The McGrath video laryngoscope improves glottis visualisation in the morbidly obese.
Intrathecal hydrophilic opioids show an IV morphine sparing effect and likely dose-related respiratory depression.
Intrathecal morphine 100mcg did not increase obstructive sleep apnea severity in those undergoing hip arthroplasty under spinal anesthesia.
Transversus abdominis plane block with liposomal bupivacaine improved post-caesarean section analgesia when used as part of a multimodal analgesia protocol.
Intermittent Epidural Bolus improves maternal pain control & satisfaction, and reduces labor duration, motor block & local anaesthetic consumption.
@Doctormatt interestingly, not only is the pressor-sparing & hypotension-reducing benefits of prophylactic ondansetron not seen among elderly or frail patients – but it doesn't even seem to occur outside Caesarean sections! (at least wasn't when I last looked).
Question is, can this finding be extrapolated/demonstrated in frail elderly patients receiving spinal anaesthesia for other reasons.
Mental three-dimensional rotation training is associated with improved ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia technical skills.
Early initiation of norepinephrine infusion in septic shock is associated with decreased short-term mortality.
Perioperative β-blocker use should be tailored for patient and surgical risk factors, most importantly because of the association with increased mortality and stroke when their use is generalised.
