Pain, Critical Care and Anesthesia

Section edited by Yasin S. Al Makadma

Pain, Critical Care and Anesthesia section encompasses three major fields that are often tightly inter-related both historically and in everyday practice. A systematic Translational Medical approach may be our best route towards analysing common links and complete some of our limited understanding of common clinical pictures. Our section will also contribute in the understanding of mechanistic aspect of different anaesthetic agents and molecules and attempt to deepen the insight in the role of pharmacogenetics.

For that to happen, this section welcomes a very wide range of original research and review articles in related areas.

    Effects of hydrogen-rich saline on early acute kidney injury in severely burned rats by suppressing oxidative stress induced apoptosis and inflammation

    Early acute kidney injury (AKI) in severely burned patients predicts a high mortality that is multi-factorial. Hydrogen has been reported to alleviate organ injury via selective quenching of reactive oxygen sp...
