Press Releases

Goldilocks Anesthesia just published the secret to preventing both postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and postoperative pain. Dementia after anesthesia could be dramatically reduced by the widespread use of brain monitoring as well as reducing up to 30% of unnecessary anesthetic drugs given. 'Medicate the brain, measure it' was publicly proclaimed as a standard of care by Friedberg more than two years ago.

Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation warns about avoiding dementia after anesthesia. Especially for patients over 50, anesthesia over medication is a serious public health risk when anesthesia is given without a brain monitor. The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) remains focused on the 0.1% issue of 'awareness.' The 'red herring' public disinformation campaign is why Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation claims the ASA has 'fouled out' during March Madness.

Without preemptive analgesia (i.e. preventing pain during surgery), patients often need narcotic pain relief after surgery. ‘Goldilocks’ propofol ketamine (PK) anesthesia patients, using a brain monitor and preemptive analgesia, have only taken Tylenol® or Toradol® after surgery, NOT narcotics, for postoperative pain.

“What part of ‘medicate the brain, measure it’ does the ASA not understand?” asks prominent, board certified anesthesiologist Barry Friedberg, MD. “Is the ASA not as smart as a fifth grader?”

The real public health risk is the routine practice of anesthesia over medication and post anesthesia dementia. Without widespread use of brain monitors for 'going under,' 99.9% of all patients are exposed to the risk of anesthesia over medication.

Routine anesthesia over medication is a common practice without brain monitoring. Why does the ASA appear to continue to resist calling for routine brain monitoring to avoid over medication, especially for seniors whose brains are more susceptible to those effects? Big Pharma millions appear to preclude ASA advocating greater patient safety.

Office-based anesthesia (OBA) presents a unique problem set for anesthesiologists to solve. Patients must wake up quickly and able to go home pain, nausea and vomiting free.

“Propofol ketamine or PK anesthesia is a powerful solution that has set a higher standard of care for patient safety in outpatient surgery,” says Dr. F. Don Parsa, Chief of University of Hawaii plastic surgery.

Brain monitoring of Jackson's propofol could have saved his life despite the other drugs in his body. For the second consecutive year, propofol expert, Dr. Barry Friedberg will address the annual Congress of Mexican Anesthesiologists, this year in Veracruz, Mexico. Also, an expert on brain monitoring of propofol, Friedberg will lecture on how to increase its usefulness with his internationally acclaimed PK (or propofol ketamine) anesthesia. Unlike general anesthesia, PK anesthesia has had no deaths since its inception in 1992.

With a 'facelift' for the 21st century, Dr. Barry Friedberg's Cosmetic Surgery Anesthesia web site continues to showcase PK anesthesia.

Brain monitoring de-mystified for the public. Friedberg's Triad revisited.

Dr. Barry Friedberg can say, 1) brain monitoring of propofol may not be common, but it absolutely needs to be; 2) the unorthodox use of propofol on Michael Jackson demanded the safest of care; 3) propofol for sleep is not the medically approved use of the drug; 4) practicing 'outside the box' absolutely demands the use of a brain monitor to measure propofol effect; 5) Jackson would certainly be alive today if his propofol had been measured with a brain monitor. It's a no-brainer. 6) Propofol demands the use of the most basic safety monitor, a pulse oximeter. Otherwise, it's reckless disregard.
