OBJECTIVE Low concentrations of superoxide (O(2)(-)) constitute a portion of atmosphere negative ions in the form of O(2)-(H(2)O)(n), which has been reported to have a stimulatory effect on superoxide dismutase activity. If superoxide dismutase is activated by inspired negative ions containing O(2)(-), aerobic metabolism could be improved. To test this(More)
We experienced anaphylactic shock after introduction of the general anesthesia twice in the same patient. After the first incidence of anaphylactic shock, we judged that the allergen was a latex. For the second time we planned the latex free environment, but the anaphylactic shock occurred again. As a result of the investigation, it turned out that the(More)
Purpose. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether urinary trypsin inhibitor excretion differs between general anesthesia (GA) and epidural block during general anesthesia (EPI) in lower abdominal surgery. Methods. Sixteen women undergoing abdominal total hysterectomy were assigned to the GA and EPI groups. The GA group received propofol induction and(More)
After approval of the Institutional Review Committee, adult surgical patients less than 65 years old classified as ASA physical status I or II, who received combined epidural block and general anesthesia for lower abdominal gynecological or gastrointestinal surgery, were enrolled in this study. All patients gave informed consent. With the patient in the(More)
We studied the effect of intratracheally infused bile acids on the respiratory and circulatory systems in anesthetized dogs. The bile acids used were cholic acid, deoxycholic acid, taurocholic acid, glycocholic acid and taurodeoxycholic acid. They were diluted to 1% or 10% with normal saline solution and 1 ml.kg-1 was infused into the trachea through an(More)
We experienced a case of the abortive malignant hyperthermia (MH) that had developed during operation. The patient was a 14-year-old girl, and plastic surgery was scheduled under general anesthesia. Serum creatine kinase (CK) levels were high with 505 IU x l(-1) at the preoperative examination. General anesthesia was induced with propofol and vecuronium(More)
We evaluated a double indicator dilution method of lung water for studying the effect of intratracheally infused bile acids on the respiratory system in anesthetized dogs. Deoxycholic acid and taurodeoxycholic acid were diluted to 1% or 10% with normal saline solution, and 1 ml.kg-1 was infused into the trachea through an endotracheal tube under controlled(More)
We examined the effect of acupuncture or electro-acupuncture on circulatory parameters by use of a non-invasive procedure in 10 healthy male adult volunteers. Circulatory parameters measured were systolic blood pressure, pulse rate, total peripheral resistance and cardiac output. Acupuncture and electro-acupuncture significantly increased total peripheral(More)
BACKGROUND Combined epidural-propofol anesthesia with use of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) via the nose has been used routinely in our operating theaters. The purpose of this report was to present a survey of this anesthesia. MATERIAL/METHODS 265 adult patients undergoing lower extremity or lower abdominal gynecological surgery during(More)
