Epidural Labor Analgesia and Infant Neurobehavior

2014-08-27 03:18:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Infant neurobehavior alteration is predictor of later intelligence development. Many factors would influence or are associated with infant neurobehavior, of which exist or appear during perinatal period. Neuraxial, especially epidural, analgesia to date is the most effective method in relieving labor pain. Although previous studies showed that opioid used in epidural analgesia for labor pain can affect newborn neurobehavior negatively in a dose-escalation associated manner, whether epidural analgesia itself would produce unpredictable effect on newborn neurobehavior is still unknown. Hereby the investigators designed this trial to investigate the hypothesis that epidural analgesia for labor pain control itself would not produce negative effect on infant neurobehavior.

Effect of Sufentanil and Ropivacaine

The investigators study the efficacy of epidural sufentanil/ropivacaine for analgesia labor in primiparas so as to decrease perinatal complications of analgesia labor.

Thoracic Paravertebral Block for Postoperative Analgesia After Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery.

The use of paravertebral catheters is a recommended technique to achieve postoperative analgesia after thoracic surgery. To date there is no consensus on which drug regime (local anestheti...

Effect of Adding Sufentanil to Epidural Ropivacaine on Perioperative Metabolic and Stress Responses in Combined General/Epidural Anaesthesia for Geriatric Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy

The purpose of this study is to compare metabolic and stress responses in combined general/epidural anesthesia in geriatric cancer patients.

Dose determination of sufentanil for intravenous patient-controlled analgesia with background infusion in abdominal surgeries: A random study.

Sufentanil has been widely used in epidural PCA, while its use in intravenous PCA has rarely been reported. Based on its use in target controlled infusion, we reckoned that the effect-site concentrati...

Ropivacaine Protects against Memory Impairment and Hippocampal Damage in a Rat Neurodegeneration Model.

Ropivacaine, a long-acting amide local anesthetic agent, has been demonstrated to inhibit glutamatergic transmission. Glutamate neurotoxicity plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of brain disorder...

Sufentanil Alleviates Intrathecal Lidocaine Induced Prolonged Sensory and Motor Impairments but not the Spinal Histological Injury in Rats.

Spinal anesthesia has evolved into a safe and widely accepted method of anesthesia. Synergy between opioids and local anesthetics further increases the quality of analgesia and decreases the dose requ...

Ropivacaine inhibits the migration of esophageal cancer cells via sodium-channel-independent but prenylation-dependent inhibition of Rac1/JNK/paxillin/FAK.

The direct anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects of local anesthetics have been well documented in various cancers. However, whether local anesthetics affect cancer metastasis and their underly...

Volume of ropivacaine 0.2% and common peroneal nerve block duration: a randomised, double-blind cohort trial in healthy volunteers.

The volume-duration relationship using low concentrations of ropivacaine for peripheral nerve blocks is unknown, even though low concentrations of ropivacaine are increasingly used clinically. We inve...
