4th year electives for anesthesia

I'm in this position now making changes to my 4th yearschedule and would like any suggestions. I currently have my home anesthesia, 1 away, medicine AI, ICU elective, cardiology elective, and emergency med (all required). I already have sleep med (planning to change, heard from 4th years it's not that good), ICU procedures (essentially night shift, 4th years said it's ok), and online anatomy. I'm thinking of adding online radiology but I still need some more stuff. I'm currently looking at... 4th year electives for anesthesia

Authors: Lee S Abstract Dexmedetomidine is a potent, highly selective α-2 adrenoceptor agonist, with sedative, analgesic, anxiolytic, sympatholytic, and opioid-sparing properties. Dexmedetomidine induces a unique sedative response which shows easy transition from sleep to wakefulness, allowing a patient to be cooperative and communicative when stimulated. Dexmedetomidine may produce less delirium compared with other sedatives, or even prevent delirium. Analgesic effect of dexmedetomidine is not strong, however, it can be administered as a useful analgesic adjuvant. Dexmedetomidine decreases the need for opioi...

In the moments before a patient undergoes surgery, chances are climate change isn't top of mind. Yet, the anesthetic gases used to put them to sleep leave a big carbon footprint. Some Canadian doctors are trying to do something about it.

ConclusionsOur results showed a high prevalence of acute sleep disturbance. Patients with acute sleep disruption had low postoperative sleep efficiency and impaired functional ability three months after surgery.

The “neural correlates of consciousness” (NCC) is a familiar topic in neuroscience, overlapping with research on the brain’s “default mode network”. Task-based studies of NCC by their nature recruit one part of the cortical network to study another, and are therefore both limited and compromised in what they can reveal about consciousness itself. The form of consciousness explored in such research, we term the human default consciousness (DCs), our everyday waking consciousness. In contrast, studies of anaesthesia, coma, deep sleep, or some extreme pathological states such as epilepsy, reveal ...

ConclusionPoor SQ and excessive DS are frequently occurring phenomena. Since sleep disturbances are also related to the nature of their profession, the problem could be reduced by introducing organisational changes at work.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder characterized by breathing cessation caused by obstruction of the upper airway during sleep. It is associated with multiorgan comorbidities such as obesity, hypertension, heart failure, arrhythmias, diabetes mellitus, and stroke. Patients with OSA have an increased prevalence of ophthalmic disorders such as cataract, glaucoma, central serous retinopathy (detachment of retina, macular hole), eyelid laxity, keratoconus, and nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy; and some might require surgery.

The rising rate of obesity is of worldwide concern. It is predicted that by 2022, 80% of American adults will be overweight or obese1 and obesity is now the most prevalent threat for a healthy pregnancy outcome.2 Of the four million women who give birth in the United States (US) each year, an estimated 1.6 million receive epidural analgesia during delivery.3 Obesity-related diseases such as pre-eclampsia, diabetes, cardiopulmonary diseases and obstructive sleep apnoea reduce the safety margin of anesthetic drugs in obese parturients.

Abstract BACKGROUND: The Snoring, Trouble Breathing and Un-Refreshed Questionnaire is a 5-question screening tool for pediatric sleep-disordered breathing and risk for perioperative respiratory adverse events in children. The utility of this questionnaire as a preoperative risk-stratification tool has not been investigated. In view of limited availability of screening tools for preoperative pediatric sleep disordered breathing, we evaluated the questionnaire's performance for post-anesthesia adverse events that can impact post-anesthesia care and disposition. METHODS: The retrospective study protocol was appr...
