Yongjoon Choi, Sunam Lee, Jiyeon Lee, Seongwon Woo
Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS), also known as Ondine's Curse, is a rare disorder characterized by alveolar hypoventilation and autonomic dysregulation. Patients with CCHS have adequate ventilation while awake but exhibit hypoventilation while asleep. More severely affected patients exhibit hypoventilation both when awake and when asleep. In patients with CCHS, anesthesia is used with the goal of minimizing respiratory depression to avoid prolonged mechanical ventilation. Regional anesthesia should be considered where appropriate...

Background: The American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status (ASA-PS) is a grading system adopted worldwide by anesthesiologists to classify the overall health status of patients. Its importance is demonstrated not only by its routinely use in clinical practice, but also by its deployment in other healthcare-related environments. However, a weak/moderate inter-observer agreement for ASA-PS has been previously shown and, although definitions and clinical examples of each class were provided by ASA, doubts remain on the individual factors influencing the assignment to an ASA-PS class...

Chi Bum In, Sung-Ae Cho, Seok-Jin Lee, Tae-Yun Sung, Choon-Kyu Cho
Background: Geriatric patients are susceptible to respiratory and hemodynamic adverse events during endotracheal intubation and extubation due to anatomic and physiological changes with aging. Supraglottic airway devices (SADs) provide reduced airway morbidity and increased hemodynamic stability in adults. However, studies that have compared the clinical performance of SADs in elderly patients are limited. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical performance of airway management with i-gel™ and LMA Supreme™ (LMA-S) in geriatric patients...

Background: To identify trends in injuries and substandard care associated with anesthesia, we analyzed the Korean Society of Anesthesiologists database, which includes anesthesia-related case files from July 2009 to June 2018. Methods: Case characteristics, injuries, and outcomes were compared between the first part (July 2009-June 2014, n = 105) and the second part (July 2014-June 2018, n = 92) of the analyzed time period. Results: Overall, 132 cases resulted in death...

Background: The aim of the study was to compare the effect of intraperitoneal versus intravenous dexamethasone for the reduction of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) after gynecological laparoscopic surgeries. Methods: Eighty adult female patients, American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I-II, scheduled for gynecological laparoscopic surgery were randomized to receive 8 mg dexamethasone intravenously (IV) (n = 40) or intraperitoneally (IP) (n = 40)...

Background: With ability of lung ultrasound (LUS) to identify regional lung ventilation and collapse, we hypothesize that LUS can be a better method than auscultation to assess lung isolation in determination of position of double lumen tube (DLT). Methods: A randomized controlled study was conducted in cancer institute from November 2014 to December 2015, in hundred adult patients undergoing elective thoracic surgeries. Patients with tracheostomy, difficult airway and pleural-based pathologies were excluded...

The surgical repair of the hip is considered an extremely painful procedure. Managing pain in this surgery is challenging with several options available, each with limitations. Erector spinae plane (ESP) block is a novel technique with promising results that have been reported in different types of surgery. Herein, we describe a case of successful ESP block for pediatric hip surgery which could be in the future an alternative technique for providing effective analgesia.

Seung-Taek Oh, Jin Young Park
Delirium can be defined as "Acute Brain Dysfunction". Compared to dementia which is a disease that deteriorates the brain function in chronic course, delirium shows very similar symptoms but mostly ameliorates when the causative factors are normalized. Due to its heterogeneity of etiologies and symptoms, people including health care workers often mistake delirium for dementia or other psychiatric disorders. Delirium has attracted the global interest increasingly enough to gather vast amount of research on its management in various ways...

Sangseok Lee, Dong Kyu Lee
Multiple comparisons tests (MCTs) are performed several times on the mean of experimental conditions. When the null hypothesis is rejected in a validation, MCTs are performed when certain experimental conditions have a statistically significant mean difference or there is a specific aspect between the group means. A problem occurs if the error rate increases while multiple hypothesis tests are performed simultaneously. Consequently, in an MCT, it is necessary to control the error rate to an appropriate level...

#19
Eric S Schwenk, Edward R Mariano
Multimodal analgesia is defined as the use of more than one pharmacological class of analgesic medication targeting different receptors along the pain pathway with the goal of improving analgesia while reducing individual class-related side effects. Evidence today supports the routine use of multimodal analgesia in the perioperative period to eliminate the over-reliance on opioids for pain control and to reduce opioid-related adverse events. A multimodal analgesic protocol should be surgery-specific, functioning more like a checklist than a recipe, with options to tailor to the individual patient...

Shu Chung Choi, Ji Seon Chae, Youn Jin Kim, Jin Young Chon, Ho Sik Moon
Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is a useful treatment for chronic pain, but it can cause damage depending on its application site. Here, we describe the case of a 54-year-old man who underwent PNS for brachial plexopathy in 2015. One lead was implanted on the left medial cord to stimulate the medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve, and the other was implanted on the radial nerve to stimulate the posterior antebrachial cutaneous nerve. Both leads were inserted near the shoulder joint but did not cross it. Before PNS, the patient did not move his shoulder and elbow because of severe pain, but the treatment greatly alleviated this pain...
