A Survey of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia on the Use, Monitoring, and Antagonism of Neuromuscular Blockade.

Debra J Faulk, Thomas M Austin, James J Thomas, Kim Strupp, Andrew W Macrae, Myron Yaster,

<h4>Background</h4>Although the package insert clearly states that "the safety and efficacy of sugammadex in pediatric patients have not been established," we hypothesized that sugammadex is used widely in pediatric anesthetic practice supplanting neostigmine as the primary drug for antagonizing neuromuscular blockade (NMB). Additionally, we sought to identify the determinants by ... Read more >>

A Sensitive LC-MS/MS Assay for the Quantification of Methadone and its Metabolites in Dried Blood Spots: Comparison With Plasma.

Baharak Davari, Nidhi Kotecha, Claudia F Clavijo, James J Thomas, Rachael Rzasa-Lynn, Jeffrey L Galinkin, Uwe Christians, Cristina Sempio,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Methadone, a synthetic narcotic, is widely used both in adults and children for pain control and as a replacement drug in opioid use disorder to prevent craving and withdrawal. To support clinical pharmacokinetic trials in neonates, infants, and children, the authors developed and validated a novel, automated, highly sensitive liquid ... Read more >>

The Use of Patient Digital Facial Images to Confirm Patient Identity in a Children's Hospital's Anesthesia Information Management System.

James J Thomas, Myron Yaster, Patrick Guffey,

INTRODUCTION:Patient identification errors, albeit rare, continue to occur despite the implementation of the Universal Protocol. Researchers at a tertiary care children's hospital hypothesized that introduction of a digital photograph to the preanesthesia checklist would reduce wrong-patient charting and near-miss events around the induction of anesthesia. METHODS:In late 2014 a digital ... Read more >>

Subanesthetic ketamine infusions for the management of pediatric pain in non-critical care settings: An observational analysis.

Melissa M Masaracchia, Brian D Sites, Justin Lee, James J Thomas, Patrick G Fernandez,

<h4>Background</h4>Guidelines issued by the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine suggest that ketamine infusions for acute pain management are advantageous as a primary treatment or as an opioid adjunct. Despite significant data regarding its use in adult patients, there remains a paucity of information related to its quality ... Read more >>

Radiation Safety Perceptions and Practices Among Pediatric Anesthesiologists: A Survey of the Physician Membership of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia.

Gina M Whitney, James J Thomas, Thomas M Austin, Jemel Fanfan, Myron Yaster,

<h4>Background</h4>Pediatric anesthesiologists are exposed to ionizing radiation from x-rays on an almost daily basis. Our goal was to determine the culture of safety in which they work and how they adhere to preventative strategies that minimize exposure risk in their daily practice.<h4>Methods</h4>After Institutional Review Board waiver and approval of the ...

Perioperative Management and In-Hospital Outcomes After Minimally Invasive Repair of Pectus Excavatum: A Multicenter Registry Report From the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia Improvement Network.

Wallis T Muhly, Ralph J Beltran, Alan Bielsky, Robert B Bryskin, Christopher Chinn, Dinesh K Choudhry, Giovanni Cucchiaro, Allison Fernandez, Chris D Glover, Dawit T Haile, Sabine Kost-Byerly, Gregory D Schnepper, David Zurakowski, Rita Agarwal, Tarun Bhalla, Seth Eisdorfer, Henry Huang, Lynne G Maxwell, James J Thomas, Imelda Tjia, Robert T Wilder, Joseph P Cravero,

<h4>Background</h4>There are few comparative data on the analgesic options used to manage patients undergoing minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE). The Society for Pediatric Anesthesia Improvement Network was established to investigate outcomes for procedures where there is significant management variability. For our first study, we established a multicenter observational ... Read more >>

Virtual reality for lumbar puncture in a morbidly obese patient with leukemia.

James J Thomas, Joseph Albietz, David Polaner,

Virtual reality is an immersive technology that can provide distraction and anxiolysis during painful procedures. While it has been shown to be effective in less invasive procedures, it is underutilized in more invasive procedures. We describe using virtual reality for a morbidly obese patient with leukemia undergoing lumbar puncture. The ... Read more >>

Utility of gabapentin in meeting physical therapy goals following posterior spinal fusion in adolescent patients with idiopathic scoliosis.

James J Thomas, Claire Levek, Hannah D Quick, John T Brinton, Sumeet Garg, Mindy N Cohen,

<h4>Of background data</h4>Posterior spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis requires extensive postoperative analgesic care. In 2014, we initiated the use of gabapentin as an adjunct for multimodal pain management in spine fusion patients. The effect of gabapentin on postoperative recovery in scoliosis patients was evaluated using the time to meet postoperative ... Read more >>

A sensitive assay for the quantification of morphine and its active metabolites in human plasma and dried blood spots using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.

Claudia F Clavijo, Keith L Hoffman, James J Thomas, Brendan Carvalho, Larry F Chu, David R Drover, Gregory B Hammer, Uwe Christians, Jeffrey L Galinkin,

Opioids such as morphine are the cornerstone of pain treatment. The challenge of measuring the concentrations of morphine and its active metabolites in order to assess human pharmacokinetics and monitor therapeutic drugs in children requires assays with high sensitivity in small blood volumes. We developed and validated a semi-automated LC-MS/MS ... Read more >>
