Propofol But Not Desflurane Maintains Rat Cerebral Arteriolar Responses to Acetylcholine During Acute Hyperglycemia.

Summary of "Propofol But Not Desflurane Maintains Rat Cerebral Arteriolar Responses to Acetylcholine During Acute Hyperglycemia."

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.

Effects of intraoperative propofol-based total intravenous anesthesia on postoperative pain in spine surgery: Comparison with desflurane anesthesia - a randomised trial.

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...

Propofol/Remifentanil Anesthesia Might Not Alter the Middle Cerebral Artery Diameter by Digital Subtraction Angiography.

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...

A randomized trial of desflurane or sevoflurane on postoperative quality of recovery after knee arthroscopy.

Studies have described different recovery profiles of sevoflurane and desflurane typically early after surgery.

Chloroform and Desflurane Immobilization with Recovery of Viable Drosophila Larvae for Confocal Imaging.

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...

Propofol reduces acute lung injury by up-regulating gamma-aminobutyric acid type a receptors.

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...

Desflurane Versus Propofol Anesthesia for Off-Pump CABG

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...

Dreaming and EEG Changes During Anaesthesia Maintained With Propofol or Desflurane

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 ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
