BACKGROUND: Patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) often experience pain, oversedation, prolonged mechanical ventilation, delirium, and weakness. These conditions are important in that they often lead to protracted physical, neurocognitive, and mental health sequelae now termed postintensive care syndrome. Changing current ICU practice will not only require the adoption of evidence-based interventions but the development of effective and reliable teams to support these new practices...

Muhammad Shafiq, Yousaf Zafar
Acute acalculous cholecystitis (AAC) is most commonly seen after surgery in critically ill patients. Early diagnosis and treatment is the key in the management of AAC. Ultrasound is the commonly used first modality for right upper quadrant (RUQ) pain with sensitivity equal to or greater than 80% for AAC. Computed tomography (CT) scan is reported to have a sensitivity close to 90% and if both the ultrasound and CT scan are combined, it further increases the sensitivity for the diagnosis of AAC. It is unlikely for AAC to be present in the setting of both negative ultrasound and CT scan of the abdomen...

Background: Closed thoracic drainage tube (CTDT) is a conventional treatment after esophagectomy, even after minimally invasive esophagectomy. Here, we report a single-center, retrospective study to explore the safety and necessity of CTDT after thoracoscopic-esophagectomy. Methods: From October 2015 and August 2016, 50 patients were enrolled and underwent thoracoscopic-esophagectomy in semi-prone position by same surgical team. Perioperative demographic and surgical parameters, and patients' satisfaction with or without CTDT after thoracoscopic-esophagectomy were collected and analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an x linked recessive disorder. Long term prognosis is ominous, with development of respiratory distress and cardiomyopathy in advanced stage of the disease and expected death in the teens-to-mid 20s due to respiratory or cardiac failure. Peri-operative management of this patients is challenging due to difficult airway anatomy (macroglossia, limited neck and mandibular mobility). Additionally, they are at risk of developing malignant hyperthermia, rhabdomyolysis and hyperkalemic cardiac arrest when exposed to halogenated inhalational anaesthetics and depolarizing muscle relaxants...

INTRODUCTION: Minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS), via minithoracotomy, is thought to be a fast track to extubation and recovery after surgery. Chronic pain, due to intercostal nerve injury, develops in up to 50% of postthoracotomy patients.A number of regional anaesthesia and analgesia techniques may be employed, and the anaesthesiologists play a key role in facilitating optimal outcomes after surgery. METHODS: We report a case of postoperative pain management with a local anesthetic infiltration for MICS...

INTRODUCTION: With increasing use of percutaneous vascular procedures, access complications that present to a vascular surgeon increase. The most limb-threatening condition is acute limb ischaemia. Acute limb ischaemia is the most common vascular surgical emergency. In spite of recent advances in vascular surgery, it continues to carry a poor prognosis, if not early diagnosed and managed. METHODS: This is a case-report of 2 patients referenced to a vascular surgery emergency department of a tertiary hospital with late acute limb ischaemia...

Accurate pain assessment and management constitute a major challenge for medical and nursing staff in intensive care units (ICUs). A distinct recollection of pain is reported by high proportions of ICU patients. A clinical therapeutic intervention directed at improving pain assessment and management in critically ill patients who are unable to communicate was implemented at an Italian ICU. In this before-and-after study, data were collected before (T0 ) and after (T1 ) the adoption of a protocol involving pain assessment with an ad hoc behavioral pain scale and the administration of analgesics, rather than sedatives, to patients with intermediate to high pain scores...

REVIEW

The genesis of dyspnea involves the activation of several mechanisms that are mediated and perceived depending on previous experiences, values, emotions and beliefs. Breathlessness may become unbearable, especially in terminally ill patients, whether afflicted by respiratory, cardiac or cancer-related disorders, due to a final stage of a chronic process, an acute event or both. Compared to pain, palliation of dyspnea has received relatively little attention in clinical practice and the medical literature. This is particularly true when the breathlessness is associated with acute respiratory failure since most of the studies on pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments of respiratory distress have excluded such patients...

