Update on anesthetic management for pneumonectomy

Anesthesia Slides
Purpose of review Pneumonectomy has the highest perioperative risk among common pulmonary resections. The purpose of this review is to update clinicians on the importance of anesthetic management for these patients. Recent findings Two complications associated with increased perioperative mortality are relevant to anesthetic management: postoperative arrhythmias and acute lung injury. The geriatric population is particularly at risk for arrhythmias. Adequate preoperative cardiac assessment and drug prophylaxis may decrease this risk. Patients with decreased respiratory function are at increased risk for acute lung injury. The use of large tidalvolume ventilation during anesthesia may increase this risk. There is a trend to better outcomes in centers with larger surgical volumes. Summary Pa...

Impact of Goal-Directed Perioperative Fluid Management in High-Risk Surgical Procedures

Anesthesia Slides
Guidelines for the perioperative administration of fluid are often based on static hemodynamic targets such as central venous pressure, and delayed volume status indexes such as blood pressure, heart rate, capillary refill, and urine output. Traditional fluid management protocols also rely heavily on algorithmic estimates of fluid deficit, intravascular fluid volume status, fluid loss, and basal fluid requirements to guide perioperative fluid administration. Such formulaic approaches lack definitive physiologic endpoints for determining fluid optimization and fail to address the roles of tissue oxygenation and end-organ perfusion in achieving positive long-term patient outcomes. Recent advances in hemodynamic monitoring have produced sophisticated dynamic measures of volume status, such as...
