Authors: Johnson T, Kale EB, Husain AM Abstract Motor evoked potentials (MEPs) are commonly used during neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring. Anesthetic, homeostatic, surgical, and technical factors can cause a change in MEPs. The authors describe a case in which a bolus of magnesium sulfate resulted in a loss of amplitude of MEPs. Responses returned to near baseline about 20 minutes later. The patient did not have any new postoperative deficits. When MEP changes occur, in addition to evaluating other causes, magnesium sulfate administration should be considered. PMID: 29923809 [PubMed]

This study evaluated the protective effect of exogenous melatonin in rats and their offspring on the genotoxic response induced by chronic alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Twenty-five pregnant rats were divided into the following groups: NC - Negative control; ET - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day); ET+10 M - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day) and melatonin (10 mg/kg/day); ET+15 M - Rats receiving ethanol (3 g/kg/day) and melatonin (15 mg/kg/day); PC - Positive control (40 mg/kg cyclophosphamide). The dams and 10 pups (five males and five females) from each group were anesthetized to collect blood a...

Conclusion: Postoperative pain up to 48 hours in both Maylard and Pfannenstiel group showed similar VAS but after 48 hours; the Maylard group showed less pain. Even though the surgical wound length in Maylard group was longer than Pfannenstiel group, numbers of cases with VAS>4 within 24 hours in Maylard were less than in Pfannenstiel group. Postoperative pain up to 48 hours in both Maylard and Pfannenstiel group showed similar VAS but after 48 hours; the Maylard group showed less pain. Even though the surgical wound length in Maylard group was longer than Pfannenstiel group, numbers of cases with VAS>4 within 24 hou...

Material and Method: A retrospective cohort case-controlled study was done at Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand. Two thousand six hundred anesthetic records from between July 2013 and January 2014 were retrieved. Inclusion criteria were complete records of patients older than 18 years and elective surgery under general anesthesia longer than 30 minutes using endotracheal intubation (ETT) or...

Authors: Ali JM, Miles LF, Abu-Omar Y, Galhardo C, Falter F Abstract Despite the ubiquitous use of cardioplegia in cardiac surgery, there is a lack of agreement on various aspects of cardioplegia practice. To discover current cardioplegia practices throughout the world, we undertook a global survey to document contemporary cardiopulmonary bypass practices. A 16-question, Internet-based survey was distributed by regional specialist societies, targeting adult cardiac anesthesiologists. Ten questions concerned caseload and cardioplegia practices, the remaining questions examined anticoagulation and pump-priming practi...
