The aim of the study is to assess the accuracy of a new paradigm in measuring the level of nociception during lumbar surgery. The paradigm is based the measurement of the baroreflex in response to noxious stimuli in anesthetized patients.
The study aims at exploring the changes in the baroreflex induced by 3 noxious stimulation in anesthetized patients: tracheal intubation, tetanic stimulus, and surgical incision. Patients are randomly assigned to one of 2 groups: remifentanil-2 or remifentanil-4, corresponding to the target effect site concentration of this drug delivered through a TCI system. Other drugs included propofol and cisatracurium.
The paradigm exploring the baroreflex collects information continuously recorded of the RR intervals and the changes in systolic arterial pressure, before and during noxious stimuli. The hypothesis is that this paradigm explores nociception as the group with smaller doses in remifentanil will have more cardiovascular reactions in response to noxious stimuli.

The aim of this study is to compare the accuracy of the changes in CVI in response to a standardized noxious stimulus during various targeted pseudo-steady-state concentrations of remifent...
The objective of this study is to compare intraoperative and recovery parameters in patients who receive two different dose combinations of propofol and remifentanil in patients undergoing...
This study will examine whether the combination of two anaesthetic medications, propofol and remifentanil, is suitable for short duration surgical procedures, providing a shorter recovery ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether using ultra-low dose naloxone, an opioid antagonist, has the potential to block remifentanil-induced hyperalgesia and tolerance following s...
Sevoflurane is widely and frequently used in pediatric anesthesia due to its non-irritating airway properties, rapid induction and emergence. However, it is associated with emergence agita...
To survey (a) the frequency of the use of patient-controlled analgesic remifentanil-PCA during labour in the Netherlands; (b) considerations by obstetricians whether or not to offer remifentanil-PCA; ...
To provide optimal conditions for neurophysiological monitoring and rapid awakening, remifentanil is commonly used during pediatric spinal surgery. However, remifentanil may induce hyperalgesia and in...
Smooth emergence or cough prevention is a clinically important concern in patients undergoing laryngomicroscopic surgery (LMS). The purpose of this study was to estimate the effective concentration of...
Patient-controlled analgesia using remifentanil (remifentanil PCA) has been used as a new form of pain relief during labour since soon after its release on the market. Reduction in pain scores lasts f...
Propofol and remifentanil are commonly combined during total intravenous anesthesia. The impact of remifentanil in this relationship is poorly quantified in children. Derivation of an integrated pharm...
A condition of persistent pain and discomfort in the BACK and the LEG following lumbar surgery, often seen in patients enrolled in pain centers.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (usually L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to provide motor innervation to extensors of the thigh and sensory innervation to parts of the thigh, lower leg, and foot, and to the hip and knee joints.
A long flat muscle that extends along the whole length of both sides of the abdomen. It flexes the vertebral column, particularly the lumbar portion; it also tenses the anterior abdominal wall and assists in compressing the abdominal contents. It is frequently the site of hematomas. In reconstructive surgery it is often used for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. (From Gray's Anatomy, 30th American ed, p491)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
