The influence of drug interaction and protein variants on the binding disposition of ropivacaine to alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) was examined. The subjects were five patients who received epidural infusion of ropivacaine for 24-54 h in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting followed by drug combination therapy, and 10 healthy volunteers. The(More)
Local anesthetic toxicity produced by an inadvertent IV injection is attenuated by the pulmonary uptake of local anesthetics. We compared the pulmonary uptake of ropivacaine and levobupivacaine after a bolus injection in rabbits. Sixteen anesthetized rabbits were randomly assigned to either a ropivacaine group or a levobupivacaine group. A bolus containing(More)
BACKGROUND In Japanese local hospitals there are not many persons who can give speedy and exact medical treatment in emergency. We investigated a role of anesthesiologists in the education of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in local hospitals. METHODS A total of 3 doctors and 30 nurses completed the questionnaire about the education of CPR after(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether a lateral wedge insole reduces the external knee adduction moment during slope walking. Twenty young, healthy subjects participated in this study. Subjects walked up and down a slope using 2 different insoles: a control flat insole and a 7° lateral wedge insole. A three-dimensional motion analysis system(More)
This study evaluated the effect of foot progression angle on the reduction in knee adduction moment caused by a lateral wedged insole during walking. Twenty healthy, young volunteers walked 10 m at their comfortable velocity wearing a lateral wedged insole or control flat insole in 3 foot progression angle conditions: natural, toe-out, and toe-in.
