Head to toe ultrasound: Current opinion on its role in hemodynamic instability, hypoxemia, oligoanuria and the patient with altered neurological status

Conclusion Further studies incorporating head-to-toe bedside ultrasound by trained clinicians will need to be validated but are likely to demonstrate the significant advantages of incorporating bedside ultrasound in the practice of anesthesiology and critical care.

The ability to obtain peripheral intravenous (IV) access, and in a timely manner, is arguably one of the most important skill sets to be mastered by health care professionals. While skill and experience play a role in successful and timely vascular access, numerous pati...

Conclusion: In newborns with large and persistent unesthetic cephalohematoma, puncture under local anesthesia with oral sucrose can be safely proposed between day 15 and day 30 after birth.What is Known:•Infant cephalohematoma is a frequent pathology of newborns, consisting of a traumatic subperiosteal hematoma of the skull. Most cephalohematomas are small and require no treatment because they spontaneously disappear within the first month.•Large and non-resorptive cephalohematomas may have significant esthetic and functional consequences.What is New:•Early puncture under local anesthesia is a safe, effectiv...

ConclusionThis is one of a very few studies comparing a large cohort of successful instrumental births with unsuccessful attempts at an instrumental birth. The rate of failure has been difficult to reduce, and the analysis shows that many of the factors associated with failure are not modifiable in labour. We should consider studies with use of ultrasound assessment before application or consideration of instruments to facilitate birth. This will allow us to objectively come up with an algorithm to predict success or failure and consider if it is suitable to attempt an instrumental birth. Our data can be used to counsel wo...

ConclusionsSepsis shares clinical symptoms that mimic malignant hyperthermia. While sepsis rapidly progresses to secondary injuries, malignant hyperthermia is life threatening. Providing ideal care requires good clinical judgment and a high level of suspicion where timely and appropriate care such as early administration of dantrolene and consultation of malignant hyperthermia association hotline for added assistance can influence positive outcomes.ResumoJustificativaA sepse é uma disfunção orgânica fatal com características clínicas inespecíficas que podem imitar outras cond...

CONCLUSION: Pain relief during SWL operations is still a challenging issue for many clinicians. Our study demonstrates that, among many other anesthetic/analgesic agents and techniques described, unilateral US guided TAP block and diclofenac combination is a feasible option for pain relief during SWL procedures.
