Total hip replacement was carried out on 22 patients under general anaesthesia. Of these, 10 were pretreated with methylprednisolone (30 mg/kg); 1 of these developed the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and had ...
Anaesthesia and the diabetic patient
Since it is estimated that 1 out of every 2 diabetic patients will require surgery at some point in his lifetime, it is imperative that the anaesthetist should understand the disease process as well as the anaesthetic ...
