Memory During Anesthesia: the Role of Stress Hormones

2014-08-27 03:12:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

1. To investigate whether the auditory stimulation causes changes in hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin) during general anesthesia.

2. To determine if there is a correlation between hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin) and dreams recall.

3. To investigate whether, in patients receiving auditory stimulation, there is a correlation between hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin), serum remifentanil concentration and detection of implicit memory.

4. To investigate the presence of primary auditory cortex activation (temporal lobe) in patients with implicit memory and in those with dreams recall using the EEG-ERP 128 channels GES300 EGI system.

Description

Patients from group A, during maintenance of anesthesia, at the time of trocar insertion, will listen (via MP3) a piece of one of two stories, "Puss in Boots" and "Pinocchio", each followed by four keywords. In group B, patients will be isolated from the sounds of the operating room using specific headphones.

Conventional laparoscopic appendectomy versus double-incision, three-port laparoscopic appendectomy: A 1-year randomized controlled trial.

Management of appendicitis has evolved dramatically in the last 120 years, from McBurney's large incision to minimally invasive laparoscopic appendectomy to hardly noticeable incisions with SILS. As...

Visceral obesity is a significant risk factor for incisional hernia after laparoscopic colorectal surgery: A single-center review.

Although laparoscopic surgery uses relatively small incisions, incisional hernia after surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence of incisional hernia and its risk factors are not well known. The...

Attempting a Laparoscopic Approach in Patients Undergoing Left-Sided Colorectal Surgery Who Have Had a Previous Laparotomy: Is it Feasible?

The feasibility of a laparoscopic approach in patients who have had a prior laparotomy (PL) remains controversial. We hypothesized that laparoscopic colorectal resection was safe and feasible in patie...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.

Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.

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.
