Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness and Fractional exhaled nitric oxide | Asthma Management

Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) is one of pathophysiological features usually associated with chronic inflammation and reversible obstruction of airways in patients with asthma. This phenomenon is also found out in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and known as a risk factor for the development of respiratory symptoms as well as a predictor for … Continue reading Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness and Fractional exhaled nitric oxide | Asthma Management

Effect of general anesthesia on Central Venous Oxygen Saturation

Anesthetic care underwent significant changes over time due to scientific growth and development of new techniques for perioperative monitoring. Central venous oxygen saturation (SvcO2) is a variable of great interest since it co elements hemodynamic information by evaluating oxygen supply, consumption, and global use. General anesthesia diminishes the body’s metabolic rate and oxygen requirements, therefore … Continue reading Effect of general anesthesia on Central Venous Oxygen Saturation
