PURPOSE: A discordance, predominantly towards overtreatment, exists between patients' expressed preferences for life-sustaining interventions and those documented at hospital admission. This quality improvement study sought to assess this discordance at our institution. Secondary objectives were to explore if internal medicine (IM) teams could identify patients who might benefit from further conversations and if the discordance can be reconciled in real-time. METHODS: Two registered nurses were incorporated into IM teams at a tertiary hospital to conduct resuscitation preference conversations with inpatients either specifically referred to them (group I, n = 165) or randomly selected (group II, n = 164) from 1 August 2016 to 31 August 2018...

PURPOSE: The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is a simple and valid test for assessing cardiopulmonary fitness. Nevertheless, the relationship between preoperative 6MWT distance and postoperative complications is uncertain. We conducted a secondary analysis of the 6MWT nested cohort substudy of the Measurement of Exercise Tolerance before Surgery study to determine if 6MWT distance predicts postoperative complications or death. METHODS: This analysis included 545 adults (≥ 40 yr) who were at elevated cardiac risk and had elective inpatient non-cardiac surgery at 15 hospitals in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand...

PURPOSE: The incidence of difficult and failed intubation is higher in obstetrical patients than in the general population because of anatomic and physiologic changes in pregnancy. Videolaryngoscopy improves the success rate of intubation and reduces complications when compared with direct laryngoscopy in adults; however, it is not known whether this extends to obstetrical surgery. The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy, efficiency, and safety of videolaryngoscopy compared with direct laryngoscopy in obstetrics...

BACKGROUND: Endotracheal intubation is a common lifesaving procedure. An in situ endotracheal tube (ETT) must be secured in position to avoid displacement and potentially life-threatening complications. Adhesive tapes form the most common intraoperative ETT stabilization methods. Limited published data are available to guide the clinical decision regarding ETT taping method. We performed an interventional study aiming to establish which of many commonly employed ETT tape/supplementary adhesive methods provides the most resistance to ETT distraction...

REVIEW
Senthil Packiasabapathy, Valluvan Rangasamy, Senthilkumar Sadhasivam
PURPOSE: Pupillometry is a technique for objective quantification of nociception that takes into account the central processing of noxious stimuli and its sympathetic response. This narrative review provides an overview of the physiology of the pupil, the principles of pupillometry, and its potential application in the perioperative environment, especially in nociception monitoring and quantifying responses to opioids. SOURCE: Relevant articles, including reports of original investigation, review articles, and meta-analyses were identified from searches of PubMed and Google Scholar databases...

PURPOSE: Transversus abdominus plane (TAP) blocks are widely used for postoperative analgesia for abdominal surgical procedures. The purpose of this study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of plain bupivacaine, liposomal bupivacaine, and the mixture of plain bupivacaine with liposomal bupivacaine when used in a TAP block. METHODS: This study was a single centre, prospective, patient-, observer-, and surgeon-blinded, randomized-controlled trial in which 90 patients undergoing an open abdominal hysterectomy with a midline incision were randomized to receive a TAP block with plain bupivacaine (group bupivacaine), liposomal bupivacaine (group liposomal), or a mixture of liposomal bupivacaine and plain bupivacaine (group mixture)...

PURPOSE: Giving birth is the most common reason for hospital admission, with Cesarean delivery being the most frequently performed inpatient surgery. Through a needs assessment and iterative design process involving patients and obstetric anesthesiologists, we previously developed a mobile application, C-Care, for patients undergoing Cesarean delivery. The focus of C-Care is perioperative education and self-monitoring of potential anesthetic complications. This study aimed to obtain feedback on patient engagement with C-Care...

PURPOSE: Present clinical updates, current research findings, and consensus statements relevant to the care of the acute kidney injury (AKI) patient. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Acute kidney injury is one of the most frequent and debilitating complications of surgery and critical illness. Consensus criteria use serum creatinine and urine output measurements to diagnose AKI and allow for objective diagnosis and more accurate comparisons across populations. New serum and urine biomarkers may provide earlier evidence of AKI, but their clinical utility, while increasing, remains limited...

PURPOSE: The venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide partial pressure difference (CO2 gap) has been reported to be a sensitive indicator of cardiac output adequacy. We aimed to assess whether the CO2 gap can predict postoperative adverse outcomes after cardiac surgery. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of 5,151 patients from our departmental database who underwent cardiac surgery from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2018. Lactate level (mmol·L-1 ), central venous oxygen saturation (ScVO2 ) (%), and the venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide difference (CO2 gap) were measured at intensive care unit (ICU) admission and on days 1 and 2 after cardiac surgery...
