From the Editor
The September 2015 issues of Anesthesia & Analgesia Case Reports (AACR) present a potpourri of anesthesia patient care challenges. Examples include:
In the September 1st issue, Berens and Scott describe their novel method, ie, use of a modified StatlockTM IV stabilization device, to secure an endotracheal tube in a patient with diffuse dermal pathology precluding application of adhesive tape. Two cardiovascular case reports are enlightening. Stein and colleagues discuss surgical management of a patient’s atrial fibrillation for which one lung ventilation was needed yet this resulted in refractory hypoxia requiring extracorporeal cardiorespiratory support. Pimentel and colleagues outline the difficulties with anesthetic management of a laboring parturient with previously undiagnosed ventricular tachycardia.
