Adjunctive non-pharmacological analgesia for invasive medical procedures: a randomised trial
BACKGROUND Non-pharmacological behavioural adjuncts have been suggested as efficient safe means in reducing discomfort and adverse effects during medical procedures. We tested this assumption for… Expand
A Multicenter Study of Bispectral Electroencephalogram Analysis for Monitoring Anesthetic Effect
Bispectral analysis (BIS) of the electroencephalogram (EEG) has been shown in retrospective studies to predict whether patients will move in response to skin incision.This prospective multicenter… Expand
Adjunctive self-hypnotic relaxation for outpatient medical procedures: A prospective randomized trial with women undergoing large core breast biopsy

Bone metastases from renal cell carcinoma: preoperative embolization.
PURPOSE To assess the effect of preoperative embolization on blood loss during surgical repair of bone metastases from renal cell carcinoma and provide long-term follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS… Expand
Reduction of Isoflurane Minimal Alveolar Concentration by Remifentanil
Background Remifentanil is a new micro‐specific opioid receptor agonist currently under investigation. The interaction between opioids and volatile anesthetics is complex. Defining this interaction… Expand
Prediction of Movement Using Bispectral Electroencephalographic Analysis During Propofol/Alfentanil or Isoflurane/Alfentanil Anesthesia
Conventional electroencephalographic (EEG) analysis techniques do not use the phase information from the Fourier analysis.This study used a new technique of EEG analysis, bispectral analysis, which… Expand

&NA; Patients are often prepared for procedural discomforts with descriptions of pain or undesirable experiences. This practice is thought to be compassionate and helpful, but there is little data on… Expand
Large-core breast biopsy: abnormal salivary cortisol profiles associated with uncertainty of diagnosis.
PURPOSE To determine whether uncertainty of the diagnosis after large-core breast biopsy (LCBB) adversely affects biochemical stress levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was institutional… Expand
