Changes in Tissue and Cerebral Oxygenation Following Spinal Anesthesia in Neonates, Infants, and Children

2016-07-22 02:53:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Investigators have started an awake spinal anesthesia program in conjunction with pediatric surgical colleagues. Patients are offered the option of awake spinal anesthesia instead of general anesthesia for appropriate surgical procedures. Previous studies have demonstrated a lack of significant hemodynamic changes in neonates and infants following spinal anesthesia; however, there are limited data regarding its impact on tissue oxygenation. The goal of the current study is to assess changes in tissue and cerebral oxygenation using non-invasive near infrared spectroscopy following spinal anesthesia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
