Clinical standards for patient blood management and perioperative hemostasis and coagulation management position paper of the Italian Society of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care (SIAARTI).
Authors: Cinnella G, Pavesi M, De Gasperi A, Ranucci M, Mirabella L Abstract Patient blood management is currently defined as the application of evidence based medical and surgical concepts designed to maintain hemoglobin (Hb), optimize hemostasis and minimize blood loss to improve patient outcome. Blood management focus on the perioperative management of patients undergoing surgery or other invasive procedures in which significant blood loss occurs or is expected. Preventive strategies are emphasized to identify and manage anemia, reduce iatrogenic blood losses, optimize hemostasis (e.g. pharmacologic therapy, and...

Inhalation versus intravenous anesthesia for adults undergoing heart valve surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Among patients undergoing heart valve surgery, the use of inhalation anesthesia compared with TIVA failed to demonstrate superiority for survival and major postoperative complications and the evidence was insufficient to draw firm conclusions due to the limited sample size. A determination of equivalence or superiority between these two anesthetic regimens requires further researches. PMID: 30762324 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Minerva Anestesiologica)

Patient-ventilator asynchrony in adult critically ill patients.
Authors: Bruni A, Garofalo E, Pelaia C, Messina A, Cammarota G, Murabito P, Corrado S, Vetrugno L, Longhini F, Navalesi P Abstract Patient-ventilator asynchrony is considered as a major clinical problem for mechanically ventilated patients. It occurs during partial ventilatory support, when the respiratory muscles and the ventilator interact to contribute generating the volume output. In this review article, we consider all studies published on patient-ventilator asynchrony in the last 25 years. We selected 62 studies. The different forms of asynchrony are first defined and classified. We also describe the methods ...

Acute pain management in trauma: anatomy, ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks and special considerations.
Authors: Saranteas T, Koliantzaki I, Savvidou O, Tsoumpa M, Eustathiou G, Kontogeorgakos V, Souvaltzoglou R Abstract Pain is the most common complaint amongst trauma patients throughout the perioperative period. Multimodal analgesia is currently being regarded the mainstay, with regional anesthesia techniques constituting an integral part of it. Ultrasound imaging techniques display a plethora of advantages that have pervaded regional anesthesia practice. In this review, we set out to provide several examples of injuries, to elucidate the precise anatomy of fractured bones (osteotomes), and to elaborate on certain ...

Intraoperative monitoring of nociception for opioid administration: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
CONCLUSIONS: Nociception monitoring devices seem to have an advantage over standard clinical practice on intraoperative management of analgesia during general anesthesia. Future research should focus on identifying appropriate indicators to objectively assess the degree of pain in children and perform large-scale multicenter trials to prove clinical advantages of nociception measurements during propofol anesthesia.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on the low-level of available evidence, no conclusions can be drawn regarding the efficacy and safety of blood purification in children.

What have we learned from network meta-analysis applied to critical care? A narrative review.
CONCLUSIONS: NMA is an established, robust, objective and reproducible statistic technique that has been applied to several critical care areas. Clinical practice guidelines have started to include MNA evidence to support their recommendations. In future years, it seems highly probable that this technique will increase it applicability in almost all areas of critical care medicine.

Early dysglycemia and mortality in traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Authors: Pappacena S, Bailey M, Cabrini L, Landoni G, Udy A, Pilcher DV, Young P, Bellomo R Abstract BACKGROUND: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Sub-Arachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH) are the most common causes of severe acute brain injury in younger Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients. Dysglycemia (abnormal peak glycemia, glycemic variability, mean glycemia, nadir glycemia) is common in these patients but its comparative outcome associations are unclear. METHODS: In a retrospective, cross-sectional, study of adults admitted to Australian and New Zealand ICUs with TBI and SAH (TBI&SAH) from 2005 to 2015, we studied...

Coronary angiogram after cardiac arrest? Reasonably and sensibly.
Authors: Bougouin W, Piazza O, Dumas F, Baldi C, Cariou A, De Robertis E Abstract The role of emergency coronary angiography after cardiac arrest and return of spontaneous circulation is not yet completely clear. While patients with a high risk of acute coronary lesion and with a presumed favourable neurological outcome should undergo a coronary angiography as soon as possible, the decision to perform it is questionable in patients who are less likely to have a coronary cause of arrest, and when clinical characteristics raise serious concerns regarding neurological outcome. In this paper, the Authors analyse the ma...

Frequency, predictive factors and therapy of Emergence Delirium: data from a large observational clinical trial in a broad spectrum of postoperative pediatric patients.
In this study, we seek to obtain a better understanding of the frequency of ED and different therapeutic approaches, making use of the large amount of patients in our university hospital. METHODS: After approval by the local ethics committee, patients aged zero to 13 years, who were treated in the post anesthesia care of our hospital, were investigated in this observational study. ED was diagnosed on basis of a clinical evaluation as well as with the Pediatric Anesthesia Emergence Delirium (PAED) Scale. RESULTS: In 86 of 821 patients a PAED-Score ≥ 10 and therefore an ED was detected (10.5%). Based on clinical a...

Post dural puncture headache: a review of the literature.
Authors: Buddeberg BS, Bandschapp O, Girard T Abstract Neuraxial analgesia and anaesthesia are widely used in obstetric anaesthesia. The most frequent complication after neuraxial blocks is post dural puncture headache. It can occur after unintentional dural puncture during epidural procedures or after spinal anaesthesia. Unintentional dural puncture occurs in 0.15-1.5% of labour epidural analgesia and 50-80% of these women develop post dural puncture headache. The headache is typically orthostatic in nature and can be so incapacitating that the mother becomes bedbound and is no longer able to care for herself and ...

Comparison of surgical pleth index guided analgesia using fentanyl versus conventional analgesia technique in laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Authors: Jain N, Gera A, Sharma B, Sood J, Chugh P Abstract BACKGROUND: Surgical pleth index (SPI) is an objective index and reflects the patient's nociception-antinociception balance during surgery. There are few studies on clinical implication of use of SPI in laparoscopic surgery. The aim of this study was to compare fentanyl requirement using SPI guided administration versus conventional analgesia technique in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS: 140 patients of ASA physical status I and II, scheduled to undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy were randomly allocated to SPI group and control group. In SPI gr...
