The study of general anaesthesia and electroencephalographic oscillations in the frontal cortex spans at least four decades, with several notable findings:
  • In 1977, Tinker and colleagues1...

AbstractBackground. The incidence and impact of postoperative complications are poorly described. Failure-to-rescue, the rate of death following complications, is an important quality measure for perioperative care but has not been...

The 21st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Difficult Airway Society (DAS) took place in Torquay (Devon, UK) on November 16–18, 2016. The workshop day included traditional workshops, a tracheostomy workshop, and a ‘can’t intubate, can’t oxygenate’ (...
BJA
AbstractObjective: To investigate the prognostic significance of central venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide difference (cv-art CO2 gap) during septic shock in patients with and without impaired cardiac function.Methods:...

Editor—Reproducing scientific observations is the foundation of trusted discoveries. In clinical sciences, specific questions are repeatedly asked by a multitude of observational studies or trials, and the rigorous meta-analysis of these multicentre...
BJA
An active area of enquiry in the neuroscientific investigation of general anaesthesia is the question of whether anaesthetic-induced unconsciousness is mediated by bottom-up or top-down mechanisms in the brain. Candidates for the bottom-up approach...
BJA
AbstractBackground: Postgraduate specialty training has traditionally been based on a time- and rotation-based model, but competency-based models are emerging. Because anaesthesia training evolves differently across Europe,...
