Abstract The inhalational anaesthetic agent - sevoflurane is widely employed for the induction and maintenance of surgical anaesthesia. Sevoflurane possesses a high global warming potential that imposes negative impact to the environment. The only way to resolve the issue is to remove sevoflurane from the medical waste gas before it reaches the atmosphere. A continuous adsorption study with a fixed-bed column was conducted using two commercial granular activated carbons (E-GAC and H-GAC), to selectively remove sevoflurane. The effect of bed depth (Z, 5-15 cm), gas flow rate (Q, 0.5-6.0 L/min) and inlet sevoflu...

Hello bone bad boys! I'm an anesthesiologist who has worked at a high volume total joint center of excellence, usually 5-8 total joints/day/OR out by 4/5 with some pretty excellent/good-natured surgeons I'd let operate on my family. Everything was for the most part efficient, almost everyone who was a good candidate had a spinal, possible regional vs. surgeon injecting exparel (more likely injection), 25 min turnovers. I'm at a place now where the surgeon preferences are more variable... Anesthesiologist question on your ortho preferences

Anyone leave patient on ventilator until they wake up? Off course I make sure muscle relaxant is fully reversed. It seems patient wake up better this way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

ConclusionThis research supports and extends the ethnomedicinal use of C. songarica as diuretic and hypotensive agent. The results showed that AS-CS from C. songarica could present compounds responsible for hypotensive and diuretic activities with no signs of toxicity, and these effects could involve nitric oxide pathway activated by muscarinic receptors or/and inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme.Graphical abstract

This study aimed to observe the effects of different degrees of neuromuscular blockade on state and response entropy during sevoflurane anesthesia. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighty-one female patients were randomized to 9 groups (n=9 per group) according to the concentration of sevoflurane and degree of neuromuscular blockade. Response and state entropy were monitored. The endpoints were: 1) impact of neuromuscular blockade on state entropy and response entropy, and the difference between response entropy and state entropy; and 2) the response of entropy after cutaneous tetanic electrical noxious stimulation to the ulnar nerve ...

The cerebellar cortical molecular layer interneuron-Purkinje cell (MLI-PC) synapses are critical for various information integration and transmission, which are sensitive to acute and ...

Just before I induced anesthesia, he said, “Doc, I want to apologize beforehand. I am incontinent due to a previous surgery so I might wet the sheets.” I told him not to worry and that we understood and that“these things do happen.” His response has stuck with me:“Doc, but there is still some […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

VainceAbstractEnhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal protocol applied towards perioperative patient care. ERAS programs are implemented by a multidisciplinary team centered around the patient, incorporating outpatient clinical staff, preoperative nurses, anesthesiologists, operative nurses, postoperative recovery staff, floor inpatient nurses, dieticians, physical therapists, social workers, and surgeons. Initial studies on peri...

Hi all, I’m currently a CA-1 and considering applying to pain. I’m also considering regional anesthesia. I don’t mind the Pain patient population, find the topic interesting, and think that The Interventional Pain procedures are cool and innovative. My problem is the following: I’m at the ASRA pain conference and can’t help but think some of the people here come off as snake oil salesmen - especially the neuromodulation folks. Especially when those same people speaking are wearing Louis... Fears about Pain Fellowship
