Monitored anaesthesia in endoscopy

Yael Bensoussan, Jennifer Anderson
BACKGROUND: The advent of chip tip technology combined with advanced endoscopy has revolutionized the field of laryngology in the past decade. Procedures such as transnasal esophagoscopy, site-specific steroid injections, injection laryngoplasty and laryngeal laser treatment can now be performed in the office setting under local anaesthesia. Although In-Office Laryngeal Procedures (IOLPs) have become standard-of-care in many American and several Canadian centers, there are no guidelines regulating the practice of these procedures...

OBJECTIVE: Currently, no standard approach exists to the level of monitoring or presence of staff with anaesthetic expertise required during emergency esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD) for peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB). We assess the association between anaesthesia care and mortality. We further describe the prevalence and inter-hospital variation of anaesthesia care in Denmark and identify clinical predictors for choosing anaesthesia care. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This population-based cohort study included all emergency EGDs for PUB in adults during 2012-2013...

BACKGROUND: Emergency upper gastrointestinal bleeding is a common condition with high mortality. Most patients undergo oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD), but no universally agreed approach exists to the type of airway management required during the procedure. We aimed to compare anaesthesia care with tracheal intubation (TI group) and without airway instrumentation (monitored anaesthesia care, MAC group) during emergency OGD. METHODS: This was a prospective, nationwide, population-based cohort study during 2006-13...

OBJECTIVES: Numerous publications on sedation of and anaesthesia for diagnostic procedures in children prove that no ideal scheme is available. Therefore, we decided to study the protocol with midazolam and ketamine used by nonanaesthetists at our institution. The study aimed to establish the lowest effective starting dose of ketamine and to estimate a difference in the frequency of adverse reactions with or without the use of midazolam as premedication, with special stress on emergence reactions...

Bispectral index (BIS) monitor is a neurophysiological monitoring device which continually analyses a patient's electroencephalogram during sedation and general anaesthesia to assess the level of consciousness and depth of anaesthesia. BIS monitoring, whilst performing sleep nasendoscopy (using midazolam and propofol), has helped validate depth of sedation and allowed comparison with levels of sedation of control patients during natural sleep. A prospective study of 30 patients with snoring undergoing sleep nasendoscopy with BIS monitoring was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Excessive coughing may increase the risk of complications after sinus surgery. We hypothesized that remifentanil would decrease the incidence and severity of coughing after endoscopic sinus surgery with propofol and remifentanil anaesthesia. METHODS: Ninety patients scheduled for endoscopic sinus surgery were randomly assigned into three groups. Propofol was stopped at the completion of the surgical procedure. The remifentanil infusion was adjusted to an effect-site concentration of 1...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Endoscopic neurosurgical procedures are becoming more frequent and popular in the treatment of intracranial disease. When endoscopy involves the intraventricular structures, irrigating solutions are required and may contribute to sudden and sharp increases in intracranial pressure. More recently, nasal endoscopic approach has been used to perform skull base surgery for aneurysms and tumours. We have analysed published articles in order to detect anaesthesia management and perioperative complications...

Endoscopic sinus surgery is commonly performed and has a low risk of major complications. Intraoperative bleeding impairs surgical conditions and increases the risk of complications. Remifentanil appears to produce better surgical conditions than other opioid analgesics, and total intravenous anaesthesia with propofol may provide superior conditions to a volatile-based technique. Moderate hypotension with intraoperative beta blockade is associated with better operating conditions than when vasodilating agents are used...

Sedation for endoscopy provides comfort for the patient and better examination conditions for the endoscopist. The high costs of providing anaesthesia by specialists and the relative lack of specialist personnel in many countries have led to the wider introduction of sedation delivered by non-anaesthesiologists. Such sedation should be targeted for moderate levels of sedation; however, personnel should be able to avoid - and rescue patients from - deeper sedation levels. Several conditions have to be fulfilled to provide proper and safe non-anaesthesiologist sedation for endoscopy, especially when propofol is to be used...

BACKGROUND: Use of a catheter-free, radio telemetric, oesophageal pH-monitoring system in paediatric clinical practice allows patients to follow a more normal physiological pattern of activities and causes less discomfort. At our institution, placement of the capsule is done under general anaesthesia, which restricts the child's activity during the first day. The aim of this study was to determine whether oesophageal pH-measurements should be performed over 48 hours or whether 24-hour measurement provides sufficient and reliable results...
