From the Editor
Case Reports in the July issues teach us a variety of interesting clinical care topics.
The July 1 issue presents cases considering carotid surgery, hemostatic management during cardiac surgery, unusual obstetric morbidity and glucose management. The July 15 issue presents cases considering a neonate with airway obstruction, thoracic epidural use in the face of antiplatelet therapy, aortic dissection, endotracheal intubation of a patient with cervical spine fracture and care of a patient with coronary artery disease. All of these cases provide valuable lessons; read and learn from them.
I encourage you to read the July 15 Editorial in which Drs Nussmeier and Shafer join me in introducing the expanded concept of A&A Case Reports (AACR). “Cases” in its broadest sense includes all types of experiences in which anesthesiologists find themselves. To provide a full opportunity to share experiences with colleagues, AACR will publish cases in 5 categories; clinical care, education, perioperative services, global health and patient safety. Read more about this enhancement to the AACR concept and of course, send us your cases in any and all of these topical areas.
