Radial artery cannulation

Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
T E Oh, N J Davis


The status of radial artery cannulation is reviewed. The technique of percutaneous puncture, equipment in use, and known complications are discussed. Recommendations are made for precautionary measures to reduce the complication rate. It is concluded that radial artery cannulation is a safe and useful procedure in certain anaesthetic and intensive care situations.

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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
