To evaluate the clinical effects and quality of sedation, induction, maintenance and recovery in Lemur catta after dexmedetomidine-butorphanol-midazolam sedation and alfaxalone anaesthesia.
The depth of dexmedetomidine-induced sedation is difficult to assess without arousing the patient. We evaluated frontal electroencephalogram (EEG) as an objective measure of dexmedetomidine-induced sedation. Our aims were to characterize the response patterns of EEG during a wide range of dexmedetomidine-induced sedation and to determine which spectral power best correlated with assessed levels of dexmedetomidine-induced sedation.
Owing to its unpredictability, unexpected patient movement is one of the most important problems during surgery while under monitored anesthesia care with sedation. The purpose of this study was to compare unexpected patient movement during dental surgery while under dexmedetomidine and propofol sedation.
Sedation induces changes in electroencephalography (EEG) dynamics. However, the distinct EEG dynamic characteristics at comparable sedation levels have not been well studied, resulting in potential interpretation errors in EEG monitoring during sedation. We aimed to analyze the EEG dynamics of dexmedetomidine and propofol at comparable sedation levels and to explore EEG changes with increased sedation levels for each agent. We measured the Bispectral Index (BIS) and 20-channel EEG under dexmedetomidine and ...
Moderate to deep sedation is required for an auditory brainstem response test when high-intensity stimulation is used. Chloral hydrate is the most commonly used sedative, whereas intranasal dexmedetomidine is increasingly used in pediatric non-painful procedural sedations.
Intoxication with organophosphorus compounds can result in life-threatening organ dysfunction and refractory seizures. Sedation or hypnosis is essential to facilitate mechanical ventilation and control seizure activity. The range of indications for midazolam includes both hypnosis and seizure control. Since benzodiazepines cause sedation and hypnosis by dampening neuronal activity of the cerebral cortex, we investigated the drug's effect on action potential firing of cortical neurons in brain slices. Extens...
We aimed to examine if changes in oxygen saturation and pulse rate of pediatric patients during conscious sedation with midazolam and nitrous oxide are associated with child's behavior, midazolam dose, the type and duration of the treatment and demographic parameters.
Dexmedetomidine (Dex) is an attractive agent for procedural sedation due to its unique pharmacodynamic profile, specifically affording predictable sedation without concurrent respiratory depression. However, Dex has previously been reported to prevent or terminate arrhythmias. The purpose of this study was to investigate paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) inducibility and homeostatic stability during electrophysiology studies (EPSs) and ablation when a standardized Dex protocol was used as the p...
Oral surgery can be difficult in patients with chorea-like dyskinesia, which is common in those on long-term levodopa medication for Parkinson's disease, and we know of no conclusive evidence to indicate whether conscious sedation with midazolam is effective in such cases. We report a patient in whom levodopa-induced chorea-like dyskinesia disappeared when midazolam was given intravenously for conscious sedation.
In patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty under spinal anesthesia, we compared the postoperative analgesic effect of intraoperative sedation with dexmedetomidine versus propofol. We hypothesized that sedation with dexmedetomidine would result in lower postoperative opioid analgesic consumption than with propofol.
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Several factors within the perioperative period may influence postoperative metastatic spread. Dexmedetomidine and midazolam are widely used general anesthetics during surgery. The authors assessed their effects on human lung carcinoma (A549) and neuroglioma (H4) cell lines in vitro and in vivo.
Dexmedetomidine, an alpha 2 receptor agonist, prolongs nerve block duration when administered in conjunction with peripheral nerve blocks. We hypothesised that sedation with dexmedetomidine could also significantly prolong the analgesic duration of brachial plexus block (BPB) during orthopaedic surgery on the upper extremities.
While the complexity of flexible bronchoscopy has increased, standard options for moderate sedation medications have not changed in three decades. There is need to improve moderate sedation while maintaining safety. Remimazolam was developed to address shortcomings of current sedation strategies.
Intravenous sedatives used in the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) need to be tapered after prolonged use to prevent iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome (IWS). We evaluated the occurrence of IWS and the levels of sedation before and after conversion from intravenous midazolam to oral lorazepam.
Midazolam has been successfully used for sedation, which the tablets, injections and oral solutions were available in market. However, the oral bioavailability of midazolam is less due to the first effect, while injection formulation has a low patient compliance. The purpose of this study was to obtain midazolam rectal gel to meet the production and market requirements. We evaluated the in vitro release behavior of midazolam powder, a physical mixture of midazolam and HPMC, and midazolam gel. The results sh...
Dexmedetomidine is increasingly used off-label in infants and children with cardiac disease during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and in the postoperative period. Despite its frequent use, optimal dosing of dexmedetomidine in the setting of CPB has not been identified but is expected to differ from dosing in those not supported with CPB. This study had the following aims: (1) characterize the effect of CPB on dexmedetomidine clearance (CL) and volume of distribution (V) in infants and young children; (2) char...
A distinction needs to be made between intermediate and continuous sedation as well as between minimal, moderate and deep sedation. To gain ethical acceptance it is crucial that for palliative sedation (PS) minimally required doses are administered to decrease suffering. Intermittent PS is used for decreasing physical symptoms, whereas deep continuous PS is used to minimize intolerable suffering or psychological symptoms. Precise medical indication and education of patient and relatives are pre-requireme...
Midazolam and propofol are both used for sedation in gastrointestinal endoscopy. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the efficacy and safety of midazolam and propofol in gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is generally performed under analgosedation, but sedation protocols vary and no optimal protocol has been defined. We investigated procedural, respiratory and hemodynamic parameters in patients undergoing PVI using analgosedation either with or without midazolam.
Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) has gained interest for upper airway evaluation in patients with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and different drugs have been used to induce sedation. Nevertheless, all drugs have presented specific advantages and disadvantages with differential effects on respiratory physiology. This study evaluated and compared the effects of midazolam, propofol and dexmedetomidine on DISE findings, O nadir, and bispectral index (BIS) in the same sample of patients.
To evaluate the relationship between pharmacokinetic descriptors of dexmedetomidine (predicted area under the curve during the procedure, predicted plasma level at the end of the procedure, and duration of procedure) and sedation depth (proportion of time with bispectral index
Opioids can be combined with alpha-2-adrenoreceptor agonists to sedate dogs for radiography. The study investigated the sedative effects of methadone or butorphanol in combination with dexmedetomidine in dogs undergoing stifle radiography.
Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is an α-adrenergic receptor agonist commonly used during perioperative periods due to its sedation and analgesia effect. It is confirmed that DEX has cardioprotective effects against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. We investigated whether DEX administration is beneficial to type 2 diabetic rats subjected to I/R injury.
Dexmedetomidine (DMED) is a potent and highly selective α-adrenergic receptor agonist and is widely used for short-term sedation. However, the mechanism of DMED-induced sedation has not been deciphered. In the present study, we investigated the mechanism of G and G subunits on DMED-induced sedation. An ED of DMED-induced loss of righting reflex (200.0nmol/kg) was increased to 375.0 or 433.3nmol/kg after pre-treatment with cAMP analog dbcAMP (50nmol/5μl/mouse, i.c.v.) or the phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor r...
