Development targets in anaesthetic pharmacology have evolved from minimizing harm caused by unwanted effects through an era in which rapid onset and offset of drug effect were prioritised. Today's anaesthetists have access to a library of effective drugs whose characteristics offer controllable hypnosis, analgesia and paralysis with manageable off-target effects. The availability of these agents at generic prices inhibits commercial interest and this is reflected in the limited number of current anaesthetic drug development projects...

The aim of this study was to do determine the efficacy of the topical anaesthetic Tri-Solfen® in the amelioration of the pain of castration in piglets. The trial was conducted over a three day period, and blocked across six litters with 12 piglets treated on days one and two, and 16 on day three. The piglets were randomly allocated by weight and litter to 1 of 4 treatment groups: (i) sham castration (SHAM; n = 10); (ii) surgical castration with no anaesthetic intervention (CAST; n = 10); (iii) surgical castration with post-operative topical anaesthesia (TRI; n = 10); (iv) surgical castration with a pre-operative intra-testicular lignocaine hydrochloride injection (LIG; n = 10)...

Neurotoxicity of local anaesthetics has been alerted by more and more peoples. Cav3.1 and Cav3.2 T-type calcium channels were closely related with local anaesthetics toxicity. However, the role of Cav3.3, another subtype of the T-type calcium channel, on the neurotoxicity induced by local anaesthetics remains unclear. CaMKIIγ is a kind of multifunctional kinase and associated with a variety of physiological and pathological process. T-type calcium channel is closely related with CaMKIIγ. Up-regulation CaMKIIγ can increase T-type currents at the dorsal root ganglia (DRG)...

Background: Retrospective clinical studies suggest there is a risk for neurodevelopmental impairment following early childhood exposure to anaesthesia. In the developing animal brain, including those of non-human primates (NHPs), anaesthetics induce apoptotic cell death. We previously reported that a 5 h isoflurane (ISO) exposure in infant NHPs increases apoptosis 13-fold compared with control animals. However, the majority of paediatric surgeries requiring anaesthesia are of shorter durations...

Background: Exposure of infant animals to clinically used anaesthetics is associated with acute structural brain abnormalities and development functional alterations. The α 2 -adrenoceptor agonist dexmedetomidine (DEX) induces sedation, analgesia, and provides neuroprotection in experimental brain injury models. However, it is unknown whether DEX also affords protection in the developing brain against anaesthesia using sevoflurane (SEVO), which is commonly used in paediatric anaesthesia...

Background: Brain injury in newborn animals from prolonged anaesthetic exposure has raised concerns for millions of children undergoing anaesthesia every yr. Alternative anaesthetic techniques or mitigating strategies are urgently needed to ameliorate potentially harmful effects. We tested dexmedetomidine, both as a single agent alternative technique and as a mitigating adjuvant for sevoflurane anaesthesia. Methods: Neonatal rats were randomized to three injections of dexmedetomidine (5, 25, 50, or 100 µg kg -1 every 2 h), or 6 h of 2...

Background: Isoflurane is widely used for anaesthesia in humans. Isoflurane exposure of rodents prior to post-natal day 7 (PND7) leads to widespread neurodegeneration in laboratory animals. Previous data from our laboratory suggest an attenuation of apoptosis with the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) inhibitor TAT-Pep5. We hypothesized that isoflurane toxicity leads to behavioural and cognitive abnormalities and can be rescued with pre-anaesthesia administration of TAT-Pep5. Methods: Neonatal mouse pups were pretreated with either TAT-Pep5 (25 μl, 10 μM i...

OBJECTIVES: Ischaemic brain injury is a major complication in patients undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease, with the hippocampus being a particularly vulnerable region. We hypothesized that neuronal injury resulting from cardiopulmonary bypass and associated circulatory arrest is ameliorated by pretreatment with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), a cytokine and an anti-apoptotic neurotrophic factor. METHODS: In a model of ischaemic brain injury, 4 male newborn piglets were anaesthetized and subjected to deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) (cooled to 18°C, DHCA maintained for 60 min, rewarmed and recovered for 8-9 h), while 4 animals received G-CSF (34 µg/kg, intravenously) 2 h prior to the DHCA procedure...

