Conclusion Use of nitrous-oxide during laparoscopy increases cuff pressure resulting in increased incidence of postoperative sore throat. Cuff pressure should be monitored routinely during laparoscopy with nitrous-oxide anesthesia.
A randomized trial of three lubrication strategies on sore throat after insertion of the LMA® Classic™ supraglottic airway. Can J Anaesth. 2018 Apr 12;: Authors: McKay WPS, Maslany J, Schubert EP PMID: 29651706 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractPurposeThe self-pressurized air-Q ® (air-Q SP) intubating laryngeal airway is a relatively new supraglottic airway (SGA) device. The intracuff pressure of air-Q dynamically equilibrates with the airway pressure and adjusts to the patient’s pharyngeal and periglottic anatomy, potentially providing improved airway fit and seal. The aim of this prospective randomized study was to compare the clinical performance of air-Q to the LMA® Classic™ SGA.MethodsAdult patients requiring general anesthesia for elective surgery were prospectively enrolled and randomly assigned to either air-Q SP or the LMA Cla...
Conclusions: Both Proseal LMA and LTS were acceptable alternatives for airway management in elective surgeries with controlled ventilation, but the quality of ventilation was found to be significantly better with Proseal LMA (in terms of higher seal pressure, lesser peak pressure, lesser insertion time, and lesser complications).
Fracture of nasal bone is among the most common facial bone fractures. Reduction of nasal bone fracture is able to be performed under local or general anesthesia. The aim of this study is to compare monitored anesthetic care (MAC) and general anesthesia (GA) based on intraoperative vital signs, and the adverse effects after closed reduction of nasal bone fractures. The authors performed a retrospective study of 45 patients who underwent a closed reduction of nasal bone fracture between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. Patients are divided into an MAC group (n = 17) or GA group (n = 28). A sore throat, postop...
Conclusions: There are fewer hemodynamic responses and adverse events in the FOB group than in the DLS group; therefore, FOB can be safely used for NTI in children undergoing outpatient dental surgery, and FOB may be more successful than DLS for NTI.
Conclusion Use of nitrous-oxide during laparoscopy increases cuff pressure resulting in increased incidence of postoperative sore throat. Cuff pressure should be monitored routinely during laparoscopy with nitrous-oxide anaesthesia.
We read with great interest the article of Huppelschoten et al.  in a recent issue of the journal. The authors' evaluated four randomized trials that compared general anesthesia to local anesthesia with conscious sedation for laparoscopic sterilization and concluded that local anesthesia with conscious sedation demonstrated better results when compared to general anesthesia in respect of recovery times, patients' complaints of a sore throat, patients' recovery and satisfaction. The authors should be congratulated for performing a well-designed study in an important topic (e.g.
In this study, we searched MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane Library and the Web of Science for randomised controlled trials comparing videolaryngoscopy with Macintosh laryngoscopy for double‐lumen tube intubation. We found that videolaryngoscopy provided a higher success rate at first attempt for double‐lumen tube intubation, with an odds ratio (95%CI) of 2.77 (1.92–4.00) (12 studies, 1215 patients, moderate‐quality evidence, p
