Tight Glycemic Control in Critically Ill Children
01/01/70 - Tight glycemic control to a blood glucose level of 80 to 110 mg per deciliter (4.4 to 6.1 mmol per liter) was originally shown to reduce morbidity and mortality in a single-center, randomized clinical trial involving critically ill adult surgical patients, but subsequent trials involving adults…

Gas in the Left Atrium and Ventricle

Registry-Based Prospective, Active Surveillance of Medical-Device Safety
01/01/70 - Medical devices have revolutionized health care, but assurance of their postmarketing safety relies on voluntary reporting of adverse events. This system has resulted in incomplete ascertainment and an inability to evaluate the safety of medical devices in an active, prospective fashion. Early…

Mycobacterium chimaera Spread from Heating and Cooling Units in Heart Surgery
01/01/70 - To the Editor: Recent articles have described patients with infections due to a form of nontuberculous mycobacteria, Mycobacterium chimaera, that developed after cardiac surgery. Infections have been publicly reported in five countries, and it has been noted that these infections developed after…

Linkage of Safety Information to Regulatory Action
01/01/70 - The evolution of medical devices during the past 50 years has had a major positive effect on human health ? and we can be certain that the devices that are available now will change substantially over time. We can also be certain that complications and failures associated with such devices that are…

Anesthesia and Developing Brains ? Implications of the FDA Warning
01/01/70 - For more than 15 years, the potential for lasting neurotoxic effects of agents used to induce general anesthesia and sedation when administered to young children ? and indirectly through pregnant women to fetuses with developing brains ? has been a subject of concern and considerable research…

A Fully Magnetically Levitated Circulatory Pump for Advanced Heart Failure
01/01/70 - A scarcity of effective therapeutic options for advanced heart failure has led to the development of durable mechanical circulatory support devices. Left ventricular assist devices, more accurately known as left ventricular assist systems, increase the rate of survival and improve quality of life…

Intrapericardial Left Ventricular Assist Device for Advanced Heart Failure
01/01/70 - Advanced heart failure is characterized by profound limitations in survival, functional status, and quality of life despite treatment with evidence-based therapies. Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) offer patients with this condition a therapeutic option that provides circulatory support…

Mechanical Circulatory Support Devices ? In Progress
01/01/70 - Clinical research into mechanical circulatory support systems dates back to the 1960s, with the first reported successful human implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) for postoperative heart failure, in a 37-year-old woman with aortic insufficiency and mitral stenosis. Early…

Therapeutic Hypothermia after In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in Children
01/01/70 - Therapeutic hypothermia for comatose adults who have had an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest was recommended on the basis of results of clinical trials reported in 2002. More recent trials have shown that fever prevention with therapeutic normothermia is equally efficacious as therapeutic hypothermia…
