Diaphragmatic rapid shallow breathing index for predicting weaning outcome from mechanical ventilation: Comparison with traditional rapid shallow breathing index
Publication date: Available online 13 December 2018Source: Egyptian Journal of AnaesthesiaAuthor(s): Sherif M.S. Mowafy, Essam F. AbdelgalelAbstractBackgroundRapid shallow breathing index (RSBI) is a well-known weaning index. However; its diagnostic performance is less than satisfactory. Recently, diaphragmatic rapid shallow breathing index (DRSBI) is proposed as a promising tool in weaning outcome prediction. The aim of this study was to evaluate if DRSBI is more accurate than RSBI for weaning outcome prediction.Patients and methodsThis prospective, randomized clinical trial was carried out on 106 mechanically ventilated ...

Erector Spinae Block a safe, simple and effective analgesic technique for major hepatobiliary surgery with thrombocytopenia
Publication date: Available online 3 October 2018Source: Egyptian Journal of AnaesthesiaAuthor(s): Arshad Ayub, Praveen Talawar, Rakesh Kumar, Debesh Bhoi, Ajay Yadav SinghAbstractHepatobiliary surgeries are associated with severe pain, and coagulopathy. Adequate pain control is vital and difficult to achieve for these patients. Epidural analgesia is considered the routine standard technique for the management of both somatic and visceral pain from major abdominal surgeries until now. However, it is invasive, blind and carries the risk of dural or vascular puncture. Coagulopathy found in patients posted for hepatobiliary s...
