BACKGROUND: Magnesium was reported to reduce both the anesthetic requirements and the period needed to reach a bi-spectral index value of 60 when used intra-operatively (Br J Anaesth 83:302-20, 1999; Anesth Analg 20:1273-5, 1988; Br J Anaesth 89:594-8, 2002; Anesth Analg 87:206-10, 1998; Br J Anaesth 89:594-8, 2002; Br J Anaesth 94:438-41, 2005) and to minimize the emergence agitation (Anaesthesia 61:1058-63, 2006). Previous studies examined the influence of magnesium on the anesthetic requirements while the bi-spectral Index values were kept within a constant range...

In 2009, Joachim Boldt published an article in Anesthesia & Analgesia comparing albumin and hydroxyethyl starch priming cardiopulmonary bypass. The study was retracted in December 2010 for lack of IRB approval. A subsequent investigation by Klinikum Ludwigshafen determined that the study was fabricated. Based on the finding by Landesärztekammer Rheinland-Pfalz, the State Medical Association of Rheinland-Pfalz, that the studies were conducted without IRB approval, Anesthesia & Analgesia retracted 22 papers by Dr...

BACKGROUND: Signalling of several G-protein-coupled receptors of the Gq/11 family is time-dependently inhibited by local anaesthetics (LAs). Since LA-induced modulation of muscarinic m1 and m3 receptor function may explain their beneficial effects in clinical practice, such as decreased postoperative cognitive dysfunction or less bronchoconstriction, we studied how prolonged exposure affects muscarinic signalling (Wang D, Wu X, Li J, Xiao F, Liu X, Meng M. The effect of lidocaine on early postoperative cognitive dysfunction after coronary artery bypass surgery...

BACKGROUND: Poor supervision of physician trainees can be detrimental not only to resident education but also to patient care and safety. Inadequate supervision has been associated with more frequent deaths of patients under the care of junior residents. We hypothesized that residents reporting more medical errors would also report lower quality of supervision scores than the ones with lower reported medical errors. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the association between the frequency of medical errors reported by residents and their perceived quality of faculty supervision...

CLINICAL PROBLEM: Volatile anesthetics and/or succinylcholine may trigger a potentially lethal malignant hyperthermia (MH) event requiring critical care crisis management. If the MH triggering anesthetic is given in an ambulatory surgical center (ASC), then the patient will need to be transferred to a receiving hospital. Before May 2010, there was no clinical guide regarding the development of a specific transfer plan for MH patients in an ASC. MECHANISM BY WHICH THE STATEMENT WAS GENERATED: A consensual process lasting 18 months among 13 representatives of the Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States, the Ambulatory Surgery Foundation, the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia, the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians led to the creation of this guide...

BACKGROUND: Research in predictive variability of operating room (OR) times has been performed using data from multidisciplinary, tertiary hospitals with mostly adult patients. In this article, we discuss case-duration prediction for children receiving general anesthesia for endoscopy. We critique which of the several types of OR management decisions dependent on accuracy of prediction are relevant to series (lists) of brief pediatric anesthetics. METHODS: OR information system data were obtained for all children (aged 18 years and younger) undergoing a gastroenterology procedure with an anesthesiologist over 21 months...

Telemedicine provides the opportunity to bring medical expertise to the bedside, even if the medical expert is not physically near the patient. Internet technology has facilitated telemedicine allowing for voice, video and other data to be exchanged between remote locations. To date, applications of telemedicine to anesthesia (Teleanesthesia) have been limited. Previous work by Cone et al., (Anesth Analg 2006;1463-7) demonstrated the ability to direct an anesthetic in a remote location using satellite communication...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the influence of calcium chloride (CaCl(2)) on the cardio-respiratory effects of enoximone in isoflurane anaesthetized ponies. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective consecutive experimental trial. Animals Six healthy ponies, weighing 287 +/- 55 kg were included in this study. METHODS: After sedation (romifidine, 80 microg kg(-1)), anaesthesia was induced with midazolam (0.06 mg kg(-1)) and ketamine (2.2 mg kg(-1)) and maintained with isoflurane in oxygen...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the number of articles by Spanish authors in three international anesthesiology journals and assess the impact of Spanish anesthesiology literature during the same period by way of citations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Articles published in Anesthesiology, British Journal of Anesthesiology (BJA) and Anesthesia & Analgesia (Anesth Analg) during 1997 were reviewed. We collected the following data: type of document, country of origin of the authors, total number of references, number of citations of Spanish articles and the journals from which they were cited...

The performance of 10 pharmacokinetic models in predicting blood propofol concentrations was evaluated in patients during neurosurgical anesthesia. Eight patients-ASA category I or II, aged 49 +/- 18-years, weighing 71 +/- 20 kg, and scheduled for routine neurosurgery-were anesthetized with propofol and sufentanil using Ohmeda pumps controlled with a personal computer. Sufentanil was administered as a bolus of 0.3, 5 min before induction of anesthesia, and infused at a constant rate of 0.5 microgram...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine if the literature supported the assumption that the values and changes in end-tidal PCO2 (PETCO2) during anaesthesia accurately reflect the values and changes in arterial PCO2 (PaCO2) is tenable. METHODS: The information was obtained by (a) a Medline literature search and the appropriate references quoted in the list generated; (b) appropriate abstracts in recent issues of the annual meeting supplements of Anesth Analg, Anesthesiology, Br J Anaesth and Can J Anaesth...

Computer-controlled infusion of propofol is used with increasing frequency for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia. The performance of computer-controlled infusion devices is highly dependent on how well the implemented pharmacokinetic parameter set matches the pharmacokinetics of the patient. This study examined the performance of a computer-controlled infusion device when provided with five different pharmacokinetic parameter sets of propofol in female patients. The infusion rate-time data that had been stored on a disk from 19 female patients who had been given propofol by computer-controlled infusion, using the pharmacokinetic parameter set from Gepts et al...
