Conclusion: Although peripheral neuropathies are known complications of peripheral nerve blocks, such a prolonged brachial plexus block is a rare event. The only plausible cause for the patient's condition could have been the prolonged drug effect; however, it has been rarely documented. PMID: 32425591 [PubMed]

let P Abstract Pulmonary complications are the most common clinical manifestations of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). From recent clinical observation, two phenotypes have emerged: a low elastance or L-type and a high elastance or H-type. Clinical presentation, pathophysiology, pulmonary mechanics, radiological and ultrasound findings of these two phenotypes are different. Consequently, the therapeutic approach also varies between the two. We propose a management algorithm that combines the respiratory rate and oxygenation index with bedside lung ultrasound examination and monitoring that could help determine earl...

Conclusions: For improved efficiency in the pediatric population, the dose of levobupivacaine should be greater than 0.4 mg/kg. Children's weight should be considered to anticipate any risk of toxicity.
