Dreaming under anaesthesia was investigated in a prospective study of 120 day case paediatric patients, aged 5-17 years, who underwent a variety of surgical procedures. Patients were anaesthetised using the 'Liverpool technique' of paediatric anaesthesia (nitrous oxide-oxygen-relaxant). No patient reported awareness, but 23 of 120 patients (19%) reported(More)
We wished to determine if the addition of a small dose of morphine (0.05 mg.kg-1) to a caudal solution of 0.25% bupivacaine could extend the duration of analgesia after major reconstructive penile surgery and also to measure the systemic absorption of morphine after caudal injection. Thirty children undergoing reconstructive penile surgery received a caudal(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional laboratory study. OBJECTIVE To determine whether individuals with spinal pain and those who have undergone spinal surgery have difficulty discriminating small movement differences using a spinal proprioception test for active flexion movements. BACKGROUND Structures contributing to proprioception may be affected during disc(More)
Discrimination of differences between small lumbar flexion movements made when standing may differ depending on whether vision is available. Dependence on general vision during trunk movements may be increased following surgery, in which an intervertebral disc is replaced with a prosthetic disc. This study investigated whether the availability of vision(More)
Target-controlled total intravenous anaesthesia using propofol and remifentanil was compared with inhalational anaesthesia using sevoflurane and alfentanil in patients undergoing daycase urological surgery. Seventy-one patients were randomly allocated to receive either a target-controlled infusion of an admixture of propofol and remifentanil (125 microg of(More)
