The pure effects of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome on cardiac autonomic functions: heart rate turbulence analysis
(Verduci Publisher, 2013)
OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate the pure effect of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) on cardiac autonomic function (CAF) using heart rate turbulence (HRT) parameters. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 64 patients with OSAS ...
Predictive value of total atrial conduction time measured with tissue doppler imaging for postoperative atrial fibrillation after coronary artery bypass surgery
Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) complicating coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) increases morbidity and stroke risk. Total atrial conduction time (PA-TDI duration) has been identified as an independent ...
The prolonged effect of pneumoperitoneum on cardiac autonomic functions during laparoscopic surgery; are we aware?
(Verduci Publisher, 2013)
BACKGROUND: The gynecological laparoscopic surgery requires pneumoperitoneum (PP) with CO2 gas insufflation. CO2 PP may influence cardiac automic function (CAF). This study was conducted to assess its significance and the ...
