Does training on an anaesthesia simulator lead to improvement in performance?
It is concluded that training on an anaesthesia simulator does improve the performance of anaesthetists in dealing with emergencies during anaesthesia. Expand
The effect of age on serum concentrations of albumin and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein.
Data show that in healthy subjects the HSA concentration decreases with increasing age, whereas age, uncomplicated by disease does not influence AAG concentration. Expand
Accidents, near accidents and complications during anaesthesia A retrospective analysis of a 10‐year period in a teaching hospital
A retrospective analysis of all reports of faults, accidents, near accidents and complications associated with anaesthesia in one hospital from 1978 to 1987 finds that failure to check, lack of vigilance and inattention or carelessness were the most frequently associated factors with the rest of the reports.

Reported significant observations during anaesthesia: a prospective analysis over an 18-month period.
Of the 549 significant observations reported voluntarily during a period of 18 months, 82% involved occurrences which were considered preventable and 27% could have been fatal if they had not been recognized and corrected. Expand
A new soluble acetylsalicylic acid derivative in the treatment of postoperative pain.
In 51 gynaecological patients the effect of an injectable salicylate on postoperative pain was compared with that of morphine hydrochloride 10 mg, no significant difference was found in the speed of action and degree of alleviation of pain. Expand
Epidural anesthesia with bupivacaine: effects of age on neural blockade and pharmacokinetics.
Effects of aging after epidural administration of 0.5% bupivacaine without epinephrine were studied in patients between 20 and 55 yr old and older than 55 yr, respectively and had no effect on the peak plasma concentrations and time to peak concentrations. Expand
Chloroprocaine neurotoxicity: four additional cases.
Four cases of prolonged neural blockade following epidural block or unintentional subarachnoid injection of the local anesthetic drug(s) while attempting this block have been reported and speculation as to the etiology and the role of chloroprocaine has ensued. Expand
The Leiden anaesthesia simulator.
An anaesthesia simulator capable of simulating all possible situations during anaesthesia, currently being used for teaching and training of anaesthetists, trainees and anaesthesia personnel and for research. Expand
Spinal anaesthesia with hyperbaric bupivacaine. Effects of age on neural blockade and pharmacokinetics.
Effects of ageing were studied on the neural blockade and the pharmacokinetics after subarachnoid administration of 0.5% bupivacaine 3 ml in 8% glucose in two groups of 15 male patients, between 20Expand
