Does obesity increase the risk of difficult tracheal intubation and laryngoscopy?BMC Anesthesiology
(University of Miami Miller School of Medicine) The findings of a pre-clinical pilot study testing a of combining CBD (a cannabinoid derivative of hemp) with an NMDA antagonist (an anesthetic used in animals and humans) for the treatment of traumatic brain injury and concussion. were recently released, and show that the combination therapy improved the cognitive functions of animals, compared with those treated with a single vehicle. In addition, there were no adverse effects from either the combination therapy or the individual components.

Rajkumar Subramanian, Pallavi Mishra, Rajeshwari Subramaniam, Sumit BansalJournal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology 2018 34(2):148-154 The ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure is a rare form of perinatal resuscitation. It is basically a bridge therapy between partial delivery of the child and stabilization of its cardiorespiratory functions. This procedure has multiple anesthetic challenges including maternal anesthesia, maintenance of uteroplacental flow, tocolysis till the neonate is stabilized, management of postpartum hemorrhage, fetal, and neonatal anesthesia. This review also describes a case of ce...
Keith Gray, Sanjib D Adhikary, Piotr JanickiJournal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology 2018 34(2):155-160 The field of pharmacogenomics seeks to understand how an individual's unique gene sequence can affect their response to certain drugs. It is particularly relevant in anesthesia when the interindividual response to pain medication is essential. Codeine and tramadol are prodrugs metabolized by CYP2D6, polymorphisms of which can cause dangerous or even fatal levels of their metabolites, or decrease the level of metabolites to decrease their analgesic effect. Many other opioids are metabolized by CYP2D6 or CYP3A...
Ajmer Singh, Yatin MehtaJournal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology 2018 34(2):161-165 Heart failure (HF) is a complex clinical syndrome that results from any structural or functional impairment of ventricular filling or ejection of blood. American College of Cardiology Foundation / American Heart Association 2013 guidelines have classified HF into two categories: (i) HF with reduced (≤40%) ejection fraction (HFrEF) or systolic HF, and (ii) HF with preserved (≥50%) ejection fraction (HFpEF) or diastolic HF. Risk factors for HFpEF include age more than 70 years, female gender, hypertension, wide pu...
Conclusions: Right TPVB with sedation is an effective and safe anesthetic technique for the management of PRFA procedure of hepatic tumors. It is more effective than local anesthesia with sedation in relieving pain during PRFA procedure of hepatic tumors.
