Association between anaesthetic technique and unplanned admission to intensive care after thoracic lung resection surgery: the second Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care (ACTACC) National Audit
SummaryUnplanned intensive care admission is a devastating complication of lung resection and is associated with significantly increased mortality. We carried out a two‐year retrospective national multicentre cohort study to investigate the influence of anaesthetic and analgesic technique on the need for unplanned postoperative intensive care admission. All patients undergoing lung resection surgery in 16 thoracic surgical centres in the UK in the calendar years 2013 and 2014 were included....

The impact of pre‐operative intravenous iron on quality of life after colorectal cancer surgery: outcomes from the intravenous iron in colorectal cancer‐associated anaemia (IVICA) trial
SummaryAnaemia is associated with a reduction in quality of life, and is common in patients with colorectal cancer . We recently reported the findings of the intravenous iron in colorectal cancer‐associated anaemia (IVICA) trial comparing haemoglobin levels and transfusion requirements following intravenous or oral iron replacement in anaemic colorectal cancer patients undergoing elective surgery. In this follow‐up study, we compared the efficacy of intravenous and oral iron at improving...

Effect of body position on qualitative and quantitative ultrasound assessment of gastric fluid contents
SummaryWe assessed the impact of raising the upper section of the bed, and patient positioning, on ultrasound assessment of gastric fluid contents. We performed ultrasound examinations in 25 subjects lying on their back, left and right sides at bed angles of 0°, 30°, 45° and 90°; this was carried out while the subjects were fasted, and repeated 10 min after drinking ≥ 50 ml water. After drinking, gastric contents were detected more frequently in the 45° semirecumbent position compared with...

Analgesic efficacy of the Pecs II block: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
SummarySurgery is the primary therapeutic intervention for breast cancer and can result in significant postoperative pain. We searched the current literature and performed a meta‐analysis in order to compare the analgesic efficacy of the pectoral type‐2 (Pecs II) block with systemic analgesia alone and with a thoracic paravertebral block for breast cancer surgery. Primary outcome was postoperative opioid consumption in the first 24 h after surgery. Secondary outcomes were pain scores at 0,...

It requires sedation to facilitate the procedure, as it is painful and distressful. The preferred anesthetic drug must be short acting, producing conscious sedation, to enable rapid recovery after the procedure. In this sense, this narrative review...

Terlipressin versus norepinephrine to prevent milrinone-induced systemic vascular hypotension in cardiac surgery patient with pulmonary hypertension
Mai Mohsen Abdelazziz, Hadil Magdi AbdelhamidAnnals of Cardiac Anaesthesia 2019 22(2):136-142 Introduction: Milrinone at inotropic doses requires the addition of a vasoconstrictive drug. We hypothesized that terlipressin use could selectively recover the systemic vascular hypotension induced by milrinone without increasing the pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) as norepinephrine in cardiac surgery patients. Patients and Methods: Patients with pulmonary...
