STUDY OBJECTIVE To investigate whether a continuous infusion of low-dose esmolol results in an opioid-sparing effect during surgery. DESIGN Randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical comparison study. SETTING Operating room of a university hospital. PATIENTS 56 ASA physical status 1 and 2 patients, aged 20 to 60 years, undergoing(More)
Although intravenous acetaminophen is commonly used for the management of postoperative pain, very limited evidence supports the usefulness of preoperative administration. The aim of this study was to determine the analgesic effect of preoperative acetaminophen on opioid consumption, pain scores, and side effects in patients receiving an elective abdominal(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of a vapocoolant spray and an eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA) cream in reducing pain during needle electromyography examination. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. SETTING Physical medicine and rehabilitation department of a university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Adults who underwent needle electromyography(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the optimal dose of esmolol in combination with nicardipine in effectively blocking undesirable cardiovascular responses during rapid-sequence induction. DESIGN Prospective, randomized clinical comparison study. SETTING Operating room of a university hospital. PATIENTS 200 ASA physical status 1 and 2 patients requiring(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the effects of ethyl chloride and placebo sprays for reducing pain induced by needle electromyography and changes in parameters of the motor unit action potential during needle electromyography of the upper extremity. DESIGN Sixty patients were randomized into the ethyl chloride or placebo spray groups. In(More)
A 23-year-old male underwent a left internal jugular vein catheterization during extended surgery for treatment of multiple fractures due to a traffic accident. Although the catheterization was performed under ultrasound (US) guidance, iatrogenic perforation of the central vein and pleura occurred. The catheter was removed, and the perforated site was(More)
BACKGROUND It is known that pain hypersensitivity can be induced at a body part remote from a surgical site (tertiary hyperalgesia), leading to patient discomfort. Nevertheless, no reported study to date has investigated methods to attenuate such tertiary hyperalgesia. Ketamine is known to modulate hyperalgesia induced by central sensitization. Thus, we(More)
