An example from using human factors guidelines as performance criteria, anaesthesia would be the management of malignant with an instructor who is specifcally accredited in this hyperthermia. An example from aviation Checklists are specifcally addressed below, whilst the other categories are referred to in context in the text On British Midland Flight 92, on 8 January 1989, cross adjoining this section. There were other indicators available to allow Checklists the correct course of action. The air- use of checklists can empower subordinates to insist on craft crashed on a motorway just short of the runway with the adherence to approved and safe procedures. In analyzing the event, if attention is only on the trainee, then the opportunity to ‘fx the system’ will be missed. If, however, the response is to impose a ‘sign off’ of a written equipment checklist and to prohibit inexperienced anaes- thetists from working alone in remote areas, then many more critical situations will be prevented. In this scenario technology can not be improved upon: reservoir bags cannot be made indestructible. Lack of profciency will make the outcome worse if the anaesthetist does not have the knowledge and skills to carry out the necessary emergency procedures. Standard operating procedure will greatly assist the team in this situation: use of a self- infating bag in the frst instance and a call for senior help. He must recognize that the situation has changed and he must not ‘posture’ but must declare the emergency and get appropriate help. Anaesthetists can take many important lessons from avia- tion and can usefully adopt tools, such as checklists and An example from anaesthesia standard operating procedures, into their practice.

Tracheal Diseases The trachea is involved by many conditions that include infections cheap mycelex-g 100mg on line kill fungus gnats with cinnamon, neoplasms and changes in calibre related to associated pathologies in adjacent structures generic mycelex-g 100 mg on-line fungus under skin. Tracheal compression and displacement comm- only occurs with adjacent neoplasms originating in the neck or mediastinum or both. Tracheal enlargement occurs in patients with emphysema and constrictive bronchiectasis. When the trachea is compressed in the coronal plane but elongated in the sagittal plane, a sabre-sheath trachea results. Plain radiographs may show opacities in the air-shadow of the trachea, especially in the lateral view. The use of reconstruction techniques, especially sagittal and coronal reconstructions and virtual endoscopy allow better appreciation of these pathologies. Foreign Bodies and Other Obstructions Foreign bodies are common in childhood, the commonest substance being a peanut. Depending on their location they may present with differing clinical signs and symptoms. In cases of complete obstruc- tion, the underlying lung or segment is usually collapsed and shows absence of air bronchograms, on chest radiographs. Often patients present with repeated paucity of vessels and air-trapping (C) episodes of parenchymal infection, especially in the 38 Textbook of Pulmonary Medicine Figs 2. More commonly, tracheo-bronchial involvement is in the form of extrinsic compression or encasement by the mediastinal component of the neoplasm. Effusion, Empyema Masses The commonest pathology involving the pleura is Tracheal neoplasms are uncommon. The least These are submucosal tumors and present just like fluid that can be picked up on a chest radiograph is foreign bodies, either with collapse or with air- 15 cc in the decubitus position.

Clinical features Glandular fever often afects young adults (12–25 years) and results in malaise, fever, tonsillitis, petechial haemorrhages on the palate, and lym- phadenopathy. There are many investigations available that will help determine the predominant site of destruction, which, in turn, will help defne the underly- ing cause of haemolysis, which is why we do the tests in the frst place. Detection of haemolysis itself The main question is whether the patient’s anaemia is due to haemolysis or some other underlying mechanism such as blood loss, marrow infltration, etc. Evidence of red blood cell destruction • i serum bilirubin (split conjugated/unconjugated is useful). Evidence of increased red blood cell production • i reticulocytes (on flm, manual, or automated count). Guidelines on the management of drug- induced immune and secondary autoimmune, haemolytic anaemia. The reticulocyte count is also a use- ful measure of response to haematinic (iron, B12, or folate) replacement therapy. Detection and measurement • Modern automated blood counters using laser technology measure the number of reticulocytes directly. Note: the return of reticulocytes is the earliest sign of response to replacement therapy. Hp–Hb complexes do not appear in the urine because their large size prevents them from passing through the renal tubules. However, the Hp level is frequently reduced in patients with extravascular haemolysis, and the Hp level cannot be used to determine whether the basic haemolytic process is intra- or extravascular. It should generally be accompanied by estimation of serum methaemalbumin, free plasma Hb, and urinary haemosiderin. Conditions with decreased haptoglobins Haemolysis including • Incompatible blood transfusion. Note: it takes about 1 week after haemolysis has stopped for Hp levels to return to normal. Generally, serum bilirubin levels are 17–50µmol/l in haemolysis (mainly unconjugated). Urinary haemosiderin Usage The most widely used and reliable test for detection of chronic intravascu- lar haemolysis.
