Pediatric Admissions After Dental Care Under General Anesthesia: A Retrospective Study at a Tertiary Care Center
In conclusion, the collateral pathway did not appear to be only for temporary use to compensate for drainage from the edematous limb but appears more stable as a component of a compensating lymphatic system. These new dilated vessels, although functional at this point, may still be susceptible to disturbance by further alteration to the lymph vessels. PMID: 30234249 [PubMed]
The procedure, which can be carried out without an anaesthetic, uses a machine that directs blasts of ultrasound energy at the kidneys. The waves break up troublesome crystals which are passed through urine.
CONCLUSIONS: No definitive conclusion can be drawn about the type of anesthetic used and its relation to occurrence of POCD. However, the information presented is crucial, which can help to improve anesthetic usage and patient safety. PMID: 30236581 [PubMed - in process]
We report a case of an 85-year-old chronic smoker with controlled diabetes mellitus who needed an emergency laparotomy for a perforated gastric ulcer. Unfortunately, there was a shortage of ICU backup. With the successful conduct of an early surgery using combined general and regional anesthesia, the use of sugammadex (Bridion, Merck Sharp &Dohme Corp, Oss, the Netherlands) as a reversal agent, a skilled surgeon, and good postanesthesia care, the patient did not require ICU admission. He recovered fast and was discharged home 4 days after surgery. This case study aims to contribute to the literature on experience ...
CONCLUSIONS: Study results can be used as a basis to provide patients with clarifications about surgeries during the presurgery period and as a means of decreasing their anxiety about surgery and anesthesia. PMID: 30236573 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: The use of a simple rehydration protocol reduced the incidence of PONV in patients with prolonged fasting times. Time and personnel constraints were identified as barriers that prevented full compliance with the protocol. PMID: 30236569 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: This project demonstrated that the use of a focused tool to identify risk factors for ED could significantly increase actual identification rates for at-risk patients in the clinical setting. PMID: 30236567 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract Malignant hyperthermia is an uncommon, but potentially lethal condition that may be encountered during the perioperative period. There is wide variability in the manner in which malignant hyperthermia may manifest. For a patient to survive a malignant hyperthermia crisis, prompt recognition and treatment is of paramount importance. Perioperative nurses play a pivotal role in the successful management of malignant hyperthermia. The fictitious case study presented in this paper describes the identification, presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of a general anesthesia patient with fulminant malignant...
ConclusionWe thus conclude that myocardial injury can be a pressing need for the design of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for heat stroke. In particular, our data indicate that CG protects against heat stroke in rats by mitigating myocardial injury.
ConclusionThe results obtained in this study show that using customized surgical guides and plates in performing mentoplasty is an advantage over conventional techniques as they provide greater accuracy and safety in the surgery and more predictable results. This simplifies the procedure.
