Authors: Buraimoh MA, Nash A, Howard B, Yousaf I, Koh E, Banagan K, Gelb D, Schreibman D, Ludwig SC Abstract Background: Perioperative hypothermia is linked to multiple postoperative complications including increased surgical bleeding, surgical site infection, myocardial events, and increased length of hospital stay. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of forced-air warming blanket position, above the shoulders versus under the trunk/legs, on intraoperative core body temperature and perioperative complications in elective lumbar spine surgery. Methods: After IRB approval, patients were enrolle...

CONCLUSION: Reducing perioperative blood loss requires a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach. Although high-quality evidence exists in certain areas, the overall evidence base for reducing intraoperative blood loss remains limited. PMID: 31903592 [PubMed - in process]

This study proposes a multi-center RCT in order to compare outcomes of warmer hypothermic strategies during aortic hemiarch surgery on a composite endpoint of neurologic and acute kidney injury (AKI).Methods/designThis is a prospective multi-center, single-blind two-arm RCT comparing mild (32  °C) versus moderate (26 °C) hypothermic cardiac arrest in patients (n = 282) undergoing hemiarch surgery with antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP). The primary endpoint is a composite of neurological injury (incidence of transient ischemic attack and/or stroke) and Kidney Disease Improving Global Out...

Acute poisoning in children is a clinical emergency. Prompt and effective treatment is critical for life-threatening poisoning. Extracorporeal treatment (ECTR) is a practical option for enhancing the elimination of poisons. We conducted a retrospective observational study on 338 children with severe acute poisoning who received ECTR during hospitalization from January 2010 to December 2017. The poisonous substances, utilization of ECTR, adverse reactions to ECTR, and outcomes were recorded. The top 3 poisoning categories, in order of frequency, were found to be pesticides (57.99%), biotoxins (25.15%), and pharmaceuticals...

BACKGROUND In our outpatient post anaesthesia unit patients reported that they were feeling cold with or without shivering. Anaesthetic agents cause reduced thermoregulation, initially by redistribution of blood flow from core to periphery, later by negative balance between thermogenesis and heat loss. Even mild peri-operative hypothermia increases the risk of surgical wound infections, bleeding, impaired cardiac function, shivering, and decreases comfort. OBJECTIVE(S) We aimed to evaluate which of our current active warming measures, self-warming blanket or forced-air-warming blanket, were most effective in preventin...

We present the case of a 75-year-old man with repeated lower limb hematoma caused by consumptive coagulopathy from a type B chronic aortic dissection. His abdominal aorta was replaced with a Y-shaped graft 30  years prior to admission. As his previous aortic stent graft treatment failed, he underwent open surgical prosthetic graft replacement of the descending aorta under deep hypothermia. To reduce intra- and postoperative bleeding, we avoided cutting the ribs and intercostal arteries. The aneurysm was approached only through the 8th intercostal space; however, as the proximal descending aorta was inaccessible from t...

ConclusionsRAKT is feasible and safe only if performed by surgeons with appropriate background in robotic surgery and kidney transplantation after proper surgical training at experienced centres in the mid-term follow-up. Further studies need to confirm the long-term safety of RAKT.

tay T Abstract Massive pulmonary embolism is a well-known cause of sudden cardiac arrest in the adult population. Systemic fibrinolysis can be a life-saving option. Therapeutic hypothermia is highly recommended for nontraumatic sudden cardiac arrest victims to minimize neurological complications. However, there are limited data about the use of therapeutic hypothermia for sudden cardiac arrest victims also treated with systemic fibrinolysis. Concerns about hypothermia-related coagulopathy and a possible tendency to bleeding have limited the use of cooling therapy in such cases. Presently described is a case of sud...

Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia (IPH), where core body temperature is less than 36 °C or 96.8°F, occurs in 26-90% of patients undergoing elective surgery. This preventable anesthesia- and surgery-related complication affects patients’ outcome and is associated with increased risk for surgical site infections (SSIs), bleeding, blood transfusions, and decreased patient thermal c omfort.
