Samata R Paidy
- Clinical Associate Professor, Anesthesiology - (Clinical Series Track)
Dr. Paidy received her undergraduate degree in Elecrical Engineering/Pre-Medicine from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. She then went on to medical school at Mahadevappa Rampure Medical College in India. Her Internship was done in General Surgery at Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, New York. Dr. Paidy completed her residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio. She did a Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship at the University of Cincinnati as well. Upon completion of her fellowship, she was hired as an Assistant Professor and the University of Cincinnati before relocating to Tucson, Arizona. She is now an Assitant Professor at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

Journal of thrombosis and thrombolysis.More infoWhile topical thrombin application can markedly improve surgical hemostasis, rapid absorption of thrombin can result in pulmonary embolism and death. We report a case of accidental interstitial infiltration of topical thrombin after hemorrhoidectomy that was treated with administration of human antithrombin and heparin anticoagulation. Except for a marked decrease in antithrombin activity from super normal to normal values, the patient exhibited no laboratory or clinical signs of pulmonary embolism, thrombin mediated consumptive loss of procoagulants, or regional thrombosis. The patient had an uncomplicated recovery without sign of thrombotic morbidity. While it is hoped that such a medical misadventure should not occur, our case may serve as a reference to guide anticoagulant therapy if such a clinical scenario arises.

International journal of legal medicine.More infoWe present a case of a patient undergoing aortic valve replacement being inadvertently administered 5000 U of bovine thrombin instead of heparin for anticoagulation for cardiopulmonary bypass. The labeling error was made within the operating room pharmacy. The key to survival of this patient was a rapid diagnosis, administration of antithrombin and heparin, and removal of cardiac and great vessel thrombi. It is recommended that point of care anesthesia providers `prepare heparin for cardiopulmonary bypass anticoagulation, as thrombin is not used in anesthetic practice and is not contained within anesthesia cabinet medication drawers.

Blood coagulation & fibrinolysis : an international journal in haemostasis and thrombosis.More infoHypoxia has been proposed to enhance, diminish, or have no effect on laboratory measures of coagulation or clinical thrombosis. Further, there usually are significant pathological or environmental factors concurrently present with hypoxia. Thus, the goal of the present investigation was to determine whether whole blood or plasmatic coagulation and fibrinolytic kinetics would change in response to progressive hypoxia to a systemic oxygenation (SpO2) of 70%. Healthy, conscious volunteers (n = 9) breathing a hypoxic mixture of gases during an in-vivo validation of noninvasive cerebral oximetry had blood samples collected and assessed with thrombelastography at normoxia and after SpO2 of 70%. A mild release of endogenous heparin-like activity occurred that diminished plasmatic coagulation, and a mild increase in clot lysis time also was noted. Further investigation to determine whether these phenomena occur in more chronic, less hypoxic states as sources of hypocoagulation or thrombophilia is needed.

Robotic Left Ventricular Assist Device Implantation Using Left Thoracotomy Approach in Patients with Previous Sternotomies. ASAIO journal (American Society for Artificial Internal Organs : 1992), 61(6), e44-6.More infoLeft ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are commonly used as either a bridge-to-transplant or a destination therapy. The traditional approach for LVAD implantation is via median sternotomy, but many candidates for this procedure have a history of failed cardiac surgeries and previous sternotomy. Redo sternotomy increases the risk of heart surgery, particularly in the setting of advanced heart failure. Robotics facilitates a less invasive approach to LVAD implantation that circumvents some of the morbidity associated with a redo sternotomy. We compared the outcomes of all patients at our institution who underwent LVAD implantation via either a traditional sternotomy or using robotic assistance. The robotic cohort showed reduced resource utilization including length of hospital stay and use of blood products. As the appropriate candidates become elucidated, robotic assistance may improve the safety and cost-effectiveness of reoperative LVAD surgery.

Robotic-assisted implantation of ventricular assist device after sternectomy and pectoralis muscle flap. ASAIO journal (American Society for Artificial Internal Organs : 1992), 60(6), 742-3.More infoLeft ventricular assist devices are increasingly important in the management of advanced heart failure. Most patients who benefit from these devices have had some prior cardiac surgery, making implantation of higher risk. This is especially true in patients who have had prior pectoralis flap reconstruction after sternectomy for mediastinitis. We outline the course of such a patient, in whom the use of robotic assistance allowed for a less invasive device implantation approach with preservation of the flap for transplantation.

Anesthesia and analgesia, 119(6), 1315-9.More infoTraditional patient monitoring may not detect cerebral tissue hypoxia, and typical interventions may not improve tissue oxygenation. Therefore, monitoring cerebral tissue oxygen status with regional oximetry is being increasingly used by anesthesiologists and perfusionists during surgery. In this study, we evaluated absolute and trend accuracy of a new regional oximetry technology in healthy volunteers.
