Abstract OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe typical anesthesia practices for children with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). STUDY DESIGN: Online survey. METHOD: A sample of pediatric anesthesiologists received the survey by email. RESULTS: 110 respondents were included. 46.4% worked in a free-standing children's hospital and 32.7% worked in a children's facility within a general hospital. 73.6% taught residents. 44.4% saw at least one child with OSA per week, 25.5% saw them daily. On a 100-mm visual analog scale, respondents rated their comfort with managing these children as 84.94 (...

Purpose: To investigate the density of conjunctival blood vessels in normal eyes and in eyes with pinguecula or pterygium. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the conjunctival blood vessel density of 15 normal eyes, 15 pinguecula eyes, and 15 pterygium eyes of 43 healthy adults was assessed using optical coherence tomography angiography with an anterior segment lens adapter. The nasal surface of each eye (3 × 3 mm) was scanned 3 times to a depth of 800 μm. Conjunctival vessel density was defined as the percent of the scanned volume occupied by vessels in which blood flow was measured. Results: The high...

ConclusionsThe presence of Candida spp airway colonization is associated with longer durations of mechanical ventilation, higher 28-day mortality, higher ICU mortality, and probably longer ICU length of stay compared with the absence of colonization in patients with VAP.

Authors: George E, Rajalakshmi A Abstract Melioidosis is an infectious disease caused by gram negative bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. It is a soil and water pathogen and transmitted to humans through inoculation or inhalation. This disease is considered endemic in India and largely remains under reported. The most common presentation is pneumonia and bacteraemia, which can present acutely and as septic shock. Chronic presentation include-abscess, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis. The major risk factors are diabetes, liver disease, renal disease, chronic lung disease. In this article 18 cases have been reviewed...

Authors: Udupi S, Puri K Abstract Background: Mis-transfusion of blood components triggering serious complications are mostly due to preventable clerical errors, especially pre-transfusion misidentification of patient/blood unit at bedside. Recommendations for standard identity check is by electronic devices like barcode scanners. Establishments unable to afford these gadgets (e.g. economically poorer countries) perform identity check subjectively through visual judgement. This is prone to errors precipitating tremendous anxiety in personnel transfusing blood unit. Hence a novel objective method for pre-transfusion...

Publication date: Available online 6 December 2019Source: Journal of Pharmacological SciencesAuthor(s): Hiroki Murai, Hiroto Suzuki, Hirochi Tanji, Tomoki Kimura, Yoshinori IbaAbstractWe investigated the effects of sleep-inducing agents with different mechanisms of action on the loss of the righting reflex induced by isoflurane or a mixture of medetomidine, midazolam, and butorphanol (MMB), followed by atipamezole reversal. Chlorpromazine and brotizolam delayed recovery from both types of anesthesia, whereas the melatonin receptor agonist ramelteon had no effect. The orexin receptor antagonist suvorexant delayed recovery f...
