OBJECTIVES In this study, we evaluated the effect of oral clonidine as premedication on blood loss in lumbar spine fusion surgery under anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this(More)
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: Liver surgery and perioperative care of patients with hepatic dysfunction is still moving toward better safety. Anesthesiologists play their role with judicious selection of anesthetic medications. Ischemic liver injury occurs in a variety of clinical settings such as trauma, shock, and(More)
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: Interventions to reduce systemic inflammation by regional an-esthesiologists may improve patients' outcome in the future. We as regional anesthesiologists often use peripheral nerve blocks as a modality for intraoperative analgesia, but it is not well understood whether regional anesthesia(More)
BACKGROUND Intentional lowering of blood pressure helps to produce a desirably clean surgical field. Many drugs can be used to induce a hypotensive state, but due to their high potency and rapid effect, drugs that more easily and safely control the induction of hypotension are desirable. OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of premedication with oral(More)
BACKGROUND Paradoxical reactions to benzodiazepines including restlessness, anxiety and sometimes violent behavior sometimes occur. Most of the known predicting factors of disinhibitory reactions such as age, gender, genetic or the psychological background are not modifiable. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of rate of midazolam(More)
BACKGROUND Several methods for assessment of severity of pain have been proposed but all of them are subjective. OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the association concerning changes in electrical resistance (ER) between two acupuncture points and severity of postoperative pain in order to define an objective measurement of pain. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a(More)
BACKGROUND Although controversial, many studies have shown effectiveness of colloid loading as a substitute for crystalloids on reducing the incidence of hypotension in spinal anesthesia. This study was conducted to compare the effects of three intravenous fluid regimens on hemodynamic changes following spinal anesthesia in cesarean section. The regimens(More)
INTRODUCTION Haloperidol has an established role in nausea and vomiting prophylaxis and possible effects on multiple aspects of postoperative recovery including pain and sedation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of low-dose intraoperative intravenous haloperidol on quality of recovery (QoR) and pain control after general anesthesia and(More)

However, the low efficacy, potential complications of medications and the intolerance of some patients for oral route due to nausea and vomiting establish a difficult situation in some migraine patients. This report describes a dramatic pain relief(More)
BACKGROUND Endotracheal Tube Cuff Pressure (ETCP) should be kept in the range of 20 - 30 cm H2O. Earlier studies suggested that ETCP assessment by palpation of pilot balloon results in overinflation or underinflation and subsequent complications such as tracheal wall damage and aspiration. OBJECTIVES The current study aimed to evaluate the effect of an in(More)