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine (DEX) has sedative, sympatholytic and analgesic effects and might be beneficial if used as an adjuvant to: improve analgesia; modulate haemodynamic responses to intubation and pneumoperitoneum and; reduce the number of opioid-associated adverse events. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of DEX infusion during elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). METHODS: A randomized, single-centre, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study was carried out between May 2016 and June 2017...

BACKGROUND: Clinically hypomyopathic dermatomyositis is a rare disease that is important to recognize, investigate and treat early as it is associated with poor prognosis. In a proportion of patients, myositis specific antibodies could be negative, but with high clinical suspicion, myositis associated antibodies should be ordered. Anti-MDA-5 antibodies was reported in literature to be associated with severe and rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease, with few case reports of pneumothorax and/or pneumomediastinum...

A major predicament for Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients is inconsistent and ineffective communication means. Patients rated most communication sessions as difficult and unsuccessful. This, in turn, can cause distress, unrecognized pain, anxiety, and fear. As such, we designed a portable BCI system for ICU communications (BCI4ICU) optimized to operate effectively in an ICU environment. The system utilizes a wearable EEG cap coupled with an Android app designed on a mobile device that serves as visual stimuli and data processing module...

BACKGROUND: Persistent pain likely interferes with quality of life in survivors of critical illness, but data are limited on its prevalence and risk factors. We sought to determine the prevalence of persistent pain after critical illness and its interference with daily life. Additionally, we sought to determine if intensive care unit (ICU) opioid exposure is a risk factor for its development. METHODS: In a cohort of adult medical and surgical ICU survivors, we used the brief pain inventory (BPI) to assess pain intensity and pain interference of daily life at 3 and 12 months after hospital discharge...

Background and Objectives: Critically ill patients are unable to communicate effectively, so it is difficult to assess their pain and analgesic requirement. Skin conductance algesimeter (SCA) index is a device that primarily measures changes in skin conductance real time to assess pain. Methods: We planned this quantitative prospective observational study to assess pain in the critically ill mechanically ventilated patients in comparison to physiologic indicators such as blood pressure and heart rate...

Adequate postoperative analgesia in pediatric patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) matters, since untreated pain is associated with negative outcomes. Compared to routine postoperative patients, children undergoing hypothermia (HT) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), or recovering after cardiac surgery likely display non-maturational differences in pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD). These differences warrant additional dosing recommendations to optimize pain treatment. Areas covered: Specific populations within the ICU will be discussed with respect to expected variations in PK and PD for various analgesics...

OBJECTIVES: Excellent outcomes after minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (mini-AVR) have been reported. Therefore, mini-AVR has become a popular treatment option in many cardiac surgery centres. However, whether obese patients particularly benefit from mini-AVR remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate outcomes of AVR performed through partial upper sternotomy compared to AVR through a full sternotomy (full-AVR) in obese patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of all patients who underwent isolated AVR at our institution, and 217 consecutive obese [body mass index (BMI) >30 kg/m2] patients were identified...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Patients' sleep can be disturbed during their stay in an Intensive Care Unit. Many factors can explain this disturbance, both within the ICU environment and caused by patients' illnesses. There is evidence that patients' sleep can be improved within ICUs. The aim of this study is to describe patientś perceptions of a night's sleep and develop a care plan that promotes a night's sleep. METHODOLOGY: A prospective descriptive study was performed in the ICU of a training hospital...

Background: Endoluminal vacuum therapy (EVT) has been successfully established with promising survival rates in the treatment of anastomotic leakages after esophagectomy. It is still unclear how this therapy affects health related quality of life (HRQOL). Methods: HRQOL was prospectively assessed using the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-C30 (EORTC QLQ-C30) questionnaire. Assessment was carried out prior to surgery, after discharge, 6 months and 12 months after surgery...
