Improvment of survival in cystic fibrosis patients from 1962 to 1971

, : Improvment of survival in cystic fibrosis patients from 1962 to 1971. Helvetica Paediatrica Acta 30(2): 151-158

The survival rate of 42 patients with cystic fibrosis diagnosed during the five year period before institution of full prophylactic aerosol, mist tent and postural drainage therapy in 1967 was compared with that of 32 cases diagnosed in the five following years. The mean survival rate of the latter group was 81%, 81% and 73% at 1, 2 and 3 years respectivly, compared with 64%, 59% and 57% in the former group. The main difference was due to the significantly improved survival rate of cases diagnosed during the first year of life.

This study examined the course of EEG recovery in an animal model of hypoxic-ischemic injury. The model used periods of hypoxia, room air and asphyxia to induce cardiac arrest. One-week-old piglets (n = 16) were exposed to a period of hypoxia, roo...
