BACKGROUND This survey assessed satisfaction with the practice environment among physicians who have completed fellowship training in critical care medicine (CCM) as recognized by the American Board of Anesthesiology (and are members of the American Society of Anesthesiology) and evaluated the perceived effectiveness of training programs in preparing fellows for critical care practice. METHODS A cross-sectional online survey composed of 39 multiple choice and open-ended questions was administere...

Purpose of review Perioperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is most often employed during cardiac surgery. This review will summarize some of the recent findings relevant to TEE utilization during thoracic surgical procedures. Recent findings Hemodynamic monitoring is a key component of goal-directed fluid therapy, which is also becoming more common for management of thoracic surgical procedures. Although usually not required for the anesthetic management of common thoracic surgeries,...

Abstract Background Postoperative analgesia is paramount to recovery following thoracic surgery, and opioids play an invaluable role in this process. Yet, current one-size-fits-all prescribing practices produce large quantities of unused opioids, increasing the risk of nonmedical use and overdose. Here, we hypothesized that patient and perioperative characteristics, including 24-hour before discharge opioid intake, could inform more appropriate post-discharge prescriptions after thoracic surgery...

Background Patients diagnosed with COVID-19 frequently require mechanical ventilation. Knowledge of laboratory tests associated with the prolonged need for mechanical ventilation may guide resource allocation. We hypothesized that an elevated plasma procalcitonin level (>0.1 ng/ml) would be associated with the duration of invasive mechanical ventilation. Methods Patients diagnosed with COVID-19, who were admitted to any of our health system's hospitals between March 9th-April 20th, 2020 and requ...
