Functional Microarray Augmentation of Skin Treatment With Lidocaine

2014-08-27 03:12:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether co-application of a functional microarray of needles (FMA) speeds the rate at which topical anesthesia is provided. A secondary goal is to determine whether the depth of anesthesia is enhanced.

Description

The study's primary goal is to determine whether co-application of a functional microarray of needles (FMA) speeds the rate at which topical anesthesia is provided by lidocaine gel 4% (LG4). A secondary goal is to determine whether the depth of anesthesia is enhanced.

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.

A principle that learning is facilitated when the learner receives immediate evaluation of learning performance. The concept also hypothesizes that learning is facilitated when the learner is promptly informed whether a response is correct, and, if incorrect, of the direction of error.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.

Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.

The passive movement of molecules exceeding the rate expected by simple diffusion. No energy is expended in the process. It is achieved by the introduction of passively diffusing molecules to an enviroment or path that is more favorable to the movement of those molecules. Examples of facilitated diffusion are passive transport of hydrophilic substances across a lipid membrane through hydrophilic pores that traverse the membrane, and the sliding of a DNA BINDING PROTEIN along a strand of DNA.
