BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE The purposes of the Thai Anesthesia Incidents Study (THAI Study) of anesthetic outcomes were to survey patients, surgical, anesthetic profiles and determine factors related to adverse events. MATERIAL AND METHOD A prospective descriptive study of occurrence screening was conducted in 20 hospitals comprised of 7 university, 4(More)
UNLABELLED In this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study, we compared the prophylactic efficacy of nalbuphine and ondansetron for the prevention of intrathecal morphine-induced pruritus after cesarean delivery. Two-hundred-forty parturients were randomly allocated into four groups. The N-4 group, O-4 group, O-8 group, and placebo group received IV 4(More)
BACKGROUND As a site of the Thai Anesthesia Incidents Study (THAI Study) of anesthetic adverse outcome, the authors continued the institutional data collection to determine the incidence and factors related to 24-hour perioperative cardiac arrest in geriatric patients (aged 65 years and over) representing a Thai university hospital. MATERIAL AND METHOD(More)
The modified Mallampati score is used to predict difficult tracheal intubation. We have conducted a meta-analysis of published studies to evaluate the Mallampati score as a prognostic test. A total of 55 studies involving 177 088 patients were included after comprehensive electronic and manual searches. The pooled estimates from the meta-analyses were(More)
BACKGROUND Ondansetron is effective for the treatment of intrathecal morphine-induced pruritus. There is evidence that kappa-opioid receptor agonists have antipruritic activity. Pentazocine is an agonist of kappa-opioid receptors and partial agonist at mu-opioid receptors. We therefore performed a randomized, double-blind trial to compare the efficacy of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of dexmedetomidine on hemodynamic responses to DLT intubation compared to placebo and to assess the adverse effects related to dexmedetomidine. Sixty patients were randomly allocated to receive 0.7  μ g/kg dexmedetomidine (n = 30) or normal saline (n = 30) 10 minutes before general anesthesia. Systolic(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective cohort study was approved by the ethical committee of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, Thailand. We reviewed the data of 44,339 patients receiving(More)
BACKGROUND Hypotension or bradycardia after spinal anesthesia for cesarean section remain common and are serious complications. The current study evaluated factors associated to the incidences of hypotension or bradycardia in this context. MATERIAL AND METHOD A prospective cross sectional study from November 1, 2004 to July 31, 2005 was conducted on 722(More)
OBJECTIVES Analyze the clinical course, management, outcome, and contributing factors of perioperative allergic reactions in the Thai Anesthesia Incident Monitoring Study (Thai AIMS). MATERIAL AND METHOD A prospective descriptive multicenter study was conducted in 51 hospitals across Thailand Voluntary, anonymous reports of any adverse or undesirable(More)
PURPOSE Regional anesthesia has been shown to improve the clinically oriented outcome and many studies investigating the use of regional anesthesia have incorporated patient satisfaction measurements. This study was undertaken to find the factors related to patient satisfaction after spinal anesthesia which is the most frequent regional anesthesia(More)
