I didn't realize anesthesiologists were surgeons

Just went to a skills lab and they divided us into small groups. Before beginning each skills session, when asked what your primary specialty was, if the person teaching the skill was from an anesthesiology background, more times than not if you answered something other than anesthesia, the proctor would say something similar to "Well I guess you didn't get any training in this in residency". This included a session on suturing after procedures such as SCS or pumps. Not saying all those... Read more

Conclusion: Taken together, our study indicates that combination of DXM and TMD effectively lowers blood pressure and reduces inflammation through increasing the level of IL-10, reducing CRP and inhibiting p-p38/MAPK in patients with PIH. This study suggests that the combination of DXM and TMD could be an anesthetic choice in the management of PIH.

Epidural analgesia is the ideal method to provide pain control in vaginal delivery. Horner syndrome is a rare complication of epidural analgesia. In pregnant women, Horner syndrome may be seen more frequently due to epidural analgesia. It is characterized by ptosis, myosis, enophthalmos, anisocoria, conjunctival hyperemia, flashing on the affected face and sweating record (anhydroz).

In this report, we present two patients with CEH who had TrPs in their upper trapezius muscles. Each patient received an ultrasound-guided interfascial block of the trapezius muscle. Case 1 A 79-year-old female patient presented with a complaint of headache due to trigger point in her upper trapezius muscle. Her Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) score for pain intensity was 10. We performed an ultrasound-guided interfascial block of the trapezius muscle. Her NRS score at 30 minutes after the procedure was 2. The patient was pain free during the two months follow-up period. Case 2 A 55-year-old female patient presented with a co...

AbstractThe best treatment modality for the management of painful temporomandibular disorders of muscular origin (M-TMD) with predictable outcomes based on solid evidence is still not well defined. Thus, the aim of this network meta-analysis (NMA) was to identify the best treatment for adult patients with M-TMD. An electronic search was undertaken from the inception of each database to August 2018, to identify randomized clinical trials (RCTs), which are comparing two or more of the following treatment modalities in patients with M-TMD: counseling therapy; occlusal appliances; manual therapy; laser therapy; dry needling; i...

AbstractLocal anaesthesia (LA) is the standard of care in adequate pain control during routine dental practice as well as minor oral surgery procedures. Thus, LA offers pain control and comfort to the patient, enabling the clinician to perform the scheduled procedure with confidence and patient safety. The present case report describes the rare complication of vocal cord paralysis following a lingual nerve block.
