Providing adequate sedation and analgesia is an integral part of the practice of colonoscopy procedure.
There are various protocols and methods used to prevent discomfort and alleviate pain. Conscious sedation is one of the options recommended by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, although the choice of the exact protocol is left to the physician's discretion.
This study will attempt to recommend a preferred protocol based on a double blind randomized prospective method.
The efficacy of midazolam and ketamine will be compared to the efficacy of midazolam and fentanyl for sedation in ambulatory colonoscopies.
The results will be compiled from objective data and patient and physician interviews.

Often, repair of the cuts (laceration repair) proves to be traumatic for the children and the parents. Nasal spray (Intranasal/IN) approaches for procedural pain reduction, such as during ...
We will be investigating the use of ketamine in sedation for endoscopic procedures, specifically outpatient endoscopy including esophagoduodenoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy. Participants wil...
The aim of this work is to compare two protocols (ketamine-midazolam versus fentanyl-midazolam) for induction of anesthesia in patients with septic shock aiming to find the most safe proto...
Our hypothesis is that adding midazolam and/or fentanyl to propofol sedation for elective outpatient colonoscopy increases cognitive impairment at hospital discharge without improving intr...
The general objective of this study is to determine whether intranasal ketamine should be incorporated into formulary as an option to treat pain during minor procedures in the pediatric em...
Recent studies have shown that etomidate is associated with fewer serious adverse events than propofol and has a noninferior sedative effect. We investigated whether etomidate-midazolam is associated ...
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 ef...
To evaluated the apoptosis in parotid glands of rats treated with Midazolam associated or not with Pilocarpine, Sixty Wistar rats were assigned to 6 groups: control group received saline solution for ...
Intoxication with organophosphorus compounds can result in life-threatening organ dysfunction and refractory seizures. Sedation or hypnosis is essential to facilitate mechanical ventilation and contro...
Rats poisoned with sarin enter into a hyper-cholinergic crisis characterized by excessive salivation, respiratory distress, tremors, seizures, and death. Through the use of rescue medications and an a...
A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.
A cytochrome P-450 monooxygenase that is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway by oxidizing a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including STEROIDS; FATTY ACIDS; and XENOBIOTICS. This enzyme has clinical significance due to its ability to metabolize a diverse array of clinically important drugs such as CYCLOSPORINE; VERAPAMIL; and MIDAZOLAM. This enzyme also catalyzes the N-demethylation of ERYTHROMYCIN.
A cyclohexanone derivative used for induction of anesthesia. Its mechanism of action is not well understood, but ketamine can block NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE) and may interact with sigma receptors.
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
A hallucinogen formerly used as a veterinary anesthetic, and briefly as a general anesthetic for humans. Phencyclidine is similar to KETAMINE in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and Angel Dust.
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. ...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
