Dexmedetomidine is often used in the intensive care setting, but how might it impact the duration of mechanical ventilation in septic patients?BMC Pulmonary Medicine
Controlling gain of cortical activity is essential to modulate weights between internal ongoing communication and external sensory drive. Here, we show that serotonergic input has separable suppressive effects on the gain of ongoing and evoked visual activity. We combined optogenetic stimulation of the dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN) with wide-field calcium imaging, extracellular recordings, and iontophoresis of serotonin (5-HT) receptor antagonists in the mouse visual cortex. 5-HT1A receptors promote divisive suppression of spontaneous activity, while 5-HT2A receptors act divisively on visual response gain and largely account ...
So looking ahead a few months after this crisis has passed. What will change permanently? Shaking hands might be a thing of the past at this point. I think a lot of people will be more protective of their "personal space" for quite a while. How long will we be wearing masks in public? How long will we use N95 masks in the OR as a matter of routine? Once it arrives - how long will we continue to do rapid testing of OR patients prior to elective surgery?
SEPARATION from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) after cardiac surgery is a progressive transition from full mechanical circulatory and respiratory support to spontaneous mechanical activity of the lungs and heart. During the separation phase, measurements of cardiac performance with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provide the rationale behind the diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making process. In many cases, it is possible to predict a complex separation from CPB, such as when there is known preoperative left or right ventricular dysfunction, bleeding, hypovolemia, vasoplegia, pulmonary hypertension, or owing to te...
Conclusion. In this consecutive case series we performed 231 ADRs in 147 patients in the outpatient setting, including multilevel and revision procedures, with 2 minor postoperative complications resulting in hospital unplanned admissions within 90 days. We believe that these procedures are safe to perform in an ASC. An efficient surgical team and careful patient selection criteria are critical in making this possible. Level of Evidence: 3
Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. To assess nonresponder biases for the HCAHPS survey following spine surgery. Summary of Background Data. The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey is a publicly reported patient satisfaction survey. In addition to having the potential of impacting a hospital's reputation, it is directly linked to government reimbursement. However, it is known that a minority of patients return this survey, and it is expected that there are nonresponder biases. Methods. All adult inpatient spine surgery patients at a single institution...
