Wahlen and colleagues showed that clinically undetected LMA malpositioning is a significant risk factor for gastric air insufflation
in children between 3 and 11 years, undergoing positive pressure ventilation, especially at inspiratory airway pressures above 17 cmH2O.
He mentioned that the system can also provide some protection for the operating room staff from inhaling carcinogens, organisms and pathogens that are pumped into the air during the conventional insufflation
*The approval of the Product was announced in a news release entitled "PROTOCO2L Carbon Dioxide Insufflation
System for CT Colonography Receives Approval in Japan" on August 10, 2011.
In the other group, air insufflation
was performed as usual.
Much research has been conducted regarding automatic vs manual insufflation
, and it appears that automatic insufflation
is preferable for optimal colon distention.
Since a working group of the European Commission's Scientific Committee adopted a more relaxed attitude towards insufflation
, other member states are profiting by processing lambs exported live from Britain to the specification preferred by Greece and other Mediterranean countries where lightweight Welsh lamb is popular.
is the process of injecting gas via machine (an insufflator) into the intra-abdominal space to create a tent to allow for the safe placement of later trocars, visualization of the operative field, and manipulation of instruments during the procedure.
Recent experiences with laparoscopy has revealed significant complication associated with Veress needle insufflation
such as gas embolism, subcutaneous emphysema, failed pneumoperitoneum with resultant failed laparoscopy and bowel and visceral insufflations
When haemodynamically stable conditions were reached, measurements were performed at the following four points: after induction of anaesthesia in the supine position ([T.sub.S]), three minutes after pneumoperitoneum during which time insufflation
pressure was set to 20 mmHg ([T.sub.P]), three minutes after the steep Trendelenburg position (35[degrees] which was measured with protractor) was added to pneumoperitoneum during which time insufflation
pressure was set to 15 mmHg ([T.sub.P+T]), and three minutes after administration of 500 ml of colloid (Voluven[R]; Fresenius Kabi, Germany) over ten minutes using an infusion pump in the [T.sub.P+T] position ([T.sub.P+T/VL]) (Figure 1).
In its simplest form, the outline of the organs is achieved by pumping air into the abdominal cavity, known as tubal insufflation
and its diagnostics subsidiary EIDIA Co., Ltd announced today that EIDIA received approval on August 8, 2011 to manufacture and market PROTOCO2L, Japan's first carbon dioxide insufflation
system for use as a medical device in CT Colonography, along with the carbon dioxide insufflation
tube PROTOCO2L Catheter Set (collectively referred to as "the Product").
* PHYSICIAN'S DEFENSE Laparoscopy was appropriate for the patient's symptoms; insufflation
