OBJECTIVE To date, treatment of complex unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIAs) remains challenging. Therefore, advanced techniques are required to achieve an optimal result in treating these patients safely. In this study, the safety and efficacy of rapid ventricular pacing (RVP) to facilitate microsurgical clip reconstruction was investigated prospectively in a joined neurosurgery, anesthesiology, and cardiology study. METHODS Patients with complex UIAs were prospectively enrolled. Both the safety and efficacy of RVP were evaluated by recording cardiovascular events and outcomes of patients as well as the amount of aneurysm occlusion after the surgical clip reconstruction procedure...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Inattentional blindness is the psychological phenomenon of inability to see the unexpected even if it is in plain view. We hypothesized that anesthesiologists may overlook unexpected intraoperative events whereas medical students, lacking in intraoperative monitoring experience and knowledge, may be more likely to notice such events. DESIGN: A simulation study using a video of a simulated septic patient undergoing abdominal surgery. SETTING: A large academic center...

Counting health personnel and defining migration is more complicated than one should think at first glance. Migrating health workers are not a homogenous group, and many factors cause people to migrate-not only low wages but also lack of professional development possibilities, poor job satisfaction, outdated equipment, unsafe environment, and more. The opposite factors encourage people to stay. Many countries, including high-income countries benefit from remittances from migrating individuals. The World Health Organization has installed a code of Practice on the international recruitment of health workers...

BACKGROUND: Propofol is commonly used in modern anesthesiology. Some findings suggest that it is highly addictive. AIM: In this study it was examined whether propofol anesthesia exposure was able to induce behavioral alterations and brain molecular changes already described in addictive drug usage in peripubertal rats, during the onset of mid/periadolescence as a developmental period with increasing vulnerability to drug addiction. METHODS: The expression of D1 dopamine receptor, a dopamine, and cAMP-regulated phosphoprotein with a Mr 32 000; Ca(2+) /calmodulin-dependent protein kinase IIα; and Finkel-Biskis-Jinkins murine osteosarcoma viral oncogene homolog-B was examined in peripubertal rats 4, 24, and 48 hour after propofol anesthesia exposure by Western blot and immunohistochemistry...

BACKGROUND: Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) provide high-quality evidence for clinical decision-making. Trial registration is one of the many tools used to improve the reporting of RCTs by reducing publication bias and selective outcome reporting bias. The purpose of our study is to examine whether RCTs published in the top 6 general anesthesiology journals were adequately registered and whether the reported primary and secondary outcomes corresponded to the originally registered outcomes...

Meningioma accounts for ~25% of all primary intracranial neoplasms and the incidence increases with age. Prvios population-based studies demonstrated that the annual incidence of intracranial meningiomas was 1.2-3.1/100,000 population. In particular, the incidence of this disease among the elderly is high. Recently, increased life expectancy and greater use of diagnostic radiological imaging led to an increased incidence in the diagnosis of intracranial meningiomas, both symptomatic and asymptomatic, in the elderly...

Emergency anesthesia in elderly patients aged 65 years and older is complex. The occurrence of intraoperative incidents and arterial hypotension is conditioned by patients' initial health status and by the quality of intraoperative management. This study aimed to determine the incidence of intra-anesthetic arterial hypotension in elderly patients during emergency surgery and to assess the involvement of certain factors in its occurrence: age, sex, patient's history, ASA class, anesthetic technique. We conducted a retrospective descriptive and analytical study in the Emergency Surgery Department at the Aristide Le Dantec University Hospital from 1 March 2014 to 28 February 2015...

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) has become well established technique of the treatment of severe acute respiratory failure (Veno-Venous ECMO) or circulatory failure (Veno-Arterial ECMO) which enables effective blood oxygenation and carbon dioxide removal for several weeks. Veno-Venous ECMO (V-V ECMO ) is a lifesaving treatment of patients in whom severe ARDS makes artificial lung ventilation unlikely to provide satisfactory blood oxygenation for preventing further vital organs damage and progression to death...

