Gabapentin to Improve Patient Tolerance in Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

2014-07-24 14:01:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Pregabalin Premedication for Conscious Sedation

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...

Responsiveness Index Versus the RASS Based Method for Adjusting Sedation in Critically Ill Patients

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. ...

Conscious sedation with midazolam intravenously for a patient with Parkinson's disease and unpredictable chorea-like dyskinesia.

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...

If problems arise during palliative sedation: considerations in sedation in the terminal phase.

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...

Sedation: A Primer for Pediatricians.

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...

Sedation scales: Do they capture the concept of opioid-induced sedation?

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.

Electroencephalographic Arousal Patterns Under Dexmedetomidine Sedation.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
