AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review our current understanding of the intravascular space, therapeutic goals of fluid resuscitation, suitable endpoints of resuscitation, and appropriate choice of fluids.Recent FindingsAn evolving understanding of the endothelium and glycocalyx has improved our understanding of the intravascular space. More aggressive fluid resuscitation after adoption of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines has led to an initial reduction in mortality associated with sepsis; however, the untoward effects of volume overload are increasingly evident. Fluid responsiveness is likely the best endpoint for res...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review seeks to highlight the issue of when the best time to operate is given the neurocognitive consequences of pediatric OSA.Recent FindingsLearning and memory deficits persist after adenotonsillectomy in school age children with the disease at 9-month follow-up, suggesting short-term damage to the hippocampus in young children with OSA.SummaryLarger trials with younger children with pediatric OSA are currently ongoing to evaluate the impact of adenotonsillectomy on learning and memory recovery.

If any of you have flown with a 12-24 months old toddler, you will know that that can be the most difficult form of flying. While babies will sleep and be soothed by warm milk, and 2 year olds can be entertained by screens and movies, the group in between those ages, 12-24 month old toddlers, are a real challenge. They are curious and mobile with short attention spans. Screen time has no hold over them. They will push and kick their way out of baby carriers and cry and scream if restrained...

I know this topic has been posted about quite a bit in the past but I'd like to share my experience and get some advice. I took the oral boards last year and unfortunately ended up failing my first exam ever. I began studying around 4 months out and my main study schedule focused mostly on UBP and repeatedly practicing its' stems out loud with colleagues while supplementing my knowledge base in areas I felt weak using Yao &Artusio and Big Red. I also would listen to anesthesia-related... My Experience/Retaking Oral Boards Advice.

Authors: Dinia L, Mangini F, Marella MA, Frezza F Abstract The paper examines the different perceptions of risk associated with anesthesia systems from the viewpoint of the product manufacturer and the caregiver. Only a little research has been done with regard to the impact of perception of risk on patient safety in anesthesia. The role of the manufacturer in mitigating the perception of risk will be central for the work. The risk will be examined as the probability of negative occurrences based on the Medical Device Reportable (MDR) events for 2016 and 2017 and it will be examined how the caregiver perceives and ...

Publication date: Available online 20 April 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Vishwaraj Ratha, V.R. Roopesh Kumar, Sudhakar Subramaniam, Senthil Kumar, Vijay Sankaran, K.R. Suresh BapuAbstractRe-appearance of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) pain following microvascular decompression (MVD) is a challenging issue. A selective ablation with MVD provides the best response in such recurrences. The absence of intra-operative indicator for immediate correction of sub-optimal decompression is the primary factor for failure.We analysed the effectiveness and safety of awake MVD in minimizing failure, by tailoring the ...

AbstractIntroductionDespite the numerous studies investigating drug-induced anaphylaxis (DIA), understanding and quantitative data analysis in developing countries remain limited. The aim of our study is to describe and quantify DIA using the National Pharmacovigilance Database of Vietnam (NPDV).MethodsSpontaneous reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) recorded between 2010 and 2016 were retrospectively analysed to identify DIA reports. The trend and characteristics of DIA cases were described. Multivariate disproportionality analysis was used for signal generation.ResultsOverall, 4873 DIA cases (13.2% of total ADRs) w...

Propofol may increase caspase and MAPK pathways, and suppress the Akt pathway to induce apoptosis in MA‑10 mouse Leydig tumor cells. Oncol Rep. 2019 Apr 18;: Authors: Kang FC, Wang SC, So EC, Chang MM, Wong KL, Cheng KS, Chen YC, Huang BM Abstract In the western world, there is an increasing trend of occurrence in testicular cancer. Treatment of malignant testicular cancer is primarily combined surgery with various chemical drugs. Propofol has been frequently used as an anesthetic and sedative induction agent, which could modulate different γ‑aminobutyric acid receptors in the central nervous...

CONCLUSION: This systematic review and meta-analysis indicates that propofol use for general anesthesia in young healthy children undergoing surgery does not increase complications and that propofol could be at least comparable to other anesthetic agents. PMID: 31001938 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Kang J, Cho YS, Choi DK, Lee JS, Oh YM, Lee SD, Lee SW Abstract Bronchial thermoplasty is a nonpharmacological treatment for severe asthma that delivers thermal energy to the bronchial walls and reduces hypertrophied smooth muscle mass. Previous studies have shown its efficacy and safety, resulting in approval from the Food and Drug Administration in 2010. In Korea, the first bronchial thermoplasty was carried out in 2014; 4 patients have undergone the procedure so far. This case series presents the medical history and treatment outcomes of these 4 patients. All patients presented with uncontrolled asthma ...
