AbstractA new outpatient non-surgical method using Er:YAG laser for snoring has been demonstrated. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to investigate the effects of this treatment on snoring. Relevant 1548 articles were searched from various databases from 1 January 2000 to September 2018 including PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and Scopus and reference lists. Meta-analysis was performed with RevMan software. Cochran ’sQ andI2 statistics were used to assess heterogeneity. The overall effect was evaluated using z-tests. Seven studies and two hundred forty-seven participa...

Authors: Bloom J, Wyler D, Torjman MC, Trinh T, Li L, Mehta A, Fitchett E, Kastenberg D, Mahla M, Romo V Abstract Background: Although anesthesia providers may plan for moderate sedation, the depth of sedation is rarely quantified. Using processed electroencephalography (EEG) to assess the depth of sedation, this study investigates the incidence of general anesthesia with variable burst suppression in patients receiving propofol for outpatient colonoscopy. The lessons learned from neuromonitoring can then be used to guide institutional best sedation practice. Methods: This was a prospective observational study ...

Authors: Kondo T, Izumi H, Kitagawa M Abstract Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of desflurane, sevoflurane, and propofol on the glottic opening area during general anesthesia using remifentanil. Methods: Ninety patients undergoing hand and upper limb surgery combined with brachial plexus block under general anesthesia were enrolled in the study. The patients were randomized into three groups to receive desflurane (group D), sevoflurane (group S), or propofol (group P) for maintenance of anesthesia. Following induction of general anesthesia with remifentanil, continuous fiberoptic video ...

Abstract Index of consciousness (IoC) consisting of IoC1 and IoC2, is a new analgesia monitoring indicator in anesthesia evaluation in the laparoscopic radical resection of colorectal cancer. Although the precise anesthetic dosage adjusted by IoC1 has been confirmed to enhance the recovery and reduce the complications of anesthesia, the most appropriate range of IoC2 during anesthesia remains unclear. To investigate the correlation between IoC2 and peri-operative indicators of patients during laparoscopic radical resection of colorectal cancer, the current randomized, controlled, and single-blinded clinical trial ...

Authors: Geddis-Regan A, Kerr K, Curl C Abstract Dementia has been described as the biggest health and social care challenge of this century; its impact on dental care cannot be ignored. Dementia affects cognitive ability and decision making, so it is important that oral healthcare professionals are conversant with current mental capacity legislation and issues that may be raised when treatment planning for patients living with the condition. This second article in the series considers the impact of dementia on dental care provision and covers a range of issues which are relevant to both general and specialist prac...
