The Latest

 

In this issue of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Chief Editor Neville Gibbs says thank you and congratulations to Jeanette Thirlwell who, on 30 June 2014, stood down from her position as the Journal’s Executive Editor, after more than three decades’ service to the publication.

This month, two papers address the important topics of education and training in ultrasound-guided neuraxial anaesthesia. While Terblanche et al conducted a prospective, assessor-blinded, randomised controlled trial to develop a training program in neuraxial ultrasound, Deacon et al evaluated the learning curve of neuraxial ultrasound exams and the number of scans on non-pregnant models required to reach competency.

Conti et al reports on the effect of patient sex on the influence of early adverse events in a population of elderly patients, concluding that, like their younger counterparts, older women appear to be at a greater risk than men of experiencing early postoperative adverse events.

Tooke and Howell discuss the problem of incorrect selection of syringe type resulting in significant errors in drug delivery. They suggest that wide variation of syringe metrics and complex syringe menus may increase errors, resulting in under or over-delivery of medication.

In this issue’s equipment reports, Ng et al assesses the accuracy and reliability of the i-STAT® point-of-care device for the determination of haemoglobin concentration before and after major blood loss and Ang et al considers the use of the Codonics Safe Label System™ in improving labelling compliance of anaesthesia drugs.

The correspondence section covers a range of interesting subjects, including pharmacist prescription of venous thromboembolism, ultrasound-guided jugular bulb catheterisation, pain reduction after endometrial ablation using lignocaine gel and hypersensitivity to sugammadex.

This issue also includes the abstracts of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists 72nd National Scientific Congress, held on 26 to 29 September 2013 in Canberra.
