Dr. Rowan Molnar |#DrRowanMolnar – The Expert Specialist for Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

One of the major clinical tools available for evaluating the outcomes as well as exercise capacity of patients suffering from heart failure is cardiopulmonary exercise testing. Also regarded as CPET, it emerges as a sensitive as well as non-invasive test of stress for the patients. Your individual capability of working harder as well as faster in terms of exercise particularly depends on your individual condition or disease that particularly affects your muscles, heart and lungs.
In other words, it effectively assesses the functioning of muscles, lungs and heart individually and in unity. Your entire cardiovascular goes under assessment in this type of testing. Experts for this particular testing in Australia are few and hence run widespread demand. Dr. Rowan Molnar (#DrRowanMolnar)is among the foremost of those rare gems.

CPET’s widespread applicability
Every crucial metabolism of the body essentially relates to your heart, muscles and lungs in some way or the other. Changing metabolic, heart and lung conditions can lead you to exercise intolerance, breath shortness, discomfort and chest pain. By undergoing a successful CPET, you can effectively determine the following major issues occurring within your body:
  • ·         Heart disease (Myocardial Ischemia)
  • ·         Heart failure
  • ·         Dysfunction of cardiac valve
  • ·         Disorders related to pulmonary ventilation
  • ·         Chronotropic incompetence
  • ·         Disorders related to pulmonary circulation
  • ·         Disorders of muscle metabolism
  • ·         Deconditioning

Dr Rowan Molnar (#DrRowanMolnar): Role of Anaesthesia in orthopaedic surgery

The selection of anaesthesia is a major decision that can have a significant impact on the recovery of a patient who requires to undergo orthopaedic surgery. Anaesthetist Dr Rowan Molnar (#DrRowanMolnar) says “every patient must be evaluated thoroughly prior to determining the type of pain control. Some of these factors include a patient’s past experiences with anaesthesia, and reactions, if any. What is most important is the patient’s current health and physical condition. One of the most essential factors in the pre-operative stage is to determine if the patient has any allergies, side effects from the use of drugs, and what medications or nutritional supplements and herbal remedies are currently being taken.” Discussing the risks involved depending on the selection of anaesthesia is also one of the major issues that every anaesthesiologist discusses with their patients.

Types of anaesthesia

There are three broad categories of anaesthesia, which includes local, regional and general anaesthesia. For major orthopaedic surgeries such as hip or knee replacement, local anaesthesia may be used to complement the main type of anaesthesia, to support pain control. On the other hand regional anaesthesia involves blocking of the nerves without any impact on the brain or breathing functions. This includes a spinal block where anaesthesia is injected into the spinal fluid that surrounds the spinal cord. Epidural block involves the use of local anaesthetics that are inserted into the lower back with the help of a catheter over a variable period of time. A peripheral nerve block involves the administration of local anaesthetics directly around major nerves such as the femoral or sciatic nerve in the thigh region. This block only numbs the leg that is injected. Anaesthetists may administer a one-time injection around the nerves or may opt to keep a catheter in place, which delivers local anaesthesia continuously around the nerves during and several days after orthopaedic surgery.
