PURPOSE: Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) comprise the newest class of oral hypoglycemic agents approved for treating type II diabetes mellitus (DM-II). Their use, however, has been associated with the rare development of euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (euDKA). We present three cases of euDKA that occurred following elective coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The role of the anesthesiologist in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of this complication is also discussed...

BACKGROUND: Nitrous oxide (N2O) has been reported to increase the risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in a dose-dependent manner. We investigated the effect of adding N2O at the end of isoflurane inhalational anesthesia on the recovery and incidence of PONV. Our hypothesis was that N2O would reduce the time to early recovery without increasing the incidence of PONV. METHODS: After obtaining ethics committee approval and written informed consent, 100 women at American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I-III and scheduled for laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy were randomized into two groups (G) according to the carrier gas: GO2 (air in 30% oxygen) and GN2O (the same mixture until the last 30 min of surgery, when 70% N2O in 30% oxygen was used)...

REVIEW
Norfleet B Thompson, James H Calandruccio
Outpatient surgery, especially in free-standing ambulatory surgery centers (ASC), provides a safe, cost-effective option for a variety of surgical procedures and has become the preferred choice over inpatient and hospital-based outpatient surgery for most hand and wrist procedures. Complication rates after ASC hand surgery are low (0.2%-2.5%). Patient dissatisfaction with ASC surgery is primarily associated with postoperative nausea and vomiting and inadequate pain control.

The aim of this review is to analyze what's new on anesthetic prospective to perioperative management for thyroid surgery. For recent decades intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) during thyroid and parathyroid surgery has obtained more and more popularity. New modality of anesthetic technique was also developed to incorporate into surgical teamwork. For example, the precise position of EMG tube and optimal use of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) play key roles in successful IONM system. Special focus is paid to following issues: (I) preoperative airway evaluation and pre-op preparation; (II) anesthetic managements including advanced intubation tools, NMBAs and sugammadex; and (III) post-op adverse events such as pain and postoperative nausea vomiting...

PURPOSE: Opioid medications are integral in managing acute moderate-to-severe pain. Opioid analgesics bind to μ (mu), κ (kappa), or δ (delta) opioid receptors in the brain, spinal cord, and digestive tract. However, opioids cause adverse effects that may interfere with their therapeutic use. Some adverse effects wane over time, but patients using opioids for acute pain struggle with opioid-induced nausea and vomiting (OINV) the entire time they take the opioid. This article discusses the underlying mechanisms, clinical implications, and treatment strategies of OINV...

OBJECTIVE: Fentanyl-induced cough (FIC) is a common complication with a reported incidence from 18.0% to 74.4% during general anesthesia induction. FIC increases the intrathoracic pressure and risks of postoperative nausea and vomiting, yet available treatments are limited. This study was designed to investigate whether administering fentanyl via a slow intravenous fluid line can effectively alleviate FIC during induction of total intravenous general anesthesia. METHODS: A total number of 1200 patients, aged 18-64 years, were enrolled, all of whom were American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade I or II undergoing scheduled surgeries...

We present the case of an 8‑year-old female child with suspected peroxisomal disorder requiring general anesthesia for adenotomy, paracentesis and brainstem-evoked response audiometry. Peroxisomes are small intracellular organelles that catalyse key metabolic reactions. Peroxisomal disorders are a heterogeneous group of rare genetic diseases. Anesthesia can be challenging as adrenal insufficiency, mental retardation, muscle weakness, risk of pulmonary aspiration, airway complications, seizure disorders and altered pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics can occur in these patients but guidelines for anesthesia do not exist due to the heterogeneity and rarity of these diseases and case reports are rare...

BACKGROUND: Postcraniotomy pain can be difficult to manage with opioids due to opioid-related side effects, including drowsiness, nausea/vomiting, confusion, and pupillary changes, potentially masking the signs of postoperative neurological deterioration. Intravenous (IV) acetaminophen, a nonopioid analgesic, has been reported to have opioid-sparing effects after abdominal and orthopedic surgeries. This study investigates whether IV acetaminophen has similar effects after craniotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial, 100 adult patients scheduled to undergo supratentorial craniotomy for excision of a brain mass were randomized to receive either IV acetaminophen or placebo preincision and then every 6 hours for a total of 24 hours after surgery...
