Efficacy and safety of erythropoietin and iron therapy to reduce red blood cell transfusion in surgical patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSION: Administration of ESA and iron therapy reduced the risk for RBC transfusion compared with iron therapy alone in patients undergoing cardiac and non-cardiac surgery. Nevertheless, publication bias and heterogeneity reduces the confidence of the finding. Although the analysis was probably under-powered for some outcomes, no difference in the incidence of serious adverse events was observed with ESA and iron compared with iron alone. Further large prospective trials are required to confirm these findings. PMID: 30924000 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Canadian Journal of Anaesthesia)

Investigation into spinal anesthetic failure with hyperbaric bupivacaine: the role of cold exposure on bupivacaine degradation.
CONCLUSIONS: Canadian clinical practice and handling of hyperbaric bupivacaine is consistent. Most respondents indicated an interest in a formal reporting and collection process. Cold exposure did not degrade bupivacaine. A complex and possibly inconsistent reaction involving dextrose was identified that requires further analysis of a larger sample size to elucidate the mechanisms.

The incidence, significance, and management of accidental intra-arterial injection: a narrative review.
Abstract This narrative review discusses the incidence, risk factors, mechanisms of injury, complications, and treatment regimens for accidental intra-arterial injection of medications. Despite awareness of the issue and the establishment of safety recommendations by national agencies, accidental iatrogenic intra-arterial injection of medications continues to occur. Most of these injuries are caused by accidental injection into an established arterial cannula or the inadvertent and unrecognized cannulation of an artery instead of a vein. Although many medications have been injected into arteries without significan...

A basic anesthesia training program for nurses in Chad: first steps for a south-south academic cooperation program.
CONCLUSIONS: This is a novel south-south academic cooperation program for nurses in Chad. The program evaluation indicated a high level of satisfaction, effective cognitive and skills learning, and changes in clinical behaviour. Addressing the lack of adequate provision of anesthesia care is a task still to be faced, and this program depicts a bridge alternative until formal educational programs are implemented in the country.

Right upper lobe anatomy revisited: a computed tomography scan study.
The objectives of this study were to validate an alternative method to estimate the RMSB length, and to determine the distribution of the angulation of the ostium of the RULB. METHODS: From high-resolution computed tomography scans of the thorax of 106 consecutive patients, the length of the RMSB was measured using Kim's method and the carina-to-carina method. The angle between the RULB origin and the lateral aspect of the RMSB was also measured. All these measurements were correlated and inter-observer variation documented. RESULTS: From the Kim's method, the mean (standard deviation [SD]) length of the RMSB was...

Anesthetic technique and cancer outcomes: a meta-analysis of total intravenous versus volatile anesthesia.
Abstract PURPOSE: Cancer-related mortality, a leading cause of death worldwide, is often the result of metastatic disease recurrence. Anesthetic techniques have varying effects on innate and cellular immunity, activation of adrenergic-inflammatory pathways, and activation of cancer-promoting cellular signaling pathways; these effects may translate into an influence of anesthetic technique on long-term cancer outcomes. To further analyze the effects of propofol (intravenous) and volatile (inhalational gas) anesthesia on cancer recurrence and survival, we undertook a systematic review with meta-analysis. SOURCE...

Matching design to use: a task analysis comparison of three cognitive aid designs used during simulated crisis management.
Abstract PURPOSE: Intraoperative critical events typically include vital sign instability that requires a specific and time-sensitive response. Although cognitive aids can improve clinical performance during critical events, their design may not be optimized for real-world use. For example, during a critical event, health practitioners may be familiar with the treatment pathway and only require specific information from an aid-a behaviour described as "sampling". We hypothesized that use of cognitive aids designed to facilitate sampling behaviour would reduce the time required to extract information duri...

This study aimed to investigate if the Panda versions of these two pain scales are equivalent to the paper versions in adult patients. METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized, cross-over-controlled trial of subjects aged 19-75 yr undergoing procedures with anticipated post-surgical pain. Each subject used both the Panda and paper versions of VAS-100 or NRS-11 pain scores after emergence from anesthesia and after meeting postanesthesia care unit (PACU) discharge criteria. Correlations between the two tools were analyzed, and Bland-Altman agreement was calculated. The smartphone and paper versions were considered eq...

Synopsis of the point-of-care ultrasound assessment for perioperative emergencies.
Abstract This module will introduce the concept of a point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) examination for perioperative clinicians. A focused cardiac examination of ventricular filling and function is presented. An examination of the inferior vena cava is also reviewed as a tool to assess volume status. Finally, a brief examination of the lung and pleura is explored to aid the clinician in situations of patient hypoxia and difficult ventilation. Limited ultrasound cardiorespiratory examinations can be performed by non-cardiologists and non-radiologists. Information drawn from POCUS may aid in diagnosis and early rescu...
