A retrospective audit of postoperative days alive and out of hospital, including before and after implementation of the WHO surgical safety checklist.

Anaesthesia 2021 Aug 1. Epub 2021 Aug 1.

Department of Anaesthesia, Auckland City Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand.

We implemented the World Health Organization surgical safety checklist at Auckland City Hospital from November 2007. We hypothesised that the checklist would reduce postoperative mortality and increase days alive and out of hospital, both measured to 90 postoperative days. We compared outcomes for cohorts who had surgery during 18-month periods before vs. Read More

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction following the use of a supraglottic airway device during general anaesthesia: a prospective observational study.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 21. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Department of Anaesthesia, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, Coventry, UK.

Supraglottic airway devices are commonly used to manage the airway during general anaesthesia. There are sporadic case reports of temporomandibular joint dysfunction and dislocation following supraglottic airway device use. We conducted a prospective observational study of adult patients undergoing elective surgery where a supraglottic airway device was used as the primary airway device. Read More

A quantitative evaluation of aerosol generation during supraglottic airway insertion and removal.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 20. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Pain and Critical Care Sciences and School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK.

Many guidelines consider supraglottic airway use to be an aerosol-generating procedure. This status requires increased levels of personal protective equipment, fallow time between cases and results in reduced operating theatre efficiency. Aerosol generation has never been quantitated during supraglottic airway use. Read More

The right supraclavicular fossa ultrasound view for correct catheter tip positioning in right subclavian vein catheterisation: a prospective observational study.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 14. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University and Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Skane University Hospital, Lund, Sweden.

Central venous catheter misplacement is common (approximately 7%) after right subclavian vein catheterisation. To avoid it, ultrasound-guided tip navigation may be used during the catheterisation procedure to help direct the guidewire towards the lower superior vena cava. We aimed to determine the number of central venous catheter misplacements when using the right supraclavicular fossa ultrasound view to aid guidewire positioning in right infraclavicular subclavian vein catheterisation.

Functional decline after major elective non-cardiac surgery: a multicentre prospective cohort study.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 13. Epub 2021 Jul 13.

Department of Anesthesia, St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Self-reported postoperative functional recovery is an important patient-centred outcome that is rarely measured or considered in research and decision-making. We conducted a secondary analysis of the measurement of exercise tolerance before surgery (METS) study for associations of peri-operative variables with functional decline after major non-cardiac surgery. Patients who were at least 40 years old, had or were at risk of, coronary artery disease and who were scheduled for non-cardiac surgery were recruited. Read More

Ergonomics in the anaesthetic workplace: Guideline from the Association of Anaesthetists.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 12. Epub 2021 Jul 12.

Department of Anaesthesia, Edinburgh, UK.

Ergonomics in relation to anaesthesia is the scientific study of the interaction between anaesthetists and their workspace environment in order to promote safety, performance and well-being. The foundation for avoiding pain or discomfort at work is to adopt and maintain a good posture, whether sitting or standing. Anaesthetists should aim to keep their posture as natural and neutral as possible. Read More

Supraclavicular versus infraclavicular approach for ultrasound-guided right subclavian venous catheterisation: a randomised controlled non-inferiority trial.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 6. Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Infraclavicular and supraclavicular approaches are used for subclavian venous catheterisation. We hypothesised that the supraclavicular approach is non-inferior to the infraclavicular approach in terms of safety during ultrasound-guided right subclavian venous catheterisation. We randomly allocated 401 neurosurgical patients undergoing ultrasound-guided right subclavian venous catheterisation into supraclavicular (n = 200) and infraclavicular (n = 201) groups. Read More

Treatment threshold for intra-operative hypotension in clinical practice-a prospective cohort study in older patients in the UK.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 6. Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Peninsula Medical School, University of Plymouth, Plymouth, UK.

Intra-operative hypotension frequently complicates anaesthesia in older patients and is implicated in peri-operative organ hypoperfusion and injury. The prevalence and corresponding treatment thresholds of hypotension are incompletely described in the UK. This study aimed to identify prevalence of intra-operative hypotension and its treatment thresholds in UK practice. Read More

Impact of the pericapsular nerve group (PENG) block on postoperative analgesia and functional recovery following total hip arthroplasty: a randomised, observer-masked, controlled trial.

Anaesthesia 2021 Jul 1. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Unit of Anesthesia, Intensive Care and Pain Management, Department of Medicine, Campus Bio-Medico University, Rome, Italy.

The pericapsular nerve group (PENG) block is a novel regional anaesthesia technique that aims to provide hip analgesia with preservation of motor function, although evidence is currently lacking. In this single-centre, observer-masked, randomised controlled trial, patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty received pericapsular nerve group block or no block (control group). Primary outcome measure was maximum pain scores (0-10 numeric rating scale) measured in the first 48 h after surgery. Read More

Factors associated with mortality in patients with COVID-19 admitted to intensive care: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Anaesthesia 2021 Sep 29;76(9):1224-1232. Epub 2021 Jun 29.

Department of Anaesthesia and Peri-operative Medicine, Groote Schuur Hospital, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa.

Identification of high-risk patients admitted to intensive care with COVID-19 may inform management strategies. The objective of this meta-analysis was to determine factors associated with mortality among adults with COVID-19 admitted to intensive care by searching databases for studies published between 1 January 2020 and 6 December 2020. Observational studies of COVID-19 adults admitted to critical care were included. Read More
