Klinik für Anästhesie und Intensivtherapie, Universitätsklinikum Gießen und Marburg, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Baldingerstraße, 35043, Marburg, Deutschland.

Background: Rebound pain as a side effect of regional anaesthesia is an excessive sensation of pain after the effect of local anaesthesia has subsided. This sensation goes well beyond the normal wound pain following a surgical intervention. This phenomenon has entered focus of research in the past 10 years now, but the specific causes are so far unclear and there are still no targeted treatment recommendations. Read More

[Liposomal bupivacaine-No breakthrough in postoperative pain management].

Anaesthesist 2022 Apr 25. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Klinik für Anästhesie und Intensivtherapie Universitätsklinikum Marburg, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Baldingerstraße, 35033, Marburg, Deutschland.

One of the main limitations concerning the use of local anesthetics is due to their restricted duration of action. In recent years, liposomal formulations with prolonged release kinetics have been developed to extend the pharmacological duration of action of the 1‑stage peripheral regional anesthesia (single-shot procedure) and thus bring about a longer duration of action. The focus here is particularly on achieving postoperative freedom from pain for at least 24 h (or even better 48 h) and thus early mobilization of patients using on-demand medication causing (at most) minor local sensory blockade without causing motor impairments (at least that is the ideal).

[Noninvasive respiratory support and invasive ventilation in COVID‑19 : Where do we stand today?]

Anaesthesist 2022 05 9;71(5):333-339. Epub 2022 Apr 9.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, LMU Klinikum, Marchioninistraße 15, 81377, München, Deutschland.

The controversy surrounding ventilation in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues. Early in the pandemic it was postulated that the high intensive care unit (ICU) mortality may have been due to too early intubation. As the pandemic progressed recommendations changed and the use of noninvasive respiratory support (NIRS) increased; however, this did not result in a clear reduction in ICU mortality. Read More

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 420, 69120, Heidelberg, Deutschland.

Porphyrias are a group of rare, mostly inherited metabolic disorders of heme biosynthesis. Each type of porphyria results from a specific deficiency of one of the pathway enzymes, causing a characteristic accumulation and excretion of heme precursors. Diagnosis is confirmed by the biochemical detection of these porphyrins and the precursors in urine, feces and blood. Read More

Klinik und Poliklinik für Anästhesiologie, Intensivmedizin, Notfallmedizin und Schmerztherapie, Universitätsklinikum Würzburg, Oberdürrbacher Str. 6, 97080, Würzburg, Deutschland.

The implementation of patient blood management (PBM) is increasingly becoming standard in operative medicine. Recently, interest has also been shown for the vulnerable collective of pregnant women and neonates. As the information regarding anesthesiological procedures for pregnant women and the peripartum period including an informed consent process should be carried out long before childbirth, this provides a good possibility in this connection to incorporate PBM.

[Hypoxic and hypoglycemic brain damage as a result of an adrenal cortex crisis-An important differential diagnosis in cases of unspecific symptoms].

Anaesthesist 2022 Feb 28. Epub 2022 Feb 28.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Intensivmedizin, Notfallmedizin und Schmerztherapie, Bundeswehrkrankenhaus Ulm, Oberer Eselsberg 40, 89081, Ulm, Deutschland.

Acute adrenal cortex insufficiency is a rare disease, which is hard to diagnose because of its diffuse symptoms. Symptoms, such as general weakness, nausea or vomiting, fatigue, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, hypoglycemia and pronounced hypotension up to shock can be crucial in the diagnosis of an adrenal cortex crisis. The underlying disease of adrenal cortex insufficiency is also characterized by not always obvious symptoms, which are differently expressed depending on whether it is the primary or secondary type.
