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 primary purpose of the GAS study is to determine whether different types of anesthesia (Regional versus General) given to 660 infants undergoing inguinal hernia repair results in equiv...
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...
This study will compare recurrence rates in patients with colorectal cancer who will be randomly assigned to epidural anesthesia/analgesia combined with general anesthesia or to general an...
Comparison of two regimens (Sevorane/LMA ctr. Propofol/Remifentanil) for children undergoing MRI in general anesthesia.
Pregabalin is an antiepileptic, analgesic and anxiolytic drug that GABA analogue with similar structure and actions to gabapentin. There are very few reports about pregabalin intoxication in the liter...
Abstract Conclusion: Similar to combined arytenoid adduction and medialization laryngoplasty (i.e. combined surgery) under local anesthesia, general anesthesia by intubation or by the laryngeal mask a...
The effects of different body positions on the middle ear were reported in several studies, but there are no data about the effects on patients under general anesthesia. The aim of this study is to de...
Perioperative hypothermia is still a common occurrence, and it can be difficult to measure a patient's core temperature accurately, especially during regional anesthesia, with placement of a laryngeal...
Simultaneous administration of epidural local anesthetic agents (LA) and general anesthetics (intravenous or inhaled) is a common procedure in patients undergoing major operations. The effects of epid...
