Research not in area of desired specialty?
Hello all! So I was given a wonderful opportunity to continue working in the radiation oncology field during my first Year, however, I have no desire to go into that field of medicine for practice. The research itself is just extremely interesting and has been since I started in undergrad. As of right now I am leaning towards anesthesiology and need advice.. do residencies view non-field specific reasesrch as a bad thing? I really hope to go into academic medicine as well and continue to... Research not in area of desired specialty?
Conclusions Magnetic seizure therapy seizures have less robust electrophysiological expression than ECS, and these differences are largest in the alpha and beta bands. The relevance of these differences in higher frequency bands to clinical outcomes deserves further exploration. Significance Contrasting EEG in ECS and MST may lead to insights on the physiological underpinnings of seizure-induced amnesia and to finding ways to reduce cognitive side effects.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that acetaminophen reduces the risk and intensity of persistent incisional pain. However, there are other mechanisms by which acetaminophen might reduce persistent pain. KEY WORDS: Anesthesia, acetaminophen, Persistent surgical pain, Postoperative acute pain.

CONCLUSION: Since cardiac tamponade is generally not suspected as a cause of hemodynamic instability after a lung lobectomy, as it was in this case, a misdiagnosis of the patient's condition may have led to improper management resulting in death. As anesthesiologists are often involved in the initial resuscitation of morbid patients in Post-Anesthesia Care Units, their acquaintance with various postoperative complications and competence in echocardiography for assessing cardiac problems may contribute to patient survival.

How do practicing anesthesiologists feel regarding the use of depth of hypnosis monitors in children? Are they reliable, and when and why should they be used?BMC Anesthesiology
(American Society of Anesthesiologists) Contrary to what some studies may suggest, the local anesthetic drug, liposomal bupivacaine, did not reduce in-hospital opioid prescriptions or opioid-related complications in patients who received the drug during total knee replacement surgery as part of a multimodal approach to manage postsurgical pain, finds a new study published in the Online First edition of Anesthesiology, the peer-reviewed medical journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA).
(World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists) This month the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) launched an update of the International Standards For A Safe Practice of Anaesthesia, co-published with World Health Organization (WHO) for the first time as an official WHO guideline. The standards are recommended for anaesthesia professionals throughout the world and are intended to provide guidance to anaesthesia professionals, their professional societies, hospital and facility administrators, and governments for improving and maintaining quality and safety in anaesthesia.
Publication date: Available online 10 May 2018 Source:Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine Author(s): Michael Charlesworth, Andrew Knowles An understanding of the core cardiovascular physiological principles is fundamental to delivering clinical care to patients. In order to successfully deliver oxygen and other nutrients to end organs whist eliminating waste products, cardiac output is manipulated through the control of heart rate, blood pressure, stroke volume, preload, afterload and contractility. Though controlled through intrinsic physiological mechanisms in health, the delivery of fluids, drugs, external/electr...
Publication date: Available online 10 May 2018 Source:Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine Author(s): Emrys Kirkman Depolarization of cardiac muscle fibres spreads from fibre to fibre throughout the myocardium. In a single fibre, contraction starts just after depolarization and lasts until just after repolarization is complete. The atria contract, completing the filling of the ventricles and thus enhancing their action. In the absence of effective atrial contraction (e.g. atrial fibrillation) cardiac output is decreased on average by 15%. During diastole, when cardiac muscle is relaxed, blood returns to the heart and...
