Cerebral Oximetry Monitoring with Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) for ECMO Patients
With the rapidly growing ageing population, patients admitted for cardiac surgery are typically older with more co-morbidities and higher peri-operative and post-operative complication risks. In recent years, there has been a wider use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in critical care situations. In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Khanna will be discussing the challenges clinicians face to ensure that there is cerebral oxygen supply-demand balance in ECMO patients to reduce complications. Clinical applications as well as best practices of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) monitoring will also be discussed.Image
Advances in Low Flow Anesthesia: The Path to Automation
A panel of leading anesthesiologists and technical experts convene to discuss the known benefits of low flow anesthesia, including the potential for reducing anesthetic waste, leading to cost savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. They will also highlight findings from the "MASTER Trial", a US, multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled trial of target control low flow anesthesia software, to spark discussion on the accuracy and efficiency of the technology, as well as reported clinician experience.

Monitoring the Unmonitored
Adverse events in general wards are not uncommon, and many are preventable. Mortality after surgery is 1000x higher than intraoperative mortality ¹. In the ward, vital signs are often abnormal, or trending toward abnormal, hours before cardiac arrest or IC transfer, but clinicians may only suddenly notice because of spot-checks are usually done on a 4-6 hours interval ². Abnormal RR has been shown to be an important predictor of serious events such as cardiac arrest an admission to an ICU ³ .
