Interesting succinct note on a major issue, noting a possible association between cardiopulmonary bypass and this common complication.
Peripheral Vasoconstriction During Mental Stress and Adverse Cardiovascular Outcomes in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease
October 26, 2019
Interesting clinicolaboratory experiment: Any translational value for the coronary surgeon and the cardiologist remains to be seen, especially regarding the risk stratification and prioritization for urgent (inpatient) revascularisation. Also, the value of the observation for the cardiovascular anesthetist may be important with regards to induction

A narrative review offering an intensivists' viewpoint on specific cardiovascular sequela of double-lumen anaesthesia for pulmonary resections (and by extension, implantation of donor lungs) and other cardiothoracic and vascular operations.
October 14, 2019
An extremely interesting research question abutting cardiac physiology, and a manuscript that may generate future additional clinical research.
