Management of anaesthesia and intensive care for acute ischemic insult.

[Management of anaesthesia and intensive care for acute ischemic insult]. Anasthesiol Intensivmed Notfallmed Schmerzther. 2014 Jun;49(6):406-13 Authors: Wiedemann D, Strang C, Ebmeyer U, Hachenberg T Abstract The acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is a major cause of death and disability in Germany. The treatment of patients withAIS focuses on rapid recanalization of close brain vessels. Anaesthesiologists are likely to encounter patients with AIS and must be aware of the anaesthetic considerations for these patients. The advantage and risk of general anaesthesia during a neuroradiology procedure is shown. We make recommendations for blood pressure, blood glucose and temperature management.

Abstract Acute ischemic stroke is a neurological emergency with a high likelihood of morbidity, mortality, and long-term disability. Modern stroke care involves multidisciplinary management by neurologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, and anesthesiologists. Current American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) guidelines recommend thrombolytic therapy with intravenous (IV) alteplase within the first 3-4.5 hours of initial stroke symptoms and endovascular mechanical thrombectomy within the first 16-24 hours depending on specific inclusion criteria. The anesthesia and critical care provider may b...

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Christopher J. TaylorAbstractIntracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) accounts for around 10–20% of all strokes and results from a variety of disorders. ICH is more likely to result in death or major disability than ischaemic stroke or subarachnoid haemorrhage. Rapid imaging allows early diagnosis and characterization of the localization and severity of the haemorrhage. Patients with significant acute ICH should be managed in a critical care unit. Treatment entails general supportive care, control of blood pressure an...

Janovák L, Dékány I, Farkas E, Bari F Abstract Stroke is an important cause of mortality and disability. Treatment options are limited, therefore the progress in this regard is urgently needed. Nimodipine, an L-type voltage-gated calcium channel antagonist dilates cerebral arterioles, but its systemic administration may cause potential side effects. We have previously constructed chitosan nanoparticles as drug carriers, which release nimodipine in response to decreasing pH typical of cerebral ischemia. Here we have set out to evaluate this nanomedical approach to deliver nimodipine selectivel...

In this study, changes in the bio-impedance spectroscopy using a two-electrode method with varying frequencies from 100 to 35  kHz have been assessed in a model of global cerebral ischemia in anesthetized rats during normal, occlusion and reperfusion conditions. Global cerebral ischemia was induced by bilateral common carotid artery occlusion for 40  min following 40 min of reperfusion. The concentration of sodium, potassium, calcium and chloride ions in the whole rat brain was determined by electrolyte analyzer. For the interpretation of in vivo results, changes in electrical impedance with vary...

Abstract Early recanalization of the closed cerebral arteries after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is the only treatment to minimize long-term disability and to reduce the associated morbidity and mortality. For a long time the only proven causal treatment of AIS was intravenous thrombolysis; however, after the publication of a series of randomized prospective studies concerning endovascular mechanical thrombectomy using stent retriever systems after AIS, new guidelines were published. It was found that endovascular treatment (EVT) dramatically improves the outcome of eligible patients. The stent retriever ...

Research led by a UCLA scientist found that a new nerve stimulation therapy to increase blood flow could help patients with the most common type of stroke up to 24 hours after onset.A study of 1,000 patients found evidence that the technique, called active nerve cell cluster stimulation, reduced the patients ’ degree of disability three months after they suffered an acute cortical ischemic stroke, which affects the surface of the brain.Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of theUCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center, was the co-principal investigator of the study, which was conducted at 73 medical centers in 18 countries.“We ...

Conclusion: Using three different strategies to either prevent formation or enhance elimination of O2⋅_ during the post-asphyxial period, we saw both reduced leukocyte adherence and preserved BBB function with treatment. These findings suggest that agents which lower O2⋅_ in brain may be attractive new therapeutic interventions for the protection of the neonatal brain following asphyxia. Introduction Asphyxia is a relatively common source of neonatal brain damage (1), affecting ~2 in every 1,000 births (2). The hypoxic ischemia resulting from this oxygen deprivation can produce long-term sequelae, includi...
