Beware of Off-Label Use of Wingspan Stent
Off-label medical device use is a tricky subject and one that has been at the center of many heated debates. It is strictly against the law for manufacturers to promote their products for off-label use, however, physicians have the discretion to use a device in an off-label manner if such use might be beneficial to the patient. Sometimes, however, FDA does try to intervene if the off-label use of a particular device raises a concern about patient safety. Case in point, Stryker's Wingspan Stent System. Approved in 2005 under a Humanitarian Device Exemption, the Wingspan has provoked advoc...

Neuroprotective Effects of Targeted Temperature Management
Hypothermia has a number of potential neuroprotective effects; however, they can be broken down into two main properties: metabolic and neuronal protection. When mammals hibernate, they experience acidosis both from lactate and carbon dioxide, resulting in hypoxia and hypoglycemia. These conditions are not unlike those that occur post-cardiac arrest: Hypothermia decreases metabolic rate by about 6% per 1 degree C reduction in brain temperature. If blood flow and demand are coupled, it’s possible to see a 50% decline in cerebral metabolic after cooling the brain to 32 degrees C. The protective effects occur via reduct...

The overall aims of neuromonitoring are to identify worsening neurological function and secondary cerebral insults that may benefit from specific treatment(s) and improve pathophysiological understanding of cerebral disease in critical illness, to provide clear physiological data to guide and individualize therapy, as well as assist with neuroprognostication. It’s not a novel concept to directly monitor the organ of interest to direct and assess therapies.
