Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is an educational journal for those associated with anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain medicine

The Latest 

 

The May 2015 edition of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care features a range of thought-provoking articles, opening with an editorial by Dr Rebecca Dresser, Professor of Ethics in Medicine at Washington University in St Louis, about how the personal perspectives of research subjects are often overlooked in research ethics discourse.

This theme is continued in two point-of-view articles, one penned by Professor Grant Gillett, the other by Professor Geoffrey Dobb, which both look at ICU-based trials—an ethically complex topic, given most patients in intensive care are unable to give informed consent to participate in such research.

43:3 includes a prospective observational study by Trumble et al recording the number and types of risks mentioned by anaesthetists when seeking consent to perform labour epidural analgesia. This is the first study of its kind and the data collected shows an interesting deviation from ANZCA guidelines for the procedure.

Also in this issue are the findings from Fisher et al’s three-month investigation into the ability of the Dalhousie Clinical Frailty Scale to predict patient outcome in subjects admitted to a Melbourne ICU. The paper produced is an in-depth examination of the connections between Frailty Scale scores and mortality, comorbidities and hospital/ICU lengths-of-stay.

The correspondence section offers a selection of lighter reads, including submissions on self-directed simulator echocardiography training, the implications for checking unsealed volatile agent containers, moves to improve cricothyroidotomy kits and outcomes for patients admitted to an Adelaide ICU with submandibular space infections.

Finally, the latest AIC includes a special article summarising the findings of the first ANZICS conference on the role of intensive care in Rapid Response Teams, as well as abstracts from the 2015 Australian Pain Society Annual Scientific Meeting, this year themed ‘Managing Pain: from Mechanism to Policy’.
