We investigated the relationship between electroencephalogram (EEG) activity and autonomic nervous system function using spectral analyses of EEG and heart rate variability (HRV) in healthy subjects during sleep. Eleven subjects were enrolled in this study. From EEG, the spectral edge frequencies (SEFs including SEF50, SEF90 and SEF95) were calculated. From(More)
We examined fish community structures in floodplain backwaters in the Kiso River, Central Japan, in an uncommon drought year. Nine floodplain backwaters with varying levels of flood inundation frequency were surveyed for winter fish communities, and measured for local environmental variables in summer and winter periods. The winter fish community was better(More)
The aim of this study was to reveal the effect of anesthesiologist's mental workload during induction of general anesthesia. Twenty-two participants were categorized into anesthesiology residents (RA group, n = 13) and board certified anesthesiologists (CA group, n = 9). Subjects participated in three simulated scenarios (scenario A: baseline, scenario B:(More)
Regional anesthesia, especially epidural anesthesia, rarely causes involuntary movement Here we present a case of a patient who demonstrated myoclonus-like involuntary movement of the lower limbs during continuous infusion of ropivacaine, fentanyl, and droperidol through the thoracic epidural catheter. This movement disappeared when the epidural infusion(More)
A "cannot-ventilate, cannot-intubate" situation is critical. In difficult airway management, transtracheal jet ventilation (TTJV) has been recommended as an invasive procedure, but specialized equipment is required. However, the influence of upper airway resistance (UAR) during TTJV has not been clarified. The aim of this study was to compare TTJV using a(More)
We report a case showing supranuclear vertical gaze palsy and convergence nystagmus caused by a unilateral lesion of the rostral interstitial nucleus of the medial longitudinal fasciculus (riMLF). The patient was a 54-year-old female with mitral stenosis and regurgitation and atrial fibrillation, who suddenly developed vertigo and double vision. She was(More)
