Thoughts on the following case: Morbidly obese patient in ICU, thick neck+Covid, respiratory failure, high vent settings (20 PEEP, 70% FiO2). Called by ICU attending to exchange ETT because it becomes kinked when turning the patient prone, and randomly when turning the patient's head in certain directions when supine. Patient also with severe angioedema of the tongue, which is protruding several centimeters from the mouth, firm, immobile, making access to the oropharynx impossible. Patient...

Sinapic Acid Ameliorates Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, and Apoptosis in Acute Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiotoxicity via the NF-κB-Mediated Pathway. Biomed Res Int. 2020;2020:3921796 Authors: Bin Jardan YA, Ansari MA, Raish M, Alkharfy KM, Ahad A, Al-Jenoobi FI, Haq N, Khan MR, Ahmad A Abstract In the present study, we explored SA's activity against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity and revealed its underlying mechanisms. Male Wistar rats (weight, 190-210g; n = 6) were randomly divided into four groups: group I, normal control; group II, DOX 15 mg/kg via intraperitoneal (ip) route; group III, admi...

Conclusion: Current evidence precludes drawing a firm conclusion on the efficacy or superiority of LidoIV over traditional therapies for ED patients with renal colic. Evidence suggests LidoIV may be an effective non-opiate analgesic alliterative; however, it's efficacy may not exceed that of NSAIDs or opiates. Further study is needed to validate the potential improved efficacy of LidoIV plus metoclopramide. PMID: 32259122 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Methods: Eighty-eight patients undergoing THA were randomized to receive 0.33% ropivacaine (Group QLB, n = 44) or saline (Group Con, n = 44) for QL3 block. Spinal anesthesia was then performed. Pain intensity was assessed using the visual analog scale (0: no pain to 10: worst possible pain). The primary outcome was pain scores recorded at rest at 3, 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 h and on standing and walking at 24, 36, and 48 h postoperatively. Secondary outcomes were analgesic consumption, side effects, the 10-meter walking speed on day 6, and patient satisfaction after ...