In 2016, the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology, Schaumburg, IL, acquired an unpublished 11-page manuscript written by Charles Thomas Jackson, MD, (1805-1880). The undated manuscript, now fully transcribed, provides Jackson's perspective of the first 6 weeks of the ether discovery, from early October 1846 to mid-November 1846. It chronicles Jackson's observations and discussions pertaining to United States Patent No. 4848, granted to him and William Thomas Green Morton, MD, (1819-1868). Jackson's manuscript did not yield new information on the discovery of surgical etherization or the subsequent dispute between him and Morton...

BACKGROUND: Anesthesiology residency programs may need new simulation-based programs to prepare residents for the new Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) component of the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) Primary Certification process. The design of such programs may require significant resources, including faculty time, expertise, and funding, as are currently needed for structured oral examination (SOE) preparation. This survey analyzed the current state of US-based anesthesiology residency programs regarding simulation-based educational programming for SOE and OSCE preparation...

Like most viral illnesses in humans, supportive care of the patient is the mainstay of clinical care for patients with Ebola virus disease (EVD). The goal is to maintain and sustain the patient until a specific immune response develops and clears the viral infection. Clearly, antiviral therapy may eventually help speed recovery, but supportive care will likely always be the centerpiece of care of the patient with EVD. While terrible in terms of human suffering and loss, the EVD outbreak of 2014-2016 provided an unheralded opportunity to advance our understanding in the care of patients (WHO 2016)...

Randomised, controlled trials have been retracted after publication because of data fabrication and inadequate ethical approval. Fabricated data have included baseline variables, for instance, age, height or weight. Statistical tests can determine the probability of the distribution of means, given their standard deviation and the number of participants in each group. Randomised, controlled trials have been retracted after the data distributions have been calculated as improbable. Most retracted trials have been written by anaesthetists and published by specialist anaesthetic journals...

PURPOSE: This study explored how anesthesiologists understand situational awareness (SA) and how they think SA is learned, taught, and assessed. METHODS: Semi-structured interviews were performed with practicing anesthesiologists involved in teaching. This qualitative study was conducted using constructivist grounded theory techniques (i.e., line-by-line coding, memoing, and constant comparison) in a thematic analysis of interview transcripts. Group meetings were held to develop and review themes emerging from the data...

BACKGROUND: Supraglottic airway devices commonly are used for securing the airway during general anesthesia. Occasionally, intubation with an endotracheal tube through a supraglottic airway is indicated. Reported success rates for blind intubation range from 15 to 97%. The authors thus investigated as their primary outcome the fraction of patients who could be intubated blindly with an Air-Qsp supraglottic airway device (Mercury Medical, USA). Second, the authors investigated the influence of muscle relaxation on air leakage pressure, predictors for failed blind intubation, and associated complications of using the supraglottic airway device...

Preoperative identification of patients with an increased risk for perioperative pulmonary complications is crucial for the anesthesiological management. These complications were underestimated in the past, but are associated with an increased morbidity and mortality when occuring. Patients with preexisting pulmonary diseases are at increased risk for perioperative pulmonary complications. In the recent past more emphasis was placed on preoperative optimization of the underlying pulmonary diseases like COPD or Asthma bronchiale...

BACKGROUND: The advent of portable ultrasound machines in recent years has led to greater availability of focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) in the perioperative and critical care setting. To our knowledge, its use in the perioperative setting among anesthesiologists remains undefined. We sought to assess the use of FoCUS by members of the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA) in clinical practice, to identify variations in its application, to outline limits to its use, and to understand the level of training of physicians using this technology...

BACKGROUND: Introductions are the first item of the time-out in the World Health Organization Surgical Safety Checklist (SSC). It has yet to be established that surgical teams use colleagues' names or consider the use of names important. A study was conducted to determine if using the SSC has a measurable impact on name retention and to assess if operating room (OR) personnel believe it is important to know the names of their colleagues or for their colleagues to know theirs. METHODS: All OR personnel were individually interviewed at the end of 25 surgical cases in which the SSC was used...
