Purpose of review Patient decision aids are educational tools used to assist patients and clinicians in healthcare decisions. As healthcare moves toward patient-centered care, these tools can provide support to anesthesiologists by facilitating shared decision-making. Recent findings Recent research has shown that patient decision aids are beneficial in the clinical setting for patients and physicians. Studies have shown that patients feel better informed, have better knowledge, and have less anxiety, depression, and decisional conflict after using patient decision aids. In addition, a structured approach for the deve...

CONCLUSIONS: We did not find sufficient evidence to draw firm conclusions as to the best interventions to increase acceptance of LA in children due to variation in methodology and nature/timing of outcome measures. We recommend further parallel RCTs, reported in line with the CONSORT Statement. Care should be taken when choosing outcome measures. PMID: 32104910 [PubMed - in process]

Ramya Ravi, Muthapillai Senthilnathan, Ranjith K Sivakumar, Chanjeeviram SuganthapriyaIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2020 64(2):145-147 Capnography and end tidal CO2 (EtCO2) aids the anaesthesiologist in diagnosing problems during all phases of general anaesthesia. Negative arterial to end-tidal carbon-dioxide gradient during anaesthesia has been reported in various conditions including pregnancy, infants and inadvertent exogenous addition of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the expired gas in case of thoracoscopic procedures with iatrogenic injury to lung parenchyma/bronchial tree. Thus, airway injury or intentional opening of air...

CONCLUSIONS: The American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses guideline is applicable for preventing hypothermia under general anesthesia, which, in turn, aids in patient recovery through the suppression of various hypothermia-related complications. PMID: 32005604 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Waxman, Allen Tanner, Jeffery Yoder, David Bar-OrAbstractOxidative stress exacerbates brain damage following ischemia-reperfusion and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Management of TBI and critically ill patients commonly involves use of propofol, a sedation medication that acts as a general anesthetic with inherent antioxidant properties. Here we review available evidence from animal model systems and clinical studies that propofol prot...

Abstract Four basic types of visual aids are used for teaching airway management and decision-making in simulated as well as in real clinical situations: universal algorithms, sets of limited algorithms, concept-based cognitive aids and checklists. The first three may represent an evolution in the understanding of the role of human error in both successful and failed airway management. Complex visual aids such as the American Society of Anesthesiology difficult airway algorithm may be more useful for teaching, while graphic cognitive aids like the Vortex may be more helpful for decision-making under stress. Not su...

CONCLUSION: In contrast to commonly used perioperative risk classifications, frailty is a sensitive marker for the patient's biological age. Therefore, it appears more suitable for estimating the perioperative risk than chronological age or other conventional tools, such as the ASA classification and is therefore a prerequisite for patient centered treatment pathways.
