Learning Manual Skills in Anesthesiology: Is There a Recommended Number of Cases for Anesthetic Procedures?
TLDR
Evaluated 11 first-year residents according to their rate of success or failure when applying manual anesthesiological skills, such as performance of spinal, epidural, or brachial plexus anesthesia and tracheal intubation or insertion of an arterial line, to investigate the learning process in anesthesia.

Learning manual skills in anesthesiology: Is there a recommended number of cases for anesthetic procedures?
TLDR
To determine the learning process in anesthesia, 11 first-year residents were evaluated according to their rate of success or failure when applying manual anesthesiological skills, such as performance. Expand
Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9-THC) Treatment in Chronic Central Neuropathic Pain and Fibromyalgia Patients: Results of a Multicenter Survey
TLDR
Delta 9-THC treatment as part of a broader pain management plan therefore may represent a promising coanalgesic therapeutic option for the treatment of chronic pain in central neuropathy and fibromyalgia. Expand
Duration of effects of aspirin on platelet function in healthy volunteers: an analysis using the PFA-100.
TLDR
Effects of single-dose aspirin 2000 mg on platelet function were detected after 3 hours and had been lasting for the following 3 days, which shows that PFA-100 may help by evaluating hemostasis during the preoperative period. Expand
A Swiss Anaesthesiology Closed Claims Analysis: report of events in the years 1987–2008
TLDR
The closed claims analysis project enabled the SSAR to identify areas of high medicolegal risks to gain an insight into the causes of infrequent but potentially harmful events leading to anaesthesia-related injuries and, based on these data, to develop preventive strategies. Expand
Determination of bupivacaine in plasma by high-performance liquid chromatography.
TLDR
Bupivacaine (Marcaine, Sensorcaine, Carbostesin) is a local anesthetic of the anilide type because of a nonpolar n-butylpipecolic group, which has a longer duration of action than lidocaine or mepavacaine. Expand
Histological findings after long-term infusion of intrathecal ketamine for chronic pain: a case report.
TLDR
The intrathecal infusion of ketamines with preservative, or the mixture of ketamine, clonidine, morphine, and bupivacaine resulted in isolated lymphocytic vasculitis of the spinal cord and leptomeninges without any clinical signs of neurological deficit. Expand
Postoperative vomiting in children. A persisting unsolved problem.
TLDR
The use of regional anaesthesia, prophylactic antiemetic medication, and the introduction of new anaesthetics, may help to reduce the sometimes high incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting in paediatric patients. Expand
[Nausea and vomiting in the postoperative phase. Expert- and evidence-based recommendations for prophylaxis and therapy].
TLDR
The group suggests algorithms where prophylactic interventions are mainly dependent on the patient's risk for PONV, which should provide evidence-based guidelines allowing the development of SOPs/policies which take local circumstances into account. Expand
Frequency Sweep Electromyogram and Voluntary Effort in Volunteers after d-Tubocurarine
TLDR
A new method for monitoring the effect of muscle relaxants on the myoneural junction was tested in unanesthetized volunteers and respiratory function showed less depression than the FS-EMG of the abdominal muscle at the time of maximal neuromuscular blockade. Expand
