Orlando Plastic Surgeon Sheds Light on Anesthesia Facts and Myths

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/12 -- Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, an Orlando plastic surgeon, has noticed a lot of patient misinformation regarding anesthesia and wants to set some facts straight. Many patients believe local anesthesia is entirely safe and riskless, when in fact even local anesthesia has its own set of concerns patients should address before a procedure. When patients undergo local anesthesia, they are receiving lidocaine in high concentrations to a specified area within a short period of time. The side effects of this fast absorption rate through the blood stream can be toxic. There is the potential for liver damage, liver failure, breathing irregularities, cardiac arrhythmias, and other complications.

Because even local anesthesia can be dangerous if administered incorrectly, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani stresses the importance of having a board-certified, MD Anesthesiologist assist with surgery. The Aesthetic Surgery Centre, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani's Orlando plastic surgery practice, employs only these highly trained anesthesiologists as opposed to the CRNAs that many other practices employ. Board-certified anesthesiologists are specialized doctors trained to prevent lidocaine toxicity, prevent needle injury, and monitor patients' vitals during all stages of their surgical procedure.

Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani also wants all of his patients, whether considering breast augmentation or a less-invasive surgical procedure, to be informed about general anesthesia and its advantages over local anesthesia, which are often overlooked. While many people consider general anesthesia to be a more dangerous option over local injections, he stresses the need for an individual treatment plan for each patient. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani believes there are only a small number of people who are good candidates for local anesthesia -- those patients who exhibit unusually high levels of anxiety and nervousness, as well as patients who are taking prescription medications that would negatively interact with general anesthesia.

The advantages of general anesthesia are shorter surgery times for patients (and therefore less chances of post-operative complications), no need to stop and inject local anesthesia, and less patient movement during the surgical procedure. There have been significant advancements in general anesthesia such as new anesthetic agents (with careful drug selection) and new techniques (such as LMA -- Laryngeal Mask Airway) that allow patients to wake up faster, experience fewer complications, and resume normal activities relatively quickly. But Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani reminds patients that these advantages are dependent on the qualifications of the anesthesiologist, which is why at the Aesthetic Surgery Centre he only employs anesthesiologists who are board-certified.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).
