Arterial cannulation with ultrasound (US) guidance increases the success rate and reduces complications. US-guided vascular access has two main approaches: long axis in-plane (LA-IP) and short axis out-of-plane (SA-OOP) approaches. The purpose of this study was to compare performance time and possible complications between two techniques. After obtaining(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared the safety and efficacy of the Supreme Laryngeal Mask Airway (S-LMA) with that of the ProSeal-LMA (P-LMA) in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty adults were randomly allocated. Following anaesthesia induction, experienced LMA users inserted the airway devices. RESULTS Oropharyngeal leak pressure was(More)
The traditional method to evaluate adequacy of the block for surgery is based on loss of sensory response to stimuli, which requires patient cooperation. Several methods have been described for objective assessment of the nerve block. The aim of the study was to investigate whether perfusion index (PI), a measure of peripheral perfusion from a pulse(More)
BACKGROUND Supraglottic airway devices such as the LMA-Supreme (LMA-S) and I-gel, which have an additional lumen for the insertion of a gastric tube, can be useful in the management of the difficult airway. OBJECTIVE To test the performance of these two devices in the difficult paediatric airway. DESIGN Randomised double-blind study. SETTING(More)
When ultrasound (US) is used in peripheric nerve blocks, successful nerve blocks can be performed even if nerve stimulation is not possible. In this case report, we present a 37-year-old male patient, ASA physical status I, undergoing debridement and grafting for incomplete arm whose upper extremity (forearm) was amputated due to electric shock; motor(More)
Preoperative care includes a clinical examination before invasive or non-invasive interventions for anaesthesia/analgesia and is the responsibility of the anaesthesiologists. Methemoglobinemia should be considered, as well as cardiac, pulmonary, and peripheral circulatory disorders in patients with central cyanosis and low oxygen saturation despite(More)
