Oxygen saturation and lactate concentration gradient from the right atrium to the pulmonary artery in the immediate postoperative following cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation.

Rev Bras Ter Intensiva 2017 Jul-Sep;29(3):287-292. Epub 2017 Sep 4.

Servicio de Cirugía Cardíaca, Hospital IDCSalud - Albacete, España.

Objective: This prospective study aimed to characterize the changes in blood lactate concentration and blood oxygen saturation in patients during the immediate postoperative period of cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation.

Methods: Blood samples were collected from 35 patients in a rapid and random order from the arterial line and from the proximal and distal port of a pulmonary artery catheter.

Results: The results showed no statistically significant differences between the blood oxygen saturation in the right atrium (72% ± 0.11%) and the blood oxygen saturation in the pulmonary artery (71% ± 0.08%). The blood lactate concentration in the right atrium was 1.7mmol/L ± 0.5mmol/L, and the blood lactate concentration in the pulmonary artery was 1.6mmol/L ± 0.5mmol/L (p < 0.0005).

Conclusion: The difference between the blood lactate concentration in the right atrium and the blood lactate concentration in the pulmonary artery might be a consequence of the low blood lactate concentration in the blood from the coronary sinus, as it constitutes an important substrate for the myocardium during this period. The lack of differences between the blood oxygen saturation in the right atrium and the percentage of blood oxygen saturation in the pulmonary artery suggests a lower oxygen extraction by the myocardium given a lower oxygen consumption.

Analysis of pelagic species decline in the upper San Francisco Estuary using multivariate autoregressive modeling (MAR).

Ecol Appl 2010 Jul;20(5):1417-30

Australian Centre for Biodiversity, School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Melbourne 3800, Australia.

Four species of pelagic fish of particular management concern in the upper San Francisco Estuary, California, USA, have declined precipitously since ca. 2002: delta smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus), longfin smelt (Spirinchus thaleichthys), striped bass (Morone saxatilis), and threadfin shad (Dorosoma petenense). The estuary has been monitored since the late 1960s with extensive collection of data on the fishes, their pelagic prey, phytoplankton biomass, invasive species, and physical factors. We used multivariate autoregressive (MAR) modeling to discern the main factors responsible for the declines. An expert-elicited model was built to describe the system. Fifty-four relationships were built into the model, only one of which was of uncertain direction a priori. Twenty-eight of the proposed relationships were strongly supported by or consistent with the data, while 26 were close to zero (not supported by the data but not contrary to expectations). The position of the 2 per thousand isohaline (a measure of the physical response of the estuary to freshwater flow) and increased water clarity over the period of analyses were two factors affecting multiple declining taxa (including fishes and the fishes' main zooplankton prey): Our results were relatively robust with respect to the form of stock-recruitment model used and to inclusion of subsidiary covariates but may be enhanced by using detailed state-space models that describe more fully the life-history dynamics of the declining species.

Solitary osteochondroma long-term follow-up.

J Pediatr Orthop B 2008 Mar;17(2):91-4

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, University of Navarra, University Clinic of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain.

A series of 113 osteochondromas were treated in our institution with a long-term follow-up. A retrospective study of the cases of solitary osteochondroma diagnosed and treated in our center from 1970 to 2002 was done. A diagnosis for clinical findings in 73% of the patients was made. The most frequent location was the distal femur. Six patients had a recurrence and in two patients the lesions became malignant and chondrosarcoma developed. Relapse of the exostosis is rare, occurring in an estimated 2% of the resections. The growth of an osteochondroma and/or the presence of pain in older patients suggest possible malignancy.

[Flouroquinolone activity in clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae with different susceptibility to penicilline: an epidemiological study in five cities of Mexico].

Gac Med Mex 2005 Jul-Aug;141(4):253-8

Unidad de Epidemiología Clínica, Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán, México, DF, Mexico.

Objective: Determine the susceptibility to five fluoroquinolones and cross-resistance of pneumococcusclinical isolates with different penicillin susceptibilities gathered in a community-based study.

Design: Cross-sectional survey.

Materials: Two hundred and thirty one (231) isolates were obtained from respiratory secretions or blood specimens from 231 patients with acquired acute respiratory infection or bacteremia.

Outcome Measures: In vitro susceptibility to penicillin (PEN), ciprofloxacin (CIP), levofloxacin (LEV), gatifioxacin (GAT), moxifloxacin (MOX) and gemifioxacin (GEM) was determined with minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) using the E test.

Results: 42% of the isolates showed decreased susceptibility to PEN. The lowest antibiotic concentration that inhibited 90% of the isolates was 3 microg/ml (for CIP), 1 microg/ml (for LEV), 0.25 microg/ml (for GAT), 0.125 microg/ml (for MOX) and 0.032 microg/ml (for GEM). Median MIC for LEV, GAT, MOX and GEM increased with decreasing susceptibility to CIP. Susceptibility to CIP was similar between penicillin-susceptible and penicillin-resistant pneumococci.

Conclusion: Third and fourth generation fluoroquinolones showed very high inhibitory activity, higher than that for CIP, for both penicillin-susceptible and penicillin-resistant pneumococci. We noted cross-resistance among fluoroquinolones.
