Perioperative airway management in the case of severe tracheal narrowing and deviation caused by multinodular goitre: case report

Journal of Anesthesiology & Clinical Science

Abstract Background: Worldwide, endemic goiter is prevalent and is often caused by inadequate iodine intake. On the other hand, iodine may not be deficient in some parts of the world, yet goiters still occur due to the presence of goitrogens in the diet which eventually leads to the thyroid gland enlargement by interfering with normal production of thyroid hormone. In Sub-Saharan Africa, iodine deficiency is widespread and is of public health concern. However, limited diagnostic and management possibilities in this area often result in long standing goiters which eventually develops into large goiters that consequently compress the airway. Case presentation: A 74-year-old woman diagnosed with multi nodular goiter was anesthetized for sub-total thyroidectomy. The goiter was large and multi nodular in nature, pushing the trachea to the left side of the neck. This subsequently led to tracheal compression, narrowing, and deviation. During induction of general anesthesia, intubation using flexible fibreoptic bronchoscopy techniques was impossible. Tracheal intubation was achieved via tracheostomy using size 7-mm cuffed endotracheal tube. We present this case at length and describe how the airway was secured during and after surgery. Conclusion: Airway management for thyroidectomy involving large goiters with severely compromised airways could be considered for tracheostomy in most hospitals in developing countries where advanced anesthesia equipment are not readily available. Key words: Multinodular goiter, airway, thyroidectomy, intubation, tracheostomy

Intraoperative pain assessment: the use of anesthetized patient pain scale and cerebral state monitor

Journal of Anesthesiology

Abstract: Background - Pain control in surgical patients remains problematic globally. Intraoperative pain assessment poses significant challenge to many anesthesiologists in poorly resourced countries where monitors andexperts are limited. Due to poor intraoperative pain assessment and management, many patients wake up from anesthesia after surgery experiencing moderate to severe pain. It has been reported that about 56% of surgical patients cite pain as their primary concern after surgery. The aim of this study was touse a novel intraoperative pain assessment tool (APPS) and depth of anesthesia monitor (CSM) to assess and score pain in patients undergoing orthopedic procedures under general anesthesia. Methods - Data was prospectively collected for 12-months from 246 patients, aged 20 - 81 years who were undergoing orthopedic surgical procedures. Initial pain intensity was scored using Anesthetized Patients Pain Scale (APPS). The depth of anesthesia was assessed using a CSM prior to pain assessment during surgery. Fentanyl was administered and the pain and depth of anesthesia re-evaluated after 5 to 10min. Results - About 75.6% of patients scored moderate to severe pain with their depth of anesthesia ranging 37-89 score.While 20.7% scored moderate pain with a mean scoreof 9.56 at the initial pain assessment. A dose of fentanyl, 30 - 50 mcg was administered for pain treatment intraoperatively. Pain was reevaluated after treatment. About 31.3% scored no pain 49.6% scored moderate pain and 19.1% scored moderate to severe pain. The mean pain intensity scored after treatment was 7.30. Conclusions - Despite adequate depth ofanesthesia observed during surgery about 68.7% of surgical patients experienced moderate to severe pain. The use of both APPS and CSM offered adequate intraoperative pain and anesthesiamanagement. Our novel model, APPS has great prospects with clinical application for intraoperative pain assessment.

Knowledge and attitude of HPV among Chinese and African undergraduate medical students studying in China

Journal of Education Research and Behavioral Sciences

The study aimed at exploring knowledge and attitudeof HPV among undergraduate medical students at Dalian Medical University. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted at the Dalian Medical University involving undergraduate medical students aged less than 30 years. A self-administered questionnaire was given to each of the 200 undergraduate medical students which were divided into two groups; Chinese and Africans. The response ratewas 90% (n=180). Just over half of both groups knew about HPV {Chinese 61.2% vs African 58.5%, p>0.05}. Prevention of cervical cancer by delayed sexual debut was poorly chosen by the Chinese group(Chinese 3.1% vs African 40.2%, p<0.05). HPV transmission was mainly believed to be transmitted sexually by vaginal intercourse (Chinese 82.7 % vs African 56.1%, p<0.05) while the skin contact was poorly chosen by both groups (Chinese 13.3% vs African 11%, p>0.05). More effort is needed to educate medical students as their mean score on HPV and cervical cancer screening and vaccination was either low or moderate. They expressed the need for an increase effort in educating matters pertaining to HPV and cervical cancer. Media can be used at the universities to educate these young people as it has an influence on their sexual behaviour. Key words: HIV, HPV, medical students, reproductive health, STIs.

ANESTHESIA FOR GASTROSCHISIS/OMPHALOCELE: CHALLENGES AND COMPLICATIONS AT TAMALE TEACHING HOSPITAL, GHANA

America Sociaty for Pediatric Anesthesiologists

Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) is the regional referral center for much of the remote northern region of Ghana, an area populated by several million people •Despite offering basic pediatric surgical services, the hospital lacks physician anesthesiologists and relies upon nurse anesthetists •Administering anesthesia to neonates in TTH presents many challenges to the anesthesia provider. •Most neonates with gastroschisis/omphalocele (G&O) go undiagnosed prenatally •Co-morbidities at presentation include systemic infection and dehydration. •The hospital currently lacks resources to effectively treat such neonates without high risk of further complications. •Morbidity and mortality resulting G&O are frequently increased by delay in presentation to hospital caused by inappropriate local beliefs and superstitions
