Anesthesia for Excision of Common Carotid Artery Aneurysm in a Patient with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection

Clinical Case Report Anesthesia for Excision of Common Carotid Artery Aneurysm in a Patient with Human Virus Infection By A.G. McKenzie, B. Pharm., M.B., Ch.B., F.C.Anaes. Introduction fused with two units of blood prior to surgery the following day. Features of anesthetic importance included unresolved pyrexia, a respiratory rate of 32 per minute and coughing of mucoid sputum. However, air entry was satisfactory, and arterial oxygen saturation per pulse oximeter (Sp02) was 94-95 percent (when breathing air). The neck swelling restricted her mouth-opening to an interincisor gap of 2.5 cm. Heart rate was 114 beat/min-1 and arterial blood pressure was 140/90 mm Hg. The patient was given oral morphine 10 mg (her current dosage) preoperatively. On arrival in the O.R., a 14-G IV cannula was inserted under local anesthesia (in addition to an 18-G cannula). A 20-G cannula was inserted in the right radial artery (under local anesthesia) for direct monitoring of arterial pressure and to facilitate blood gas measurement. Arterial blood pressure was also monitored noninvasively (Dinamap) on the left arm. Further monitoring included the use of a precordial stethoscope, continuous ECG, pulse oximetry, and urine output. Crossmatched blood was ready and checked in the O.R. She http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png AIDS Patient Care Mary Ann Liebert
