1/ Let’s review pediatric sedation with Dr. Amy Alayari (PGY3)!

Classify the following level of sedation: someone is in a controlled state of depressed consciousness during which airway is maintained. Patient can respond to questions and light touch (e.g. “open your eyes”)
2/ Think of sedation as a continuum, understand that a patient can go from mild to general anesthesia within seconds! Review the slide here for the answer to the question above Image
3/ Always be prepared before giving sedation! That includes giving informed consent and making sure you have all materials in the SOAP-ME mnemonic ready Image

1/What are the outcomes that matter to children, to families and to #researchers/clinicians? @ericka_fink et al & @PostPICU_PALISI investigators identified COS using a delphi process. @CritCareMed Developmental and functional outcomes were important.

1.A primer on airway obstruction in #Sedation @pedsedation @PediAnesthesia @hyguruprep #MedTwitter
Lets focus on hypo-pharyngeal collapse & Laryngospasm
First lets review the Starling resistor model for airway obstruction (Butler JP et al. J Physiol. 2013 May 1;591(9):2233-4)
2. The nasal & tracheal structures support a collapsible segment-supraglottic area (CN IX, X & XII innervation).Sedatives inhibit tone of this segment with propensity to collapse more. The collapse can be exacerbated by diaphragmatic contraction (inspiratory negative pressure).
3.Supraglottic segment thus acts like a Starling resistor as its caliber is affected by pressures within the lumen. Loss of tone from sedation +negative pressure narrows the AP distance between the posterior pharynx & soft palate, epiglottis. @agstormorken @Pedisedationdoc

1/ #Sedation & #Delirium in #COVID19:

The cornerstone of best sedation practice in #COVID is not a specific drug. It’s about lightening whatever you use to allow the brain to take over again as captain of the body’s ship.

2/ Personally, & this is a share of my own weakness, it makes a huge difference when my patient is awake & not sedated. Awake patients immediately become humans with real lives beyond the ICU.

3/ The outer shell of patients changes in my mind’s eye when they are lying in a drug-induced coma - the person becomes disembodied. I am blind to the person, who doesn’t seem to be with her own body. I know this is a defect in my own abilities as a physician.

Citation counts come from OTHER RESEARCHERS. They are important, yes.

But, sharing #science on #SoMe=broad & instantaneous dissemination to those who focus their time AT THE BEDSIDE. Which may surprise some- but is MOST OF MEDICINE especially....#anesthesiology.(Thread) #AUA2019
A metric like the “Kardashian Index” *MAY* be relevant in genome biology where the proportion of basic/translational science is significantly higher and no immediate bedside application for a general practitioner is there. (and I’m making an assumption here) #medtwitter #aua2019
When your #research is relevant primarily to other #scientists who are also writing research papers then citation counts do more wholly reflect the paper’s impact. But in clinical research, it’s different. Bedside clinicians are looking to the literature for guidance & new ideas.
