    The aim of the present study was to develop and validate an objective index for nociception level (NoL) of patients under general anesthesia, based on a combination of multiple physiological parameters. Twenty-five patients scheduled for elective surgery were enrolled. For clinical reference of...

    Continuous respiratory assessment is especially important during post-operative care following extubation. Respiratory depression and subsequent adverse outcomes can arise due to opioid administration and/or residual anesthetics. A non-invasive respiratory volume monitor (RVM) has been developed...

    It is recommended that the period of fasting before elective surgery should be shortened to facilitate a rapid recovery by preventing catabolism. We examined the effects of a short period of fasting on metabolism by performing indirect calorimetry (IC) under general anesthesia. A prospective...

    Background: The 18-week target to treatment government initiative was implemented in 2004. In order for this to work, patients need to accept operative dates provided, otherwise the pathway will fail. Aim: The aim of this prospective study was to identify the earliest time patients would accept...

    Background MAC (minimum alveolar concentration of an inhaled anaesthetic) and CP50i (minimum plasma concentration of i.v. anaesthetics) are well-established measures to compare potencies of anaesthetics. The underlying clinical endpoint immobility reflects mainly effects of anaesthetics on the...

    Background: Use of blood conservation techniques in elective surgery reduces the risk of infection and transfusion reactions that result from using allogeneic blood products. We examined the transfusion practice and blood conservation strategies for elective orthopedic procedures in 19 Canadian...
