2017-04-14 04:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Prospective study conducted between March 2013 and November 2014 at Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda, in Madrid, Spain to identify complications and evaluate the efficacy of pure inhalational anesthesia induction to achieve endotracheal intubation without the use of muscle relaxant and analgesic drugs.

Description

This is a prospective study conducted between March 2013 and November 2014 at Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda, in Madrid, Spain, with the previous approval by the institutional clinical research ethics committee. A total of 91 subjects who underwent general, gastrointestinal, orthopedic, urology and neurological surgery were randomly selected and provided written informed consent before any study-related procedures were performed.

The aim of this study was to identify complications and evaluate the efficacy of pure inhalational anesthesia induction to achieve endotracheal intubation without the use of muscle relaxant and analgesic drugs.

Effect of Sevoflurane on the Onset Characteristics and Intubating Conditions of Rocuronium

This study evaluates the potentiation of muscle relaxation caused by rocuronium by inhalational agent sevoflurane. Half the patients will be ventilated with oxygen ,nitrous oxide and sevof...

The Effect of no Muscle Relaxant Versus Reduced-dose Rocuronium on Anesthesia in Adenotonsillectomy

This study aimed to compare the effect of no muscle relaxants and reduced-dose rocuronium on the anesthetic induction and emergence with fentanyl in children undergoing adenotonsillectomy.

Study of Efficacy, Pharmacokinetics, and Safety of Bolus Maintenance Doses of Org 9426 (Study P05976)(COMPLETED)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and safety of Org 9426 in maintenance of muscle relaxation in adult subjects undergoing general elective surgery.

Optimal Dose of Combination of Rocuronium and Cisatracurium

BACKGOUND: The combinations of rocuronium and cisatracurium have a synergic effect. The investigators studied whether the prediction is possible to have a sufficient effect of reducing the...

Fentanyl and Propofol for Tracheal Intubation During Sevoflurane Induction Without Muscle Relaxants in Children

Several methods have been proposed to improve intubating conditions and minimize sevoflurane induction time during sevoflurane induction in children. These include clonidine premedication,...

The Pringle maneuver reduces the infusion rate of rocuronium required to maintain surgical muscle relaxation during hepatectomy.

We investigated the continuous infusion rates of rocuronium necessary to obtain the surgical muscle relaxation before, during, and after the Pringle maneuver on patients who underwent hepatectomy.

Corrected QT interval prolongation during anesthetic induction for laryngeal mask airway insertion with or without cisatracurium.

Objective This study was performed to observe the occurrence of corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation during anesthetic induction for laryngeal mask airway insertion and the effects of cisatracuriu...

Cisatracurium induces mast cell activation and pseudo-allergic reactions via MRGPRX2.

Pseudo-allergic reactions occur when patients receive muscle relaxants during perioperative anesthesia. These reactions may result in a serious threat to the patient's life, particularly to a child's ...

Analgesic effects of systemic fentanyl on cancer pain are mediated by not only central but also peripheral opioid receptors in mice.

Fentanyl is an opioid commonly prescribed for cancer pain. Using melanoma-bearing mice, we investigated whether peripheral action would contribute to fentanyl analgesia in cancer pain. Intravenous inj...

Motor imagery of voluntary muscle relaxation of the foot induces a temporal reduction of corticospinal excitability in the hand.

The object of this study was to clarify how the motor imagery of foot muscle relaxation influences corticospinal excitability for the ipsilateral hand. Twelve participants volitionally relaxed their r...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

That phase of a muscle twitch during which a muscle returns to a resting position.

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)

Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p174)

Prolonged failure of muscle relaxation after contraction. This may occur after voluntary contractions, muscle percussion, or electrical stimulation of the muscle. Myotonia is a characteristic feature of MYOTONIC DISORDERS.

Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)
