Effect of the Intensity of Transcutaneous Acupoint Electrical Stimulation on the Postoperative Analgesic Requirement
It is concluded that high-TAES produced a significant decrease in the PCA opioid requirement and opioid-related side effects after low intraabdominal surgery. Expand
The Effect of Location of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation on Postoperative Opioid Analgesic Requirement: Acupoint Versus Nonacupoint Stimulation
It is demonstrated that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation applied at the dermatomal level of the skin incision is as effective as Zusanli acupoint stimulation, and both were more effective than stimulation at a nonacupoint (shoulder) location. Expand
The Recovery of Cognitive Function After General Anesthesia in Elderly Patients: A Comparison of Desflurane and Sevoflurane
In conclusion, desflurane is associated with a faster early recovery than sevoflurane after general anesthesia in elderly patients and recovery of cognitive function was similar after desFLurane and sev ofluran-based anesthesia. Expand
Recovery profile, costs, and patient satisfaction with propofol and sevoflurane for fast-track office-based anesthesia.
Compared with sevoflurane-N2O, use of propofol-N 2O for office-based anesthesia was associated with an improved recovery profile, greater patient satisfaction, and lower costs. Expand
Propacetamol Versus Ketorolac for Treatment of Acute Postoperative Pain After Total Hip or Knee Replacement
In conclusion, propacetamol (2 g IV) possesses a similar analgesic efficacy to ketorolac (15 or 30 mg IV) after total hip or knee replacement surgery. Expand
Fast-Track Office-Based Anesthesia: A Comparison of Propofol Versus Desflurane with Antiemetic Prophylaxis In Spontaneously Breathing Patients
Compared to propofol, maintenance of anesthesia with desflurane provided significantly better intraoperative conditions during office-based surgery and was associated with a faster early recovery and similar incidence of postoperative side effects. Expand
The Effect of GP683, an Adenosine Kinase Inhibitor, on the Desflurane Anesthetic Requirement in Dogs
An investigational drug that can increase the levels of an important endogenous substance in the body (adenosine) has been found to decrease the anesthetic requirement in dogs without producing adverse effects on the cardiovascular system. Expand
Pain relief after arthroscopic knee surgery: intravenous morphine, epidural morphine, and intra-articular morphine.
It is found that patients who received IV morphine requested more rescue analgesia than those who received either epidural or IA morphine, and intra-articular morphine may be the method of choice for pain relief after arthroscopic knee surgery. Expand
Use of propofol for office-based anesthesia: effect of nitrous oxide on recovery profile.
In outpatients undergoing office-based surgical procedures with prop ofol anesthesia, administration of 65% N2O decreased the anesthetic requirement without increasing PONV, and use of a propofol-N2O combination may be a cost-effective alternative to propofolin alone for office- based anesthesia. Expand
The Effect of Timing of Dolasetron Administration on its Efficacy as a Prophylactic Antiemetic in the Ambulatory Setting
Dolasetron 12.5 mg IV administered before the induction of anesthesia is as effective as dolasetrons given at the end of laparoscopy or at the start of anesthesia in preventing PONV after outpatient laparoscopic procedures. Expand
