Postoperative analgesia

J E Utting, J M Smith


Postoperative analgesia both by drugs and regional techniques is reviewed. In the United Kingdom in the last 25 years or more there has been little advance on either front. Some marginal improvement in regard to drugs might be brought about by better education of both doctors and nurses and better patient contact. Extradural analgesia and intercostal block do not offer a complete solution, though a judicious increase in the use certainly of the former might be beneficial. The problem awaits a radical new approach.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
