  • Key Factors for Successful General Anesthesia of Obese Adult Patients. [Journal Article]
  • JPJ Perianesth Nurs 2019 May 28
  • Larson F, Nyström I, … Engström Å
  • CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of key factors that facilitate and improve the anesthesia care of obese patients is important to provide safe and quality anesthesia to this patient group as obese patients often have small margins and urgent situations can quickly arise. This knowledge enables the nurse anesthetist to be one step ahead and to be ready to take action if complications occur.
  • Oxygenation Impairment during Anesthesia: Influence of Age and Body Weight. [Journal Article]
  • AAnesthesiology 2019; 131(1):46-57
  • Hedenstierna G, Tokics L, … Öhrvik J
  • CONCLUSIONS: PaO2/FIO2 ratio was impaired during anesthesia, and the impairment increased with age and body mass index. Shunt was related to atelectasis and was a more important cause of oxygenation impairment in middle-aged patients, whereas low(Equation is included in full-text article.), likely caused by airway closure, was more important in elderly patients. Shunt but not low(Equation is included in full-text article.)increased with increasing body mass index. Thus, increasing age and body mass index impaired gas exchange by different mechanisms during anesthesia.
