Authors: Derycke L, Mallios A Abstract OBJECTIVE: To report our technique for percutaneous ultrasound-guided retrieval of accidentally transected arterial lines. CASES DESCRIPTION: Two patients are reported herein; in both of these patients, a part of the 20-gauge catheter inserted for invasive monitoring of their blood pressure in the intensive care unit was accidentally transected with part of the catheter remaining in the radial artery. Both patients were initially asymptomatic; therefore, a minimally invasive technique was sought to remove the catheters without inducing significant risk. Under local anesthe...

CONCLUSIONS: This is the first well powered study comparing the effect of low tidal volume ventilation versus high tidal volume ventilation during surgery on the incidence of postoperative respiratory complications in adult patients receiving moderate levels of PEEP.

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.

This study is divided into two parts; in phase A baseline TWA data from 40 patients will be collected prospectively. A device (HemoSphere) with HPI software will be connected but fully covered. Phase B is designed as a single-center, randomized controlled trial were 60 patients will be randomized with computer-generated blocks of four, six or eight, with an allocation ratio of 1:1. In the intervention arm the HemoSphere with HPI will be used to guide treatment; in the control arm the HemoSphere with HPI software will be connected but fully covered. The primary outcome is the TWA in hypotension during surgery.DiscussionThe ...

Authors: Chedid MF, Zahler S, Chedid AD, Leipnitz I, Prediger JE, Giampaoli AZD, Lopes BB, Kruel CRP, Grezzana-Filho TJM Abstract Shunts between the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) and the right renal vein (RRV) are very rare. Here, we describe and depict the rare case of a liver transplant (LT) in the setting of shunt between SMV and RRV. A 67-year-old white man presenting with Child C cirrhosis secondary to hemochromatosis and persistent encephalopathy was listed for LT. Preoperative abdominal angiotomography revealed the presence of a large spontaneous shunt between the SMV and the RRV. The patient underwent LT b...

Hey guys! Just curious. What would be your induction for a 50–60 yo 70 kg patient with severely depress EF (lets say 15%). Let's just skip all the other considerations say she is not decompensated and has optimal medical management on board. Just focus on the induction for a GA with intubation. Pre–induction arterial line for sure. And what about if its ischemic CM? Would you start with vasopressors on board? Thanks in advance for sharing!

Recently I've been doing more axillary arterial lines in the ICU. They are much easier to place than radials, have more collateral circulation than brachials, and last way longer than either so it means torturing your patients less. However, one thing that still bugs me about them is that I feel that there is no guaranteed way to avoid the brachial plexus. You can often see the nerve bundles around the artery with ultrasound, but not always that well. And, sometimes, the only way to get to... Avoiding the brachial plexus when placing axillary a-lines
