Authors:
S Tafelski

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Schmerzambulanz der Klinik für Anästhesiologie mit S. op. 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

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

[Ophthalmological care of SARS-CoV-2 positive patients in intensive care units].

Ophthalmologe 2020 Jul;117(7):602-608

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, 60590, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland.

Early ophthalmological care of patients in intensive care with SARS-CoV‑2 (Severe-Acute-Respiratory-Syndrom-Corona-Virus-2) infections is very time-consuming; however, this approach might prevent other ophthalmological diseases, such as lagophthalmos. There is no difference in ophthalmological treatment between SARS-CoV‑2 positive and other intensive care patients. Due to the small number of cases in our observational study, a specific ophthalmological clinical pattern related to SARS-CoV‑2 infections cannot currently be identified; however, the increased occurrence of subconjunctival hemorrhage in intensive care SARS-CoV‑2 patients is remarkable.

[Drug-induced sleep endoscopy].

Laryngorhinootologie 2020 Jul 25;99(7):450-452. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

Klinik für Hals-, Nasen- und Ohrenheilkunde, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg.

Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is a procedure for the assessment of the upper airways in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and was first described by Croft and Pringle in 1991 1. So far, it has not been clarified to what extent the DISE can be compared to natural sleep. Eastwood and colleagues ultimately described a correlation in terms of the tendency to collapse in sedation and during natural sleep. Read More

[Hemoadsorption for blood purification-incomparability of clinically available procedures].

Med Klin Intensivmed Notfmed 2020 Jun 24. Epub 2020 Jun 24.

Abteilung für Anästhesiologie und Intensivmedizin, Traumazentrum Wien, Standort Meidling, Meidling, Österreich.

Background: In the field of intensive care medicine, but also increasingly in cardiac surgery, the use of adsorptive blood purification technologies for the treatment of hyperinflammatory conditions is becoming progressively more important. In addition to the CytoSorb concept, which is more and more clinically accepted and currently the most frequently used method, other companies-particularly from China-have recently entered the market with similar concepts.

Objectives: Given this, the aim of this article is to analyze the different aspects of the various hemoadsorption products offered on the market today and to take a critical look at the available evidence. Read More

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

Coagulopathy in COVID-19 and Its Implication for Safe and Efficacious Thromboprophylaxis.

Hamostaseologie 2020 Jun 4. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Institut für Experimentelle Hämatologie und Transfusionsmedizin, Universitätsklinik Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

The novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is causing a global pandemic of life-threatening multiorgan disease, called COVID-19. Accumulating evidence indicates that patients with COVID-19 are at significant risk of thromboembolic complications, mainly affecting the venous, but also the arterial vascular system. While the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) appears to be higher in patients requiring intensive care unit support compared to those admitted to general wards, recent autopsy findings and data on the timing of VTE diagnosis relative to hospitalization clearly suggest that thromboembolic events also contribute to morbidity and mortality in the ambulatory setting.

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

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

[Preclinical management of cardiac arrest-extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jun;69(6):404-413

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Intensivmedizin, Notfallmedizin und Schmerztherapie, Klinikum Kassel, Kassel, Deutschland.

Background: The chances of surviving out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) are still very low. Despite intensive efforts the outcome has remained relatively poor over many years. In specific situations, new technologies, such as extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (eCPR) could significantly improve survival with a good neurological outcome. Read More

Mortality in sepsis and septic shock in Europe, North America and Australia between 2009 and 2019- results from a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Crit Care 2020 05 19;24(1):239. Epub 2020 May 19.

CytoSorbents Europe GmbH, Müggelseedamm 131, 12587, Berlin, Germany.

Background: Sepsis and septic shock remain drivers for mortality in critically ill patients. The heterogeneity of the syndrome hinders the generation of reproducible numbers on mortality risks. Consequently, mortality rates range from 15 to 56%. Read More

[Management of patients with MELAS syndrome : A case report and general characteristics from an anesthesiological perspective].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul;69(7):471-476

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf, Moorenstr. 5, 40225, Düsseldorf, Deutschland.

Background: Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) syndrome is a rare progressive disease with acute neurological episodes caused by a mitochondriopathy. Due to a defect of oxidative phosphorylation in the respiratory chain, there is impaired mitochondrial energy production with subsequent lactic acidosis, especially in situations with increased stress. Due to the high risk of metabolic derailment MELAS syndrome is a great challenge with respect to the perioperative management of anesthesia. Read More

Preoperative neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio and platelet to lymphocyte ratio are associated with major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events in coronary heart disease patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 May 18;20(1):230. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Anaesthesiology, Heidelberg University Hospital, Im Neuenheimer Feld 110, 69120, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: Preoperative risk prediction in patients at elevated cardiovascular risk shows limited accuracy. Platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) indicate systemic inflammation. Both have been investigated for outcome prediction in the field of oncology and cardiovascular medicine, as well as risk prediction of adverse cardiovascular events in non-surgical patients at increased cardiovascular risk.

[Ultrasound visualization of the guidewire and positioning of the central venous catheter : A prospective observational study].

Anaesthesist 2020 Jul 14;69(7):489-496. Epub 2020 May 14.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Operative Intensivmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel, Arnold-Heller-Straße 3, Haus R3, 24105, Kiel, Deutschland.

Background: After insertion of a central venous catheter (CVC) the catheter position must be controlled and a pneumothorax ruled out.

Objective: The aim was to examine whether the use of two standard acoustic windows known from emergency sonography examination techniques is feasible to 1) verify the correct intravenous localization and direction of the guidewire before final CVC insertion and 2) correctly predict the required CVC length for positioning of the catheter tip in the lower third of the superior vena cava.

Material And Methods: This single center prospective observational study included adult patients (age ≥18 years) with an indication for CVC insertion after institutional ethics approval was obtained. Read More
