Publication date: Available online 17 August 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Claire E. Adams, Michael DobsonAbstractThere is a discrepancy between healthcare need and the ability to provide safe anaesthesia in low/low-middle income countries (LMICs). There is a shortage of medically trained anaesthetists. Most anaesthetics are provided by non-physician anaesthetists who may not have studied the core sciences underpinning anaesthesia, but are clinically very competent. Poor infrastructure is common, such as a shortage of piped medical gases and critical care beds. Safe anaesthesia depends on e...

Publication date: Available online 22 July 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical AnaesthesiologyAuthor(s): Berthold Bein, Jochen RennerLess invasive or even completely non-invasive haemodynamic monitoring technologies have evolved during the last decades. Even established, invasive devices such as the pulmonary artery catheter and transpulmonary thermodilution have still an evidence-based place in the perioperative setting, albeit only in special patient populations. Accumulating evidence suggests to use continuous haemodynamic monitoring, especially flow-based variables such as stroke volume or cardiac output t...

Hi, I'm a DO student with COMLEX level 1 and 2 scores and USMLE CK score. Does it make sense to take step 1 even if it means that I won't receive the grade a month after submitting ERAS?

AbstractIntroductionTo determine whether the placement of an interscalene brachial plexus block (IBPB) with general anaesthesia before shoulder arthroscopy would be effective in establishing a clear visual field and in shortening the surgical procedure.MethodThis prospective randomized control trial study included 152 patients who had undergone arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Group A received IBPB and group B did not receive IBPB. A visual clarity scale (VCS) was determined by arthroscopic visualization. The systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), heart rate (HR), duration of surgical procedure, VC...
