Deep anesthesia, poorly tolerated anesthesia?
[Deep anesthesia, poorly tolerated anesthesia?] Anaesthesist. 2019 Sep 06;: Authors: Georgii MT, Schneider G Abstract Besides very low depth of anesthesia (DOA) index values, special intraoperative electroencephalography (EEG) patterns, such as burst suppression patterns and the correlation with postoperative delirium and mortality have been examined. Over the last decade the 13 studies described in this article yielded information that documented low DOA indices or burst suppression patterns increased the risk of either postoperative cognitive dysfunction or mortality; however, these were mainly secondary data analyses or retrospective observational studies. The first prospective interventional study regarding triple low could not confirm this correlation. Meanwhile, the first prospective interventional studies on avoidance of excessive EEG suppression are currently in progress. The results would not only enable the formulation of evidence-based recommendations but should also provide indicatíons and references as to whether the above mentioned observations can be explained by a causal association or an epiphenomenon.

In this study, an attempt to oxidise the surface of a commercial activated carbon to improve its adsorption capacity for sevoflurane was conducted using 6 mol/L nitric acid, 2 mol/L ammonium persulfate, and 30 wt per cent (wt%) of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The adsorption tests at fixed conditions (bed depth: 10 cm, inlet concentration: 528 mg/L, and flow rate: 3 L/min) revealed that H2O2 oxidation gave desirable sevoflurane adsorption (0.510 ± 0.005 mg/m2). A parametric study was conducted with H2O2 to investigate the effect of oxidation conditions to the changes in surfa...
ConclusionAS/AD is a mechanical disorder of the larynx that can be successfully treated if promptly diagnosed. Clinical trials and multi-centric studies are necessary to set management guidelines.
