Abstract Vasoplegia syndrome (VS) in the cardiac surgical intensive care unit and postoperative period has been an area of interest to clinicians due to its prevalence and effects on morbidity and mortality. However, there is a paucity of evidence regarding the treatment of vasoplegia syndrome during cardiopulmonary bypass (On-CPB VS). This review aims to detail the incidence, outcomes, and possible treatment options for those patients who develop vasoplegia during bypass. The pharmacologic resc...

Importance Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has reached a pandemic level. Coronaviruses are known to affect the cardiovascular system. We review the basics of coronaviruses, with a focus on COVID-19, along with their effects on the cardiovascular system. Observations Coronavirus disease 2019 can cause a viral pneumonia with additional extrapulmonary manifestations and complications. A large proportion of patients have ...

Importance Virus infection has been widely described as one of the most common causes of myocarditis. However, less is known about the cardiac involvement as a complication of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Objective To describe the presentation of acute myocardial inflammation in a patient with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) who recovered from the influenzalike syndrome and developed fatigue and signs and symptoms of heart failure a week after upper...

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to 80,409 diagnosed cases and 3,012 deaths in mainland China based on the data released on March 4, 2020. Approximately 3.2% of patients with COVID-19 required intubation and invasive ventilation at some point in the disease course. Providing best practices regarding intubation and ventilation for an overwhelming number of patients with COVID-19 amid an enhanced risk of cross-infection is a daunting undertaking. The authors presented the experience of caring for the...

The outbreak of the new Coronavirus disease, COVID-19, has been involved in 77,262 cases in China as well as in 27 other countries as of February 24, 2020. Because the virus is novel to human beings, and there is no vaccine yet available, every individual is susceptible and can become infected. Healthcare workers are at high risk, and unfortunately, more than 3,000 healthcare workers in China have been infected. Anesthesiologists are among healthcare workers who are at an even higher risk of bec...

Abstract Separation from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) after cardiac surgery is a progressive transition from full mechanical circulatory and respiratory support to spontaneous mechanical activity of lungs and heart. During the separation phase, measurements of cardiac performance with transesophageal echocardiography provide the rationale behind the diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making process. In many cases it is possible to predict a complex separation from CPB, for instance, when there ...

Healthcare systems worldwide are responding to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), an emerging infectious syndrome caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus. Patients with COVID-19 can progress from asymptomatic or mild illness to hypoxemic respiratory failure or multisystem organ failure, necessitating intubation and intensive care management. Healthcare providers, and particularly anesthesiologists, are at the frontline of this epidemic, and they need to...

Abstract Objective This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to describe the features of right ventricular impairment and pulmonary hypertension in COVID-19 and assess its effect on mortality. Design We carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies. Setting We performed a search through Pubmed, the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, and the Cochrane Library for studies reporting right ventricular dysfunction in COVID-19 patients and outcomes. Parti...

Abstract In 2019, a novel coronavirus called the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 led to the outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019, which was deemed a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020. Due to the accelerated rate of mortality and utilization of hospital resources, health care systems had to adapt to these major changes. This affected patient care across all disciplines and specifically within the perioperative services. In this review, we discuss the stra...

Abstract The European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesiology (EACTA) and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesia (SCA) aimed to create joint recommendations for the perioperative management of patients with suspected or proven SARS-CoV-2 infection undergoing cardiac surgery or invasive cardiac procedures. To produce appropriate recommendations, we combined the evidence from the literature review, re-evaluating the clinical experience of routine cardiac surgery in similar cases during the...

INTRODUCTION COVID-19 can cause severe acute respiratory failure requiring management in intensive care unit with invasive ventilation and a 40% mortality rate. Cardiovascular manifestations are common and studies have shown an increase in right ventricular (RV) dysfunction associated with mortality. These studies, however, comprise heterogeneous patient groups with few requiring invasive ventilation. This study will investigate the prevalence and prognostic significance of RV dysfunction in ven...
