Abstract: The practice of pain medicine today is faced with the ever-rising burden of the nation’s opioid epidemic. There has been a strong push to redefine chronic pain treatments and to find analgesic alternatives that avoid the harmful risks of opioid use that lead to diversion, overdose and addiction. Cannabis has been suggested to be an efficacious and safer alternative or replacement for opioids, but a large gap remains between the reported opioid-sparing benefits of

Abstract: In presenting their results comparing the use of sufentanil alone (Group S) versus sufentanil with the addition of remifentanil (Group R) we would like to point out a significant source of potential bias in their study design and reporting of results. Specifically, the authors note that in their protocol atropine was administered in the event of bradycardia and dopamine was administered for hypotension. They present the data comparing the hemodynamic parameters using the two protocols but do not present any data regarding administration of these vaso active agents. This seems like an important omission when presenting data on hemodynamic stability during induction since this would be a significant confounder. Examining the administration of atropine and

Abstract: The majority of postoperative patients report moderate to severe pain, possibly related to opioid underdosing or overdosing during surgery. Nociception Level (NOL) Index has been proposed for the evaluation of the nociception–antinociception balance in the perioperative period and by that, may lead to a more appropriate analgesic regimen. The NOL-index is scaled from 0 to 100; with previous studies suggesting that values >25 nay guide analgesia dosing.
Case Report Pages 272-274
Abstract: Subcortical band heterotopia (SBH) or double cortex is a classic malformation associated with deficient neuronal migration. The syndrome is characterized by the presence of symmetrical and bilateral bands of heterotopic grey matter located between the ventricular wall and the cortical mantle, and clearly separated from both. Affected individuals typically present with epilepsy and mental retardation. Dysarthria, hypotonia, pyramidal syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux, aspiration pneumonia, high arched palate and small jaw may be present.

Abstract: During the COVID-19 pandemic, many outpatient clinics temporarily closed. Telemedicine appointments, which refer to the remote delivery of healthcare services through audio or visual means, were offered as an alternative to in-person visits in an effort to continue delivering quality patient care while practicing social distancing recommendations in a safe manner. We hypothesize that patient satisfaction with telemedicine visits is similar when compared to in-person office visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
