The standard approach to sedation in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) involves the use of benzodiazepines and opiates to achieve a moderate depth of sedation. There is data to suggest supplementing this regimen with gabapentin may lead to reduced pain, higher patient satisfaction and lower opiate requirements. The investigators are conducting a clinical trial to study this hypothesis.

Conscious sedation is usually required during flexible bronchoscopy. Sedation should be done without causing respiratory depression or loss of consciousness. The present study was designed...
This is a randomized controlled trial investigating the effect of general anesthesia versus conscious sedation on operative times in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacem...
Colonoscopy for investigation of lower gastrointestinal complaints or for colon cancer screening is one of the more frequent procedures performed by the Divisions of General Surgery and Ga...
This randomized double-blinded control trial aims to compare the pain levels experienced by the women using the standard conscious sedation and those who had transcutaneous electrical nerv...
Systematic evaluation of pain, agitation and delirium in ICU-patients is recommended and deep sedation should be avoided. Sedation is still monitored with clinical assessments, like RASS. ...
Oral surgery can be difficult in patients with chorea-like dyskinesia, which is common in those on long-term levodopa medication for Parkinson's disease, and we know of no conclusive evidence to indic...
Palliative sedation is increasingly being utilised when patients are close to death. Despite clear guidelines, its implementation is often problematic. In this clinical lesson we describe two patients...
There has been an increasing use of pediatric procedural sedation and analgesia over the past 20 years, along with numerous medical and technological developments. Sedation can facilitate the smooth c...
The purpose of this study was to explore the concept of opioid-induced sedation and how nurses define and measure sedation in the hospital setting.
The depth of dexmedetomidine-induced sedation is difficult to assess without arousing the patient. We evaluated frontal electroencephalogram (EEG) as an objective measure of dexmedetomidine-induced se...
A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)
A phenothiazine derivative with histamine H1-blocking, antimuscarinic, and sedative properties. It is used as an antiallergic, in pruritus, for motion sickness and sedation, and also in animals.
A histamine H1 antagonist used in allergic reactions, hay fever, rhinitis, urticaria, and asthma. It has also been used in veterinary applications. One of the most widely used of the classical antihistaminics, it generally causes less drowsiness and sedation than PROMETHAZINE.
Drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused but respond purposely following repeated painful stimulation. The ability to independently maintain ventilatory function may be impaired. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)
A short-acting barbiturate that is effective as a sedative and hypnotic (but not as an anti-anxiety) agent and is usually given orally. It is prescribed more frequently for sleep induction than for sedation but, like similar agents, may lose its effectiveness by the second week of continued administration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p236)
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
