Pulmonary artery pressure monitoring in persistent fetal circulation (PFC)

Journal of Pediatric Surgery
J C GermanD R Sperling

Abstract

The use of the Swan-Ganz catheter to monitor pulmonary artery pressure in adults with cardiopulmonary failure has become commonplace. Our meager experience was with four neonates diagnosed as having persistent fetal circulation monitored by the use of this PA catheter. Tolazoline was infused directly into the pulmonary circulation via the catheter. Pulmonary artery pressure was temporarily reduced by tolazoline administration, with a marked increase in PaO2. More experience is required to define the role of the Swan-Ganz catheter in neonatal physiologic monitoring.

COVID-19

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
