Anaesthesia and Intensive Care is an educational journal for those associated with anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain medicine

The Latest


The November issue has a covernote by Featherstone and Ball on The early history of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. There’s an Editorial by Chief Editor John Loadsman on a data sharing policy. In the Editorial The Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Jeanette Thirlwell Best Paper Award turns 21, and our first Junior Investigator Award Cooper et al reflect on the history of the award.

In their Case Report Sadleir et al describe a case of severe left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) with severe mitral incompetence due to systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral leaflet (SAM). There’s also a link to a video on the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care website.

In Retrieval of critically ill adults using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: the nine-year experience in New South Wales Austin et al performed a retrospective observational study on patients who were transported by the NSW ECMO Retrieval Service.

Konishi et al compared the incidence of POCD in patients administered either sevoflurane or propofol for maintenance of anaesthesia during total hip replacement surgery.

In Preoperative gastric residual volumes in fasted patients measured by bedside ultrasound: a prospective observational study Ohashi et al measured gastric volumes in fasted patients using bedside gastric ultrasound. Univariate and multivariable analyses were performed to examine any potential relationships between ‘at risk’ GRVs (>100 ml) and patient factors

In their Audit, Matzelle et al audited the diagnostic accuracy of ROTEM® (TEM Innovations, GmbH, Munich, Germany) measurements of hypofibrinogenaemia (fibrinogen <1.5 g/l) and thrombocytopenia (platelet count <100 x 109/l) in 200 adult non-transplant patients during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

As usual there is a variety of interesting Correspondence and Book Reviews in this issue.
