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?
Publication date: Available online 15 November 2018Source: Research in Veterinary ScienceAuthor(s): A. Small, J. Lea, D. Niemeyer, J. Hughes, D. McLean, J. McLean, J. RalphAbstractDTS: Diathermic Syncope® (DTS) is a novel system for rendering animals insensible prior to slaughter, utilizing microwave energy to induce a rise in temperature in the brain to a point at which the animal is expected to lose consciousness. During development and optimisation of the system, two trials were carried out utilizing non-anaesthetized adult cattle, to gather data on behavioural outcomes and EEG changes following energy application. ...
This study retrospectively investigated the efficacy of the ESP block in pain management after lumbar spinal surgery. Methods: Patients who underwent lumbar spinal surgery in 2017 were enrolled in the study. Those who underwent secondary surgery with local anesthesia other than the ESP block were excluded. The primary outcome was the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) pain score at various time points until the morning of postoperative day 2. The secondary outcomes were the amount of intravenous fentanyl administered during the first 24 hours following the surgery and the number of patients with complaints of complications s...
THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF REGIONAL ANESTHESIA (ASRA) and Pain Medicine recently published updated guidance on the management of local anesthetic systemic toxicity (LAST).1,2 Organ systems that are primarily disrupted by toxic doses of local anesthetics include the cardiovascular system and central nervous system (CNS). Mild prodromal symptoms may progress to major complications such as seizures, cardiac arrest, or death. Treatment is multifactorial and involves the use of 20% lipid emulsion therapy as the antidote.

CONCLUSIONS: ongoing sedation program monitoring in endoscopy allows the control of different quality dimensions and the implementation of steps for process improvement. PMID: 30424678 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractMucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of diseases characterized by abnormal accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Although there are differences among the various disease types, the osteoarticular system is always involved. The aim of the present study was to establish a framework for MPS-related orthopaedic manifestations and for their treatment. The authors, affiliated to three different Italian Orthopaedic Centres, report data taken from the literature reviewed in light of their accumulated professional experience. Bone alterations make up what is known as dysostosis multiplex, involving the trunk and lim...
ConclusionsPatients with mucopolysaccharidosis are at high risk for anesthesia-related complications and require a high level of attention. However, a multidisciplinary approach, combined with expertise in the use of new techniques and new devices for airway management, makes anesthesiological management safer. Further research with prospective studies would be useful.
ConclusionManipulation under general anaesthesia is a well-recognised treatment for adhesive capsulitis. We report that targeted ultrasound-guided injection of the rotator interval and manipulation of the shoulder under local anaesthetic blockade result in good outcomes in reducing shoulder pain and symptoms of adhesive capsulitis with low recurrence and complication rates.
