The incidence of asthma is increasing worldwide, but morbidity and mortality are decreasing because of improvements in medical care. Although the incidence of severe perioperative bronchospasm is relatively low in asthmatics undergoing anaesthesia, when it does occur it may be life-threatening.

Asimple questionnaire canidentifychildren withpoorly controlled asthma who suffer from asthma symptoms that limit their daily activities. A panel ofasthma specialists developed two questionnaires (Childhood Asthma Control Test, C-ACT score), one for children aged 4-11 years and another for those aged >II. Objective: To assess the incidence of anaesthetic complications in a cohort of patients with asthma undergoing anaesthesia and surgery. Design, Setting and Patients: 79 patients (who underwent a total of 80 anaesthetics) who were admitted for elective surgery at a major tertiary referral hospital, during a seven month period were enrolled. Data on asthma control and severity were collected. Dexmedetomidine used in monitored anesthesia care produces a safe and effective technique well docu-mented in research. We report the successful use of dexmedetomidine for sedation during bronchial ther-moplasty, a new treatment for patients with severe persistent asthma refractory to inhaled corticosteroids and long-term β-2 agonists

Anesthesia in these patients is associated with specific risks that are higher than in patients without asthma. Preoperative assessment should focus on characterization of the severity of the patient's disease, assuring that medical management is optimal and the disease symptoms are stable
Anesthesia Preoperative Evaluation: Asthma. Asthma is described as a chronic medical condition where the small airways in the lungs—the bronchi—swell and constrict. This causes a subjective feeling of shortness of breath and the objective finding of decreased or turbulent air movement heard as wheezing

Degree of asthma control: If your asthma isn't well-controlled, your risk of adverse post-surgical events increases.You could have poorly controlled asthma if you aren't.
Introduction. Asthma is a common condition with reversible airflow obstruction due to constriction of smooth muscle in the airways. Bronchial wall inflammation is a fundamental component of asthma, and results in mucus hypersecretion and epithelial damage, as well as an increased tendency for airways to constrict

Introduction. Asthma continues to inflict significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite advances in therapy and in our understanding of its pathophysiology, the prevalence of asthma is increasing [1-3], although there is significant age and geographic variation .While the prevalence of asthma has increased, outcomes of severe asthma appear to be improving, with lower complication.

Isoflurane Versus Sevoflurane. Though isoflurane is the most widely used inhaled anesthetic in patients with refractory status asthmaticus, other agents, such as halothane and sevoflurane, have been used to treat bronchospasm. 12, 13 Rooke and colleagues compared the effects of isoflurane, halothane, sevoflurane, and thiopental/nitrous oxide on.

Asthma is a condition of acute, fully reversible airway inflammation, often following exposure to an environmental trigger.

UpToDate, the evidence-based clinical decision support resource from Wolters Kluwer, is trusted at the point of care by clinicians worldwide Providing anesthesia to patients with myotonic dystrophy (DM) can be very challenging due to the multisystemic effects of the disease and extreme sensitivity of these patients to sedatives, opioids, and anesthetic agents. Other factors such as hypothermia, shivering, or mechanical or electric stimulation during surgery can precipitate myotonia which is difficult to abolish and can lead to. INTRODUCTION. This topic will review the anesthetic and other clinical effects of inhalation anesthetics including the potent volatile agents (sevoflurane, desflurane, isoflurane [and in some countries, halothane]) and one gas (nitrous oxide [N 2 O]), as well as uses of each agent to induce and maintain general anesthesia.
