By Dennis T. Mangano PhD, MD (auth.), T. H. Stanley, P. L. Bailey (eds.)

Anesthesiology and the Cardiovascular Patient includes the edited shows of the forty first Annual Postgraduate path in Anesthesiology, February 1996. The chapters replicate new information and ideas in the common framework of the pathophysiology and administration of surgical applicants with heart problems. The textbook will function a car to deliver a few of the most recent techniques in anesthesiology to those that didn't attend the convention. each one bankruptcy is a quick yet sharply concentrated glimpse of the present curiosity in anesthesia. This quantity, in addition to previous and destiny volumes, displays the speedy and carrying on with evolution of anesthesiology within the overdue 20th century.

Sample text

Rapid filling is estimated as the peak filling rate or the peak change in dimensions (length, diameter) when dimensions rather than volume are measured. While in experimental animals continuous measurement of ventricular volume can be obtained using three-dimensional sonomicrometry or conductance catheters, non-invasive methods including echocardiography and radionuclide angiography are most often used in humans. More frequently, even in experimental animals, ventricular dimensions rather than volume are measured (diameter, segment length or wall thickness).

These were reversed by calcium infusion (22). In experimental studies of the effects of graded concentrations of halothane, enflurane, isoflurane and sevoflurane, dose-dependent reductions in the peak lengthening rate were observed in both the apex and the base of the left ventricle (21). No differences between the four anesthetic agents were noted. However, marked differences 33 were noted between apex and base. The peak filling rate was much greater at the apex than the base. In addition, the effects of stepped increases in the concentration of the inhaled anesthetics were more significant at the apex than the base.

However, endothelin-l given as intracoronary infusion, increases cardiac stiffness at concentrations that have little effect on coronary blood flow. This effect is not simply an effect of the infusion of fluid in the coronary circulation, because it is prevented by the prior administration of the endothelin blocker BQ123 (unpublished observations). Therefore, it is possible that endothelins, known to be released during ischemia, may exert an effect on the remote myocardium. Is the finding of an increase in stiffness of the ischemic and remote nonischemic myocardium of any relevance to anesthesia?
