To Evaluate the Effect of Chlorhexidine-benzidamine Administration

The use of laryngeal mask (LMA) for the purpose of providing airway safety of patients is a common method in general anesthesia practice. This practice does not require laryngoscopy and there is no laryngeal and tracheal stimulation until endotracheal intubation, so an increased hemodynamic response is not expected in the patient. LMA is an airway control device consisting of a silicon mask commonly used in cases where endotracheal intubation (ETE) is not required and a silicon...

The investigators developed the iADAPTS mobile application to support adherence to Str...

Auditive and Renal Long Term Outcomes - Risk After Aminoglycoside Therapy in Neonates (AURORA)

Gentamicin, in combination with a beta-lactam antibiotic, is commonly used for treatment of neonatal sepsis. Neonates have a high volume of distribution. It is a paradox that most neonatal dosing schedules still recommend lower gentamicin doses (4-5 mg/kg) than in older children (≥ 7 mg/kg). In the neonatal unit in Tromsø a simplified gentamicin high-dose (6 mg/kg) regimen has been in use since 2004. The investigators have previously shown that this regimen was associated w...
