Background: Preoperative blood pressure (BP) thresholds associated with increased postoperative mortality remain unclear. We investigated the relationship between preoperative BP and 30-day mortality after elective non-cardiac surgery. Methods: We performed a cohort study of primary care data from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (2004-13). Parsimonious and fully adjusted multivariable logistic regression models, including restricted cubic splines for numerical systolic and diastolic BP, for 30-day mortality were constructed...

Previous meta-analyses suggest that perioperative goal-directed therapy (GDT) is useful to decrease postoperative morbidity. Most GDT studies analysed were done with pulmonary artery catheters, oesophageal Doppler and calibrated pulse contour methods. Uncalibrated pulse contour (uPC) techniques are an appealing alternative but their accuracy has been questioned. The effects of GDT on fluid management (volumes and volume variability) remain unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials investigating the effects of GDT with uPC methods on postoperative outcome...

Enhanced recovery programmes (ERPs) are increasingly used to improve post-surgical recovery. However, compliance to various components of ERPs-a key determinant of success-remains sub-optimal. Emerging technologies have the potential to help patients and caregivers to improve compliance with ERPs.Preoperative physical condition, a major determinant of postoperative outcome, could be optimized with the use of text messages (SMS) or digital applications (Apps) designed to facilitate smoking cessation, modify physical activity, and better manage hypertension and diabetes...

Background: . Experimental studies in animals have shown that exposure to general anaesthesia in infancy can cause loss of cells in the central nervous system and long-term impairments in neurocognitive function. Some human epidemiological studies have shown increased risk of learning disability after repeated anaesthesia exposure in early childhood. Thus, we investigated in a highly translational rhesus monkey model, whether repeated exposure in infancy to the inhalation anaesthetic sevoflurane is associated with impaired visual recognition memory during the first two yr of life...

Background.: Perioperative bleeding remains a major challenge in liver transplantation. We aimed to compare standard laboratory tests with thromboelastometry (ROTEM ® ) with regard to their ability to predict postoperative non-surgical bleeding. Methods.: Data from 243 adult liver transplant recipients from January 2012 to May 2014 were evaluated retrospectively. Upon admission to the intensive care unit, coagulation status was assessed using standard laboratory tests [prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), fibrinogen concentration, and platelet count] and ROTEM ® whole blood coagulation assays...

Background: There is limited information on UK anaesthetists' perspectives and experiences of perioperative anaphylaxis. This baseline survey of the Sixth National Audit Project (NAP6) aimed to identify relevant departmental preparedness and practices, and individual experiences, perceptions and drug-avoidance patterns. Methods: All anaesthetists in 356 UK NHS hospitals were invited to complete an electronic survey. Results: 11 104 anaesthetists (77% crude response rate) from 341 (96%) hospitals responded...

G Xu, H Lu, Y Dong, D Shapoval, S G Soriano, X Liu, Y Zhang, Z Xie
Background.: Anaesthesia can induce cognitive deficiency in young rodents and monkeys. Mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the anaesthesia-induced neurotoxicity and neurobehavioural deficits. We therefore assessed the effects of the mitochondrial energy enhancer coenzyme Q 10 (CoQ 10 ) on anaesthesia-induced cognitive deficiency in young mice to investigate the role of mitochondrial dysfunction. Methods.: Young mice ( n =134) were randomly assigned into the following four groups: control plus corn oil vehicle (60% oxygen); 3% sevoflurane [2 h daily on postnatal day (P) 6, 7, and 8] plus vehicle; CoQ 10 (50 mg kg -1 ) plus vehicle; or 3% sevoflurane plus CoQ 10 plus vehicle...
