Hello I need some advice as I am at a crossing point in my career. I am currently a PMR pain and I joined an Anesthesia Pain private practice solo practicioner last year. He is getting older so he wants to meet with me and discuss a 2-3 year plan. Right now I have a straight base salary. We are EXTREMELY busy though we do about 20-30 procedures half day in his ASC as well as on clinic days we see about 30+ patients a day (which for me is draining and a lot). The thing I don't like is I... Negotiating new contract with boss

HowieAbstractPain in labour is often described as one of the most severe pains experienced. Neuraxial techniques provide the most effective form of labour analgesia. However, not all women wish to have this or indeed want complete pain relief in labour. There are also subgroups of women in whom neuraxial techniques are contraindicated or attempted placement is unsuccessful. Therefore delivery units must be able to offer a range of non-neuraxial analgesia options for labour.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients undergoing posterior spinal fusion, especially those with secondary scoliosis, are frequently unable to adequately perform pulmonary function tests. Among patients with interpretable pulmonary function tests, there was no association between results and postoperative intubation or intensive care unit admission. Routine pulmonary function testing for all patients with scoliosis may not be indicated for purposes of risk assessment before posterior spinal fusion. Clinicians should consider a targeted approach and limit pulmonary function tests to patients for whom results may guide preoperative optimizat...
Abstract The "What's New in Obstetric Anesthesia Lecture" is presented every year at the annual meeting of the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology. This lecture was established in 1975 to update the membership on the most relevant articles that were published in the preceding calendar year. In 1995, the lecture was renamed as the "Ostheimer Lecture" in honor of Gerard W. Ostheimer, an obstetric anesthesiologist from the Brigham and Women's Hospital with significant contributions in the field. This review summarizes key articles published in 2017 that were presented in the 2018 Ost...
