  • Pre-operative anxiety amongst patients in a tertiary care hospital in
           India- a prevalence study

    • Authors: Prasanna Vadhanan, Debendra Kumar Tripaty, Kiruthika Balakrishnan
      Pages: 5 - 10
      Abstract: Background: The prospect of undergoing surgery under anaesthesia can induce significant anxiety in patients. Excess anxiety can lead to several deleterious effects like perioperative cardiac events, increased anaesthetic requirements, higher postoperative pain scores and prolonged hospital stay. Various factors can influence the anxiety levels during surgery. The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of anxiety in adult patients scheduled for surgery in a suburban teaching institute in India where the majority of patients belong to lower socioeconomic strata.Methods: One hundred consecutive patients scheduled for various elective surgeries were asked 6 questions according to the Amsterdam preoperative anxiety and information scale to assess their anxiety levels just before shifting into the Operating room. Probable contributing factors noted were age, sex, socioeconomic status, type of surgery, duration of hospital stay, and history of previous surgery. Any specific factors causing anxiety like failure or complications of surgery, recovery from anaesthesia, needle pricks were also asked with leading questions.Results: The overall prevalence of anxiety was 31%. The prevalence in male patients and female patients were 21.2% and 39.5% respectively. There was a moderate correlation between the anxiety scores and need to know scores. The effects of sex, previous surgery, the length of hospital stay were not significant upon the anxiety scores.Conclusion: The overall prevalence of anxiety in the southern part of India was lower when compared to many of the reported studies; however, the prevalence was higher among the female patients.

  • Efficacy of tramadol as an adjuvant to bupivacaine for caudal analgesia in
           children: a randomised controlled trial

    • Authors: Upendra Krishna Regmi, Shanta Sapkota
      Pages: 11 - 15
      Abstract: Background: The goal of postoperative analgesia is to minimise pain with least possible side effects and in our setting be as cost effective as possible. In children, caudal anaesthesia is typically combined with general anaesthesia for intraoperative and postoperative analgesia. Adjuvants can be added to local anaesthetics for prolonging the duration of analgesia. This study was done to find out the duration of analgesia of caudal Bupivacaine in combination with Tramadol.Methods: This prospective, randomised, double-blind, comparative study was done by taking a total of 60 patients, aged between 2 to 7 years undergoing elective lower abdominal, urological and lower extremity surgeries. The patients were randomized to group A (n=30) receiving 1 ml/kg of 0.25% bupivacaine and group B (n=30) receiving 1 ml/kg of 0.25% bupivacaine plus 1mg/kg of tramadol caudally. Duration of analgesia, hemodynamic responses and adverse effects were noted and analysed.Results: Thirty patients in both groups were comparable with regard to demographic data and hemodynamic response and were statistically non-significant (P>0.05). It was observed that the mean duration of analgesia was significantly longer in group B (467.5±164.5 min versus 240.5±69.4 min, P<0.001). One patient in each group had postoperative vomiting.Conclusion: Tramadol 1mg/kg as an adjuvant to bupivacaine 0.25% for caudal analgesia in children is effective in increasing the duration of analgesia without an increase of adverse effects.

  • Comparison of ultrasound-guided abdominal nerve blocks and subarachnoid

    • Authors: Prajjwal Raj Bhattarai, Anuj Jung Rayamajhi, Rupesh Kumar Yadav, Subash Chandra Paudel, Anang Pangeni, Bikram Byanjankar, Rabin Pandit
      Pages: 16 - 22
      Abstract: Background: Ultrasound guided abdominal nerve blocks are increasingly being used for anaesthesia and analgesia for surgeries like appendectomy, hernia repair in our centre. The aim of the study was to compare abdominal nerve blocks and subarachnoid block for appendectomy.Method: Retrospective data of patients that underwent appendectomy either under subarachnoid block (Group-S) or abdominal nerve blocks (Group-A) for three months were collected from hospital records. The groups were compared for conversion to general anaesthesia as a primary end point of study and also for the time taken for the procedure, the first requirement of opioids, total opioid consumption and length of hospital stay.Result: Out of 116 patients studied, 75 surgeries were performed under subarachnoid block and 41 under abdominal plane blocks. Two patients in Group-S and 1 patient in Group-A were converted to general anaesthesia due to inadequate blockade. The time taken to perform the block was around four minutes in Group-S and 12 minutes in Group-A. The mean pethidine consumption in 24 hours was 62.33+16.63 mg and 23.17+15.19 mg in Group-S and Group-A respectively. The time to the first dose of pethidine in Group-S groups was 224.66+43.56 minutes and 813.17+361.80 minutes in Group-A. The mean duration of hospital stay in Group-S was 5.14+0.72 days and Group-A was 2.24+0.58 days.Conclusion: Appendectomy can be safely performed under subarachnoid block as well as the abdominal nerve blocks. The abdominal nerve block technique is found to be advantageous in terms of better postoperative analgesia, less opioid consumption and early hospital discharge.

