Modeling intra-abdominal volume and respiratory driving pressure during pneumoperitoneum insufflation-a patient-level data meta-analysis.

During pneumoperitoneum, intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) is usually kept at 12-14 mmHg. There is no clinical benefit in IAP increments if they do not increase intra-abdominal volume IAV. We aimed to estimate IAV (ΔIAV) and respiratory driving pressure changes (ΔPRS) in relation to changes in IAP (ΔIAP). We carried out a patient-level meta-analysis of 204 adult patients with available data on IAV and ΔPRS during pneumoperitoneum from three trials assessing the effect of IAP on postoperative recovery and airway pressure during laparoscopic surgery under general anesthesia. The primary endpoint was ΔIAV, and the secondary endpoint was ΔPRS. The endpoints' response to ΔIAP was modeled using mixed multivariable Bayesian regression to estimate which mathematical function best fitted it. IAP values on the pressure-volume (PV) curve where the endpoint rate of change according to IAP decreased were identified. Abdomino-thoracic transmission (ATT) rate, that is, the rate ΔPRS change to ΔIAP was also estimated. The best-fitting function was sigmoid logistic and linear for IAV and ΔPRS response, respectively. Increments in IAV reached a plateau at 6.0 [95%CI 5.9-6.2] L. ΔIAV for each ΔIAP decreased at IAP ranging from 9.8 [95%CI 9.7-9.9] to...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
