- Comparison of hemodynamic and anesthetic effects of hyperbaric bupivacaine and tetracaine in spinal anesthesia. Nishiyama, Tomoki; Komatsu, Kyoko; Hanaoka, Kazuo // Journal of Anesthesia;2003, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p218
Purpose. To compare the anesthetic and hemodynamic effects and the predictive factor of anesthesia level of commonly used preparations of hyperbaric bupivacaine and tetracaine in spinal anesthesia. Methods. Two hundred patients aged 40 to 75 years with ASA physical status I or II were...
- Hemodynamic and bispectral index responses to tracheal intubation during isoflurane or sevoflurane anesthesia. Nakayama, Masayasu; Kanaya, Noriaki; Edanaga, Mitsutaka; Namiki, Akiyoshi // Journal of Anesthesia;2003, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p223
Purpose. The effects of volatile anesthetics on change in the bispectral index (BIS) due to tracheal intubation are unclear. We investigated hemodynamic and BIS responses to intubation during isoflurane or sevoflurane anesthesia. Methods. After obtaining Institutional Review Board approval and...
- When it comes to opiates, just say NO. Pasternak, Gavril W. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Nov2007, Vol. 117 Issue 11, p3185
Repeated use of opiate analgesic drugs such as morphine for the relief of chronic pain may result in the development of opiate tolerance and dependence, leading to a narrowing of the drug's therapeutic index and increased side effects. Previous preclinical work has shown that interruption of a...
- Fast-tracking anesthetic techniques. White, Paul F. // Revista Mexicana de Anestesiologia;abr-jun2007 supplement, Vol. 30, pS30
The article focuses on fast-tracking patient recovery after surgery through the delivery of safe and effective anesthetic with minimal side effects. The issue of facilitating the recovery process following anesthesia has led to debates over the best anesthetic technique and type of anesthetic...
- Development of pharmacophoric maps for cardiovascular depression by intravenous anaesthetic agents: comparison with maps for immobilizing activity. Sear, J. W. // BJA: The British Journal of Anaesthesia;Jun2010, Vol. 104 Issue 6, p684
Background: The molecular basis of the cardiovascular effects of i.v. anaesthetics was investigated using comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA).
- propofol. // Davis's Drug Guide for Nurses, 9th edition;2005, p886
Focuses on the general anesthetic agent propofol. Indications; Pharmacokinetics; Adverse reactions and side effects.
- Influence of three gaseous anaesthetics on gastro-oesophageal reflux in dogs. // Veterinary Record: Journal of the British Veterinary Association;3/3/2007, Vol. 160 Issue 9, p296
An abstract of the article "Influence of halothane, isoflurane, and sevoflurane on gastroesophageal reflex during anesthesia in dogs," by D. V. Wilson, D. T. Boruta and A. T. Evans. The authors examined the effects of three gaseous anesthetics on gastro-oesophageal reflux in dogs. According to...
- Tandem Pore Domain K Channels An Important Site of Volatile Anesthetic Action. Yost, C. Spencer // Current Drug Targets;Sep2000, Vol. 1 Issue 2, p207
Despite over 150 years of clinical use, the mechanism and molecular elements by which volatile anesthetics produce unconsciousness are not established. Although enhanced activity of inhibitory neurotransmitter systems (GABAA) and depression of excitatory neurotransmitter systems (NMDA) probably...
- New options for office-based anesthesia. Lucas, Beverly D. // Patient Care;2/15/1999, Vol. 33 Issue 3, p20
Reports on the availability of additional anesthetic methods for a wide range of medical office procedures in the United States. Includes lidocaine; Tetracaine, adrenaline and cocaine combination; Eutectic mixture of local anesthetics.
