Fatal pulmonary hemorrhage due to severe mitral regurgitation during venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
We report a case of fatal PH during VA-ECMO for cardiogenic shock after myocardial infarction (MI). PH, in this case, was secondary to a triad of aortic insufficiency, left ventricle distension, and severe laminar mitral regurgitation. This case scenario, previously unreported in adults, illustrates the need for the echocardiographic assessment of left-sided heart valves prior to VA-ECMO initiation after MI as well as management considerations for massive PH in this context.

Bilevel positive airway pressure therapy in a patient with myotonic dystrophy and postoperative respiratory failure: A case report
We report the case of a 59-year-old woman with MD who underwent open cholecystectomy and developed postoperative respiratory failure. Without reintubation, the patient was successfully managed with bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) and was discharged uneventfully. BiPAP may be considered as an alternative for postoperative respiratory failure in patients with MD. Careful observation of patients' postoperative condition and an earlier application of BiPAP are instrumental in avoiding retracheal intubation, which may cause further serious problems in patients with MD.

We report a case of accidental administration of 100 mg of succinylcholine via an epidural catheter as a test dose instead of 2 ml 0.5% bupivacaine in a patient planned for major abdominal surgery. After 2 min, the patient complained of shortness of breath; dysarthria; and fasciculation in the trunk, upper limbs, and face. This was managed with induction to general anesthesia (GA). In the postoperative period, no neurological or cardiovascular complications were observed. There is no adequate drug as an antidote of accidentally given nonepidural drugs via an epidural catheter.

Epidural catheter retention is a rare complication; its etiology may come from lateral migration with kinking of the catheter or from involvement with bone, ligamentous, muscular, vascular structures, or nerve roots. Up until today, there is not a standard approach to this complication; however, there are some recommendations for the management of retained epidural cath...

Ultrasound-guided bilateral parasternal block: A boon for managing pain after sternal fracture/dislocation
Sandeep Diwan, Abhijit NairSaudi Journal of Anaesthesia 2020 14(2):224-227 Sternal fractures are high velocity injuries which is associated with thoracic or lumbar vertebral fractures. Severe pain associated with sternal fractures can lead to impaired ventilation, low partial pressure of arterial oxygen, need of non-invasive or invasive ventilation with an endotracheal tube thereby leading to significant morbidity. In a series of three patients with manubrium sternal dislocation, we administered continuous bilateral parasternal blocks and initiated infusion of local anesthetics for different periods of time in all patient...

The extravasation by massive transfused blood results in the elevation of intra-compartmental pressures. Severely increased pressure may lead to acute compartment syndrome (ACS).

During intraoperative periods, the blood components were transfused by rapid transfusion device and manual pressurized pumping through the central and peripheral lines bec...

Anesthetic care for patients with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis
Discussion: Multisystem involvement in anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis includes memory loss, behavior irregularity, psychosis, arrhythmias, blood pressure (BP) instability, and hypoventilation. In our study cohort, we noted no intraoperative issues and deterioration in clinical status following the use of volatile anesthetic agents, opioids, dexmedetomidine, and propofol for general anesthesia (GA) or sedation. As ketamine, xenon, and N2O mediate their anesthetic effects, primarily, through antagonism of NMDA receptors, theoretical concerns suggest that they should be avoided.

Conclusions: Discussing anesthetic forms preoperatively can help decrease patients' anxiety. More efforts should be made preoperatively to address patients' high level of fear about rare side effects and discuss common side effects they tend to ignore. Preoperative preparation must allow the anesthesiologists enough time to reassure patients about their concerns, as they obtain patients' informed consent. (Source: Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia)

Blood pressure measurements during intraoperative pediatric scoliosis surgery
Conclusions: Blood pressure is only one of the measures anesthesiologists look to for good perfusion during surgery. Pediatric anesthesiologists and orthopedics agree in trying tight blood pressure control during surgery to decrease blood loss, but what the exact definition of that blood pressure number is, is still unclear. We propose that using mean arterial pressure less than 60 mmHg is perhaps a better definition. We provide recommendations for future studies. (Source: Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia)
