PURPOSE: Lung deflation during one-lung ventilation (OLV) is thought to be faster using a double-lumen endotracheal tube (DL-ETT) than with a bronchial blocker, especially when the non-ventilated lumen is opened to allow egress of air from the operative lung. Nevertheless, ambient air can also be entrained into the non-ventilated lumen before pleural opening and subsequently delay deflation. We therefore hypothesized that occluding the non-ventilated DL-ETT lumen during OLV before pleural opening would prevent air entrainment and consequently enhance operative lung deflation during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)...

PURPOSE: Intraoperative nerve dysfunction has been difficult to investigate because of its rarity and unpredictable occurrence. The diagnostic test attributes of nerve function monitors have not been clearly defined. This proof-of-concept study aimed to assess the feasibility of using brachial plexus blockade (BPB) in awake patients as an experimental model for nerve dysfunction to characterize the diagnostic test attributes of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs). METHODS: We obtained baseline SSEPs and neurologic function in patients and subsequently placed BPBs (experimental model) to generate progressive states of nerve dysfunction...

PURPOSE: Clinical practice guidelines are developed to provide physicians with appraised scientific evidence and enhance their medical decision-making process. Poorly developed guidelines can have a negative impact on patient care, but the quality of clinical guidelines has not been evaluated in anesthesiology practice. METHODS: We evaluated the quality of clinical practice guidelines in anesthesiology retrieved from PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane Library, and Embase databases from August 2013 to August 2018 using a validated appraisal instrument...

PURPOSE: Family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) has been widely endorsed. Nevertheless, there is limited information available on current education and training used to support FPDR implementation, including that of relevant policy. Understanding the current state of FPDR educational opportunities, policies, and practices across Canadian hospitals is crucial to advancing and standardizing these within our medical community. Our objective was to identify the current and desired state of education and policy on FPDR, as well as current practices and opinions of Canadian healthcare professionals...

BACKGROUND: Unilateral diaphragm paralysis (UDP) may potentially worsen sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). Unilateral diaphragm paralysis has been associated with proximal brachial plexus blockade, such as interscalene and supraclavicular block. The impact of UDP in patients with SDB is not known in this context. The objectives of this scoping review were to explore the associations between UDP and worsening SDB severity, oxygenation, and pulmonary function. METHODS: A systematic search was developed, peer-reviewed, and applied to Embase, Medline, CINAHL, and Cochrane databases to include studies involving adult patients (≥ 18 yr) with SDB, where the effects of UDP on SDB severity, oxygenation, and pulmonary function were examined...

PURPOSE: A growing body of evidence has shown that supervisors may "fail to fail" trainees even when they have judged their performance unsatisfactory. This has significant implications for the implementation of a nationwide competency-based education model of residency training. The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of "failing to fail" clearly underperforming residents. METHODS: Study participants were recruited via an email invitation sent to all departments of anesthesia at each of the hospitals affiliated with the University of Toronto...

PURPOSE: Intranasal insulin administration may improve cognitive function in patients with dementia and may prevent cognitive problems after surgery. Although the metabolic effects of intranasal insulin in non-surgical patients have been studied, its influence on glucose concentration during surgery is unknown. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-contolled trial in patients scheduled for elective cardiac surgery. Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and non-T2DM patients were randomly allocated to one of three groups (normal saline, 40 international units [IU] of intranasal insulin, and 80 IU intranasal insulin)...

PURPOSE: The Apfel simplified risk score, developed in 1999, is the most widely used tool for risk stratification of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). It includes four risk factors: female sex, non-smoking status, history of PONV or motion sickness, and use of postoperative opioids. Nevertheless, there is considerable heterogeneity in the definition and application of these risk factors in PONV research. Our aim was to determine how these risk factors are implemented in studies employing the Apfel score...

PURPOSE: We systematically reviewed existing critical care electroencephalography (EEG) educational programs for non-neurologists, with the primary goal of reporting the content covered, methods of instruction, overall duration, and participant experience. Our secondary goals were to assess the impact of EEG programs on participants' core knowledge, and the agreement between non-experts and experts for seizure identification.

PURPOSE: The effect of direct laryngoscopy using a Macintosh blade (MAC) vs GlideScope™ videolaryngoscopy using a Spectrum LoPro blade (GVL) on nociceptive stimulation has not been quantitatively studied. This study used the new nociception level (NOL) index to compare the nociceptive response induced by GVL or MAC during laryngoscopy with or without intubation. METHODS: Patients underwent two laryngoscopies at four-minute intervals (L1, L2), one with GVL and the other with MAC (first randomization)...
