Risk Factors and Mechanisms of Postoperative Delirium After Intracranial Neurosurgical Procedures

Asian J Anesthesiol 2020 Mar 24;2020(2020):1-9. Epub 2020 Mar 24.

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, National Research Neurosurgery Center, Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan

Postoperative delirium (POD) is a condition characterized by cerebral dysfunction or failure and associated with high morbidity and mortality, prolonged intensive care unit and hospital stay, increased costs and long-term disability. The risk factors can be divided into three categories: preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative. POD is underrecognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated condition which can also lead to potentially life-threatening conditions. Read More

Pharmacological Approach for the Prevention of Postoperative Shivering: A Systematic Review of Prospective Randomized Controlled Trials

Asian J Anesthesiol 2019 09 13;57(3):66-84. Epub 2019 Dec 13.

2nd Department of Anesthesiology, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, “Attikon” University Hospital, Athens, Greece

Shivering is a common postoperative complication that occurs after both general and regional anesthesia even in the cases when hypothermia during surgery has been averted. Patients describe it as a highly unpleasant experience, while clinicians are concerned due to its adverse effects such as increased oxygen consumption. In this article, we present a summary of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in postoperative shivering (POS), risk factors, and inadvertent effects. Read More

Anesthesiology and Critical Care Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Science, Shiraz, Iran

Objective: Although regional anesthesia is the most frequently used method for selected surgical approaches, general anesthesia (GA) is still common. Awareness and recall of events are among the main hazards during GA, particularly in Caesarean Section (C/S). In this study, we decided to compare depth of anesthesia, that was measured by Bispectral index (BIS) and isolated forearm technique (IFT) in GA, induced by propofol vs. Read More

Validation of the Radford Nomogram to Estimate the Minute Volume Required to Attain Normocapnia in Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia: A Single-Center Retrospective Study

Asian J Anesthesiol 2019 09 29;57(3):101-108. Epub 2019 Oct 29.

Department of Anesthesia, Kyoto University Hospital, Kyoto, Japan

Objective: The Radford nomogram, an old mathematical chart device to estimate the required ventilation for maintaining normocapnia, remains unvalidated in patients undergoing modern, balanced anesthesia. This study aims to investigate the performance of the Radford nomogram in patients undergoing general anesthesia and derive a simple equation to estimate the minute volume required to attain normocapnia (MVnorm).

Methods: This single-center retrospective study enrolled 78 patients (age ≥ 18 years) undergoing cerebral revascularization for Moyamoya disease. Read More

Comparing Bupivacaine, Lidocaine, and a Combination of Bupivacaine and Lidocaine for Labor Epidural Activation: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind Study

Asian J Anesthesiol 2019 06;57(2):55-60

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, USA

Objective: Epidural anesthesia for the parturient is often provided in a clinical context where rapid onset of segmental analgesia is important; however, little is published on the ideal local anesthetic to safely achieve this onset. To fi ll this gap in knowledge, we studied bupivacaine and lidocaine, two local anesthetics (LA) commonly used for labor epidural activation, either as a single drug or in combination to determine the onset of epidural analgesia.

Methods: In this double-blinded study, seventy-five patients were randomized into three groups (n = 25 each) for labor epidural activation: 10 mL of 0. Read More

Evidence-Based Recommendations on the Pharmacological Management of Osteoarthritis and Chronic Low Back Pain: An Asian Consensus

Asian J Anesthesiol 2019 06;57(2):37-54

Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

The overall burden of chronic musculoskeletal pain in Asian countries will continue to increase as the population ages, as will the demand for safe and effective pain management. Currently available Asian guidelines are mostly outdated and targeted only to primary care. Implementation of international guidelines may be unsuitable for Asian patients due to cultural, local economic and regulatory factors. Read More

How to Use Pectoral Nerve Blocks Effectively—An Evidence-Based Update

Asian J Anesthesiol 2019 06;57(2):28-36

Anaesthetic Department, Corniche Hospital, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Since the original description in 2011, the array of pectoral nerve blocks has evolved. The pectoral nerve (PECS) block in conjunction with general anesthesia can decrease an additional analgesic in perioperative period for breast cancer surgeries. Current literature on the PECS block has reported 3 several types (PECS I, PECS II, and serratus plane blocks). Read More

Abstract: Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) is a chronic pain condition, affecting many people who have undergone surgery. The development of CPSP is complex and the treatment options are limited; therefore, postsurgical pain management is crucial for satisfactory pain relief and prevention of CPSP development. In this review, we analyzed the existing treatment modalities for patients with CPSP. Read More

Enhanced Perioperative Safety and Comfort During Airway-Related Surgeries and Procedures With Dexmedetomidine-A Brief Review and Clinical Practice Experience.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2018 06;56(2):56-63

Department of Anesthesiology, Cathay General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Dexmedetomidine, an α-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, provides analgesia, sedation, anxiolysis, sympatholysis and anesthetic-sparing effect, without inducing significant respiratory depression. Due to these properties, its clinical use is no longer limited to serving as a sedative agent in the intensive care unit. Proper airway management and the avoidance of cardiac and respiratory complications are common goals of everyday anesthesia practice. Read More

The Relationship Between Postoperative Pneumonia and Endotracheal Suctioning Under General Anesthesia in Ophthalmic Surgery: A Retrospective Study.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2018 03;56(1):33-38

Department of Anesthesiology, Tri-Service General Hospital and National Defense Medical Center, Taipei, Taiwan.

Objective: Postoperative pneumonia is the third most common postoperative complication. It may result from aspiration of secretions accumulating in the subglottic space during general anesthesia (GA). However, the relationship between endotracheal suctioning (ETS) during extubation from GA emergence and postoperative pneumonia has not been well investigated. Read More

Asian J Anesthesiol 2018 03;56(1):14-22

Department of Anesthesiology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Objective: Sepsis-related systemic inflammation resulted in microcirculatory dysfunction. However, information of normal ranges of microcirculatory parameters in the healthy population remain limited. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the differences in microcirculatory parameters between healthy volunteers and patients with sepsis. Read More

Intranasal Dexmedetomidine in Termination of First Trimester Pregnancy of Suction Evacuation.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2018 03;56(1):1-13

Department of Anesthesiology, The Second Hospital of Dalian Medical University, Dalian, Liaoning, China.

Objective: Deep sedation without intubation for termination of first trimester pregnancy of suction evacuation entails use of sedatives such as propofol or a combination of propofol and sulfentanil, with unwanted complications. Dexmedetomidine is an α2-adrenorecepter agonist which provides sedation, anxiolysis and analgesia, without any of the complications associated with the popular sedatives.

Methods: A total number of 90 patients were randomized to three groups: (1) group P, treated with intranasal saline, intravenous saline and propofol; (2) group DP, treated with intranasal dexmedetomidine, intravenous saline and propofol; and (3) group SP, treated with intranasal saline, intravenous sulfentanil and propofol.
