Using electrochemical concepts by means of chemists, quite those that regard themselves as "inorganic" coordination chemists, has gone through a truly quick development within the final 15-20 years. The strategies, as dassically utilized to inorganic species, had their origins in analytical chemistry, and the technique had assumed, until eventually the mid 60s, extra value than the chemiStry.

Twenty-three patients grew pathogens on quantitative culturing of endobronchial secretions obtained by broncho-alveolar lavage or protected specimen brush. Thirteen pat ients had similar micro-organisms in bronchial aspirates and blood cultures. and in one patient pneumonia was confirmed at au topsy. b Per itonitis was diagnosed peroperatively in all pat ients, two of them havi ng also positive blood cultu res. c Blood cultures were positive in patients with cat heter- or urosepsis and meningitis.

All patients had indwelling radial (arterial line kit, Argon, Athens, TX,USA) and balloon-tipped pulmonary artery catheters (Edwards Swan-Ganz model 97-120-7F; Baxter Healthcare, Irvine, CA,USA) and, if required, were mechanically ventilated in volume- or pressure-controlled modes (Servo 900C ventilator; Siemens Elema, Solna, Sweden) under continuous analgesic sedation with midazolam and fentanyl. m 2, and dopamine and/or norepinephrine to maintain mean arterial pressure> 65 mmHg. Following collection of blood and various culture material for microbiological analysis, all patients were given empirical broad-spectrum antibiotherapy which was later adjusted to culture results.
