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.

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...
We hypothesize that pregabalin will decrease post-operative pain scores and opioid use following abdominal hysterectomy compared to placebo. This study has been designed to determine if af...
Animals underwent combined general-epidural anesthesia (EGA) is reported to have better long-time outcome than general anesthesia (GA). This study aimed to make overall evaluation of the association b...
Conflicting results have been reported for the i-gel and the laryngeal mask airway proseal (LMA-P) during general anesthesia. The objective of the current investigation was to compare the efficacy and...
Surgical patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are at increased risk of perioperative complications. In this study, we sought to quantify the benefit of avoiding general anesthesi...
The purpose of this work was to investigate differences in patient, disease, and treatment factors between women who received outpatient surgical treatment of breast cancer with paravertebral and gene...
Despite literature suggesting benefits of the regional anesthesia use, the impact of neuraxial anesthesia on perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing lung surgery remains unstudied. We therefore ...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
