Currently, the role of ultrasound (US) in anaesthesia-related airway assessment and procedural interventions is encouraging, though it is still ill defined. US can visualise anatomical structures in the supraglottic, glottic and subglottic regions. The floor of the mouth can be visualised by both transcutaneous view of the neck and also by transoral or(More)
BACKGROUND i-gel™ and the ProSeal™ laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) are two supraglottic airway devices with gastric channel used for airway maintenance in anesthesia. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of i-gel compared with PLMA for airway maintenance in pediatric patients under general anesthesia with controlled ventilation. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway (ILMA) is a relatively new device designed to have better intubating characteristics than the standard Laryngeal Mask Airway. This study was designed to compare Intubating Laryngeal Mask with standard Direct Laryngoscopy (DLS), taking into account ease of intubation, time taken for intubation, success rate of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of palladium 103(103Pd) ophthalmic plaque brachytherapy on patients with uveal melanoma. BACKGROUND Radioactive 103Pd seeds have become available for plaque brachytherapy, and computer-aided simulations have compared the intraocular dose distribution of 103Pd versus iodine 125 (125I) plaques in patients with uveal melanoma.(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with head and neck cancer treated surgically have a high local recurrence rate, unless the surgeon is able to obtain adequate margins of resection. In patients with positive margins, tumor control is suboptimal despite postoperative radiotherapy. METHODS We treated 25 consecutive patients, who were at high risk for local recurrence by(More)
Background. This study was designed to assess and compare the effect of head and neck position on the oropharyngeal leak pressures and cuff position (employing fibreoptic view of the glottis) and ventilation scores between ProSeal LMA and the I-gel. Material and Methods. After induction of anesthesia, the supraglottic device was inserted and ventilation(More)
Bionanocomposite coatings with antimicrobial activity comprising polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-capped silver nanoparticles embedded in chitosan (CS) matrix were developed by a green soft chemistry synthesis route. Colloidal sols of PVA-capped silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized by microwave irradiating an aqueous solution comprising silver nitrate and(More)
Background and Objectives. Critically ill obstetric patients are a particularly unique cohort for the intensivist. The objective of this study was to review the indications for admission, demographics, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of obstetric patients admitted to intensive care unit of a medical college hospital in southern India and to identify(More)
To the Editor: Accidental intravascular injection of local anesthetic can cause central nervous system (CNS) toxicity, presenting as tremors, convulsions, dysrhythmias, and cardiorespiratory arrest. During epidural anesthesia, a test dose is used to diagnose inadvertent intravascular or intrathecal administration of drugs. We present a case where the test(More)
