This study was designed to examine the interactions between mivacurium and rocuronium or vecuronium when administered during a standardized anesthetic technique. Seventy healthy women undergoing abdominal hysterectomy procedures with a standardized thiopental-sufentanil-desflurane-nitrous oxide anesthetic technique were randomly assigned to one of seven(More)
UNLABELLED Because noise in the operating room has been alleged to interfere with the ability to sedate patients before surgery, we evaluated the effect of noise on the Bispectral index (BIS) value during propofol sedation. Thirty unpremedicated patients were studied before the start of surgery while receiving propofol sedation on two separate occasions(More)
UNLABELLED To determine the effects of plasma fentanyl concentrations on intraoperative propofol requirements, emergence from anesthesia, and relief of postoperative pain, we studied 60 ASA physical status I and II patients undergoing spine fusion. The patients were randomly assigned to four study groups according to the expected intraoperative plasma(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between clinical endpoints for induction of anesthesia and the electroencephalographic (EEG) bispectral index (BIS) and effect-site concentration (C(E)) values when using a target-controlled infusion (TCI) of either thiopental sodium or propofol, by hypothesizing that yawning may be a useful alternative to other(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Rats which have undergone spinal nerve ligation (SNL) display increases in the expression of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK 1/2) and cyclic AMP response element-binding (CREB) protein. The present study was designed to determine whether lidocaine has a beneficial effect on the treatment of neuropathic pain by analysing(More)
We aimed to compare fentanyl, remifentanil and dexmedetomidine with respect to hemodynamic stability, postoperative pain control and achievement of sedation at the postanesthetic care unit (PACU). In this randomized double-blind study, 90 consecutive total laparoscopic hysterectomy patients scheduled for elective surgery were randomly assigned to receive(More)
