The cardiovascular effects of crystalloid administration in endoscopy patients.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 15;47(1):45-51. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Anaesthesia, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

Intravenous fluids are commonly administered for patients having colonoscopy despite relatively little data to support this practice. It is unclear what, if any, effect crystalloid administration has on stroke volume and cardiac output in patients who are fasting and have had bowel preparation agents. We aimed to assess the physiological effect of 10 ml/kg of crystalloid administration in colonoscopy patients on haemodynamic parameters including stroke volume, stroke volume variation and cardiac output, as measured with transthoracic echocardiography.

Modern technology-derived normative values for cerebral tissue oxygen saturation in adults.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 19;47(1):69-75. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

1 Department of Intensive Care, Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Modern near-infrared spectroscopy technology is increasingly adopted to measure cerebral tissue oxygen saturation. However, the normal range of cerebral tissue oxygen saturation in adults with such technology is unknown. We sought to measure cerebral tissue oxygen saturation in healthy volunteers using the novel O3 Regional Oximetry® device (Masimo Corporation, Irvine, CA, USA) and assess its relationship with key physical and haemodynamic characteristics.

A case series of anaphylaxis to chlorhexidine-impregnated central venous catheters in cardiac surgical patients.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 13;47(1):85-89. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia, Fiona Stanley Hospital, Perth, Australia.

We report a case series of anaphylaxis to chlorhexidine-coated central venous catheters (CVCs) when used in cardiac surgical patients in our institution. Our experience, together with increasing reports of anaphylaxis to chlorhexidine-coated CVCs from other sources indicates that chlorhexidine-coated CVCs are not without additional risk. Attempts to lower rates of catheter-related bloodstream infection has led to the widespread adoption of chlorhexidine-coated CVCs in the perioperative and critical care setting, including for routine cardiac surgery.

Frequency and clinical spectrum of in-flight medical incidents during domestic and international flights.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 13;47(1):16-22. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

2 Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, The University of Queensland, Australia.

Most medical practitioners are not specifically trained to diagnose or manage in-flight medical incidents, yet there may occur a moral obligation to do so when least expected. We felt that knowledge of the frequency of emergency versus non-serious medical incidents, in addition to the clinical spectrum of incidents most often encountered, would be of interest to medical practitioners and, in particular, critical care physicians, who happen to find themselves asked to assist with such events. To this end we collaborated with the Department of Medical Services of a major Australian airline to define the incidence, severity, and type of all in-flight medical events encountered over the course of a year's flights.

High serum potassium level is associated with successful electrical cardioversion for new-onset atrial fibrillation in the intensive care unit: A retrospective observational study.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 13;47(1):52-59. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical & Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, Japan.

Electrical cardioversion (ECV) is a potentially life-saving treatment for haemodynamically unstable new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF); however, its efficacy is unsatisfactory. We aimed to elucidate the factors associated with successful ECV and prognosis in patients with AF. This retrospective observational study was conducted in two mixed intensive care units (ICUs) in a university hospital. Read More

6 Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

Major bleeding in noncardiac surgery is common and associated with serious complications. The antifibrinolytic agent tranexamic acid (TXA) reduces bleeding and may reduce the risk of these complications. TXA also may have immunomodulatory effects that could reduce surgical site infection.

The effect of guideline implementation on discharge analgesia prescribing (two years on).

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 13;47(1):40-44. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine, Royal Perth Hospital, Australia.

The provision of appropriate discharge analgesia can be challenging and is often prescribed by some of the most junior members of the medical team. Opioid abuse has been considered a growing public health crisis and physician overprescribing is a major contributor. In 2015 an initial audit of discharge analgesia at the Royal Perth Hospital led to the development of discharge analgesia guidelines. Read More

A comparison of different modes of pneumatic compression on muscle tissue oxygenation: An intraparticipant, randomised, controlled volunteer study.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 14;47(1):23-31. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1 Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Royal Perth Hospital, Perth, Australia.

Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) to the lower limbs is widely used as a mechanical means to prevent deep vein thrombosis in hospitalised patients. Due to a theoretical concern about impairing blood flow, thromboembolic-deterrent stockings and IPC are considered contraindicated for patients with peripheral vascular diseases by some clinicians. This study assessed whether IPC would alter peripheral limb muscle tissue oxygenation (StO), and whether such changes were different during 10 minutes of sequential and single-compartment compressions.

