[Escalation and de-escalation concept for intensive care beds in hospitals reserved for COVID-19].

Anaesthesist 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Klinikumvorstand, Universitätsklinikum Ulm, Ulm, Deutschland.

Background: Since the spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrom Corona Virus 2 (SARS-CoV‑2) in Germany, intensive care beds have been kept free for patients suffering from Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19). Also, after the number of infections had declined, intensive care beds were kept free prophylactically; however, the percentage of beds reserved for COVID-19 differ in the individual federal states in Germany. The aim of this article is to define a necessary clearance quota of intensive beds for COVID-19 patients in Germany. Read More

Extended neuromonitoring in aortic arch surgery : A case series.

Anaesthesist 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University Hospital Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

Background: Aortic arch repair for aortic dissection is still associated with a high mortality rate. Providing adequate means of neuromonitoring to guide cerebral hemodynamics is advantageous, especially during selective anterior cerebral perfusion (SACP).

Objective: We aimed to investigate an easy multimodal neuromonitoring set-up consisting of processed electroencephalography (EEG), near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), and transcranial doppler sonography (TCD). Read More

Anaesthesist 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, Hannover Medical School, Carl-Neuberg-Straße 1, 30625, Hannover, Germany.

Background: Emergency medical services work in the environment of high responsibility teams and have to act under unpredictable working conditions. Stress occurs and has potential of negative effects on tasks, teamwork, prioritization processes and cognitive control. Stress is not exclusively dictated by the situation-the individuals rate the situation of having the necessary skills that a particular situation demands. Read More

[The quantitative EEG in electroencephalogram-based brain monitoring during general anesthesia].

Anaesthesist 2021 Jun 10;70(6):531-547. Epub 2021 May 10.

Universitätsklinik für Anästhesiologie und Schmerztherapie, Inselspital, Universitätsspital Bern, Freiburgstr., 3010, Bern, Schweiz.

The electroencephalogram (EEG) is increasingly being used in the clinical routine of anesthesia in German-speaking countries. In over 90% of patients the frontal EEG changes somewhat predictably in response to administration of the normally used anesthetic agents (propofol and volatile gasses). An adequate depth of anesthesia and appropriate concentrations of anesthetics in the brain generate mostly frontal oscillations between 8 and 12 Hz as well as slow delta waves between 0. Read More

[Noninvasive ventilation and positional therapy in COVID-19 : Case report and literature review].

Anaesthesist 2021 May 7. Epub 2021 May 7.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Helios Universitätsklinikum Wuppertal, Wuppertal, Deutschland.

If noninvasive ventilation (NIV or high-flow CPAP) fails in severe cases of COVID-19, escalation of treatment with orotracheal intubation and intermitted prone positioning is provided as standard care. The present case reports show two COVID-19 patients with severe refractory hypoxemia despite NIV treatment during the first wave (first half year 2020) and the resulting influence on the treatment regimen during the second wave (since October 2020) of the pandemic. Both patients (aged 63 years and 77 years) voluntarily positioned themselves on the side or in a prone position without prior sedation and oral intubation. Read More

Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Palliativmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf, Medizinische Fakultät, Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Deutschland.

Background: An increasing number of patients reach the final stage of heart failure with heart transplantation as the only curative treatment. Mechanical circulatory support, such as left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) are becoming increasingly more important at this stage of the disease. An LVAD improves the quality of life and prolongs the lifespan. Read More

Early in-hospital course of critically ill nontrauma patients in a resuscitation room of a German emergency department (OBSERvE2 study).

Anaesthesist 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Emergency Department, University Hospital of Düsseldorf, Heinrich-Heine-University, Moorenstraße 5, 40225, Düsseldorf, Germany.

Background: Management of critically ill nontrauma (CINT) patients in the resuscitation room of the emergency department (ED) is very challenging.

[Aortoesophageal fistula-A rare differential diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal bleeding].

Anaesthesist 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Intensiv‑, Notfall‑, Transfusionsmedizin und Schmerztherapie Evangelisches Klinikum Bethel, Universitätsklinikum OWL, Universität Bielefeld, Campus Bielefeld-Bethel, Burgsteig 13, 33617, Bielefeld, Deutschland.

Approximately 1% of all patients are admitted to an emergency room for upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Differential diagnostics reveal an aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) as the cause of the bleeding in very few cases. Despite increasing means of diagnostics and treatment, mortality is high in patients with AEF even under maximum medical care. Read More

[The position of the head during treatment in the emergency room-an explorative analysis of immobilization of the cervical spine].

Anaesthesist 2021 Apr 28. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Zentrum für Wirbelsäulenchirurgie, Klinik für Unfallchirurgie und Orthopädie, BG Klinik Ludwigshafen, 67071, Ludwigshafen, Deutschland.

Background: Immobilization of the cervical spine is a standard procedure in emergency medicine mostly achieved via a cervical collar. In the emergency room other forms of immobilization are utilized as cervical collars have certain drawbacks. The present study aimed to provide preliminary data on the efficiency of immobilization in the emergency room by analyzing the residual spinal motion of the patient's head on different kinds of head rests.

[Prehospital treatment of tension pneumothorax in children-which decisions do we make? : Results of a survey among German emergency physicians].

Anaesthesist 2021 Apr 23. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Operative Intensivmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Mannheim, Theodor-Kutzer-Ufer 1-3, 68167, Mannheim, Deutschland.

Background: The preclinical treatment of a traumatic or spontaneous tension pneumothorax remains a particular challenge in pediatric patients. Currently recommended interventions for decompression are either finger thoracostomy or needle decompression. Due to the tiny intercostal spaces, finger thoracostomy may not be feasible in small children and surgical preparation may be necessary. Read More

Short-term outcome and characteristics of critical care for nontrauma patients in the emergency department.

Anaesthesist 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Kliniken Maria Hilf, Zentrum für klinische Akut- und Notfallmedizin, Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus der RWTH Aachen, Mönchengladbach, Germany.

Background: Emergency medical care for critically ill nontrauma patients (CINT) varies between different emergency departments (ED) and healthcare systems, while resuscitation of trauma patients is always performed within the ED. In many ED CINT are treated and stabilized while in many German smaller hospitals CINT are transferred directly to the intensive care unit (ICU) without performing critical care measures in the ED. Little is known about the resuscitation room management of CINT regarding patient characteristics and outcome although bigger hospitals perform ED resuscitation of CINT in routine care. Read More
