  • "Assessing trauma patient risk using non-invasive indicators" 

    Lewis, Trisha; Waszgis, Michaela; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Sanders, Rachel; Matlack, Angela; Heck, Amber; Buising, Charisse; Henderson, LaRhee; Hopkins, James; Wall, Piper (2006-06-07)
    Non-invasive indicators of a trauma patient's risk of cardiovascular collapse are needed. Exhaled alveolar air (end-tidal air) and skin surface are available non-invasively and have physiologic reasons to relate to trauma ...
  • "Chest skin and sublingual PCO2 during hemorrhage" 

    Hukee, Luke; Paul, Butler; Singh, Sid; Prakash, Shawn; Lewis, Trisha; Waszgis, Michaela; Heck, Amber; Bellani, Denisa; Sanders, Rachel; Matlack, Angela; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Hopkins, James; Henderson, LaRhee; Smoot, Dustin; Buising, Charisse; Wall, Piper (2006-06-05)
    Base deficit is an indicator for degree of metablic insult/oxygen debt from hemorrhage and is moratlity risk related in trauma patients. We investigated the use of less invasively available skin and sublingual partial ...
  • "Ion and albumin influence on measurement of metabolic debt" 

    Heck, Amber; Mueller, Dana; Woodard, Meredith; Lewis, Trisha; Waszgis, Michaela; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Sanders, Rachel; Matlack, Angela; Buising, Charisse; Henderson, LaRhee; Hopkins, James; Devey, Jennifer; Smoot, Dustin; Wall, Piper (2006-06-07)
    Alterations in Na+, Cl-, and albumin, if present and not accounted for, may lead one to false conclusions concerning perfusion status as indicated by base excess (BEtotal).
  • "Issues with hypotensive stabilization following hemorrhage" 

    Matlack, Angela; Byers, Melissa; Scaletta, Amber; Lewis, Trisha; Waszgis, Michaela; Heck, Amber; Henderson, LaRhee; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Sanders, Rachel; Hopkins, James; Buising, Charisse; Meinders, Kandis; Wall, Piper (2006-06-07)
    We are investigating pharmacologic interruption of angiotensin II production (enalaprilat) combined with either 7.8% hypertonic saline dextran (HSD) or a hemoglobin based oxygen carrier (HBOC, Oxyglobin) as methods to ...
  • "Sweat may impair skin carbon dioxide (PCO2) dependent discrimination in trauma patients" 

    Waszgis, Michaela; Lewis, Trisha; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Sanders, Rachel; Matlack, Angela; Heck, Amber; Buising, Charisse; Henderson, LaRhee; Hopkins, James; Wall, Piper (2006-06-05)
    Assessing internal bleeding from trauma is difficult. Non-invasive discriminationrs between the physiologic changes of exercise (or excitement) and injury could be useful, especially at locations with limited access to ...
