Pediatric Laryngeal Dimensions: An Age-Based Analysis
BACKGROUND: In children, the cricoid is considered the narrowest portion of the “funnel-shaped” airway. Growth and development lead to a transition to the more cylindrical adult airway. A number ofExpand

Analysis of acute pain scores and skin conductance measurements in infants.
BACKGROUND Skin conductance (SC) has been previously used to measure acute post-operative pain in adults and older children (>1year old).We have investigated the ability of SC to predict the severityExpand

Phenylephrine infusion for spinal-induced hypotension in elective cesarean delivery: Does preload make a difference?
Background and Aims: Patients undergoing elective cesarean delivery (CD) have a high-risk of spinal-induced hypotension (SIH). We hypothesized that a colloid preload would further reduce SIH whenExpand
