Background and Aims:Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgeries contribute positively to postoperative complications, length of hospital stay and management of pain. We aimed to present our experience in awake thoracoscopic surgeries with high thoracic epidural to the patients with limited functional lung capacity.Methods:8 patients underwent uniportal thoracoscopy and thoracoscopic surgery. Epidural catheter was inserted at the T3-4 level in the operation room. 2 mg of morphine and 25 mg of Bupivacaine were administered from the epidural catheter. T2 - L1 sensory block formation was observed in patients.ResultsPleurectomy -pleurodesis was performed in 7 and wedge resection in one of 8 patients. The mean operation time was 25.4 min, and in 2 patients operation was 45 min. Two patients had coughing during the operation, stellate ganglion block was performed, and the surgery proceed. None of the patients developed intraoperative complications. No hemodynamic changes were observed.Conclusions:We believe that thoracic epidural, and awake surgery are safe and usable in patients with poor general condition and comorbidities. Two important conditions that can be seen in awake thoracic surgery are coughing during the operation and postoperative period of open pneumothorax. The complaint of cough that may occur is disturbing both the patient's comfort and the surgical team, and the stellate ganglion block is highly beneficial in our case. Awake thoracoscopy also begins to take place in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocols (ERAS) which are tried to be formed in thoracic surgery anesthesia. We believe awake thoracoscopic surgery can safely performed in selected patients.

Only very few therapeutic modalities are used as extensively as mechanical ventilation in intensive care units, during anaesthesia and in emergency situations. Hence theoretical and practical knowledge in this technique had to be made available to workers in a number of medical specialities. In addition to anaesthetists, who are most familiar with artificial ventilation for historical and practical reasons, surgeons, internists, paediatricians and emergency physicians also need a foundation. Furthermore, the widespread application of this life-supporting method requires that paramedical personnel such as nurses and respiratory therapists be trained to use mechanical ventilation, to understand how it works and to be aware of specific side effects and dangers. This book, edited by Fran~ois Lemaire, is a well-designed present ation of a number of the relevant aspects, types and problems of mechanical ventilation which are important for physicians and paramedical personnel who use it. After a description of the technical principles and maintenance of an artificial ventilator, the main part of the book is devoted to the most frequently used types of mechanical respiratory support, with their specific indications, the pathophysiology of their effects on pulmonary gas exchange and the specific choice and regulation ofthe mechanical variables involved. Older and new types of ventilatory support are discussed; there is a good balance of enough specific information for the inexperienced as well as a critical analysis of the indications for more exotic techniques, such as mandatory minute ventilation, independent lung ventilation and airway pressure release.
