Comparison of flow pressures in different 3-way infusion devices: an in-vitro study.

In this study, we aim to determine the pressures generated in common 3-way infusion devices, using simple low-cost equipment available and currently in use in the operating theatre environment. Methods: We compared three different common and commercially available 3-way infusion devices that allowed multiple infusions through one cannula in vitro. One with anti-siphon valves, one without valves, and serial extension sets with side ports connected in series. An invasive blood pressure transducer was used to monitor line pressure. Seven different infusion rates were used to simulate different infusions. Results: 3-way infusion devices with anti-siphon valves have 5.5 times the infusion pressures compared to devices without valves (P

This study aimed to encapsulate drug into the silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) by using drug-Gemini surfactant mixed aggregate. The applicability of drug-surfactant based AgNPs is to carry the maximum amount of drug during the drug delivery process. The nano-size mixed aggregate was prepared by a local anaesthetic amphiphilic drug, tetracaine hydrochloride (TC) and Gemini surfactants, pentamethylene-1, 5-bis(tetradecyldimethylammonium bromide) (GS-5, 14-5-14) and hexamethylene-1,6-bis(tetradecyldimethylammonium bromide) (GS-6, 14-6-14). Surface tension and conductance measurements were used to determine the physiological and t...

Conclusions: In pediatric patients with OI, intraoperative use of NIBP cuffs and tourniquets was not associated with iatrogenic fracture. There were no complications related to intra-arterial catheter use. Care should be used during the perioperative period to prevent fractures during body positioning. Level of Evidence: Level IV.

Today, we are featuring Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld from the American Medical Association (AMA) on THCB Spotlight. Matthew Holt interviews Dr. Ehrenfeld, Chair-elect of the AMA Board of Trustees and an anesthesiologist with the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. The AMA has recently released their Digital Health Implementation Playbook, which is a guide to adopting digital health solutions. They also launched a new online platform called the Physician Innovation Network to help connect physicians with entrepreneurs and developers. Watch the interview to find out more about how the AMA is supporting health innovation, as wel...
