The BELGIAN ANESTHESIA TRAINEES (BAT) is an independent organisation that represents the interests of the Belgian anesthesia trainees in different institutions on different levels. All BAT members act voluntarily and without financial compensation to improve the position of Belgian anesthesia trainees by elaborating the BAT vision points and adhering to the BAT aims.

Pain management after laparoscopic hysterectomy: systematic review of literature and PROSPECT recommendations.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic hysterectomy is increasingly performed because it is associated with less postoperative pain and earlier recovery as compared with open abdominal hysterectomy. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the available literature regarding the management of pain after laparoscopic hysterectomy.
STRATEGY AND SELECTION CRITERIA:

The DIFFMASK score for predicting difficult facemask ventilation: a cohort study of 46,804 patients.

Facemask ventilation is an essential part of airway management. Correctly predicting difficulties in facemask ventilation may reduce the risk of morbidity and mortality among patients at risk. We aimed to develop and evaluate a weighted risk score for predicting difficult facemask ventilation during anaesthesia. We analysed a cohort of 46,804 adult patients who were assessed pre-operatively airway for 13 predictors of difficult airway management and subsequently underwent facemask ventilation during general anaesthesia.

Interscalene versus supraclavicular plexus block for the prevention of postoperative pain after shoulder surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

BACKGROUND: Interscalene brachial plexus blockade is the most common regional anaesthesia technique for alleviating pain after shoulder surgery, but complications occur, including ipsilateral hemidiaphragmatic paresis, Horner's syndrome and hoarseness. The supraclavicular approach might be an effective alternative with fewer adverse effects.
