Cruising the Robotic Turbulance


For his half of the RSC Anesthesia in Robotic Surgery session, Medanta Consultant Anesthesiologist Dr. Jyotirmoy Das titled his talk Cruising the Robotic Turbulance- A Survivors Diary. “It was not smooth sailing at all” he claims, and lists some of the difficulties encountered along the way. Complications observed included one cardiac arrest, conjunctival edema, clinically significant head and neck edema and other items. Posterior ischemic optic neuropathy following minimally invasive prostatectomy procedures is a concern he discusses, along with practices to help prevent this from occurring.
