The hypotheses are that in the experimental group, in comparison to the control group, participants will show lower levels of pain, less pain interference in their activities, less attitudinal barriers, and less pain catastrophizing.
A pilot-RCT is privileged to assess the preliminary effects of the intervention on the following outcomes: pain intensity, analgesic consumption, pain interference, barriers and pain catastrophizing.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)

Blood transfusion is related to worse outcomes and the triggers for red blood cells transfusion are not well defined in cardiac surgery. Retrospective studies in cardiac surgery do not sho...
Describe the proportion of patients who underwent cardiac surgery in France and benefiting from a monitoring cardiac output, describe the use of positive inotropic and vasoactive agents fo...
Mortality and morbidity remain high after non-cardiac surgery. Known risk factors include age, high ASA grade and emergency surgery. Point-of-care focused cardiac ultrasound may elucidate ...
Patients undergoing stenting procedures, or cardiac or non-cardiac surgery could develop myocardial damage as testified by cardiac troponin release. Sevoflurane (volatile anesthetic), rou...
Dexmedetomidine has been shown to decrease cardiac complications in adults undergoing cardiac surgery. Results from clinical trials of dexmedetomidine on outcomes following paediatric cardiac surgery ...
Severe postoperative complications can affect cardiac surgery patients. Levosimendan is a novel calcium sensitizer commonly administered after cardiac surgery. However, the patient benefits are contro...
The development of significant TR long after left-sided valve surgery is not uncommon and is closely associated with a poor prognosis. Traditional open-heart tricuspid procedures after previous cardia...
The anaesthesiological management of patients scheduled for cardiac surgery has been refined distinctively over the last decade due to different reasons. The continuing growth of the elderly patient p...
A survival benefit for obese patients has been observed in various medical and surgical populations. We examined the effect of obesity on outcomes after cardiac surgery from a large national database.
A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.
Surgery performed on the heart.
Solutions which, upon administration, will temporarily arrest cardiac activity. They are used in the performance of heart surgery.
A beta-2 agonist catecholamine that has cardiac stimulant action without evoking vasoconstriction or tachycardia. It is proposed as a cardiotonic after myocardial infarction or open heart surgery.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
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. ...
