The modified Mallampati score is used to predict difficult tracheal intubation. We have conducted a meta-analysis of published studies to evaluate the Mallampati score as a prognostic test. A total of 55 studies involving 177 088 patients were included after comprehensive electronic and manual searches. The pooled estimates from the meta-analyses were(More)
Wide variability exists in the number of anesthetic procedures to which anesthesia residents are exposed during their training. The number of attempts at various procedures before a trainee becomes proficient at performing each anesthetic procedure is not known. To determine the learning process of 150 attempts of spinal anesthesia and 100 attempts of(More)
BACKGROUND National statistical data of mortality and morbidity related to anesthesia have not been reported. The need to comprehensively examine the cause of death as well as other adverse events prompted the first national study in Thailand. MATERIAL AND METHOD In the Thai Anesthesia Incidents Study (THAI Study), a prospectively defined cohort of(More)
BACKGROUND Based on a pilot study with 34 patients, applying the modified sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) score intraoperatively could predict a prolonged ICU stay, albeit with only 4 risk factors. Our objective was to develop a practicable intraoperative model for predicting prolonged ICU stay which included more relevant risk factors. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To determine the initial success rate and its associated factors on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in patients with cardiac arrest within 24 hours after receiving anesthesia for an emergency surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS After the hospital ethical committee gave approval for this study, the anesthesia providers recorded all relevant data(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of dexmedetomidine on hemodynamic responses to DLT intubation compared to placebo and to assess the adverse effects related to dexmedetomidine. Sixty patients were randomly allocated to receive 0.7  μ g/kg dexmedetomidine (n = 30) or normal saline (n = 30) 10 minutes before general anesthesia. Systolic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to explore the influence of positive fluid balance on cardiovascular complications after thoracotomy for noncancer lesions. METHODS After approval from an institutional review board, a retrospective cohort study was conducted. All consecutive patients undergoing thoracotomy between January 1, 2005 and December 31,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of and factors associated with perioperative cardiac arrest within 24 hours of receiving anesthesia for emergency surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective cohort study was approved by the ethical committee of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, Thailand. We reviewed the data of 44,339 patients receiving(More)
PURPOSE To determine prognostic factors for death and survival with or without complications in cardiac arrest patients who received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) within 24 hours of receiving anesthesia for emergency surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective cohort study approved by the Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai University Hospital Ethical(More)
