The Performance of Supraglottic Airway Devices at Different Head and Neck Rotation Angles.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2018 09;56(3):115-120

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

Objective: Supraglottic airway devices (SGAs) have advantages in reducing respiration-associated complications. However, limited studies on the influence of head and neck rotation on the risk of air leakage have been conducted. We hypothesize that different head and neck rotation angles will increase the risk of air leakage when using SGAs. 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

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.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2017 Jun 9;55(2):30-34. Epub 2017 Jun 9.

Department of Anaesthesiology, Taipei Veterans General Hospital and National Yang-Ming University, Beitou District, Taipei City, 11217, Taiwan, ROC. Electronic address:

Epidural catheters are used to provide effective intraoperative and postoperative analgesia. Standard epidural catheterization techniques rely on palpation of surface anatomy and the experience of the anesthesiologist. Failure to correctly place an epidural catheter can lead to inadequate analgesia and serious complications, such as dural puncture headache. Read More

Catheterization in an ultrasound-guided thoracic paravertebral block using thoracoscopy.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar 2;55(1):24-25. Epub 2017 Jun 2.

Department of Anesthesiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan.

Thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) is an efficient alternative to epidural anesthesia. The location of a catheter within the thoracic paravertebral space (TPVS) has been examined in the human cadaver studies, but it is unclear how it goes into the TPVS during catheterization. In this report, thoracoscopy was used to observe the thoracic cavity in real-time during a parasagittal in-plane approach of ultrasound-guided TPVB. Read More

A comparison of the video laryngoscopes with Macintosh laryngoscope for nasotracheal intubation.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar 8;55(1):17-21. Epub 2017 Jun 8.

Department of Anesthesiology, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Department of Anesthesiology, Faculty of Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Nasotracheal intubation (NTI) is usually required in patients undergoing maxillofacial surgery. Though video-scopes have been demonstrated to perform well in oral endotracheal intubation, limited information is available concerning NTI. The aim of the study is to compare the efficiency of video-scopes and the traditional direct laryngoscopy in NTI. Read More

Effect of blood pressure elevation on cerebral oxygen desaturation in the beach chair position.

Asian J Anesthesiol 2017 Mar 7;55(1):13-16. Epub 2017 Jun 7.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Gifu University Graduate School of Medicine, Gifu 501-1194, Japan.

Objective: The beach chair position (BCP) during shoulder arthroscopy is a known risk factor for cerebral ischemia. We retrospectively investigated whether maintaining the arterial blood pressure (ABP) prevented the decrease in the regional cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rSO).

Methods: We analyzed 20 consecutive patients who underwent elective shoulder surgery in the BCP under general anesthesia. Read More