Masseter muscle rigidity and the role of DNA analysis to confirm malignant hyperthermia susceptibility.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2019 Jan 15;47(1):60-68. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

4 Institute of Fundamental Sciences, Massey University, New Zealand.

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is an uncommon, autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal muscle, triggered by inhalational anaesthetics or depolarizing muscle relaxants. Masseter muscle rigidity (MMR) can be regarded as potentially a preceding sign for an MH reaction. Susceptibility to MH can be determined by the in vitro contracture test (IVCT) or DNA analysis where a familial variant is known. Read More

The effect of preload on electromyographic train-of-four ratio at the first dorsal interosseous muscle during spontaneous recovery from neuromuscular blockade.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Nov;46(6):614-619

Specialist Anaesthetist, Department of Anaesthesia, Sydney Adventist Hospital; Associate Professor, Sydney Adventist Clinical School, University of Sydney; Sydney, New South Wales.

Accurate and reliable quantitative neuromuscular function monitoring is desirable for the optimal management of neuromuscular blockade, selection of the most appropriate reversal agent and dosage, and assessing the completeness of reversal to exclude residual neuromuscular blockade. Applying preload to the thumb may affect the precision of electromyography. This study compared the precision and agreement of electromyography with and without preload during recovery from non-depolarising neuromuscular blockade. Read More

Peripheral tissue oxygenation and the number of organs transplanted per donor.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Nov;46(6):601-607

Critical Care Medicine, Akron Children's Hospital, Akron; Lifebanc; Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Current donor management practices target macrohaemodynamic parameters, but it is unclear if this leads to improvements in microvascular perfusion and tissue oxygenation; the latter may have more impact on organ status. In a recent preclinical study we determined that brain death impaired tissue perfusion and oxygen utilisation in swine while pharmacologic correction of these deficits improved organ function and reduced markers of tissue injury. As a first step in translating the preclinical findings, we conducted a prospective observational study to determine if there was an association between peripheral tissue oxygenation (measured by near-infrared spectroscopy) in deceased by neurological criteria human donors and the number of organs transplanted.

Postoperative cognitive dysfunction after sevoflurane or propofol general anaesthesia in combination with spinal anaesthesia for hip arthroplasty.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Nov;46(6):596-600

Associate Professor, Department of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine, St Vincent's Hospital; Perioperative and Pain Medicine Unit, Melbourne Medical School, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria.

It is unknown if the type of general anaesthetic used for maintenance of anaesthesia affects the incidence of postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD). The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of POCD in patients administered either sevoflurane or propofol for maintenance of anaesthesia during total hip replacement surgery. Following administration of a spinal anaesthetic, patients received either sevoflurane (n=121) or propofol (n=171) at the discretion of the anaesthetist for maintenance of general anaesthesia to maintain the processed electroencephalogram (bispectral index, BIS) under 60.

Professor of Intensive Care, University of New South Wales; Senior Specialist, Intensive Care Unit, St George Private Hospital; Sydney, New South Wales.

The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in critical illness is known to be high and associated with adverse clinical outcomes. Patients receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may be at increased risk of vitamin D deficiency due to high severity of acute illness. Challenges with drug dosing in ECMO patients are recognised due to increased volume of distribution and drug absorption to circuit components. Read More

Epinephrine (adrenaline) preventing recovery from intraoperative anaphylactic shock complicated by systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve with left ventricular outflow tract obstruction on transoesophageal echocardiography.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Nov;46(6):566-571

Clinician, WA Anaesthetic Allergy Clinic; Perth, Western Australia.

We describe a case of severe left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) with severe mitral incompetence due to systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral leaflet (SAM) that was recognised thanks to the immediate availability of transoesophageal echocardiography during the resuscitation of anaphylactic shock. The patient rapidly responded to cessation of the epinephrine (adrenaline) infusion and intravascular volume expansion with intravenous crystalloid. The absence of risk factors for developing SAM/LVOTO serve as a warning to clinicians to consider this diagnosis in all cases of epinephrine non-responsive anaphylactic shock. Read More

Potential consequences of high-dose infusion of ketamine for refractory status epilepticus: case reports and systematic literature review.

Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Sep;46(5):516-528

Professor, Departments of Medicine, Anesthesiology, Neurology and Neurosurgery, NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

Our goal was to provide comprehensive data on the effectiveness of ketamine in refractory status epilepticus (RSE) and to describe the potential consequences of long-term ketamine infusion. Ketamine, an N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, blocks excitatory pathways contributing to ongoing seizure. While ketamine use is standard in anaesthetic induction, no definitive protocol exists for its use in RSE, and little is known about its adverse effects in long-term, high-dose administration.
