This study aimed to see if the addition of clonidine to morphine when given by patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) would improve analgesia beyond the first 12 h after surgery. METHODS Sixty patients undergoing lower abdominal surgery were recruited into a randomized double(More)
1. The pharmacological properties of 5-HT3 receptor recognition sites labelled with [3H]-(S)-zacopride, [3H]-LY278,584, [3H]-granisetron and [3H]-GR67330 in membranes prepared from the rat entorhinal cortex were investigated to assess the presence of cooperativity within the 5-HT3 receptor complex. 2. In rat entorhinal cortex homogenates,(More)
The aim of this paper is to examine some of the challenges to be addressed in measuring the success of teaching computing ethics. It draws on the early stages of an action research project to determine, firstly, to what extent teaching intervention succeeds in helping students develop ethical frameworks ; and secondly to evaluate different teaching methods(More)
BACKGROUND Complications of an inadequate haemodynamic state are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery. Unfortunately, commonly used methods to assess haemodynamic status are not well documented with respect to outcome. The aim of this study was to investigate Sv(O2) as a prognostic marker for short- and long-term outcome in a(More)
