PURPOSE: Cuffed endotracheal tubes (ETTs) have increasingly been used in small children. However, the use of cuffed ETTs in small children is still controversial. The goal of this meta-analysis is to assess the current evidence regarding the postextubation morbidity and tracheal tube (TT) exchange rate of cuffed ETTs compared to uncuffed ETTs in children. METHODS: A systematic literature search in PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials up to November 2014 was conducted to identify randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and prospective cohort studies that compared the use of cuffed and uncuffed ETTs in children...

We searched MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, AMED and CENTRAL databases until December 2014 and included 133 randomised controlled trials of peri-operative gabapentin vs placebo. Gabapentin reduced mean (95% CI) 24-h morphine-equivalent consumption by 8.44 (7.26-9.62) mg, p < 0.001, whereas more specific reductions in morphine equivalents were predicted (R(2)  = 90%, p < 0.001) by the meta-regression equation: 3.73 + (-0.378 × control morphine consumption (mg)) + (-0.0023 × gabapentin dose (mg)) + (-1...

Qualitative arterial waveform analysis has been in existence for millennia; quantitative arterial waveform analysis techniques, which can be traced back to Euler's work in the 18th century, have not been widely used by anesthesiologists and other clinicians. This is likely attributable, in part, to the widespread use of the sphygmomanometer, which allows the practitioner to assess arterial blood pressure without having to develop a sense for the higher-order characteristics of the arterial waveform. The 20-year delay in the development of devices that measure these traits is a testament to the primitiveness of our appreciation for this information...

BACKGROUND: Despite widespread use, there is limited information to guide perioperative management of angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, the authors evaluated the patterns of postoperative ARB use in veterans regularly prescribed ARBs admitted for noncardiac surgery at the Veterans Affairs Healthcare system between 1999 and 2011. Multivariable and propensity score-matched Cox proportional hazards models were used to determine the independent effect of failure to resume ARB by postoperative day 2 on the primary outcome of all-cause 30-day mortality...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
