Acute hyperglycemia causes vascular endothelial dysfunction in various organs including the cerebral vessels. It is associated with increased mortality and morbidity in the perioperative period. The impact of anesthetic agents on cerebral vasodilatory responses during hyperglycemia remains unclear. We investigated endothelial function in rat cerebral arterioles during acute hyperglycemia, under propofol or desflurane anesthesia.

As reported, patients experience less postoperative pain after propofol-based total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA). In the present study, we investigated the postoperative analgesic effects between pro...
Transcranial Doppler (TCD) of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) enables the measurement of the mean blood velocity (MCA) and the estimation of the cerebral blood flow (CBF), provided that no significan...
Studies have described different recovery profiles of sevoflurane and desflurane typically early after surgery.
Imaging of living, intact Drosophila larvae is challenged if normal bodily function must be observed or when healthy larvae must be recovered for subsequent studies. Here, we describe a simple and sho...
We used a two-hit lung injury rat model that involves mechanical ventilation (MV) following lipopolysaccharide exposure to investigate the effects of propofol on the expression of GABA receptors (GABA...
Evaluate the effect of propofol compared with desflurane on oxidative stress and inflammation markers in obese patients undergoing scheduled bariatric surgery.
Bispectral monitoring anesthesia with remifentanil-desflurane has a better post-operative recovery than remifentanil-propofol.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether propofol can improve quality of recovery compared to desflurane in patients undergoing robotic or laparoscopic gastrectomy.
The purpose of this study is to prove if anesthesia maintained with the inhaled volatile anesthetic desflurane is superior to the intravenously applied propofol anesthesia in off-pump coro...
We hypothesise that patients who receive propofol for maintenance of anaesthesia will report dreaming more often when they emerge from anaesthesia than patients who receive desflurane for ...
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
Vesicular amine transporter proteins that transport the neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE into small SECRETORY VESICLES. Proteins of this family contain 12 transmembrane domains and exchange vesicular PROTONS for cytoplasmic acetylcholine.
Compounds that block release of the neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE.
Bleeding into one or both CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES including the BASAL GANGLIA and the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is often associated with HYPERTENSION and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
