Intrathecal methylprednisolone for intractable postherpetic neuralgia.
The intrathecal administration of methylprednisolone is an effective treatment for postherpetic neuralgia and with the extent of global pain relief, according to the results of this trial.
Comparative therapeutic evaluation of intrathecal versus epidural methylprednisolone for long-term analgesia in patients with intractable postherpetic neuralgia.
Cerebrospinal fluid interleukin 8 concentrations and the subsequent development of postherpetic neuralgia.
Preoperative Intradermal Acupuncture Reduces Postoperative Pain, Nausea and Vomiting, Analgesic Requirement, and Sympathoadrenal Responses
Preoperative insertion of intradermal needles reduces postoperative pain, the analgesic requirement, and opioid-related side effects after both upper and lower abdominal surgery.
Haemodynamic and electroencephalograph responses to intubation during induction with propofol or propofol/fentanyl
Fentanyl, 2 μg· kg−1iv, blunted the haemodynamic responses to intubation, but failed to attenuate the arousal of cerebral cortical activity in patients randomized to receive anaesthesia induction with propofol and fentanyl.

The neuropeptides orexin A and B evoke noradrenaline release from rat cerebrocortical slices and are compared with other sleep’–“wake‐related (excitatory) neurotransmitters; dopamine, glutamate, serotonin and histamine.
Smoking Decreases Alveolar Macrophage Function during Anesthesia and Surgery
Smoking was associated with macrophage aggregation but markedly reduced phagocytic and microbicidal activity—possibly because expression of proinflammatory cytokines was reduced in these patients.
Intraoperative Modulation of Alveolar Macrophage Function during Isoflurane and Propofol Anesthesia
Pulmonary immunologic function changed progressively during anesthesia and surgery, suggesting that pulmonary defenses are modulated by the type of anesthesia and by the duration ofesthesia and surgery.

The effect of variable doses of ketamine on the endpoints of hypnosis and processed EEG variables, e.g., bispectral index (BIS), 95% spectral edge frequency (SEF) and median frequency (MF) during propofol infusion, are studied.

The bispectral index and 95% spectral edge frequency did not change significantly in the N2O group, but increased significantly from 44.0 +/- 0.5 to 58.6 +/- 1.3 (P < 0.01), respectively, in the ketamine group.
