Watching news this morning and the NP commercial came on. Patients talking about how close they are to their NPs and prefer them. Consider an NP. “When patients choose, patients win” is their tag line. When the hell are WE going to do a commercial to promote us? Or is that not allowed lest we upset our colleague PROVIDERS? We need to play fire with fire.
Hello. Coming over from the surgery world. I’d like to start by saying that I have been a long time reader of this forum and highly respect the expertise and opinions of many of you seasoned anesthesiologists on this board. Your comments on a variety of topics have been some of the most intelligent and well thought out on the internet period. I am switching to anesthesia after a few years from a surgical subspecialty. I am on a research year and have applied to both advanced and R... Ranking: Should I delay start of CA1 year (Advanced vs. R Position?)
Hey everyone, I have question about dead space. In a healthy patient, the number I read is that the dead space is about 25-30% of the tidal volume. But, when you actually calculate the ratio of dead space to tidal volume (Vd/Vt) in a healthy patient, you get a much smaller number. The formula I am using is (Vd/Vt) = (PaCO2 - EtCO2)/PaCO2. In a healthy patient, we say the difference between End tidal CO2 and PaCO2 is about 3-5. Assuming EtCO2 is 35, and PaCO2 is 40, you get (40-35)/40... Question about Dead Space
We are looking for 1 cardiac anesthesiologist to round out our recruiting efforts. The job is a newly formed partnership at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, a quaternary care center in Minneapolis. The case mix includes ~1000 bypass cases annually including LVADs and heart transplants. Approximately 50% of clinical time would be cardiac and the rest covering an attached 38-suite main OR and attached dedicated OB hospital. Approximate start date of June 30 but flexible. Please contact... Seeking Cardiac Anesthesiologist for Partnership Track (Minneapolis)
Conclusions: Our study demonstrated that the rich-club reorganization in functional brain networks is characterized by switching of rich-club nodes between the high-order cognitive and sensory and motor networks during propofol-induced alteration of consciousness and natural sleep. These findings will help understand the common neurological mechanism of pharmacological and physiological unconsciousness.
Authors: Yoon D, Jang JH, Choi BJ, Kim TY, Han CH Abstract Biosignals like electrocardiogram or photoplethysmogram have been widely used for monitoring and determining status of patients. However, it has been recently discovered that more information than that we have used traditionally were included in the biosignals after artificial intelligence (AI) was applied. Most meaningful advancement of current AI was in deep learning. The deep learning-based models show the best performance in most area in current due to the distinguished characteristic that it is able to extract important features from raw data. For that...
OBJECTIVES: Alcohol for intercostal neuralgia may induce severe injection pain. Although nerve block provided partial pain relief, alcohol might be diluted, and the curative effect decreased when the local anesthetic and alcohol were given at the same point. Therefore, we observed the modified method for intercostal neuralgia, a Two-point method, in which the local anesthetic and alcohol were given at different sites. METHOD: Thirty patients diagnosed with intercostal neuralgia were divided into 2 groups: Single-point group and Two-point group. In the Single-point group, alcohol and local anesthetic were injected at the sa...
ConclusionsDespite evidence of emerging services, this survey describes barriers to ongoing development of perioperative medicine. Facilitators may include increased clinical exposure, targeted education and training and collaborative working with other specialties.
Rajsrinivas Parthasarathy, Vipul GuptaAnnals of Indian Academy of Neurology 2020 23(1):13-19 The stroke physician community witnessed a major “breakthrough” in acute stroke therapeutics when the results of the first of the many positive trials, “MR CLEAN,” were published showing a significant absolute benefit in favor of mechanical thrombectomy in patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO). Thereafter, the investigators of ESCAPE, SWIFT PRIME, REVASCAT, THRACE, and PISTE concluded the same. Based on the initial studies, the American Stroke Association amended the 2013 guidelines in 2015 to include ...
