Conclusion: Emergency SBE under general anesthesia achieves higher diagnosis and detection rates, and fewer adverse events under conscious sedation, when compared to nonemergency SBE, regardless of the route. For patients with overt bleeding, it is easier to find lesions by emergency SBE within 24 hours. PMID: 31534450 [PubMed]

Hi all, I did a quick search and wasn't able to find this previously posted, so I apologize if this is a repeated question. regarding topicalization and premedication for an awake fiberoptic intubation, I know there are dozens of ways to skin this cat. I'm at the point in my training where I've tried a few different methods with varying degrees of success, yet have not settled on any "best way" to do it. I'm just curious to see how those of you go about it, and if you have any tips/tricks... awake fiberoptic topicalization/premedication

I have been fortunate enough to be accepted to both these great schools. I enjoyed both interviews, but enjoyed my AZCOM one more. I think they are both great schools with good match lists and good board scores. I am interested in keeping my options open to some of those more competitive specialties and do not want to feel like the school I attend will not prepare me for boards in a way where I can be competitive for things like surgery, anesthesiology, emergency med etc, if that is the path...

Authors: Piazena H, Müller W, Pendl W, von Ah S, Cap VH, Hug PJ, Sidler X, Pluschke G, Vaupel P Abstract Purpose: The temporal and spatial formation of the temperature field and its changes during/upon water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA)-irradiation in porcine skin and subcutis were investigated in vivo in order to get a detailed physical basis for thermotherapy of superficial tumors and infections caused by thermosensitive microbial pathogens (e.g., Mycobacterium ulcerans causing Buruli ulcer). Methods: Local wIRA-hyperthermia was performed in 11 anesthetized piglets using 85.0 mW cm-2, 103.2 mW cm...

In this study, we hypothesized that preoperative pregabalin reduces inhaled isoflurane requirements. METHODS: We have investigated the effectiveness of preoperative oral pregabalin 150 mg in women undergoing elective open total abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia. A prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled study was conducted in a university hospital. The study included 50 women (18-60 yrs.), ASA I or II, admitted for abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia. Exclusion criteria were allergy to pregabalin; calcium channel blockers, antiepileptic drugs, antidepressant drugs, any analgesics, se...

Authors: Chang L, Luo Q, Chai Y, Shu H Abstract Accidental awareness during general anaesthesia may cause many intraoperative discomforts and bring further moderate to severe long-term symptoms including flashbacks, nightmares, hyperarousal or post-traumatic stress disorder. The incidence of awareness varied from 0.017% to 4% among studies. The relatively reliable incidence of intraoperative awareness with postoperative recall is 0.02%. The reason causing awareness was unclear. Insufficient anaesthetic dosing was thought as the principal cause. Even awareness was not comprehensively understood, some endeavors have ...
