Erector spinae plane block as an alternative to epidural analgesia for post-operative analgesia following video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: A case study and a literature review on the spread of local anaesthetic in the erector spinae plane
Sanjib Das Adhikary, Ashlee Pruett, Mauricio Forero, Venkatesan ThiruvenkatarajanIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(1):75-78 Post-operative pain after minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in adults is commonly managed with oral and parenteral opioids and invasive regional techniques such as thoracic epidural blockade. Emerging research has shown that the novel erector spinae plane (ESP) block, can be employed as a simple and safe alternative analgesic technique for acute post-surgical, post-traumatic and chronic neuropathic thoracic pain in adults. We illustrate this by presenting a paediatric...

Undiagnosed intraoperative methaemoglobinaemia
Swapnil Verma, AK Sathpathy, U Srinivas, Sanath ReddyIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(1):72-74 Methaemoglobinaemia is a rare but potentially dangerous haemoglobinopathy that is often underdiagnosed. It is one of the causes for unexplained cyanosis with dark-coloured blood, especially in the absence of cardiac or pulmonary pathology. Not uncommonly so, it is an incidental perioperative finding in cases of dark-coloured blood not improving with oxygen in apparently acyanotic patients. The present case report is of a child with deaf-mutism posted for cochlear implant surgery who presented with 'chocolate-coloured bl...

Clinical trial registration: A practical perspective
S Bala BhaskarIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2018 62(1):10-15 The increase in the number of clinical trials, driven mainly for career advancement mandated by regulatory bodies such as Medical Council of India risks output of substandard publications and also wastage of resources. There are also concerns of inadequate reporting and wilful concealment of results. The quality and quantity of the output become questionable evidences for medical practice. Lack of transparency can lead to disillusionment of the public in the medical field. Clinical trials registration seeks to regulate and streamline the clinical trials by manda...

Revisiting the applicability of adult early post-operative nausea and vomiting risk factors for the paediatric patient: A prospective study using cotinine levels in children undergoing adenotonsillectomies
Conclusion: Early POV occurs frequently in paediatric patients undergoing adenotonsillectomies. In this paediatric-aged group, the incidence of POV was affected by the family history of PONV, and history of motion sickness. Age, female gender, opioid use, surgical and anaesthetic times did not affect the incidence of POV. ETS exposure, as assessed by cotinine levels and questionnaire reports, had no protective effect on early paediatric POV. (Source: Indian Journal of Anaesthesia)

The brain-dead donor: An anaesthesiologist & #39;s perspective
Vijay L Shetty, Shivaji S Mali, Sangeeta V Shetty, Prajakta D ShindeIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2017 61(12):952-956The brain-dead organ donation programme is slowly gathering momentum in India. There is a long way to go before our cadaver donor numbers, currently at 0.35 per million reaches 35 per million as is the case in countries like Spain. Each donor, therefore, has to be managed immaculately. The anaesthesiologists will be well served by familiarising themselves with the challenges during the crucial period preceding and during the actual harvest of organs in a brain-dead donor. There are significant opportunities ...
