Perioperative anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening emergency that requires prompt recognition and institution of life-saving therapy. The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and Australian and New Zealand Anaesthetic Allergy Group have partnered to develop the anaphylaxis management guideline along with crisis management cards that are recommended for use in suspected anaphylaxis in the perioperative setting. This is the third version of these guidelines with the second version having been published in 2016...

At the Royal Perth Hospital, we have been developing and teaching a can't intubate, can't oxygenate (CICO) rescue algorithm for over 19 years, based on live animal simulation. The algorithm involves a 'cannula-first' approach, with jet oxygenation and progression to scalpel techniques if required in a stepwise fashion. There is little reported experience of this approach to the CICO scenario in humans. We present eight cases in which a cannula-first Royal Perth Hospital approach was successfully implemented during an airway crisis...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Gary W Wong, Akhilesh K Tiwari
Post-mastectomy pain syndrome (PMPS) is a type of chronic postsurgical pain that can be severe, debilitating and frequently encountered in clinical practice. Multiple studies have focused on prevention, identifying risk factors and treating this condition. Nonetheless, PMPS remains a complex condition to treat effectively. In this case report, we describe the use of percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in a breast cancer patient who experienced PMPS refractory to conventional treatments.

REVIEW
Alfred Wy Chua, Matthew J Chua, Brian P Harrisberg, Chandra M Kumar
Two recent cases of central retinal artery occlusion under otherwise uncomplicated sub-Tenon's block that resulted in significant visual loss after cataract surgery prompted us to undertake a literature review of such cases. We identified 97 cases of retinal artery occlusion after ophthalmic surgery under regional anaesthesia that had no immediate signs of block-related complications. These occurred after various intraocular (87%) and extraocular (13%) operations, across a wide range of ages (19-89 years) on patients with (59%) or without (39%) known risk factors...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

In 2023, a Diploma of Rural Generalist Anaesthesia (DipRGA) was implemented across Australia. Developed collaboratively by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), the 12-month qualification is completed during or following ACRRM or RACGP Rural Generalist Fellowship training. Focused on the needs of rural and remote communities for elective and emergency surgery, maternity care, resuscitative care for medical illness or injury, and stabilisation for retrieval, the DipRGA supports rural generalist anaesthetists working within collaborative teams in geographically isolated settings...

REVIEW
Patrick Wong, Jamie W Sleigh
Lingual tonsillar hypertrophy is rarely identified on routine airway assessment but may cause difficulties in airway management. We conducted a narrative review of case reports of lingual tonsillar hypertrophy to examine associated patient factors, success rates of airway management techniques and complications. We searched the literature for anaesthetic management of cases with lingual tonsillar hypertrophy. We found 89 patients in various case reports, from which we derived 92 cases to analyse. 64% of cases were assessed as having a normal airway...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Patients who exhibit high systemic inflammation after cardiac surgery may benefit most from pre-emptive anti-inflammatory treatments. In this secondary analysis ( n  = 813) of the randomised, double-blind Intraoperative High-Dose Dexamethasone for Cardiac Surgery trial, we set out to develop an inflammation risk prediction model and assess whether patients at higher risk benefit from a single intraoperative dose of dexamethasone (1 mg/kg). Inflammation risk before surgery was quantified from a linear regression model developed in the placebo arm, relating preoperatively available covariates to peak postoperative C-reactive protein...

A 19-year-old woman with known maple syrup urine disease presented to hospital with metabolic crisis in the setting of influenza type A infection and intractable vomiting, rapidly progressing to acute cerebral oedema manifesting as refractory seizures and decreased level of consciousness needing emergency intubation and mechanical ventilation, continuous veno-venous haemodiafiltration and thiopentone coma. A computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrated classic signs of cerebral oedema secondary to a metabolic crisis from the metabolic disorder...

Patients with severe clinical manifestations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) present particular diagnostic and management challenges to critical care physicians, including identifying and responding to concurrent bacterial and fungal coinfections. This study evaluates risk factors for in-hospital mortality in patients admitted to the intensive care unit with severe COVID-19 during circulation of the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant, including the impact of immunomodulators and bacterial and/or fungal coinfection...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Steven J Gaff, Victor X Chen, Eugenie Kayak
Nitrous oxide is a potent greenhouse gas and ozone-depleting agent with a long atmospheric lifetime. Several previous reports indicate that over half of supplied nitrous oxide is wasted from leaking manifold-pipeline systems infrastructure prior to patient use, and that remediating leaks can have significant environmental benefits. We describe an accurate, simple and cost-effective cylinder weighing method to quantify nitrous oxide leak from the manifold-pipeline network at our tertiary non-obstetric facility...