Background Experimental studies have shown that neonatal exposure to stress, pain, opioids and anaesthetics may cause histologic and morphologic changes in the central nervous system with associated functional and behavioural changes in the long term. An important question is whether this holds true for humans also - and in particular for sick neonates who often are exposed to pain and receive anaesthetics and sedatives. Methods In this narrative review, we evaluate the effects of neonatal exposure to stress, pain, opioids and anaesthetics in infancy and childhood in animals and in preterm born and term born humans on pain sensitivity, brain morphology, cognition and behaviour later in life...

Sevoflurane is the most widely used anaesthetic administered by inhalation. Exposure to sevoflurane in neonatal mice can induce learning deficits and abnormal social behaviours. MicroRNA (miR)-27a-3p, a short, non-coding RNA that functions as a tumour suppressor, is up-regulated after inhalation of anaesthetic, and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPAR-γ) is one of its target genes. The objective of this study was to investigate how the miR-27a-3p-PPAR-γ interaction affects sevoflurane-induced neurotoxicity...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the early and late effects of sevoflurane on the neonatal brain. BACKGROUND: Sevoflurane is the most used anaesthetics in neonatal subjects. METHODS: The study included 7-day-old male Wistar-Albino rats (n = 30), which were divided into the two groups according to the anaesthetic received: sevoflurane (S) and control group (C). Half of each group was sacrificed six hours after anaesthesia (early, E) while the remaining subjects were sacrificed six weeks later (late, L)...

Luciferase bioimaging in living animals is increasingly being applied in many fields of biomedical research. Rodent imaging usually involves anaesthetising the animal during data capture, however, the biological consequences of anaesthesia have been largely overlooked. We have evaluated luciferase bioimaging in conscious, unrestrained mice after neonatal intracranial or intravascular administration of lentiviral, luciferase reporter cassettes (biosensors); we present real-time analyses from the first day of life to adulthood...

Although propofol is a widely used intravenous general anaesthetic, many studies report its toxic potential, particularly on the developing central nervous system. We investigated its action on hypoglossal motoneurons (HMs) that control two critical functions in neonates, namely tongue muscle activity and airway patency. Thus, clinically relevant concentrations of propofol (1 and 5μM) were applied (4h) to neonatal rat brainstem slices to evaluate the expression of apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) as biomarker of toxicity...

What is the central question of this study? Does activation of serotonergic neurons in the caudal medullary raphe, some of which project to the nucleus of the solitary tract, shorten the laryngeal chemoreflex? What is the main finding and its importance? We found that serotonin originating from neurons in the caudal raphe acts through a 5-HT3 receptor located in the nucleus of the solitary tract to terminate reflex apnoea. Failure or deficiency of this arousal-related process is likely to be relevant to the pathogenesis of sudden infant death syndrome...

REVIEW
G Kampf, S Lemmen
Most hand hygiene guidelines recommend that gloves should be changed during patient care when an indication for hand disinfection occurs. Observational studies indicate that the majority of healthcare workers (HCWs) do not disinfect their hands at all during continued glove wear. The aim of this narrative review is to assess the potential benefits and risks for disinfecting gloved hands during patient care for multiple activities with indicated glove use on the same patient. Continued glove wear for multiple activities on the same patient often results in performing procedures, including aseptic procedures with contaminated gloves, especially in a setting where there are many indications in a short time, e...

An FDA alert in December 2016 on the safety of general anesthesia and sedations in patients less than 3 years of age and pregnant women has raised doubts in relation to the attitude that professionals implicated in these procedures should adopt in relation to these specific group of patients. Confronted with this situation, the following medical scientific societies: Sociedad Española de Anestesia y Reanimación (SEDAR), Sociedad Española de Cirugía Pediátrica (SECP), Sociedad Española de Cuidados Intensivos Pediátricos (SECIP) y Sociedad Española de Neonatología (SENeo), have established a working group to analyze and clarify the safety of these techniques...

Caudal epidural block in a conscious infant is a recognised technique that allows the avoidance of general anaesthesia and risks associated with it. It is also technically easier to perform reliably compared with an awake subarachnoid block in skilled hands.(1) While local anaesthetic systemic toxicity is a rare complication of caudal anaesthesia, this case illustrates the potential for caudal anaesthesia done awake in enhancing patient safety through early recognition of local anaesthetic systemic toxicity...
