Objective: To compare the hemodynamic, nausea and vomiting with small dose bupivacaine-fentanyl spinal anesthetic versus a conventional dose of spinal bupivacaine in parturients undergoing cesarean section. Methodology: Forty patients aged 17-35 years old which underwent cesarean section were randomized into two groups. Group-A received spinal anesthesia(More)
UNLABELLED Nasal ala pressure sores are among complications of nasogastric tube in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The severity of the injury is usually minor and easily ignored. However, the complication could be easily avoided. This is a case of nasal ala sore after the placement of nasal enteral tube in a pediatric intensive care unit in our(More)
PURPOSE To compare two different doses of propofol for laryngeal mask airway (LMA) insertion in children undergoing out-patient surgeries. BACKGROUND Insertion of LMA just after anesthesia induction is facilitated using propofol. However, the optimal dose of this drug not determined yet as heavy doses may lead to severe complications, whereas lower doses(More)
Adenotonsillectomy has a high incidence of postoperative pain. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of either ketamine or fentanyl for postoperative pain relief in children following adenotonsillectomy. Sixty children aged 3-12 years, scheduled for adenotonsillectomy, were enrolled in this randomized,(More)
Objective: Surgical stress stimulates the release of catecholamine and cortisol. Both of which have anti-insulin action resulting in an increase of plasma glucose concentration. The most common regional block in pediatric age group is caudal epidural analgesia. The aim of this study was to compare the stress response following pre and post surgical caudal(More)
BACKGROUND We compared the analgesic effects of caudal and ilioinguinal-iliohypogastric nerve block using bupivacaine-clonidine performed in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair. The ilioinguinal-iliohypogastric nerve block provides excellent pain relief for operations on the inguinal region, including emergency procedures (e.g. strangulated inguinal(More)
BACKGROUND Inguinal hernia is a common disease in preterm infants necessitating surgical repair. Despite the increased risk of postoperative apnea in preterm infants, the procedure was conventionally performed under general anesthesia. Recently, regional anesthesia approaches, including spinal and caudal blocks have been proposed as safe and efficient(More)
The induction dose of propofol is higher in younger children (2.9 mg/kg for infants younger than 2 years) than in older children (2.2 mg/kg for children 6-12 years of age). A modest reduction in systolic blood pressure often accompanies bolus administration. The major concern with propofol is the potential for propofol infusion syndrome (lactic acidosis,(More)
PURPOSE A well-functioning caudal block is an excellent adjunct to general anesthesia, but misplaced injection results in poor analgesia as well as possibility of serious morbidity. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of leg traction on success rate of caudal block in lateral position in children. METHODS Two hundred(More)
BACKGROUND Adenotonsillectomy is a common otolaryngology surgery. Nausea and vomiting are the most common complications of this procedure with a prevalence ranging from 49% to 73 %. OBJECTIVES Our aim was to evaluate the effects of short time fasting protocol on decreasing postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting, and initiation of oral feeding after(More)
