Electrophysiology of Muscle Fatigue in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on Manikin Model.

Anesth Prog 2018 ;65(1):30-37

"Anesthesiology and Resuscitation" Titular Professor, Pharmacology Department, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation requires the provider to adopt positions that could be dangerous for his or her spine, specifically affecting the muscles and ligaments in the lumbar zone and the scapular spinal muscles. Increased fatigue caused by muscular activity during the resuscitation could produce a loss of quality and efficacy, resulting in compromising resuscitation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the maximum time a rescuer can perform uninterrupted chest compressions correctly without muscle fatigue. Read More

Influence of Fasting Duration on Body Fluid and Hemodynamics.

Anesth Prog 2017 ;64(4):226-229

Department of Dental Anesthesiology, Faculty of Dental Science, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Fasting before general anesthesia aims to reduce the volume and acidity of stomach contents, which reduces the risk of regurgitation and aspiration. Prolonged fasting for many hours prior to surgery could lead to unstable hemodynamics, however. Therefore, preoperative oral intake of clear fluids 2 hours prior to surgery is recommended to decrease dehydration without an increase in aspiration risk. Read More
