The use of 100% oxygen during the induction of general anesthesia is always preferable in order to have enough time to secure the airway by endotracheal intubation, because preoxygenation ...
Clinical trial controlled randomized of parallels groups. The study is designed to look for differences in the oxidative stress level among healthy patients receiving 2 different oxygen co...
During the induction period of general anesthesia, surgical patients are inevitably experienced a short period of apnea for endotracheal intubation or other airway manipulation. In order t...
The anesthesia machine "Draeger Perseus A 500" has an integrated software which calculates the predicted course of the concentration of oxygen and the volatile anesthetics sevoflurane and ...
Millions of patients undergo upper GI endoscopy in the United States each year. A large number of these patients have anesthesia to assist with their comfort during the procedure. The majo...
Intraoperative oxygen management is poorly understood. It was hypothesized that potentially preventable hyperoxemia and substantial oxygen exposure would be common during general anesthesia.
Pulse oximetry-derived oxygen saturation is typically >97% in normoxia and hyperoxia, limiting its clinical use. The new Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi), a relative indicator of the partial pressure of oxy...
Apneic oxygenation via the oral route using a buccal device extends the safe apnea time in most but not all obese patients. Apneic oxygenation techniques are most effective when tracheal oxygen concen...
History of anesthesia can be learned through formal didactic lectures, discussions, tours, audiovisual media, general anesthesia textbooks, anesthesia history texts, and by popular literature.
Neuraxial anesthesia is often viewed as superior to general anesthesia but may delay discharge. Comparisons do not typically use multimodal analgesics and nerve blockade. Combining nerve blockade with...
Inhalation anesthesia where the gases exhaled by the patient are rebreathed as some carbon dioxide is simultaneously removed and anesthetic gas and oxygen are added so that no anesthetic escapes into the room. Closed-circuit anesthesia is used especially with explosive anesthetics to prevent fires where electrical sparking from instruments is possible.
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.
The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)
Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.
