A Case of Acute Pancreatitis without Enzyme Elevation - A Rare Presentation of a Common Condition

Edupuganti Mohan Mallikarjuna Rao, Vjayanthi Ganga, Michael Moore and Srikanth Medarametla

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 30, 2015

Acute Pancreatitis is most often diagnosed based on a threefold elevation of amylase and lipase in the appropriate clinical setting. Very rarely the enzyme levels may be completely normal casting a doubt on the diagnosis. We present a case of acute pancreatitis without elevation of enzymes, review the literature, enlist the situations where serum enzyme levels are not elevated, discuss the diagnos...

Mannitol is one of the most commonly used osmotic diuretics during renal transplant surgery. Two concentrations of mannitol, 10% and 20%, are available, however there is no consensus about which concentration is to be preferred.

Severe Respiratory Suppression Secondary to Buprenorphine Treated with Volume Assured Pressure Support (VAPS)

Robert J Farney, Boaz Markewitz, Amanda M McDonald and Jill Rhead

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 16, 2015

The optimal therapy of chronic opioid induced sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is unclear. Supplemental oxygen may potentially prolong central apneas and increase respiratory suppression. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is generally ineffective or may even augment central apneas. Therapy with an Adaptive Servo-Ventilation (ASV) device is the most successful option for most etiologies of...

The Effect of Dexmedetomidine and Propofol on Oxidative Stress Parameters during Lower Extremity Surgery: A Prospective Randomized Trial

Safinaz Karabayirli, Ismail Uras, Cemile Koca, Merve Ergin, Ruveyda Irem Demircioglu, Bunyamin Muslu

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: September 12, 2015

Tourniquets are routinely applied during lower extremity surgery in order to reduce bleeding during surgery, provide better surgical conditions and consequently to shorten the duration of the operation. However, an inflammatory response is often activated by tourniquet application, leading to prolonged ischemia and reperfusion; consequently, organ damage such as acute lung injury may occur. Muscul...
