It’s been enough for a bit, isn’t it? For three months now, there has been little space in the world for any other kind of news. That is, news without the word ‘coronavirus’. But there was innovation, there is excitement and, well, even some weird (although useful!) inventions that appeared while the world has been in lockdown. So here’s an outlook on such news, all, promise, without that particular C-word. Hospitals have been facing great challenges recently. But they are on the verge of a new era that brings better care and more focus on the patient. This is a trend we have been talking a...

Currently the COVID-19 pandemic is putting significant strain on the healthcare systems across the globe. Our anaesthetic colleagues are under immense pressure and in some instances have been redeployed to other settings, limiting our ability to operate under general or regional anaesthesia. We propose that training in both wide awake local anaesthesia no tourniquet (WALANT) as well as ultrasound guided blocks should be incorporated into plastic surgery training or at the very least in to the hand surgery subspecialty curriculum to help overcome such a problem in the future.

A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as the cause of a cluster of pneumonia in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. Since then more than four million confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been reported around the globe. The current gold standard for etiological diagnosis is reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) analysis of respiratory tract specimens, but the test has a high false-negative rate due to both nasopharyngeal swab sampling error and viral burden.

AbstractNon-protocolized fluid administration in critically ill patients, especially those with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), is associated with poor outcomes. Therefore, fluid administration in patients with Coronavirus  disease (COVID-19) should be properly guided. Choice of an index to guide fluid management during a pandemic with mass patient admissions carries an additional challenge due to the relatively limited resources. An ideal test for assessment of fluid responsiveness during this pandemic should be acc urate in ARDS patients, economic, easy to interpret by junior staff, valid in patients in ...

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine states that ultrasound providers must be safeguarded from COVID-19 transmission [1]. Additionally, ultrasound examinations should be postponed to prioritize urgent procedures involving percutaneous hepato-biliary drainage and ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma. However, novel means for shielding against patient-generated aerosols remain undeveloped. A negative-pressure room should be prepared to turn off aerosol circulation when performing interventions for patients with COVID-19.
