High impact information on Gastric Lavage

  • A treatment approach is proposed including repeated gastric lavage, detection of an insoluble tablet coagulum, electrolyte monitoring, avoidance of cathartics, and treatment of seizures with diazepam and phenytoin [7].
  • Nevertheless, CNS infection developed in gentamicin-treated animals infected intraperitoneally or by gastric lavage, suggesting that intracellular bacteria could be responsible for neuroinvasion [8].
  • The treatment of paracetamol intoxication should include gastric lavage, which has been shown to be of value for up to 6 hours after ingestion of a paracetamol overdose [9].
  • The rats were randomized to receive either simvastatin (n = 17) or placebo (n = 17) by gastric lavage daily starting the day before surgery [10].
  • INTERVENTIONS: Prevention of absorption (gastric lavage), mechanical ventilation, fluids, alkalinization, catecholamines, drugs (physostigmine, neostigmine), direct current cardioversion/defibrillation, and transient pacemaker (atrial stimulation) [11].

Gene context of Gastric Lavage

  • Electromechanical dissociation (EMD) occurred in a 20-year-old woman 48 hours after an overdose of atenolol, despite intensive treatment of the beta-blocker poisoning (gastric lavage, charcoal, glucagon, epinephrine, atropine, correction of electrolyte abnormalities, administration of fluids, cardiac pacing, and mechanical ventilation) [26].
  • In 60 cases of acute gastrointestinal bleeding, adequate gastric lavage was completed in 14.1 +/- 1.3 min, using an average of 7.5 +/- 0.69 liters; the volume of fluid recovered was 103.9 +/- 0.58% of the volume infused [27].
  • Her initial rectal temperature was 16.2 degrees C. Active external and core warming modalities, including warm blanket, radiant heat lamp, warm humidified air, heated gastric lavage, and heated bladder lavage, were used to rewarm the infant [28].
  • The patient presented in deep coma with a temperature above 42 C. Following rapid assessment, the patient was intubated, rehydration was begun, and he was externally cooled with ice bags and internally cooled with ice water gastric lavage [29].
  • There was no effect of sham gastric lavage on AVP [30].
