BACKGROUND Dexamethasone has been studied as an effective adjuvant to prolong the analgesia duration of local anesthetics in peripheral nerve block. However, the route of action for dexamethasone and its potential neurotoxicity are still unclear. METHODS A mouse sciatic nerve block model was used. The sciatic nerve was injected with 60ul of combinations(More)
The evaluation of vibration sensation is a problem which has large individual differences. In order to clarify the relationship between posture and psychological response, human sensation to whole-body vibration (from 2 to 11 Hz) in sitting and lying postures was evaluated by the semantic differential method, and the influences of posture on the evaluation(More)
We present a system for the interactive simulation of ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks using a Microsoft Kinect®. The system performs motion tracking of both the ultrasound probe and the nerve block needle. Software generates synthetic ultrasound images from previously captured ultrasound images. Details of the software elements in the system are(More)
BACKGROUND Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is effective in reducing stroke risk in selected patient groups. The ideal anesthetic technique remains controversial in light of literature between general anesthesia (GA) and regional anesthesia (RA) for CEA. METHODS We studied the NSQIP data from 2005 to 2012. There were 32,718 patients receiving general(More)
