The anesthetic effects of MS-222 (tricaine methanesulfonate) on some hematological parameters of sterlet, Acipenser ruthenus

In this study, we investigated the effects of MS-222 as an anesthetic on hematological parameters including hemoglobin (Hb), erythrocyte number (RBCs), hematocrit (Hct), and white blood cells (WBCs) in sterlet, Acipenser ruthenus. For this purpose, the hematological parameters were assessed immediately and 24 h after anesthesia. The results showed that despite no mortality occurred after anesthesia in 5 mg/l MS-222, this chemical substance influenced some hematological parameters. The values of Hb, Hct, and RBCs decreased. Immediately after anesthesia, these values increased significantly 24 h after anesthesia. The WBC concentrations did not show significant changes immediately after anesthesia, while its values decreased significantly 24 h after exposure. Our results showed that MS-222 induces some physiological alternations in level of hematological indices. Understanding on these alternations in fish may help to improve management and animal welfare.

This study compares the postoperative pain and opioid use in patients managed for surgery with general anesthesia (GA) with patients who were given combined epidural and general anesthesia (E/GA) with continuing postoperative epidural analgesia. Methods All patients who underwent penile inversion vaginoplasty between May of 2016 and May of 2018 under the care of single surgeon were identified retrospectively, 18 patients of which met the inclusion criteria. A retrospective chart review was conducted. Outcome measures were postoperative pain using visual analog scale, type and dosage of postoperatively administered intra...

Conclusions Continuous or intermittent wound infusion is safe and effective in reducing pain scores and opioid consumption in plastic surgery. Though the overall pain-lowering effect appears to be modest, ease of catheter insertion and patient satisfaction make this technique an alluring alternative to more validated approaches such as neuraxial or peripheral nerve blocks.

In conclusion, the diagnosis of hypoperfusion/microcirculatory abnormalities in peripheral non-vital organs was associated with increased mortality. However, additional studies must be undertaken to verify if this association can be considered a marker of the gravity or a trigger factor for organ failure in sepsis.ResumoEmbora evidências crescentes apoiem a monitorização da perfusão periférica em pacientes sépticos, nenhuma revisão sistemática foi realizada para explorar a força da associação entre a má perfusão avaliada na microcircu...

Tendinopathy affects also middle-aged overweight patients with no history of increased physical activity. Tendinopathy is the result of a chronic failure of healing response. Several conservative therapeutic options have been proposed.The management of tendinopathy is primarily conservative, and many patients respond to such measures. Eccentric exercises and shock wave therapy provide promising excellent clinical results. H...

Conclusion: This is the first description of the critical nontechnical skills, and associated example behaviors, used by surgeons in a VRC to overcome common challenges to safe and effective surgical patient care. Improvements in the NTS used by surgeons operating in VRCs have the potential to improve surgical care delivery worldwide.

Hello fellows It is me Amir, an Iraqi American who lives in Baghdad and currently I am in my second year of residency in Anesthesia and Critical Care aka CA1. (see my old threads) Few days ago, they announced the grades of our Primary aka PGY1 exams of the Iraqi Board in Anaesthesia and Critical Care (we had two exams, first day "short assays" and second day was MCQs) and was held on last October. The good news is, that I passed the exam within the top 5 of my class (Only 34 passed out... Long time no see, I am back SDN Anesthesiologists
