indicating good outcome. The clinical examination was performed on days 0, 1, 3 and 7 post-arrest, and clinical variables analyzed for importance in prognostication of outcome. A classification and regression tree analysis (CART) was used to develop a predictive algorithm.Good outcome was achieved in 9.9% of patients. In CART analysis, motor response was often chosen as a root node, and spontaneous eye movements, pupillary reflexes, eye opening and cornealreflexes were often chosen as splitting nodes (...) . Over 8% of patients with absent or extensor motor response on day 3 achieved a good outcome, as did 2 patients with myoclonic status epilepticus. The odds of achieving a good outcome were lower in patients who suffered asystole (OR 0.187, 95% CI: 0.039-0.875, p=0.033) compared with ventricular fibrillation or non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia, but some still achieved good outcome. The absence of pupillary and cornealreflexes on day 3 remained highly reliable for predicting poor outcome
of four different protocols: 1) 10 mg kg(-1) alfaxalone; 2) 10 mg kg(-1) alfaxalone + 0.10 mg kg(-1) medetomidine; 3) 20 mg kg(-1) alfaxalone; and 4) 20 mg kg(-1) alfaxalone + 0.05 mg kg(-1) medetomidine. During the experiment, the following variables were recorded: heart rate; respiratory rate; peripheral nociceptive responses; muscle strength; ability to intubate; palpebral, corneal and tap reflexes; and cloacal temperature.Protocols 1 and 2 resulted in moderate sedation with no analgesia
osmolarity, tear instability (tear break-up time [TBUT]), tear reflex (Schirmer's I test), and central corneal sensitivity with the Cochet-Bonnet esthesiometer (Luneau, France) were measured in the HK and control groups.Tear osmolarity, TBUT, Schirmer's I, and central corneal sensitivity were compared between the affected and unaffected eyes of the HK and control groups.Tear osmolarity and tear secretion reflex were similar between the affected and unaffected eyes of the HK group. Corneal sensitivity (...) and TBUT were statistically lower in the affected eyes compared with the unaffected eyes in the HK group (P = 0.001 and P<0.001, respectively). The central corneal sensitivity of unaffected eyes in the HK group was not significantly different from that in the control group (P>0.05). The tear stability and tear secretion reflex were decreased and tear osmolarity was increased in the unaffected eyes of the HK group compared with the control group (P<0.05, all cases). The difference between unaffected
membrane bioengineered eyelid spacer grafts from 2008 through 2011. Outcome measures included lower eyelid height (measured from the corneal light reflex to the lower eyelid margin, or marginal reflex distance-2 [MRD2]), reduction of lagophthalmos, cosmetic appearance, complications, and need for further surgery. Presurgery and postreconstruction photographs were reviewed for functional and cosmetic outcome.A total of 32 Graves patients and 37 eyelids underwent lower eyelid retraction surgery using (...) decellularized porcine-derived membrane. There were 10 male and 22 female patients with mean age of 41.8 ± 8.6 years. Mean improvement in MRD2 was 1.4 ± 0.4 mm. Mean reduction of lagophthalmos was 1.3 ± 0.4 mm. There are statistically significant differences between preoperative and postoperative MRD2 and lagophthalmos (paired t test, both P < .0001). No evidence of infection and corneal erosion was noted and none of the patients needed further surgeries. Prolonged lower lid swelling and slight puffy
Cluster Headache After Cataract Surgery. Symptomatic cluster-like headache has been described with some ophthalmological disorders such as glaucoma, orbital myositis, posterior scleritis, enucleation, herpes zoster ophthalmicus, and cataract surgery.We report a new case of a 79-year-old nonsmoker woman who developed cluster-like symptoms 2 days after a cataract surgery and review the 2 previously reported cases.The surgical technique of cataract removal involves corneal incision, which can (...) trigger the trigeminal-autonomic reflex, a pathophysiological mechanism potentially implicated in idiopathic cluster headache. Differential diagnosis in these cases includes surgical and anesthetic complications.
