Assessment of Spread of Transversus Abdominis Plane Block

2014-08-27 03:17:33 | BioPortfolio


For the purpose of assessing the spread of the local anaesthetic after injecting it between abdominal muscles on both sides, the investigators will test if the patient can feel a change in the perception of cold and warm, as well as being pricked with a blunt needle. The investigators will also take several blood samples, together with routine samples, to measure the concentration of the local anesthetic in the blood.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Muscles forming the ABDOMINAL WALL including RECTUS ABDOMINIS, external and internal oblique muscles, transversus abdominis, and quadratus abdominis. (from Stedman, 25th ed)

Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.

Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.

Imaging methods that result in sharp images of objects located on a chosen plane and blurred images located above or below the plane.

A malocclusion in which maxillary incisor and canine teeth project over the mandiblar teeth excessively. The overlap is measured perpendicular to the occlusal plane and is also called vertical overlap. When the overlap is measured parallel to the occlusal plane it is referred to as overjet.
