Effect of Pregabalin on Propofol Induction Dose
The primary issue is to determine whether preoperatively administered pregabalin decreases the necessary dose of propofol during induction of general anesthesia. The investigators secondary issue is to test if preoperatively administered pregabalin decreases anxiety.

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
The period of emergence from general anesthesia, where different elements of consciousness return at different rates.
A barbiturate that is administered intravenously for the production of complete anesthesia of short duration, for the induction of general anesthesia, or for inducing a hypnotic state. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p919)
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)

The general aim of the current study is to describe the effect of pregabalin on colonic and sensory functions in healthy individuals.
The purpose of this research is to determine if post-operative cognition will be better if the general anesthesia for surgery is done with an inhaled (gas through a breathing tube) or intr...

Comparison of two regimens (Sevorane/LMA ctr. Propofol/Remifentanil) for children undergoing MRI in general anesthesia.
Generally, anesthesiologists believe that patients with Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) undergoing noncardiac surgery have significant risks of perioperative morbidity and mortality. Because of the recent s...
