Nasal Cannula Versus Face Tent for Oxygen Delivery in the Post Anesthesia Setting

Different practices exist to safely oxygenate patients in the post-anesthesia care unit. The practice at Hunterdon Medical Center was to apply 40% face tent to each postoperative patient that received general anesthesia. A new anesthesia team at our facility introduced the practice of administering four liters by nasal cannula to our post-operative patients. A review of the literature was performed to evaluate the efficacy of the two different means of oxygen administration to post-operative patients who had received general anesthesia.

Conclusion: Vitamin C has significantly improved the patients ’ ventricular function (EF) 72 h after surgery and reduced the length of ICU stay. No significant changes in cardiac biomarkers, including CK-MB, troponin I, and LDH, were seen over time in each group. IRCT code: IRCT2016053019470N33

We report a case of a 59-year-old female patient with vegetative native mitral valve endocarditis caused by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (SM). She had hemodialysis-dependent chronic renal failure, but no immunosuppressive disease. Echocardiography showed mobile vegetation on her native mitral valve. Right femoral artery embolectomy and mitral valve replacement were performed simultaneously. She awakened from anesthesia, but she passed away due to septic shock complications. To the best of our knowledge, this was the first case in whom native mitral valve endocarditis caused by SM was observed (despite of absence of any imm...

Supraclavicular block could be a safe and effective alternative. Our primary objective was to assess the incidence of hemidiaphragmatic paralysis following ultrasound-guided supraclavi...

The present study investigated whether resveratrol could similarly affect the JOR under in vivo conditions via 5 H T3 receptor-mediated GABAergic inhibition. We used electrical stimulation of the tongue in pentobarbital-anesthetized rats...
