Validation of intracardiac shunt using thoracic bioimpedance and inert gas rebreathing in adults before and after percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect in a cardiology research unit: study protocol.

Validation of intracardiac shunt using thoracic bioimpedance and inert gas rebreathing in adults before and after percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect in a cardiology research unit: study protocol.

Intrathoracic shunt quantification is a main issue for applicable scientific administration of coronary heart and pulmonary illnesses. Intracardiac shunts quantified by pulmonary to systemic output ratio (Qp/Qs) are typically assessed by Doppler echocardiography, MRI or catheterisation. Recently, some authors have urged the concomitant use of thoracic bioimpedance (TB) and inert gas rebreathing (IGR) methods for shunt quantification. The objective …

Building a collaborative culture in cardiothoracic operating rooms: pre and postintervention study protocol for evaluation of the implementation of teamSTEPPS training and the impact on perceived psychological safety.

Building a collaborative culture in cardiothoracic operating rooms: pre and postintervention study protocol for evaluation of the implementation of teamSTEPPS training and the impact on perceived psychological safety.

BACKGROUNDThe significance of efficient communication, a key part of teamwork, is nicely recognised in the healthcare setting. Establishing a culture that encourages and empowers crew members to talk overtly in the cardiothoracic (CT) operating room (OR) is important to enhance affected person security in this high-risk surroundings.UNASSIGNEDThis study will happen at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, an instructional hospital …

The top 100 manuscripts in emergency cardiac surgery. Potential role in cardiothoracic training. A bibliometric analysis.

The top 100 manuscripts in emergency cardiac surgery. Potential role in cardiothoracic training. A bibliometric analysis.

Emergency Cardiac Surgery (ECS) is a element of cardiothoracic coaching. Citations are thought-about to symbolize a papers affect. Bibliometric analyses permit us to establish essentially the most influential work, and future analysis. We purpose to spotlight the important thing analysis themes inside ECS and decide their potential impression on cardiothoracic coaching. Thomas Reuters Web of Science was …
