#1
David Kotwinski, Laura Paton, Roger Langford
The delivery of oxygen is a key component of anaesthetic practice. High flow nasal oxygen therapy is a relatively new addition to more traditional means of oxygenation which provides heated and humidified flows of controlled oxygen/air mixes achieving rates of up to 120 litres/min. The physiological benefits include nasopharyngeal dead space washout, reduced work of breathing, alveolar recruitment, maintained mucociliary function and the ability to provide apnoeic oxygenation. This article considers the current evidence for high flow nasal oxygen therapy in perioperative anaesthetic care during pre-oxygenation and intubation, management of the difficult airway, oxygenation for shared airway surgery, extubation and postoperative support, obstetric and paediatric anaesthesia...

#5
Christopher J Kirwan, Aktar Ali, Neil McCarten
The new junior doctor contract allows trainees to exception report when they breach safe working hours. After a full year of foundation year 1 rotations, analysis from a large NHS trust in London showed that exception reporting works to highlight rota and working issues. It is unsurprising that trainees are busy but simple things such as competent infrastructure and senior support could go a long way to improving working conditions. In addition, results from a local survey suggest that trainees think the new contract is less safe for both doctors and patients, with inflexibility of rota patterns having a significant impact on the ability to take annual and study leave...

Simon Mifsud, Emma L Schembri, Mark Gruppetta
Stress-induced hyperglycaemia is an important clinical entity. It is an adaptive immune-neurohormonal response to physiological stress in an attempt to increase metabolic substrates to struggling organs during a time of crisis. However, this acute hyperglycaemia is also responsible for a number of detrimental effects implying that treatment is necessary. Hence, admission hyperglycaemia is not necessarily equivalent to a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus but the blood glucose level needs to be interpreted in context of the patient's presenting complaint and previous glycaemic status...

#10
Thomas Wojcikiewicz, Jonathan Cousins, Michael Margarson
The prevalence of obesity in the UK is increasing. Airway management in the obese patient can be challenging. Face mask ventilation is frequently difficult, and while the incidence of difficult laryngoscopy is only marginally raised, the consequences of failed intubation and the rate at which the obese patient desaturates makes this an unforgiving population. Emergence from anaesthesia requires particular care and attention. This article addresses the problems of airway management in the obese patient and looks at measures which can be taken to overcome them...

BACKGROUND: Antibiotic prophylaxis is crucial in head and neck surgery to prevent infection from clean contaminated wounds. Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) guidance, the gold standard of practice, recommends that administration of broad spectrum antibiotics is discontinued after 24 hours post-operation. A three-audit cycle quality improvement project was conducted to assess clinical practice against SIGN guidance at a large London teaching hospital. METHODS: Three change initiatives were implemented to improve antibiotic stewardship...

Hearing loss is a very common presentation both in primary and secondary care. In addition to causing significant morbidity, it can make communication with patients very challenging, and thus impact other aspects of their care. This article presents an approach to the assessment and management of this condition.
