The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to evaluate the interaction of lidocaine infusion initiated and maintained during surgery, on propofol requirements during general anesthes...
This is a single center, randomized, controlled trial in which tunneled central line catheters will be placed in two distinct, select positions. The catheter tip position will then be foll...
Objectives: This study aims to assess if the use of general anesthesia (GA) or sedation (CS) in patients with acute stroke undergoing intra-arterial mechanical thrombectomy, leads to bett...
Comparing the changes of arterial anastomotic blood flow between general anesthesia alone and general anesthesia with epidural anesthesia in patients who undergoing free flap transposition...
The objective of this study is to use local topical anesthesia to numb the sensory input, captured by branches of the Trigeminal nerve found on the skin in and around the eye, to decrease ...
Brachial arterial catheters provide a more accurate reflection of central aortic arterial pressure compared to their radial counterparts. Although brachial arterial line complications are uncommon, we...
Use of spinal anesthesia (SA) in children may address concerns about potential neurocognitive effects of general anesthesia. We used near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to assess the effects of SA on ce...
There is limited evidence showing that elevated arterial blood pressure in surgical patients may be associated with increased perioperative risk; however, cardiovascular instability frequently occurs ...
Current evidences show that regional anesthesia is associated with decreased risk of complications after major surgery. However, the effects of combined regional-general anesthesia remain controversia...
Although regional anesthesia for ambulatory patients is feasible, effective and recommended, general anesthesia, analgosedation and monitored anesthesia care traditionally play a major role in the amb...
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)
The period of emergence from general anesthesia, where different elements of consciousness return at different rates.
A barbiturate that is administered intravenously for the production of complete anesthesia of short duration, for the induction of general anesthesia, or for inducing a hypnotic state. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p919)
A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.
