Chest cavity fire during emergency cardiac surgery

(ESA (European Society of Anaesthesiology)) At this year's Euroanaesthesia Congress (the annual meeting of the European Society of Anaesthesiology) in Vienna, Austria (1-3 June), doctors present the unique case of a man who suffered a flash fire in his chest cavity during emergency heart surgery caused by supplemental oxygen leaking from a ruptured lung.

Several of the locations I'm looking at are staffed by Mednax/ American Anesthesiology. Can anyone at one of their groups- specifically NC, speak about them? Their stock is dropping the last 5 years so I am worried about their "employee stock purchase plan". Seems like a loss of money.

Publication date: Available online 18 October 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Anthony J. Wilson, Sandeep NayakAbstractMedical devices are one way by which healthcare-associated infections can be transmitted. Medical equipment can be categorized based on its risk of spreading infection and these categories aid decisions about whether to decontaminate or dispose of a used medical device. Decontamination is the process by which a reusable device is rendered safe for further use through cleaning and either disinfection or sterilization. It is frequently an automated process which usually involves...

BrainAbstractQuantitative physicochemical models of human acid–base physiology filled a void between clinical acid–base analysis and general fluid physiology. Established approaches centred on the Henderson–Hasselbalch (HH) equation allow satisfactory bedside exploration of respiratory perturbations, but do not fully elucidate mechanisms of common non-respiratory ‘metabolic’ components. Though useful at the bedside, commonly used ‘rules...

BurnettAbstractAimsNitric oxide (NO) has a critical, but not well understood, influence in the physiology of the lower urinary tract. We evaluated the effect of NO/phosphodiesterase (PDE)5 signaling in voiding dysfunction in the sickle cell disease (SCD) mouse, characterized by low NO bioavailability.Main methodsAdult SCD (Sickle) and wild-type (WT) male mice were treated daily with sodium nitrate (10 mM) or vehicle. After 18 days, b...

CONCLUSION: Our study characterizes sleep patterns and identifies potential risk factors linked to sleep disturbances in a sample of Portuguese anaesthesiologists. Government and institutional policies can endorse sleep hygiene practices and habits, promoting healthier working environments. PMID: 31625876 [PubMed - in process]

Been having issues with catheters becoming dislodged after surgery despite good u/s confirmation of catheter location and good catheter tape job ( ie catheters at same cm mark at skin as documented). Any other tips for successful placement that lasts? Are you guys leaving your catheters posterior or anterior to the plexus? Do you guys try to coil the catheter in the muscle or subq tissues? I do them solo - my technique is epidural kit -> touhy with 20 cc syringe of LA -> find spot, inject LA... interscalene catheters tips

In this study, we used an ex-vivo model to investigate the recovery pattern of both the train-of-four (TOF) ratio and first twitch tension of TOF (T1), and determined their relationship during recovery from rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade at various concentrations of sugammadex. Methods: Tissue specimens of the phrenic nerve-diaphragm were obtained in 60 adult Sprague-Dawley rats. Each specimen was immersed in an organ bath filled with Krebs buffer solution and stimulated with the TOF pattern using indirect supramaximal stimulation at 20-second intervals. After a 30-minute stabilization period, rocuronium loa...
