BACKGROUND Ephedrine, unlike phenylephrine, has a dose-related propensity to depress fetal pH during spinal anesthesia during cesarean section. A low arterial umbilical cord pH has a strong association with neonatal mortality and morbidity. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate influences of vasopressor change on Apgar scores and(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of a combination of ondansetron and dexamethasone with that of metoclopramide and dexamethasone for prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in gynecologic patients receiving fentanyl IV-patient controlled analgesia. METHODS One hundred patients were divided into two groups at(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to review incidence, indications, complications, and the anesthetic management of emergency obstetric hysterectomies. METHODS This was a retrospective study of the cases of emergency obstetric hysterectomies performed at the Woman's Hospital over a 3 year period between January 2008 and December 2010. The(More)
Background: Emergence agitation (EA) occurs frequently after nasal surgery. N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists and analgesics, such as fentanyl, have been shown to prevent EA. Nefopam inhibits the NMDA receptor and shows a potent analgesic effect. We investigated the effects of nefopam on EA in patients undergoing nasal surgery. Methods: In(More)
We performed a prospective, randomized, and double-blind study comparing the top-up effects of 2% lidocaine/100 microg fentanyl/epinephrine (n=31) and 2% lidocaine/saline/epinephrine (n=30) when extending an epidural labor analgesia using low-dose ropivacaine and fentanyl. Survival analysis for the sensory blocks to the T4 level showed no statistically(More)
BACKGROUND Hypotension remains a common clinical problem of spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery and phenylephrine is used as a vasopressor to address this. However, phenylephrine reduces maternal cardiac output (CO) due to reflex bradycardia. Glycopyrrolate is safe for the fetus, and increases heart rate (HR). Using a noninvasive measure of CO, we(More)
BACKGROUND The authors determined whether desflurane altered myocardial excitation-contraction coupling and electrophysiologic behavior in the same manner as isoflurane and sevoflurane. METHODS The effects of desflurane on isometric force in guinea pig ventricular papillary muscles were studied in modified standard and in 26 mM K(+) Tyrode solution with(More)
