Perioperative Pulmonary Medication Management.
CONCLUSION: Patients with chronic pulmonary conditions have risk of perioperative complications. Their pulmonary treatment regimens should be maintained in the perioperative period to reduce the risk of such complications. PMID: 28925861 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThe findings suggest that addressing self-management related domains, in addition to self-efficacy, dyspnea, and comorbidities, may be of importance for enhancement of HRQoL in persons with COPD.
The use of a shunt during carotid surgery is controversial. Good results have been found in the literature both with routine use of a shunt and with no shunt during general anesthesia. Other studies report similar results with selective shunting with the support of cerebral monitors. Different experiences are found in the literature with transcranial Doppler (TCD), electroencephalography (EEG), stump pressure (SP), and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP). To the best of our knowledge, there are no controlled studies to document the relative efficacy of these techniques.
This study was carried out at Biocor Instituto, Anesthesiology, Nova Lima, MG, Brazil.
The objective of this study was to determine whether performing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) under locoregional anesthesia reduces the risk of perioperative complications as well as mortality compared with general anesthesia and to investigate an optimal anesthetic technique generally accepted by patients and surgeons for the vascular anesthetists.
This study was designed to investigate whether angiogenesis factors could serve as noninvasive markers for the diagnosis of PH in the COPD patient and which could serve as therapeutic targets.
What factors predict patient satisfaction with their anesthesiologist and the anesthesia experience? Are some contributing factors beyond the clinician's control?Anesthesia &Analgesia
ConclusionAngioedema is a potentially fatal condition when it affects the airway, and should be recognized by anesthesiologists and physicians working in the emergency departments.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosO angioedema é uma condição potencialmente fatal que pode surgir em qualquer momento no perioperatório. Pode decorrer da liberação de histamina, em uma reação de hipersensibilidade a drogas, ou ser desencadeado pela bradicinina, em reações não alérgicas, de etiologia hereditária ou adquirida. O objetivo desserelato é de...
ConclusionCostoclavicular brachial plexus block is a good alternative for upper limb anesthesia distal to the elbow, being a safe and effective option for patients who are obese or have other limitations to the use of other upper limb blocking techniques.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosO bloqueio de plexo braquial via costoclavicular é uma anestesia realizada por via infraclavicular já descrita na literatura como uma via segura e efetiva para anestesia de membro superior distal ao cotovelo. O relato a seguir trata de um paciente em que as técnicas tradicionais para bloqueio de plexo apresentavam dificul...

This article provides a description and discussion of the key equipment used by the British Defence Medical Services (DMS) to provide anaesthesia and critical care in the field. There is a need to balance equipment clinical capability against its suitability for use in the field. By necessity, military anaesthesia and critical care equipment should be robust, portable, compact, easy to use, easy to maintain and clean, and require minimal consumables.
