BACKGROUND: American pediatric anesthesiologists have a long history of international volunteerism. However, the US healthcare system also benefits from the contributions of a large number of physicians who come from other nations to work within its borders. Despite this fact, little is known about the contribution of international medical graduates (IMG) to the pediatric anesthesiology subspecialty. AIMS: To characterize the contribution of IMG to the field of pediatric anesthesiology in the United States, and to elucidate the geographic and demographic distribution of their national origins so as to understand the movement of skilled personnel between countries...

BACKGROUND: Anesthesia is required for endoscopic removal of esophageal foreign bodies (EFBs) in children. Historically, endotracheal intubation has been the de facto gold standard for airway management in these cases. However, as more elective endoscopic procedures are now performed under propofol sedation with natural airway, there has been a move toward using similar Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) for select patients who require endoscopic removal of an EFB. METHODS: In this single-center retrospective cohort study, we compared endoscopic EFB removal with either MAC or endotracheal intubation...

BACKGROUND: We have developed a new approach for peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) insertion that we think has several advantages, including ease of insertion, access to a larger vein and patient comfort. METHODS: In this case series report, the first 19 cases were audited. RESULTS: All PICCs were inserted without complications; 17 on the first attempt. CONCLUSION: We conclude that the novel approach to the axillary vein for PICC insertion is feasible and appears to be safe when performed by an experienced operator...

BACKGROUND: Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) affects 2%-4% of the general pediatric population. While surgical correction remains one of the most common orthopedic procedures performed in pediatrics, limited consensus exists on the perioperative anesthetic management. AIMS: To examine the current state of anesthetic management of typical AIS spine fusions at institutions which have a dedicated pediatric orthopedic spine surgeon. METHODS: A web-based survey was sent to all members of the North American Pediatric Spine Anesthesiologists (NAPSA) Collaborative...

BACKGROUND: The use of acetaminophen in the perioperative period has emerged as an attractive option for providing safer and cost-effective analgesia in children. AIMS: The primary aim of our project was to increase the use of acetaminophen (both oral and intravenous) in the perioperative period from a baseline of 39.5% to 50% for all surgical patients within 24 months. The secondary aim was to increase the use of enteral acetaminophen from 10% to 52.5% during the same period...

BACKGROUND: The costoclavicular space serves as an alternative approach to the infraclavicular brachial plexus block, and numerous studies in adults have demonstrated promising outcomes for distal upper limb surgery. Blocking the brachial plexus at this level is potentially advantageous because the cords are relatively superficial, located in close proximity to each other and easily identified using ultrasound. AIMS: This study aimed to assess the success rate and feasibility of costoclavicular block in children undergoing unilateral below elbow upper limb surgery...

BACKGROUND: Chronic abdominal pain in children is occasionally caused by anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES). Diagnosing and treating this typical peripheral abdominal wall neuropathy is challenging. Management usually starts with minimally invasive tender point injections. Nevertheless, these injections can be burdensome and might even be refused by children or their parents. However, a surgical neurectomy is far more invasive. Treatment with a Lidocaine 5% medicated patch is successfully used in a variety of peripheral neuropathies...

Patient positioning interacts with a number of body systems and can impact clinically important perioperative outcomes. In this educational review, we present the available evidence on the impact that patient positioning can have in the pediatric perioperative setting. A literature search was conducted using search terms that focused on pediatric perioperative outcomes prioritized by contemporary research in this area. Several key themes were identified: the effects of positioning on respiratory outcomes, cardiovascular outcomes, enteral function, patient and carer-centered outcomes, and soft issue injuries...

BACKGROUND: Mortality from congenital heart disease has decreased considerably in the last two decades due to improvements in overall health care. However, there are barriers to access to healthcare in Latin America for this population, which could be related to factors such as healthcare system, policies, resources, geographic, cultural, educational, and psychological factors. Understanding the barriers to access to care is of paramount importance for the design and implementation of policies and facilitate the provision of care...

An estimated 1.7 billion children and adolescents do not have access to safe and affordable surgical care, and the vast majority of these are located in low-middle-income countries (LMICs). Pediatric anesthesia, a specialized field that requires a diverse set of knowledge and skills, has seen various advancements over the years and has become well-established in upper-middle and high-income countries. However, in LMICs, due to a multitude of factors including severe workforce shortages, this has not been the case...

INTRODUCTION: Tonsillectomies are among the most common surgical procedures in children, with over 500 000 cases annually in the United States. Despite universal administration of intraoperative opioid analgesia, three out of five children undergoing tonsillectomy report moderate-to-severe pain upon recovering from anesthesia. The underlying molecular mechanisms of post-tonsillectomy pain are not well understood, limiting the development of targeted treatment strategies. Our study aimed to identify candidate serum metabolites associated with varying severity of post-tonsillectomy pain...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Children undergoing airway management during general anesthesia may experience airway complications resulting in a rare but life-threatening situation known as "Can't Intubate, Can't Oxygenate". This situation requires immediate recognition, advanced airway management, and ultimately emergency front-of-neck access. The absence of standardized procedures, lack of readily available equipment, inadequate knowledge, and training often lead to failed emergency front-of-neck access, resulting in catastrophic outcomes...
