Point-of-care ultrasonography in Canadian anesthesiology residency programs: a national survey of program directors

ConclusionPoint-of-care ultrasonography training within Canadian anesthesiology residency programs is highly variable. Given the importance of POCUS abilities and their relevance to modern anesthesia practice, POCUS training and assessment within Canadian anesthesiology residency programs should be formalized.

ConclusionBasic insulation capabilities are well established in the Swedish pre‐hospital services. Specific wind and waterproof insulation materials, active warming devices, low‐reading thermometers and IV fluid heating systems are less common. We suggest the development and implementation of national guidelines on accidental hypothermia that include basic recommendations on equipment requirements.

We present a longitudinal study of cerebral metabolism using [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in a rat model of shockwave-induced traumatic brain injury (SW-TBI). Anesthetized rats received 5 or 10 shockwave pulses to the ri...

  Clarius Mobile Health, a Canadian firm, is a pioneering company specializing in portable solutions for ultrasound diagnostics. Since its debut, it has surprised and impressed us with its tiny portable ultrasounds. Clarius offers the only app-based, wireless ultrasound scanner that can be taken to the point of care even in the most rugged conditions. The multi-purpose Clarius C3 scanner comes with transducer clip-ons, transforming the convex scanner that can image heart, lungs, and deep structures, into a linear or virtual phased array scanner. Although these clip-ons are not meant to replace the dedicated Clar...

In August, (one month ago today)I had an appendectomy. There was very little drama involved, the doctors office visit led straight to a same day CT scan and an emergency review with the radiologist who informed me the appendix couldn't be seen but the colon was most definitely inflamed and I should go to the ER if it got worse. To the ER I went that night, to a hospital where the D Care is very good (had that going for it). They admitted me under observation, coursing enough pain medications through me to make me sick for the next 14 hours. The plan was to do another CT the next day. In observation, as I was trying not to ...

CONCLUSIONS: QST has been proved to be sufficiently stable and reliable, and valuable information has been obtained regarding somatosensory function in healthy volunteers, special populations and orofacial pain patients. However, as most of the studies were highly heterogeneous, the results are difficult to compare quantitatively. A standardized intraoral QST protocol is recommended and expected to help advance a mechanism-based assessment of neuropathies and other intraoral pain conditions.

Physical examination revealed a soft, non-tender, oval-shaped lump in this location. Computed tomography scanning indicated an anterolateral cystic lesion that was attached to the condyle of the mandible and to the accessory parotid gland. Differential diagnoses included ganglion cyst, synovial cyst of the TMJ, and accessory parotid gland...

A foreign body aspiration is a risky situation, common in pediatric emergency. The “gold standard” to rule out a foreign body or proceed to its extraction, is rigid bronchoscopy (RB) under general anesthesia. However, RB is an intrusive exam with possible complications. Depending on authors, RB in emergency is a procedure at risk of complications in 4–17% of cases. Advances in radiology allow CT-scanners of fast acquisition and high definition, which could be used as an alternative to RB.
