Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: Its Etiology, Treatment, and Prevention
Patients at high risk for postoperative emesis should receive special considerations with respect to the prophylactic use of antiemetic drugs, as suggested in a recent editorial. Expand
Ketamine--its pharmacology and therapeutic uses.

Dexmedetomidine Infusion During Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery: The Effect on Recovery Outcome Variables
Adjunctive use of an intraoperative Dex infusion decreased fentanyl use, antiemetic therapy, and the length of stay in the PACU, but it failed to facilitate late recovery or improve the patients’ overall quality of recovery. Expand
Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Propofol Infusions during General Anesthesia
This clinical study demonstrates the feasibility of performing pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analyses when complex infusion and bolus regimens are used for administering iv anesthetics. Expand
Pharmacology of Ketamine Isomers in Surgical Patients
Differences in anesthetic potencies, intraoperative effects, analgesia, physical side effects, incidences and types of postanesthetic emergence phenomena, and anesthetic preferences among the optical isomers of ketamine are disclosed. Expand
The Comparative Effects of Methohexital, Propofol, and Etomidate for Electroconvulsive Therapy
Etomidate may be a useful alternative to propofol and methohexital for ECT therapy and recovery of cognitive functions was prolonged after etomidate because of the longer period of seizure activity. Expand
Comparative pharmacology of the ketamine isomers. Studies in volunteers.
It is concluded that the more potent S(+) isomer of ketamine was associated with a more rapid recovery of psychomotor skills than the currently used racemic mixture. Expand
Effect of the Intensity of Transcutaneous Acupoint Electrical Stimulation on the Postoperative Analgesic Requirement
It is concluded that high-TAES produced a significant decrease in the PCA opioid requirement and opioid-related side effects after low intraabdominal surgery. Expand
The Effect of Location of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation on Postoperative Opioid Analgesic Requirement: Acupoint Versus Nonacupoint Stimulation
It is demonstrated that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation applied at the dermatomal level of the skin incision is as effective as Zusanli acupoint stimulation, and both were more effective than stimulation at a nonacupoint (shoulder) location. Expand
