Review of prolonged local anesthetic action
This field promises a safe way to deliver local anesthetics for effect far beyond that of commercially available agents, with potential cost and health benefits for patients suffering chronic or postoperative pain. Expand
A survey of labour ward clinicians' knowledge of maternal cardiac arrest and resuscitation.
BACKGROUND Guidelines for the management of cardiac arrest during pregnancy exist but they are based on little research. The study hypothesis was that experienced medical clinicians who specialise inExpand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of the Efficacy and Respiratory Effects of Patient-Controlled Intravenous Remifentanil Analgesia and Patient-Controlled Epidural Analgesia in Laboring Women
IV remifENTanil is inferior to epidural analgesia for provision of labor analgesia; however, remifentanil does provide a satisfactory level of Labor analgesia. Expand
Long acting local anesthetic-polymer formulation to prolong the effect of analgesia.
The polymer poly(sebacic-co-ricinoleic acid) is a safe carrier for prolonged activity of bupivacaine for producing motor and sensory block when injected near the sciatic nerve. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder among hospital surgical physicians exposed to victims of terror: a prospective, controlled questionnaire survey.
Hospital physicians from surgical disciplines who were professionally exposed to victims of terror did not demonstrate a higher incidence of PTSD than their less exposed counterparts, and both groups had similar levels of exposure to terror outside work. Expand
Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Mode of Anesthesia for Cesarean Delivery
African American women had the highest odds of undergoing general anesthesia for cesarean delivery compared with Caucasian women, and it is uncertain whether this disparity exists in current obstetric practice. Expand
Maternal outcomes of term breech presentation delivery: impact of successful external cephalic version in a nationwide sample of delivery admissions in the United States
Overall a low proportion of women with breech presentation undergo successful external cephalic version, and it is associated with significant reduction in the frequency of cesarean delivery and a number of measures of maternal morbidity. Expand
The Accuracy of a Handheld Ultrasound Device for Neuraxial Depth and Landmark Assessment: A Prospective Cohort Trial
This study investigated the accuracy of a wireless handheld ultrasound with pattern recognition software that recognizes lumbar spine bony landmarks and measures depth to epidural space (Accuro, Rivanna Medical, Charlottesville, VA) and using the AU-identified insertion point resulted in successful epidural placement at first attempt in 87% of patients.

A3 adenosine receptors and mitogen-activated protein kinases in lung injury following in vivo reperfusion
The results suggest not only that enhancement of the ERK pathway may shift the balance between cell death and survival toward cell survival, but also that A3 agonists have potential as an effective therapy for ischemia/reperfusion-induced lung injury. Expand
