OBJECTIVE To report on clinical experience using dichotic multiple-stimulus auditory steady-state responses (ASSRs) as an objective technique to estimate frequency-specific hearing thresholds in hearing-impaired infants. METHODS A comparison was made between the click-evoked auditory brainstem response (ABR), auditory steady-state responses and behavioral(More)
In this study we investigated whether the novel reversal drug, sugammadex, is equally effective at reversing rocuronium-induced neuromuscular block (NMB) in patients under propofol or sevoflurane maintenance anesthesia. After receiving propofol for induction, patients were randomized to propofol (n = 21) or sevoflurane (n = 21). Rocuronium 0.6 mg/kg was(More)
OBJECTIVES Free fatty acid (FFA) oxidation is depressed in the postischaemic stunned myocardium and recovers in parallel with the normalization of contractile performance. Assuming a causal role for this metabolic disturbance in the pathogenesis of stunning, we questioned whether exogenous administration of high dose triglycerides during reperfusion of(More)
We compared midazolam with thiopental both in association with saline, fentanyl and fentanyl with droperidol for induction of anesthesia. Our data show that the administration of fentanyl or fentanyl and droperidol before midazolam improves the induction to reach almost the quality of a thiopental induction. No difference in cardiocirculatory effects(More)
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a neuropathic pain condition that is characterized by vasomotor, sensory, sudomotor, and motor symptoms. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been successfully utilized for the treatment of pain refractory to conventional therapies. We present a case of a previously highly functioning 54-year-old female who developed a(More)
