Penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) is an open-sky surgery that fundamentally has not changed for more than 100 years. Because conventional PKP is associated with the potential for the developm...
Most of the ophthalmic procedures are performed under local anesthesia as the patient is often elderly and with diseases. This may increase the risk of morbidity and mortality under genera...
This prospective randomized is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hernia repairs using local anesthesia compared with those using general anesthesia for patients with incarcer...
A randomized clinical trial to test the efficacy of EMLA cream (lidocaine 2.5% and prilocaine 2.5% in a ratio of 1:1 by weight) in comparison to the established local anesthesia (LA) proto...
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...
As the evidence supporting the notion that regional anesthesia improves patient outcomes grows, utilization of regional anesthesia techniques has similarly increased. Best care should not be restricte...
The aim of this study is to provide a contemporary medicolegal analysis of claims brought against anesthesiologists in the United States for events occurring in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU).
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)
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.
Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.
An opioid analgesic that is used as an adjunct in anesthesia, in balanced anesthesia, and as a primary anesthetic agent.
