We compared the new Pulsioflex and the Vigileo devices to measure cardiac index (CI) in critically ill patients. Both devices measure CI by pulse-contour analysis. The Pulsioflex device also allows an auto-calibration (not based on thermodilution).
Patients were included if we ad
The safety of patient-controlled i.v. analgesia (PCA) with remifentanil for obstetrical analgesia remains a matter of concern. The efficacy of remifentanil bolus application, that is, the coincidence between pain and remifentanil effect-site concentration, may be improved by forecasting c
Although infusion of fibrinogen concentrate is increasingly used in bleeding patients after cardiac surgery, safety data are scarce. We aimed to evaluate the effect of perioperative administration of fibrinogen concentrate on postoperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing ca