  • The art and craft of scientific writing and critical appraisal of a
           research paper

    • Authors: Bikal Ghimire
      Pages: 23 - 28
      Abstract: Writing is an art and like any art form, it needs perseverance, dedication and practice. However, to write a good quality paper, the habit of reading scientific articles and analyzing them is very important. With the advent of internet and online publishing, we have access to colossal research articles on myriads of subjects making extraordinary conclusions.  Evidence based practice requires us to rely on literature for our clinical practice, and we have abundant publications on all aspects claiming to justify all sides of the argument. In this context it becomes more important for all in clinical practice to be able to dissect an article and analyze it in details.

  • Successful tracheal intubation with video laryngoscope when awake
           fiberoptic bronchoscopy failed in a patient with hypopharyngeal mass

    • Authors: Somnath Goyal, Anita Kulkarni
      Pages: 35 - 37
      Abstract: Video laryngoscope is one of best alternative in managing difficult airways. Our patient presented with left side neck pain and hoarseness of voice for three months, dysphagia to solids for two months. Computed tomography revealed large hypopharyngeal mass and a diagnosis of carcinoma of hypopharynx was made. As endoscopic Ryle’s tube insertion by gastroenterologist was unsuccessful so he was posted for Feeding jejunostomy under general anaesthesia. We anticipated difficult endotracheal intubation. Our first attempt to secure airway with awake fiberoptic bronchoscopic intubation was unsuccessful. Using an alternative method with bougie and video laryngoscopy, the trachea was successfully intubated. In rare clinical scenario fiberoptic bronchoscopic intubation may fail, hence we need to be prepared with the backup plan for airway management. A video laryngoscope might be useful in such situations.

  • A case of acute discitis following spinal anaesthesia: a rarity or a tip
           of the iceberg'

    • Authors: Siddhartha Koirala, Suraj Lamichhane, Navin Karn
      Pages: 38 - 41
      Abstract: Acute discitis, an inflammatory process of the intervertebral disc, has been reported as a rare complication of bacterial infection or chemical or mechanical irritation most commonly following spinal surgery. It may extend into the adjacent tissue and lead to grave orthopaedic and neurological consequences. Although it has been reported as an infective complication following spinal anesthesia also, its true incidence in our part of the world is not known. It may be higher than generally thought as the technique is overwhelmingly used. Further, we do not know about its awareness among anesthesia practitioners. Here we report a case of acute discitis in a young lady who presented with severe acute low back pain two weeks after spinal anesthesia for caesarean section; magnetic resonance imaging of lumbosacral spine revealed infective spondilodiscitis and she was treated with antibiotics and analgesics. The true incidence of acute infective discitis following spinal anaesthesia in our part of the world is unknown and it may be higher that thought. It can be prevented by using rigorous aseptic techniques, and anesthesia should be administered by appropriately qualified and trained personnel.

  • An audit of hepatobiliary diseases in a tertiary level intensive care unit
           in Nepal

    • Authors: Pramesh Sunder Shrestha, Subhash Prasad Acharya, Gentle Sunder Shrestha, Diptesh Aryal, Rejin Kumar Udaya, Moda Nath Marhatta
      Pages: 42 - 45
      Abstract: Background: Hepatobiliary diseases account for significant proportion of admission in our intensive care unit, a semi-closed, 11 bedded mixed medical-surgical unit. This study was conducted to study the profile of patients with various hepatobiliary diseases who required intensive care unit admissions with the aim of identifying the need for a hepatobiliary critical care facility. Methods: A retrospective study was designed and all consecutive patients admitted with hepatobiliary problems from January 2013 till December 2013 were enrolled in the study.Results: Out of 467 patients admitted, there were 61 (13.06%) patients with hepatobiliary diseases. Out of 61 patients, there were 24 (39.3%) patients with medical cause for hepatobiliary disease and 37 (60.7%) patients with a surgical cause. The majority of the patients 52.45% were male. The overall mortality in these patients was 37.70%. The mortality in patients with surgical cause for the hepatobiliary disease was less (27.02%). Encephalopathy was a common condition leading to ICU admission. The common medical conditions were Cirrhosis secondary to Alcoholic Liver disease and Acute Fulminant Hepatic Failure. The commonest surgical conditions were Severe Pancreatitis, Post-Whipple's surgery, postoperative sepsis after Cholecystectomy, Liver Injury secondary to Road Traffic Accidents and Severe Cholangitis. Conclusion: The number of patients presenting to our multidisciplinary unit with hepatobiliary diseases is high and this group of patients have a high mortality. Though the numbers do not suggest an immediate need for a Hepatobiliary intensive care unit, the increasing trend suggests such a facility would be the need of time in near future.
