Central venous catheterization (CVC) is a common invasive procedure. Although it is a relatively safe procedure, severe complications occurred sometimes. One of the most serious complications is large vessel perforation. A 40-year-old man was send to intensive care unit (ICU) after liver transplantation surgery with massive blood transfusion. Four days later, chest computed tomography (CT) were arranged for unknown leukocytosis and high level of procalcitonin. Chest CT revealed possibility of innominate vein perforation by CVC...

Dexmedetomidine, an α-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, provides analgesia, sedation, anxiolysis, sympatholysis and anesthetic-sparing effect, without inducing significant respiratory depression. Due to these properties, its clinical use is no longer limited to serving as a sedative agent in the intensive care unit. Proper airway management and the avoidance of cardiac and respiratory complications are common goals of everyday anesthesia practice. Ensuring airway safety is pivotal during the anesthesia stages of induction, maintenance and recovery...

BACKGROUND: Critical illness is associated with oxidative stress and insulin resistance. These conditions affect the clinical outcomes in intensive care unit (ICU). The aim of this study was to determine whether intervention with α-lipoic acid (ALA) influences the oxidative stress, insulin resistance, and clinical outcomes in critically ill patients. METHOD: In this randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial, 80 critically ill patients who were expected to stay at least seven days in the ICU and required enteral feeding were randomly allocated to two equal groups to receive either ALA (900 mg) or placebo daily for 10 days...

OBJECTIVE: Postoperative pneumonia is the third most common postoperative complication. It may result from aspiration of secretions accumulating in the subglottic space during general anesthesia (GA). However, the relationship between endotracheal suctioning (ETS) during extubation from GA emergence and postoperative pneumonia has not been well investigated. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of ETS during extubation in prevention of postoperative pneumonia in ophthalmic surgery under GA in our medical center from 2011 through 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Postdural puncture headache (PDPH) is the most common serious complication in obstetric anesthesia. We show the incidence of accidental dural puncture (ADP), PDPH, epidural blood patch (EBP) and associated morbidity following a protocol established in an obstetric anesthesia department. METHODS: An observational, prospective, analytical study performed in 66,540 epidural labor analgesia procedures. The objective is to describe the incidence of ADP, PDPH and EBP in a large obstetric anesthesia population, as well as morbidity associated with ADP and EBP...

OBJECTIVE: Sepsis-related systemic inflammation resulted in microcirculatory dysfunction. However, information of normal ranges of microcirculatory parameters in the healthy population remain limited. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the differences in microcirculatory parameters between healthy volunteers and patients with sepsis. METHODS: This observational study enrolled 45 healthy female and 45 healthy male volunteers, and divided them equally into three age groups: young (20-39 years), middle-age (40-59 years), and elderly (60-79 years)...

Shi Hang, Duo Yang, Jie Liu
OBJECTIVE: Deep sedation without intubation for termination of first trimester pregnancy of suction evacuation entails use of sedatives such as propofol or a combination of propofol and sulfentanil, with unwanted complications. Dexmedetomidine is an α2-adrenorecepter agonist which provides sedation, anxiolysis and analgesia, without any of the complications associated with the popular sedatives. METHODS: A total number of 90 patients were randomized to three groups: (1) group P, treated with intranasal saline, intravenous saline and propofol; (2) group DP, treated with intranasal dexmedetomidine, intravenous saline and propofol; and (3) group SP, treated with intranasal saline, intravenous sulfentanil and propofol...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to review and evaluate the selection and dose of anesthetic agents and the interval from the block procedure to skin incision for supraclavicular brachial plexus block in upper extremity surgery. METHODS: We reviewed our cases that underwent upper extremity surgery using only ultrasound-guided supraclavicular brachial plexus block in our hospital between 2011 and 2016. Adverse events during surgery were evaluated. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves were constructed to investigate the relationship between the time from the end of the block procedure to skin incision and the use of local anesthesia on the surgical site...

Tracheal bronchus is a congenital anatomical variant of patients with accessory bronchus in the right upper lobe deriving directly from the supracarinal trachea. Pre-operative consultation with the anesthesiologist is important for patient safety and can avoid adverse effects induced by endotracheal intubation. In this report, we described a case of tracheal bronchus in which general anesthesia was performed for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. We discussed some of the issues surrounding to complications in tracheal bronchus...
