- Calf compartment pressures in the Lloyd-Davies position: a cause for concern?D Turnbull
Senior Lecturer in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield S10 2JF, UK
Anaesthesia 57:905-8. 2002..These two effects compromise blood flow to the lower limb in long surgical procedures where the lithotomy position is required. Intermittently lowering the legs and restoring blood flow may prevent compartment syndrome developing...
- Compartment syndrome associated with the Lloyd Davies position. Three case reports and review of the literatureD Turnbull
Department of Anaesthetic Sciences, K Floor, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield S10 2JF, UK
Anaesthesia 56:980-7. 2001..We review the pathophysiology of compartment syndrome and consider factors other than a decrease in arterial pressure that may predispose to compartment syndrome during adoption of the Lloyd Davies position...
- A randomised single blinded study of the administration of pre-warmed fluid vs active fluid warming on the incidence of peri-operative hypothermia in short surgical proceduresJ C Andrzejowski
Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK
Anaesthesia 65:942-5. 2010..Pre-warmed fluid, administered within 30 min of its removal from a warming cabinet, is as efficient at preventing peri-operative hypothermia as that delivered through an in-line warming system...
- Effect of prewarming on post-induction core temperature and the incidence of inadvertent perioperative hypothermia in patients undergoing general anaesthesiaJ Andrzejowski
Department of Anaesthesia, C Floor, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield S10 2JF, UK
Br J Anaesth 101:627-31. 2008..We tested the efficiency of a preoperative forced-air warming (FAW) device (Bair Paws) in preventing IPH...
- Comparison of the performance of four laryngoscopes in a high-fidelity simulator using normal and difficult airwayL Powell

- Reducing the risk of fatal and disabling hypoglycaemia: a comparison of arterial blood sampling systemsK A Brennan
Department of Anaesthesia, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, UK
Br J Anaesth 104:446-51. 2010..As the NPSA sought a solution, a bench model was constructed to compare the performance of three open and three closed arterial line systems in limiting sample contamination...
- Intra-abdominal pressure measurement: validation of intragastric pressure as a measure of intra-abdominal pressureD Turnbull
Academic Unit of Anaesthesia, Sheffield University, and Department of Anaesthesia, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, UK
Br J Anaesth 98:628-34. 2007..IVP is the preferred measure of IAP in critical care. We considered that IGP represents a practical alternative. The objective of this preliminary study was to observe the relationship between IGP and IAP...
- The influence of changes in end-tidal carbon dioxide upon the Bispectral IndexD Turnbull
Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Glossop Road, Sheffield, S10 5DA, UK
Anaesthesia 63:458-62. 2008..At the level of hypnosis involved in this study, changes in end-tidal carbon dioxide, within the range tested, do not result in changes in the Bispectral Index...
- Performance of breathing filters under wet conditions: a laboratory evaluationD Turnbull
University of Sheffield, Academic Anaesthetic Unit, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK
Br J Anaesth 94:675-82. 2005..Excess patient secretions occluding the HMEF have been responsible for previous case reports of airway obstruction. A previous study suggested that differences in HMEF design might contribute to filter obstruction under wet conditions...
