This study investigated the metabolic, hemodynamic, and inflammatory effects of sevoflurane pre- and postconditioning for short periods in the rescue of liver ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury using a rat model. Materials and Methods: Twenty Wistar rats were divided into four groups: sham group, control ischemia group (partial warm liver ischemia for 45 min followed by 4 h of reperfusion), SPC group (administration of sevoflurane 2.5% for 15 min with 5 min of washout before liver IR), and SPPoC group (administration of sevoflurane 2.5% for 15 min before ischemia and 20 min durin...

Although generally safe, anaesthesia in paediatric radiation therapy (RT) is costly and cumbersome. At our institution, a multi-faceted approach to reduce anaesthesia utilization is in place as standard-of-care treatment. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of our approach by measuring general anaesthesia (GA) rates across all age categories and to compare with published GA rates in the literature.

This study enrolled 120 children. The m-YPAS was administered to 120 children who were recorded on video. The State- Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC) was used for only 30 of 120 children. The videotapes were evaluated by two experienced observers [an anesthesiologist, ObA(an), and a psychologist, ObB(ps)]. The interrater reliability, concurrent validity, sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values were analyzed. Results: The mean age of the children was 7.8 ± 2.2 years. The weighted kappa values of the m-YPAS between observers were in substantial agreement (κw = 0.74&n...

Abstract Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols represent patient-centered, evidence-based, multidisciplinary care of the surgical patient. Although these patterns have been validated in numerous surgical specialities, ERAS has not been widely described for patients undergoing hip fracture (HFx) repair. As part of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery, we have conducted a full evidence review of interventions that form the basis of the anesthesia components of the ERAS HFx pathway. A literature search was performed for each protocol compone...

CONCLUSIONS: Normalization of the aPTT and PT in a mixing study was associated with low clotting factor activity. The ICA may be helpful in predicting the presence of a lupus anticoagulant. As anesthesiologists take ownership of the perioperative surgical home, we need to understand the clinical implications of the results of mixing studies. PMID: 31094773 [PubMed - in process]
