Postoperative pain may be affected by general anaesthetics. The effect of propofol and sevoflurane on postoperative pain in chinese female patients has not been demonstrated before. This s...
Most researches revealed that volatile anesthetic sevoflurane has a more marked cardioprotective effect against ischemia compared with intravenous agent propofol.However, propofol has been...
To investigate the effect of sevoflurane and propofol on the concentrations of serum homocysteine and folic acid in children who received cochlear implant surgery.
Several methods have been proposed to improve intubating conditions and minimize sevoflurane induction time during sevoflurane induction in children. These include clonidine premedication,...
Blood loss in hepatobiliary surgery is correlated with an increase in postoperative complications (e.g. transfusion related lung injury and tumor recurrence) and reduced longterm survival....
In pediatric patients, anaesthesia induction is often performed with intravenous Propofol or Sevoflurane inhalation. Although epileptiform discharges have been observed during inductions with Sevoflur...
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Clusters of differentiation 39 and 73, enzymes expressed on the surface of regulatory T cells, promote cancer recurrence and metastasis by suppress...
Propofol and remifentanil are 2 useful drugs used in induced hypotensive anesthesia. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of these drugs on intraoperative blood loss, transfusion requi...
General anesthesia with sevoflurane is associated with an increased incidence of postoperative cognitive dysfunction. Previous studies have shown that sevoflurane anesthesia can affect the integrity a...
A randomised trial to compare the increase in intracranial pressure as correlated with the optic nerve sheath diameter during propofol versus sevoflurane-maintained anesthesia in robot-assisted laparoscopic pelvic surgery.
Robot-assisted surgery can cause raised intracranial pressures (ICP) due to steep trendelenburg position and pneumoperitoneum. The choice of anesthetic agents can influence the ICP, which can be measu...
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Loss of blood during a surgical procedure.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
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...
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. ...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