microscope and wide-angle digital retinal image acquisition system. The retinal fundus examination utilised the RetCam wide-field digital imaging system (Clarity Medical Systems, Pleasanton, California, USA). The external eye, pupillary light reflex, red reflex, opacity of refractive media, anterior chamber and posterior segments were also examined.A total of 3573 healthy full-term newborns were enrolled and examined in the programme. There was detection of 871 abnormal cases (24.4%). The majority (...) of abnormal exams were 769 (21.52%) retinal haemorrhages. Of these, there were 215 cases of significant retinal haemorrhage, possible sight threatening or amblyogenic, representing 6.02% of the total. In addition, 67 cases (1.88%) involved macular haemorrhage. The other 107 cases (2.99%) with abnormal ocular findings included subconjunctival haemorrhage, congenital microphthalmos, congenital corneal leukoma, posterior synechia, persistent pupillary membrane, congenital cataract, enlarged C/D ratio

) motor response was assessed in 811 patients from nine studies. A GCS motor score of 1-2 at 72 h had a high FPR of 0.21 (CI 0.08-0.43). Cornealreflex and pupillary reactivity at 72 h after the arrest were available in 429 and 566 patients, respectively. Bilaterally absent cornealreflexes had an FPR of 0.02 (CI 0.002-0.13). Bilaterally absent pupillary reflexes had an FPR of 0.004 (CI 0.001-0.03).At 72 h after the arrest the motor response to painful stimuli and the cornealreflexes
for recent articles on the assessment of prognosis in persons who are comatose after CPR and therapeutic hypothermia.On the basis of 21 clinical trials, 4 of which yielded level I evidence, 9 level II evidence, and 8 level III evidence, the following were identified as reliable indicators of a poor prognosis: generalized myoclonus, bilateral absence of the pupillary light response or of the cornealreflex, bilateral absence of the cortical components of median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials
temporal half of the lower lid margin in both eyes at the same time. The study participant will be asked to close their eyes during the test. Any excessive irritation signs or reflex tearing will be noted. The extent of the wetting in each strip will be recorded after 5 minutes of testing. The strip will be collected and stored in 1.5ml eppendorf tubes at -80˚C until further tear lipid and protein analysis. Tear break up time (TBUT) [ Time Frame: 7 days ] Keratograph 5M will be used to perform the non (...) invasive tear break up time. Patient will sit comfortably in front of the instrument and blink freely while fixing on a target directly ahead. Once the patient is ready, patient will be instructed to blink once and refrain from blinking. Keratograph 5M is fully automated and it will capture any break or distortion in the image and the time of the break will be noted. Three readings will be taken for each eye to get the average value.

mg/kg b.w. midazoram (Mid.), and 5.0 mg/kg b.w. butorphanol (But.) produced an anesthetic duration of around 40 min in outbred ICR mice. However, the anesthetic effect of the mixture for inbred mice strains remains unknown. Therefore, we examined anesthetic effects of the mixture of Med., Mid., and But. in the BALB/c and C57BL/6J strains. After intraperitoneal injection into mice, right front paw, left hind paw, and tail pinch reflexes as well as corneal and righting reflexes were observed. Every (...) 5 min, we scored each reflex category as 0 for reaction or 1 for no reaction. As long as the total score was at least 4 out of 5, we considered the mixture as putting a mouse in a surgical anesthetic state. The mixture produced an anesthetic duration of more than 45 min in both strains of mice. These results indicate that the mixture of Med., Mid., and But. can be a useful and effective anesthesia for the BALB/c and C57BL/6J strains of inbred mice as well as outbred ICR mice.
