UNLABELLED Epidural morphine produces analgesia with a high incidence of side effects that include pruritus, nausea, and vomiting. This study investigated whether epidural or i.v. droperidol could alleviate these symptoms. In a prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled trial, 97 pregnant women undergoing cesarean section were randomly assigned to(More)
We performed a prospective, double-blinded study in 20 patients undergoing gynecologic surgery with lower abdominal incision, to investigate characteristics of intrathecal hyperbaric levobupivacaine compared with isobaric levobupivacaine. We randomly assigned them to receive 3 mL of either isobaric or hyperbaric 0.42% levobupivacaine intrathecally. We found(More)
We conclude that the intravenous PCA method is acceptable, easy to use, does not depend on the patients' level of education, and is safe for Thai patients. The average pain scores at 48 hours postoperation of the PCA group was significantly lower than for the conventional and the I.M. groups. Satisfaction was quite difficult to assess. Thai culture might(More)
UNLABELLED To investigate the effectiveness of intravenous lornoxicam and morphine with the preemptive effects of ropivacaine local skin infiltration and peritoneal instillation in reducing postoperative pain after transabdominal hysterectomy, a randomized, double blinded, placebo-controlled study was done in 88 patients undergoing transabdominal(More)
We conclude that the intravenous PCA method is a cost-effective technique. Although the PCA device is expensive, the cost-effectiveness analysis should give explicit figures for physicians and the hospital administrators to decide whether they should use the PCA instead of the conventional method.
OBJECTIVE To compare the results of 0.2 mg and 0.3 mg of spinal morphine in patients with post-thoracotomy pain. DESIGN A prospective, randomized, double-blind study. SETTING A university hospital and a tertiary referral center. PARTICIPANTS Forty patients undergoing thoracotomy for lung resection. INTERVENTIONS Spinal morphine: 0.2 mg or 0.3 mg. (More)
This prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled trial was performed to evaluate the antiemetic effectiveness and side effects of adding droperidol to morphine delivered via a patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) device in 94 women undergoing transabdominal hysterectomy with a standardized anesthetic regimen. They were randomly allocated to receive(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the postoperative analgesic effect and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) after using epidural low-dose morphine-soaked microfibrillar collagen sponge (MMCS), as compared with placebo. MATERIAL AND METHOD A prospective randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study was performed on patients under-going single-level posterior(More)
The administration of morphine intravenously in the Postanesthesia Care Unit (PACU) was practiced in many parts of the world, but not routinely done in Thailand. This prospective randomized controlled trial was performed to reassure Thai personnel that this practice was safe, to find the optimum dose of morphine for administration in the PACU, and to find(More)
Transillumination of the soft tissue of the neck using a lighted stylet (lightwand) is an effective and safe intubating technique in experienced hands. The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness and safety of this device in intubating the trachea of elective surgical patients by non-experienced hands. One hundred and fifty, paralysed,(More)
