BACKGROUND: We investigated the effects of maintaining beta-blockers on the day of surgery on the incidence of atrial fibrillation and postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS: We conducted a multicentre prospective observational study with propensity matching on patients treated with beta-blockers. We collected their baseline patient characteristics, comorbidities, and operative and postoperative outcomes. The endpoints were postoperative atrial fibrillation and AKI after cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: Within the perioperative period, depression-related diagnoses are associated with postoperative complications. We developed a perioperative depression screening programme to assess disease prevalence and feasibility for intervention. METHODS: Adult patients in multiple surgical departments at a single academic centre were screened for depression via the electronic health record patient portal or preoperative anaesthesia clinic before surgery, using the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ)-2 and -8...

REVIEW
Eric Albrecht, Yves Renard, Neel Desai
BACKGROUND: The efficacy of perineural vs intravenous dexamethasone as a local anaesthetic adjunct to increase duration of analgesia could be particular to specific peripheral nerve blocks because of differences in systemic absorption depending on the injection site. Given this uncertainty, we performed a systematic review with meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis comparing dexamethasone administered perineurally or intravenously combined with local anaesthetic for interscalene brachial plexus block...

BACKGROUND: The occurrence of hypotension after induction of general anaesthesia is common in geriatric patients, and should be prevented to minimise perioperative complications. Compared with propofol, remimazolam potentially has a lower incidence of hypotension. This study aimed to compare the incidence of hypotension after general anaesthesia induction with remimazolam or propofol in geriatric patients. METHODS: This single-centre, double-blind, randomised trial enrolled 90 patients aged ≥80 yr who received general anaesthesia for scheduled surgery...

BACKGROUND: Hip replacement surgery can be painful; postoperative analgesia is crucial for comfort and to facilitate recovery. Regional anaesthesia can reduce pain and postoperative opioid requirements. The role of ultrasound-guided suprainguinal fascia iliaca block for analgesia after elective total hip arthroplasty is not well defined. This randomised trial evaluated its analgesic efficacy. METHODS: Consenting participants (134) scheduled for elective primary total hip arthroplasty under spinal anaesthesia were randomly allocated to receive ultrasound-guided fascia iliaca block with ropivacaine 0...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus is a significant modulator of postoperative outcomes and is an important risk factor in the patient selection process. We aimed to investigate the effect of diabetes mellitus and use of insulin on outcomes after colorectal resection using a national cohort. METHODS: Adults with a recorded colorectal resection in England between 2010 and 2020 were identified from Hospital Episode Statistics data linked to the Clinical Practice Research Database...

Throughout its 100-yr history, a key ambition of the British Journal of Anaesthesia has been to foster our academic community by addressing the needs of individuals in the early stages of their independent clinical and research careers. Longitudinal mentoring and peer networking are critical for establishing a community of like-minded peers and mentor-advisors required to navigate the challenges of academic medicine. In 2019, the Journal launched an Editorial Fellowship scheme, aimed at comprehensively demystifying the process of peer review, editing, and publishing through guided mentorship and experiential learning...

EDITORIAL
D Norman Buckley, W Scott Beattie
Reductionist thinking results in the bulk of anaesthesia trial designs being a single intervention to address what are in fact complex processes. The Perioperative Administration of Dexamethasone and Infection (PADDI) trial assessed the safety of a single preoperative dose of dexamethasone. Surprising to most, in the original report, a single dose of dexamethasone increased the incidence of the secondary outcome chronic postsurgical pain. Was this a chance finding or does dexamethasone increase chronic postsurgical pain? In an attempt to address this question, the PADDI investigators have now analysed this prespecified secondary outcome in two ways: as a substudy published earlier in this Journal, and as a retrospective analysis of the ENIGMA-II chronic pain database in this issue of the Journal...

BACKGROUND: Surgical risk stratification is crucial for enhancing perioperative assistance and allocating resources efficiently. However, existing models may not capture the complexity of surgical care in Brazil. Using data from various healthcare settings nationwide, we developed a new risk model for 30-day in-hospital mortality (the Ex-Care BR model). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 10 hospitals from different geographic regions in Brazil...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: The 7th National Audit Project of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (NAP7) recommended that an emergency call system be immediately accessible in all anaesthesia locations. It is essential that all theatre team members can rapidly call for help to reduce the risk of patient harm. However, the ability of staff to activate this system in a timely manner can be affected by cluttered or unfamiliar environments and cognitive overload. One proposed strategy to enable rapid identification and activation of emergency call systems is to install a red vertical painted stripe on the wall from the ceiling to the activation button...