minutes. Endotracheal intubation was successful in 80%, 100%, 0% and 30% of turtles, respectively. At 35°C, all animals retained nociceptive sensation in the front limbs, hind limbs and vent, whereas at 20°C a few turtles lost peripheral nociceptive sensation. Corneal and tap reflexes were retained in all trials. Mean heart rates were 30±2 and 66±4 beats minute(-1) at 20 and 35°C, respectively.Alfaxalone administered i.m. in red-eared sliders provided smooth, rapid induction and uneventful recovery (...) respectively. Time to maximal effect and plateau and recovery periods were recorded. Skeletal muscle tone, presence of various reflexes, response to noxious stimuli, and heart rate were assessed.Results are given for protocols 10 mg kg(-1) 20°C; 20 mg kg(-1) 20°C; 10 mg kg(-1) 35°C and 20 mg kg(-1) 35°C, respectively: mean time (±SD) to maximal effect was 16±8, 19±6, 5±2 and 7±5 minutes; duration of the plateau phase was 13±12, 28±13, 8±5 and 8±5 minutes and recovery time was 76±20, 126±17, 28±9 and 41±20
, defined as time to loss of cornealreflex (coma).Lipopolysaccharide caused additional two- to seven-fold (P < 0.001) increases in circulating pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6), worsening liver pathology and associated increases of circulating transaminases as well as increased hyperammonaemia consistent with a further loss of viable hepatocytes. LPS treatment of ALF mice led to a rapid precipitation of hepatic coma and the BBB became permeable to the 25-kDa protein immunoglobulin G (IgG
such as loss of posture, vocalisations and rhythmic breathing. When physically stunning an animal, for example, captive bolt, most important indicators looked at are posture, righting reflex, rhythmic breathing and the corneal or palpebral reflex that should all be absent if the animal is unconscious. Spinal reflexes are difficult as a measure of unconsciousness with this type of stunning, as they may occur more vigorous. For stunning methods that do not physically destroy the brain, for example (...) Indicators used in livestock to assess unconsciousness after stunning: a review Assessing unconsciousness is important to safeguard animal welfare shortly after stunning at the slaughter plant. Indicators that can be visually evaluated are most often used when assessing unconsciousness, as they can be easily applied in slaughter plants. These indicators include reflexes originating from the brain stem (e.g. eye reflexes) or from the spinal cord (e.g. pedal reflex) and behavioural indicators
false-positive rates: bilateral absence of pupillary reflexes more than 24 hours after a return of spontaneous circulation (false-positive rate, 0.02; 95% CI, 0.01-0.06; summary positive likelihood ratio, 10.45; 95% CI, 3.37-32.43), bilateral absence of cornealreflexes more than 24 hours (false-positive rate, 0.04; 95% CI, 0.01-0.09; positive likelihood ratio, 6.8; 95% CI, 2.52-18.38), and bilateral absence of somatosensory-evoked potentials between days 1 and 7 (false-positive rate, 0.03; 95% CI
eyelid position (ie, distance mm from cornealreflex to upper skin fold (FRD1), lowest brow hair to lower limbus (LLB), centre of lower lid to upper lid skin fold (LLF)) and number of points missing in 'superior' and 'superior plus elsewhere' Humphrey 120-point visual field, as well as a Quality-of-life and Visual Function questionnaire before and after brow lift surgery.The strongest correlation between pre-op functional index score and any pre-op objective measure was visual fields (r=-0.46, P
with hypothermia (32-34°C). False-positive rates (FPRs 1 - specificity) with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated for pupillary light responses, cornealreflexes, and motor scores 72 hours after CPR; NSE levels at admission, 12 hours after reaching target temperature, and 36 hours and 48 hours after collapse; and SEPs during hypothermia and after rewarming. The primary outcome was poor outcome, defined as death, vegetative state, or severe disability (Glasgow Outcome Scale 1-3) after 6 (...) months.Of 391 patients included, 53% had a poor outcome. Absent pupillary light responses (FPR 1; 95% CI, 0-7) or absent cornealreflexes (FPR 4; 95% CI, 1-13) 72 hours after CPR, and absent SEPs during hypothermia (FPR 3; 95% CI, 1-7) and after rewarming (FPR 0; 95% CI, 0-18) were reliable predictors. Motor scores 72 hours after CPR (FPR 10; 95% CI, 6-16) and NSE levels were not.In patients with persisting coma after CPR and therapeutic hypothermia, use of motor score or NSE, as recommended in current
