Items 1 to 7 measure neurocognitive functions and items 8 to 15 measure social cognitive function; for this study, each set of factors was assessed separately to compare neurocognitive deficit
(GEOPTE 1-7, range 1-35) and social cognitive impairment (GEOPTE 8-15, range 1-40).
No deaths occurred, but two cases had sequelae of neurocognitive deficit
or hearing loss, Dr.
Part of the association of neurocognitive deficit
with anesthesia may be due to the innate differences between children requiring surgery and diagnostic procedures and those not requiring them.
in schizophrenia: A quantitative review of the evidence.
People with mild neurocognitive deficit
feel some mild negative effects on at least two types of everyday functioning.
Amnesia, according to Lovell and colleagues (12), (13), is most predictive of a prolonged neurocognitive deficit
The greater the reduction in reserve, the more likely that an impairment threshold will be crossed producing an observable neurocognitive deficit
In contrast, among the veterans who did not have a neurocognitive deficit
, only 1 of 11 veterans (9%) with PTSD had impaired sleep.
Included will be summary information on recent findings that demonstrate neuroprotective effects of DX-88 on brain ischemia and reperfusion injury in an animal study, indicating the potential for DX-88 in the treatment or prevention of neurocognitive deficit
during on-pump open heart surgery (CABG).

While they have been performed successfully for many years, traditional "on-pump" procedures can be associated with potential risk factors including stroke, post-operative bleeding, heart muscle damage, renal failure and neurocognitive deficit
The patient benefits of undergoing beating heart rather than stopped heart bypass surgery have been increasingly well documented and can include less blood loss, less heart muscle damage and potentially a lower incidence of neurocognitive deficit
following the procedure.
