[21] General resuscitation measures should be started without delay, which include supplemental oxygen, establishment of reliable intravenous access and basic haemodynamic monitoring in the form of heart rate, BP and oxygen saturation.
It was concluded that with Vecuronium produced more haemodynamic stability compared to Atracurium but there is slower spontaneous recovery of residual neuromuscular blockade than with Atracurium.
In such a case, drug selection should be made carefully to achieve pharmacological control of haemodynamics. Urapidil was selected taking its advantage of no obvious influence on ICP.
CSBP is an important parameter characterising central haemodynamics and is expected to become the therapeutic target in patients with arterial hypertension.
Information regarding the haemodynamics of cannulation and fistula flow have been presented here as examples and we have found that shallow needle angles and lower pump flow rates may minimise vessel damage.
Safety was defined as follows: that ABG results were not worse than the baseline after each intervention; that high inspiratory pressures (greater than 35 cm [H.sub.2]O) were not encountered; and that haemodynamic parameters (BP and HR) were not compromised, compared with baseline.
Numerous previous studies [6, 8, 9] support the effect of ST36 acupuncture treatment on cerebral haemodynamics. We previously used single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to demonstrate that electroacupuncture at right ST36 and ST41 acupoints significantly increased the regional CBF in both inferior parietal lobes [9].
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.
[13,14] There is no significant effect on systemic haemodynamics, because the area occluded is relatively small.
Previous studies have described the prevalence, location, morphology, and haemodynamics changes of MB-MCA on the basis of invasive studies such as CAG and IVUS [4-10].
