Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


One of the aims of the Scientific Working Group Neuroanesthesia (WAKNA) of the German Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine is to disseminate new findings in the field of neuroscience and neuroanesthesia and to propagate novel therapeutic and diagnostic options into clinical practice. Once a year, the WAKNA displays and discusses recent noteworthy publications from the past 12 months at the German Anesthesia Meeting. In 2016, a new pharmacologic strategy with dexmedetomidine to prevent postoperative pain after craniotomy, the impact of the widely used anesthetic drug propofol on GABA receptor surface expression, a study highlighting the ultrasound-guided detection of increased intracranial pressure, and an article showing the interactions of neuromuscular blocking drugs on the BIS neuromonitoring were presented.
