vvECMO in ARDS: should the EOLIA study results change our clinical approach?
This article discusses the primary and secondary results of the trial and the considerations emerged in the medical community. We will also discuss how ECMO could evolve to maximize lung protection rather than just prevent hypoxic death. PMID: 31124619 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Minerva Anestesiologica)

Injection pressures measuring for a safe peripheral nerve block.
Authors: Carassiti M, De Filippis A, Palermo P, Valenti C, Costa F, Massaroni C, Schena E Abstract The performance of a precise and safe peripheral nerve blockade (PNB) can currently rely on the aid of the ultrasounds and nerve stimulators. The injection pressure monitoring may be beneficial to perform a safer procedure. This review focuses on the pressures measured during PNB among studies conducted on animal, and human models. From a deep research among the PubMed/MEDLINE database for all reports published in English between January 2004 and November 2018, we selected 15 original papers. We excluded those that we...

The incidence of intraoperative gastric tube malposition verified by Point of Care Ultrasound.
CONCLUSIONS: In summary, we demonstrate that the incidence of malposition of blindly gastric tubes was 14%. Given the attendant risks of malpositioned gastric tubes, this data should inform decision algorithms for the blind placement of gastric tubes.

The pearls of pediatric sedation: polish the old and embrace the new.
Authors: Mason KP, Seth N Abstract Over the past decade, as the complexity and breadth of pediatric procedures increases, the actual choices of approved sedatives have remained relatively stagnant. Since the introduction of midazolam, there has not been a sedative approved for pediatric labelling until this past December. This December, the European approval of ADV6209 (Ozalin) for pediatric usage marked the newest addition to the pediatric sedative armamentarium in over a decade. This review is timely and significant because it will provide a balanced evaluation of the most common sedatives in use today, the most ...

A preoperative single dose of methadone for moderate-to-severely painful surgery reduces postoperative morphine consumption.
Authors: Bastian K, Buehler PK, Slizyte D, Rüst CA, Toft K, Studer W, Lecheler L, Aguirre J, Siegemund M, Hollinger A Abstract BACKGROUND: Data from patient questionnaires reveal that the intensity of postoperative pain is widely underestimated. Insufficient pain control may contribute to impaired short- and long-term outcome. Preoperative administration of methadone might potentially improve postoperative pain control due to its long pharmacological half-life. METHODS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a single dose of methadone administered at anesthesia induction on postoperative analg...

Interscalene brachial plexus catheter versus single-shot interscalene block with periarticular local infiltration analgesia for shoulder arthroplasty.
Authors: Bojaxhi E, Lumermann LA, Mazer LS, Howe BL, Ortiguera CJ, Clendenen SR Abstract BACKGROUND: Interscalene brachial plexus block is a commonly employed regional anesthetic technique for total shoulder arthroplasty, and a continuous catheter is often placed to extend the analgesic benefit of the block. As periarticular local infiltration analgesia (LIA) for total joint arthroplasty is a re-emerging trend, we evaluated the analgesic efficacy of continuous interscalene block (CISB) compared to single-shot interscalene block (SSISB) with LIA. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 130 consecutive pa...

Nowadays, bronchial measurements can be automated using dedicated software. The aim of this prospective monocentric study was to compare manual and automated measurements of the diameter of the trachea and both main bronchi in adult patients free from a history of lung surgery or disease. METHODS: Diameters of the trachea and of the main stem bronchi were measured by trained physicians or automatically using Th...

Ability of mini fluid challenge to predict fluid responsiveness in obese patients undergoing surgery in the prone position.
Authors: Ali A, Dorman Y, Abdullah T, Yasa C, Orhan Sungur M, Akinci IO, Ergin-Ozcan P Abstract BACKGROUND: Pulse pressure variation (PPV) and stroke volume variation (SVV) can predict fluid responsiveness effectively. However, high body mass index (BMI) can restrict their use due to changes in respiratory system compliance (CS), intra-abdominal pressure, and stroke volume (SV) in the prone position. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effectiveness of mini fluid challenge in predicting fluid responsiveness in obese (BMI ≥30 kg/m2) patients in the prone position. METHODS: A total of 33 patients undergoing...

Regional analgesia techniques for pain management in patients admitted to the intensive care unit.
Authors: Rubio-Haro R, Morales-Sarabia J, Ferrer-Gomez C, De Andrés J Abstract Controlling pain should be a priority in the clinical practice of intensive care units (ICUs). Monomodal analgesic approaches, such as the administration of opioids, are widely employed; however, the widespread use of opioids has catastrophic consequences, given their multiple side effects and the development of dependence. Regional analgesia (RA), with single or continuous dosing using neuraxial and peripheral catheters, can play an important role in multimodal analgesia for management of pain in critical care patients. RA provid...

Authors: Biancofiore G, Blasi A, De Boer MT, Franchini M, Hartmann M, Lisman T, Liumbruno GM, Porte R, Saner F, Senzolo M, Werner MJ Abstract Recent data demonstrated that amongst patients undergoing elective surgery the prevalence of cirrhosis is 0.8% equating to approximately 25 million cirrhotic patients undergoing surgery each year worldwide. Overall, the presence of cirrhosis is independently associated with 47% increased risk of postoperative complications and over two and a half increased risk of in-hospital mortality in patients undergoing elective surgery.

Monitoring of regional lung ventilation using electrical impedance tomography.
Authors: Vasques F, Sanderson B, Barrett NA, Camporota L Abstract Among recent lung imaging techniques and devices, electrical impedance tomography (EIT) can provide dynamic information on the distribution regional lung ventilation. EIT images possess a high temporal and functional resolution allowing the visualisation of dynamic physiological and pathological changes on a breath-by-breath basis. EIT detects changes in electric impedance (i.e., changes in gas/fluid ratio) and describes them in real time, both visually through images and waveforms, and numerically, allowing the clinician to monitor disease evolution...
