Effects of sevoflurane and isoflurane on cardiac and coronary dynamics in chronically instrumented dogs.
TLDR
The authors conclude that, except for heart rate, the effects of sevoflurane on cardiac function and coronary blood flow are almost identical to those induced by isoflURane in the chronically instrumented dog. Expand
Continuous lumbar plexus block for postoperative pain control after total hip arthroplasty. A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Continuous lumbar plexus block is a more effective analgesic modality than is a continuous femoral block or patient-controlled intravenous administration of hydromorphone alone during physical therapy following primary unilateral total hip arthroplasty. Expand
The Safety and Efficacy of a Fentanyl Patient-Controlled Transdermal System for Acute Postoperative Analgesia: A Multicenter, Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
This study showed that a fentanyl HCl PCTS 40 &mgr;g for PCA was superior to placebo and well tolerated for the control of moderate to severe postoperative pain for up to 24 h after major surgery. Expand
Risk Factors and Injury Associated With Falls in Elderly Hospitalized Patients in a Community Hospital
TLDR
Age and the patient condition before and during hospitalization resulted as the most important determinants of falls in hospitalized patients. Expand
Continuous femoral blocks improve recovery and outcome of patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty.
TLDR
CFI represents a better alternative than PCA or epidural analgesia for postoperative pain management and immediate rehabilitation after total knee arthroplasty and allowed better performance on continuous passive motion. Expand
Analgesia after total knee arthroplasty: is continuous sciatic blockade needed in addition to continuous femoral blockade?
TLDR
The experience suggests that, in most patients, adequate analgesia after TKA cannot be achieved with CFI alone and that the addition of CSI renders a significant improvement in analgesia. Expand
The use of intravenous infusion or single dose of low-dose ketamine for postoperative analgesia: a review of the current literature.
TLDR
While the evidence lends support to using low-dose i.v. infusion of ketamine in the management of perioperative pain, its optimal dose and regimen remain to be determined. Expand
Single-dose aprepitant vs ondansetron for the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting: a randomized, double-blind phase III trial in patients undergoing open abdominal surgery.
TLDR
Aprepitant was significantly more effective than ondansetron for preventing vomiting at 24 and 48 h after surgery, and in reducing nausea severity in the first 48H after surgery. Expand
Interscalene brachial plexus anesthesia and analgesia for open shoulder surgery: a randomized, double-blinded comparison between levobupivacaine and ropivacaine.
TLDR
This prospective, randomized, double-blinded study demonstrates that 30 mL of levobupivacaine 0.5% induces an interscalene brachial plexus anesthesia of similar onset and intensity as the one produced by the same volume and concentration of ropvacaine. Expand
Ultrasound-Guided Paravertebral Block Using an Intercostal Approach
TLDR
An ultrasound-guided technique of continuous bilateral paravertebral block using an intercostal approach in 12 patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery is described and the median number of dermatomes blocked after the initial bolus was 5. Expand
