Intensivmedizin, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Campus Charité Mitte, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Deutschland.

Prevention of phantom limb pain is one of the biggest and still largely unsolved challenges in perioperative medicine. Despite many study efforts and optimization of postoperative pain treatment over the last 30 years, a significant reduction in the incidence of phantom limb pain has not been achieved. Current studies have also shown that at least 50% of patients develop phantom pain after 6 months. Read More

[Peripheral truncal blocks-Overview and assessment].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Klinik für Anästhesie und Intensivtherapie, UKGM Gießen-Marburg, Standort Marburg, Baldingerstr., 35033, Marburg, Deutschland.

By implementation of sonography for regional anesthesia, truncal blocks became more relevant in the daily practice of anesthesia and pain therapy. Due to visualized needle guidance ultrasound supports more safety and helps to avoid complications during needle placement. Additionally, complex punctures are possible that were associated with higher risk using landmarks alone. Read More

The effectiveness of an oral opioid rescue medication algorithm for postoperative pain management compared to PCIA : A cohort analysis.

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul 2. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care, Annastift, Hannover, Anna-von-Borries-Straße 1-7, 30625, Hannover, Germany.

Background: Standard protocols or algorithms are considered essential to ensure adequate analgesia. Germany has widely adopted postoperative protocols for pain management including oral opioids for rescue medication, but the effectiveness of such protocols has only been evaluated longitudinally in a before and after setting. The aim of this cohort analysis was to compare the effectiveness of an oral opioid rescue medication algorithm for postoperative management of pain to the gold standard of patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA).

Klinik und Poliklinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivtherapie, Universitätsmedizin Rostock, Schillingallee 35, 18057, Rostock, Deutschland.

Perioperative phases of hypotension are associated with an increase in postoperative complications and organ damage. Whereas some years ago hemodynamic stabilization was primarily carried out by volume supplementation, in recent years the use and dosing of cardiovascular-active substances has significantly increased. But like intravascular volume therapy, also substances with a cardiovascular effect have therapeutic margins, and thus, potential side effects. Read More

[TEG-guided treatment of a dabigatran overdose in a patient with acute kidney failure].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jun 20. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Klinik für Anästhesie, operative Intensiv- und Palliativmedizin, Klinikum Würzburg Mitte - Standort Juliusspital, Juliuspromenade 19, 97070, Würzburg, Deutschland.

This article presents the case of a multimorbid male patient with an accidental dabigatran overdose caused by kidney failure in the context of an acute intestinal disorder. After effective initial antagonizing of the dabigatran effect using idarucizumab a dabigatran rebound was detected caused by a single hemodialysis leading to a severe intrapulmonary hemorrhage. As dabigatran plasma level testing was not available and conventional coagulation analysis was out of interpretable range due to the impact of dabigatran, continuous thrombelastography (TEG) was used to detect the effect of dabigatran and monitor the treatment results.

[Stressors for patients in the intensive care unit : An analysis taking controllability into consideration].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jun 2. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivmedizin, Universität zu Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538, Lübeck, Deutschland.

Objective: Studies on stress factors for patients in intensive care units (ICU) have so far concentrated on whether certain stressors have occurred or how stressful they were. There are no studies on stress for patients in ICUs that measured both the perception of stress and the chances perceived to control it; however, loss of control can result in long-term psychopathological consequences, such as depression or posttraumatic stress disorder. Therefore, a questionnaire was developed to evaluate the influence of controllability on perception of stress. Read More

Anaesthesist 2020 May 23. Epub 2020 May 23.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Deutschland.

Critical incidents in hospitals can often be predicted hours before the event and can mostly be detected earlier and presumably avoided. Quality management programs from US hospitals to reduce deaths following a severe postoperative complication (failure to rescue, FTR), have in this form not yet become established in Germany. A sensitive score-based early warning system for looming complications is decisive for successful in-hospital emergency management. Read More

[Is it really an acute respiratory distress syndrome? : Current definitions, pathophysiology and differentiated diagnoses].

Authors:
R Dembinski

Anaesthesist 2020 Jun;69(6):439-450

Klinik für Intensivmedizin und Notfallmedizin, Klinikum Bremen Mitte, St. Jürgen-Str. 1, 28177, Bremen, Deutschland.

Although the Berlin definition of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is generally recognized, the differentiation from other diseases with severe gas exchange disturbances is often difficult in clinical practice. In particular, the assessment of radiological findings and identification of primary noncardiogenic lung edema pose problems. In ARDS typical inflammatory processes can be found with involvement of activated neutrophilic granulocytes. Read More

[Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and hyperammonemia: two entities causing cerebral edema and status epilepticus in a female patient after lung transplantation].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul 21;69(7):506-513. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Hugstetter Straße 55, 79106, Freiburg, Deutschland.

A 58-year-old woman developed rapidly progressive neurological symptoms and finally loss of vigilance 5 weeks following primarily successful lung transplantation. A posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) under treatment with tacrolimus as well as hyperammonemia due to sepsis with Ureaplasma urealyticum could be identified as the causes. Infections with Ureaplasma, bacteria which produce ammonia as a product of metabolism, are increasingly being identified in immunocompromised people by specific PCR (polymerase chain reaction) procedures and should routinely be taken into consideration as the cause of unspecific neurological symptoms.

Severe pulmonary impairment can occur after traumatic brain injury or stroke. The resulting brain-lung interactions represent key points for the treatment and the subsequent outcome of the patient. Established treatment approaches, such as permissive hypercapnia and prone positioning, present the intensive care physician with divergent treatment goals in these patients with partially increased intracranial pressure.

[Perioperative blood pressure management : What is the optimal pressure?]

Anaesthesist 2020 Apr 15. Epub 2020 Apr 15.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivtherapie, Universitätsmedizin Rostock, Schillingallee 35, 18057, Rostock, Deutschland.

Background: Measurement of blood pressure is part of standard monitoring procedures in anesthesia, in addition to the other vital parameters of heart frequency and peripheral oxygen saturation. In recent years the relevance of the duration and extent of perioperative episodes of hypotension for the occurrence of postoperative complications or even increased mortality have become the focus of scientific investigations.

Objective: The aim of this review is to briefly recapitulate the physiological aspects of blood pressure and to describe the pathophysiology and risk factors of perioperative hypotension. Read More

Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (AEP) is a rare disease characteristically involving eosinophilic infiltration of lung parenchyma as well as fever, dyspnea, and coughing. A differentiation is made between primary and secondary AEP depending on the underlying etiology. Substances that most frequently cause secondary AEP are antibiotics, such as the lipopeptide daptomycin. Read More
