Propofol versus midazolam for premedication. A placebo-controlled, randomized double-blinded study.
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that a 20mg IV dose of propofol would be more effective than a standard 2mg IV dose of midazolam for reducing acute anxiety prior to induction of anesthesia. METHODS: 120 outpatients scheduled to undergo orthopedic surgery were randomly assigned to one of three study groups: Control (Saline); Propofol (20mg); or Midazolam (2mg). Immediately before administering the study medication, each patient evaluated their level of acute anxiety and sedation on 11-point verbal rating scales (VRSs) 0=none- 10=highest, and they were also shown a picture. Upon arrival in the OR ~5 min af...

Targeting blood products transfusion in trauma: what is the role of thromboelastography?
Authors: Figueiredo S, Tantot A, Duranteau J Abstract Viscoelastic haemostatic assays (VHAs), mainly thromboelastography (TEG) and the rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM), provide global information on clot formation and dissolution at patient bedside, allowing fast identification of coagulation disorders. In trauma patients, VHAs are able to predict massive transfusion and mortality. These devices might also be used for applying targeted administration of procoagulant factors (e.g. fibrinogen concentrate) as an alternative to or in addition to using predefined fixed ratios of red blood cells: platelets: fresh fr...

Influence of supraglottic airway device placement on cerebral hemodynamics.
CONCLUSIONS: SGD insertion and cuff inflation did not influence cerebral hemodynamics in anesthetized patients undergoing minor surgery.

Evaluation of the efficacy of solifenacin and darifenacin for prevention of catheter-related bladder discomfort: a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study.
Authors: Srivastava VK, Nigam R, Agrawal S, Kumar S, Rambhad S, Kanaskar J Abstract BACKGROUND: Urinary catheterization during surgical interventions causes postoperative catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD). Antimuscarinic agents are the mainstay of treatment for overactive bladder (OAB). As the symptoms of CRBD mimic to OAB, so we designed this study to assess the efficacy of solifenacin and darifenacin for prevention of CRBD. METHODS: Ninety patients of either sex undergoing elective spine surgery and requiring urinary catheterization were randomly assigned into three groups to receive oral solifenacin...

Hypnosis and anesthesia: back to the future.
Authors: Facco E Abstract Hypnosis is a physiological mind activity characterized by focused attention, absorption, dissociation and plastic imagination. In the early 19th century, several hundred surgical interventions were described with hypnosis as the sole anesthetic, in an epoch when no anesthetic drugs were available; then hypnosis was prejudicially abandoned and forgotten after their introduction. In the past two decades, an increasing number of studies on hypnosis has shown its capacity to modify the activity of the prefrontal cortex, default mode network and pain neuromatrix (including the anterior cingula...

The effects of minimal-dose versus low-dose S-ketamine on opioid consumption, hyperalgesia, and postoperative delirium: a triple-blinded, randomized, active- and placebo-controlled clinical trial.
CONCLUSIONS: Our data demonstrate that minimal-dose S-ketamine was comparable to the conventional low-dose regimen in reducing postoperative opioid consumption and hyperalgesia. Postoperative delirium, however, was less frequent with the minimal-dose regimen. We therefore suggest that minimal-dose S-ketamine may be a useful low-risk component of balanced perioperative analgesia.

Utilizing bi-spectral index (BIS) for the monitoring of sedated adult ICU patients: a systematic review.
CONCLUSIONS: BIS monitoring in the mechanically ventilated ICU patient may decrease sedative drug dose, recall, and time to wake-up. The studies suggesting this are severely limited methodologically. BIS, when compared to subjective CSSs, is not, at this time, clearly indicated. An appropriately powered randomized, controlled study is needed to determine if this monitoring modality is of use on the ICU.

Biological markers of injury-induced immunosuppression.
Authors: Rouget C, Girardot T, Textoris J, Monneret G, RIMMELé T, Venet F Abstract Severe injuries such as severe sepsis, burn, trauma and major surgery lead to an overlapping development of pro- and anti- inflammatory responses. It is now well established that these injuries are associated with the secondary development of immune suppression, which results in significant morbidity and mortality. Recent data suggest that immunostimulatory drugs might prevent these complications. However, intensive care patients are heterogeneous, making patient stratification essential for a targeted treatment. In the presen...
