REVIEW
Sekar Bhavani
The term, non-operating room anesthesia, describes a location remote from the main operating suites and closer to the patient, including areas that offer specialized procedures, like endoscopy suites, cardiac catheterization laboratories, bronchoscopy suites, and invasive radiology suites. There has been an exponential growth in such procedures and they present challenges in both organizational aspects and administration of anesthesia. This article explores the requirements for the location, preoperative evaluation and patient selection, monitoring, anesthesia technique, and postoperative management at these sites...

Patient simulators are useful tools for training residents and all levels of medical personnel. Simulator usefulness, in small group sessions, is limited by the costs of training large numbers of people. We present an interrupted methodology designed to involve a large group at a location remote from the simulator. The goal was to enable the remote participants to take part in decision making while under time pressure. Two volunteers were chosen as hands-on participants while eighteen remaining anesthesiology residents observed from a lecture room via a closed circuit audio/video feed...

BACKGROUND: Accurate accounting of controlled drug transactions by inpatient hospital pharmacies is a requirement in the United States under the Controlled Substances Act. At many hospitals, manual distribution of controlled substances from pharmacies is being replaced by automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) at the point of care. Despite the promise of improved accountability, a high prevalence (15%) of controlled substance discrepancies between ADC records and anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) has been published, with a similar incidence (15...

It is well established that permanent or transient reduction of somatosensory inputs, following hand deafferentation or anesthesia, induces plastic changes across the hand-face border, supposedly responsible for some altered perceptual phenomena such as tactile sensations being referred from the face to the phantom hand. It is also known that transient increase of hand somatosensory inputs, via repetitive somatosensory stimulation (RSS) at a fingertip, induces local somatosensory discriminative improvement accompanied by cortical representational changes in the primary somatosensory cortex (SI)...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia (UGRA) requires acquisition of new skills. Learning requires one-on-one teaching, and can be limited by time and mentor availability. We investigate whether the skills required for UGRA can be developed and subsequently assessed remotely using a novel online teaching platform. This platform was developed at the University of Toronto to teach laparoscopic surgery remotely and has been termed Telesimulation. METHODS: Anesthesia Site Chiefs at 10 hospitals across Ontario were sent a letter inviting their anesthesia teams to participate in an UGRA remote training program...

OBJECTIVES: Former analyses reported an increased rate of poor direct laryngoscopy view in cardiac surgery patients; however, these findings frequently could be attributed to confounding patient characteristics. In most of the reported cardiac surgery cohorts, the rate of well-known risk factors for poor direct laryngoscopy view such as male sex, obesity, or older age, were increased compared with the control groups. Especially in the ongoing debate on anesthesia staff qualification for cardiac interventions outside the operating room a detailed and stratified risk analysis seems necessary...

BACKGROUND: Laryngeal mask is frequently the airway device of choice in routine general anesthesia for many procedures in children. Several studies have described the use of laryngeal masks in unconventional situations. This survey was undertaken to assess how laryngeal masks are being used by pediatric anesthesiologists. METHOD: The 40-question electronic survey using SurveyMonkey™ was sent to 2740 members of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA). This survey assessed the age, work environment, types of practice, and training levels, as well as clinical situations in which the practitioners use laryngeal masks across different pediatric age groups...

We evaluated impact of the needle length, sex, and body condition on chemical immobilization induction time in 50 (29 males and 21 females) free-ranging fallow deer (Dama dama) in Sweden, 2006-11. Induction time is probably the single most important factor when immobilizing free-ranging wildlife with the use of a remote drug-delivery system. Induction times should be short to minimize stress and risk of injury, and to ensure that immobilized animals can be found and clinically monitored as soon as possible...

Field anesthesia machine ventilators powered by compressed gas are designed for remote locations that may lack a pipeline supply of O2. This study determined the O2 consumption of the compPAC ventilator powered by E cylinders when ventilating the Vent Aid Training Test Lung model of high (HC) and low (LC) pulmonary compliance. Consumed O2 was calculated after measuring the mass of O2 depleted from the E cylinder. Three tidal volumes (V(T)) were tested (500, 750, and 1000 mL). The HC and LC settings were 0.100 and 0...

A Hamid
Anesthesiologist's involvement for the purpose of diagnostic and interventional procedures in cardiac catheterization laboratory has been evolving particularly since last two decades. Catheterization laboratory environment poses certain challenges for the anesthesiologist including unfamiliar remote location, exposure to radiation, limited help from colleagues and communication with cardiologists. Anesthesiologists working in catheterization laboratory are required to have adequate knowledge of the environment, personnel, fluoroscope, echocardiography and type of radio contrast dye during the procedure...

J Devin Roberts
The cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) and electrophysiology laboratory (EPL) environments present unique clinical challenges. These challenges include unfamiliar work areas and staff, limited space with physical barriers separating the patient from the care provider, remote locations, and procedures with rare but potentially catastrophic clinical complications. Ambulatory anesthesiologists must familiarize themselves with these new surroundings and practice vigilant preoperative planning and continual communication with the proceduralist and team...

REVIEW
Franklin Dexter, Ruth E Wachtel
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Providing general anesthesia at locations away from the operating room, called remote locations, poses many medical and scheduling challenges. This review discusses how to schedule procedures at remote locations to maximize anesthesia productivity (see Video, Supplemental Digital Content 1). RECENT FINDINGS: Anesthesia labour productivity can be maximized by assigning one or more 8-h or 10-h periods of allocated time every 2 weeks dedicated specifically to each remote specialty that has enough cases to fill those periods...

A 76-year-old female patient presented for an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for the removal of a biliary stent and lithotripsy. During the procedure, an acute drop in the end-tidal CO 2 , followed by cardiovascular collapse prompted the initiation of the advanced cardiac life support protocol. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) demonstrated direct evidence of pulmonary embolism. The patient was promptly treated with thrombolytic therapy and subsequently discharged home on oral warfarin therapy, with no noted sequelae...

REVIEW
Arne Neyrinck
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The number of diagnostic and interventional procedures outside the operating room has dramatically increased over the last years. However, providing well tolerated anesthesia with the same standard of care in these locations is often challenging to the anesthesiologist. The remote locations include different organizational aspects and hazards. Airway management in general is still confronted with scenarios of difficult intubation and ventilation and often leads to significant morbidity and mortality...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative cognitive decline can be reproduced in animal models. In a well-validated rat model of the Metabolic Syndrome, we sought to investigate whether surgery induced a more severe and persistent form of cognitive decline similar to that noted in preliminary clinical studies. METHODS: In rats that had been selectively bred for low and high exercise endurance, the low capacity runners (LCR) exhibited features of Metabolic Syndrome (obesity, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and hypertension)...
