Elsevier announces availability of first edition of Non-Operating Room Anesthesia
- 04 Aug 2014

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the availability of the first edition of Non-Operating Room Anesthesia (NORA), which focuses on the growing national trend to perform more procedures outside of the traditional hospital operating room. This trend has led many anesthesiology departments to reconfigure protocols, and NORA co-authors Dr. Mark S. Weiss and Dr. Lee A. Fleisher address the challenges and new opportunities the industry will face.

The practice of anesthesiology is changing rapidly. The need for anesthesiologists outside of the operating room will continue to increase as the number of minimally invasive procedures increases in radiology suites, catheterisation laboratories, gastrointestinal endoscopy and bronchoscopy suites. Currently, anesthesiologists spend 10-15 percent of their time on procedures in remote locations; this number is projected to reach as high as 60 percent over the next three years.

The topics discussed in this new textbook include comprehensive coverage that is of growing importance to anesthesiologists. Each section includes a brief overview describing the non-operating room venue and a summary of the approach to the procedure. Additionally, sections include key points, a description of common drugs used in the procedure and a checklist for required equipment.

Purchasers of the printed book also receive access to the eBook through Expert Consult including printable guidelines, protocols and checklists.

Anesthesiology launches ‘Education’ section to promote new discoveries and influence clinical practice
- 24 Dec 2009

The January issue of Anesthesiology, the journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc, marks the debut of a newly designated ‘Education’ section. The new section is designed to highlight clinical material, making it more accessible and relevant for implementation in everyday clinical practice. The issue also features a new study that looks at the effects of beta blockers on surgical outcomes, revealing that the cardioprotective effects of the medication could be compromised by acute surgical anemia.

Beta blockers are used to treat a variety of conditions, including high blood pressure, heart attack, glaucoma and migraines. To determine if there is a significant interaction between the hemoglobin level and beta blocker effect, Dr. Beattie and colleagues performed a retrospective review of 4,378 noncardiac surgery patients at Toronto General Hospital from March 2005 to June 2006. The review revealed that major cardiac complications and death rates were increased for patients treated with beta blockers who experienced more than a 35 percent drop in blood count (or hemoglobin). Researchers discovered that treatment with beta blockers was not harmful to patients if blood loss remained in a range of 30 to 35 percent.

Anesthesiology is the official journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists but operates with complete editorial autonomy. With an independent and internationally recognised Editorial Board, the journal leads the specialty in promotion of original research by providing immediate open access to highlighted articles and free access to all published articles 6 months after publication.
