The Influence of the Femoral Nerve Block on Quadriceps Strength

2014-07-23 21:09:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Total knee replacement is a frequent procedure in Québec's hospitals and the muscular strength of the quadriceps is the best indicator of the patient's functional recovery post surgery. Thus, the importance of the patient's recovery leads to the evaluation of the influence of the femoral nerve block on the muscle strength.

The purpose of the study is to compare the short term and long term recuperation of the quadriceps' motor strength of after a total knee arthroplasty using different types of analgesics such as the continuous femoral nerve block, the single dose femoral nerve block and the systemic analgesic, a patient controlled analgesic pump.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of multiple drugs administered to the same patient, most commonly seen in elderly patients. It includes also the administration of excessive medication. Since in the United States most drugs are dispensed as single-agent formulations, polypharmacy, though using many drugs administered to the same patient, must be differentiated from DRUG COMBINATIONS, single preparations containing two or more drugs as a fixed dose, and from DRUG THERAPY, COMBINATION, two or more drugs administered separately for a combined effect. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.

Drug formulations or delivery systems intended to discourage the abuse of CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES. These may include physical barriers to prevent chewing or crushing the drug; chemical barriers that prevent extraction of psychoactive ingredients; agonist-antagonist combinations to reduce euphoria associated with abuse; aversion, where controlled substances are combined with others that will produce an unpleasant effect if the patient manipulates the dosage form or exceeds the recommended dose; delivery systems that are resistant to abuse such as implants; or combinations of these methods.

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Relief of PAIN, without loss of CONSCIOUSNESS, through ANALGESIC AGENTS administered by the patients. It has been used successfully to control POSTOPERATIVE PAIN, during OBSTETRIC LABOR, after BURNS, and in TERMINAL CARE. The choice of agent, dose, and lockout interval greatly influence effectiveness. The potential for overdose can be minimized by combining small bolus doses with a mandatory interval between successive doses (lockout interval).
