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 pa...
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...
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...
We will be investigating the use of ketamine in sedation for endoscopic procedures, specifically outpatient endoscopy including esophagoduodenoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy. Participants wil...
This randomized controlled pilot clinical trial will enroll patients undergoing dynamic flexible bronchoscopy will be randomized to receive one of the two anesthetic combinations described...
A few studies report comparable analgesic efficacy between low-dose ketamine and opioids such as morphine or fentanyl; however, limited research has explored the safety and effectiveness of intravenou...
To compare cardiovascular function and response to nociception during total intravenous anaesthesia in pigs with propofol, ketamine and either dexmedetomidine or fentanyl administered as a continuous ...
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...
This study aimed to compare analgesic efficacy of intranasal (IN) ketamine to IN fentanyl for moderate to severe pain in children in a pediatric emergency department.
In vitro skin permeation studies are commonly used in the risk assessment of toxic compound skin exposure. The present study examined the utility of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and electrical con...
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.
Laceration or tearing of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM, usually caused by MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
