The role of clinical pharmacology in enhanced recovery after surgery protocols: a comprehensive review.

Anaesthesiol Intensive Ther 2020 05 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Valley Anaesthesiology and Pain Consultants - Envision Physician Services, Phoenix, AZ, United States.

Clinical pharmacology has had an enormous impact in the development of anaesthesia practice. Improvement in drugs and the use of long-acting local anaesthetics in peri-pheral nerve blocks have reduced hospital stays and opioid consumption in both the hospital and ambulatory surgery settings. Ambulatory surgery centres are revolutionary because they provide an alternative to hospital-based outpatient services and generally provide favourable patient outcomes. Read More

The opioid crisis in North America: facts and future lessons for Europe.

Anaesthesiol Intensive Ther 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

University Health Network - Toronto General Hospital, Canada.

Over the past two decades, opioid-related hospitalizations and deaths in North America have reached the level of a public health emergency. Initially, the epidemic of opioid misuse was largely driven by pharmaceutical companies and initiated by their spread of misinformation, which led physicians to engage in overzealous prescribing behaviour. This was followed by significant harms as deaths related to overdoses on prescription and illicit opioids rose steadily throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. Read More

Department of Hospital Pharmaceutics, Showa University School of Pharmacy, 1-5-8 Hatanodai, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo 142-8555, Japan.

Purpose: Pre-anaesthesia hypertension (PAH) occurs when the blood pressure (BP) in patients before operation, in the operating room, before anaesthesia induction, temporally elevates regardless of normal ambulatory recorded BP or self-measured BP at home. PAH might be caused by anxiety and mental stress about the anaesthesia and surgery. We know that most of the patients with sustained hypertension (SH) are elders, males, obese subjects, and dyslipidaemic subjects. Read More

Anaesthesiol Intensive Ther 2019 ;51(4):289-298

Intensive Care Unit, Hospital Morales Meseguer, Murcia, Spain.

Unlike general anaesthesia, neuraxial anaesthesia (NA) reduces the burden and risk of respiratory adverse events in the post-operative period. However, both patients affected by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chest wall disorders and/or neuromuscular diseases may experience the development or the worsening of respiratory failure, even during surgery performed under NA; this latter negatively affects the function of accessory respiratory muscles, resulting in a blunted central response to hypercapnia and possibly in an exacerbation of cardiac dysfunction (NA-induced relative hypovolemia). According to European Respiratory Society (ERS) and American Thoracic Society (ATS) guidelines, non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is effective in the post-operative period for the treatment of both impaired pulmonary gas exchange and ventilation, while the intra-operative use of NIV in association with NA is just anecdotally reported in the literature.
