta with bilateral renal artery atresia. Medical support was withdrawn, and the patient died shortly thereafter.
