The Latest

The September 2016 edition of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care includes an interesting cover note on the development of mechanical resuscitation devices such as the Pulmotor and Lungmotor and an editorial which farewells Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Editor, Professor Michael Paech.

September also features editorials on Cytomegalovirus reactivation in the critically ill septic intensive care patient and Anaesthetic implications of mild cognitive impairment.

Speckle tracking echocardiography is the latest semi-automatic tool that has potential to quantitatively describe cardiac dysfunction that may be unrecognised by conventional echocardiography. Orde et al question if Speckle tracking echocardiography is the answer to non-invasive cardiac assessment.

At the end of cardiopulmonary bypass, there are invariably several hundred millilitres of residual pump blood in the reservoir, which can either be re-transfused or discarded. Schotola et al investigate the quality of residual pump blood, focusing on plasma free haemoglobin (pfHb) and blood cell counts.

Chen et al conducted a study to assess the effect of flexible laryngeal mask airway (FLMA) size on oropharyngeal leak pressure (OLP) in children at the recommended intracuff pressure, while Harvie et al performed an observational cross-sectional study assessing the relationship between the minimal leak test and cuff manometry.

To determine utility of procalcitonin (PCT) for the prediction of bacterial infection in critically ill children, Matha et al analysed the relationship between serum PCT, cultures and other laboratory markers of bacterial sepsis or viral infection in a tertiary paediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Eley et al undertook a study to explore the experiences of anaesthetists regarding early epidural analgesia in obese parturients and question if anaesthetists are consistent in how they apply early epidural analgesia.

As usual our Correspondence section offers a variety of shorter reads to pique your interest.
