Anesthesia Clinical Trials

A listing of Anesthesia medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (31) clinical trials

This study is being done because it is not known whether these two types of anesthesia lead to the same outcome or if one type of anesthesia is better for people who are undergoing surgery to treat hip fractures. We will specifically explore how well you are walking after your ...

Phase N/A

Laryngoscope Prototype Tested Against the Traditional Macintosh Blade

Intubation of patiens can be difficult, even impossible. It can result in different complications as damage to the teeth, lacerations of the mucosa, bleeding, fractures/luxations, hypoxia, hypercapnia, reflex bradycardia and in worst case braindamage and death. The more difficult the intubation is the more frequent complicationrate. We believe to have ...

Phase N/A

Phenylephrine in Spinal Anesthesia in Preeclamptic Patients

The study will be approved by the Northwestern University Institutional Review Board. Eligible women admitted to the Labor and Delivery Unit of Prentice Women's Hospital will be approached for study participation immediately after the routine preanesthetic evaluation. This usually occurs shortly after admission to the Labor and Delivery Unit. Women ...

Phase N/A

Spinal Versus General Anesthesia for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy under regional anesthesia alone has been reported only occasionally in the past; all these reports included patients unfit to receive general anesthesia, mainly patients with severe chronic obstructive airway disease. Regional anesthesia has been used for laparoscopy in fit patients almost exclusively in combination with general anesthesia, in ...

Phase N/A

Postanesthesia Cognitive Recovery and Neuropsychologic Complications

The rationale for this study comparing different types of anesthetic maintenance is based on the amount of systemic metabolic breakdown and the low repartion rates within the various tissues and the very rapid elimination of desflurane in respect to the other common inhalation and intravenous anesthetics as possible factors in ...

Phase N/A

The Pediatric Anesthesia Quality Improvement Project

The Study is designed to collect information about adverse events that occur in children undergoing anesthesia in participating hospitals. Demographic information will be collected on all anesthestics. An analysis of each adverse event will be performed and entered into the database. From this information we will devise strategies to prevent ...

Phase N/A

Perioperative Lidocaine or Epidural Anesthesia on Outcomes in Complex Spine Surgery

Participants undergoing spine surgery will be randomized into one of three groups;General 1) Anesthesia and postoperative Patient Controlled Analgesia and placebo IV infusion,2) General Anesthesia plus perioperative intravenous lidocaine infusion and post operative patient controlled analgesia or 3) General Anesthesia plus postoperative epidural analgesia plus placebo IV infusion. After surgery, ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia for Pars Plana Vitrectomy (PPV) With Insulin Needle

The author wants to see the effect of short needle in patients undergoing retinal surgery.

Phase N/A

Muscle Relaxants and Post-Anesthesia Complications

Muscle relaxants are integral part of modern anesthesia. They optimize intubating conditions, reduce laryngeal trauma and improve operating conditions. Drawback is a possible pharmacological (muscle relaxing) effect of these drugs beyond the end of the operation (i.e. post-operative residual curarization: PORC). PORC is a relevant complication after general anesthesia. Reportedly ...

Phase N/A

Local Anaesthesia and Remifentanil Sedation Versus Total Intravenous Anaesthesia for Hysteroscopic Surgery in an Ambulatory Surgery Department.

The purpose of this study is to compare a new method: the combination of conscious sedation with remifentanil (a shortlasting opioid drug) and local anaesthesia, with the traditional general anaesthesia for hysteroscopic surgery. The primary outcomes are: the time spent in the operation room, the time to full mobilisation postoperatively ...
