Evaluation of Fever Occurring in Labor in Patients Receiving Epidural Anesthesia

Historically the diagnosis of chorioamnionitis (an infection of the membranes surrounding the fetus) for patients in labor has been made on the basis of multiple clinical variables such as maternal fever, fetal tachycardia, uterine tenderness, or foul smelling vaginal discharge. The diagnosis also takes into account a clinical picture consistent ...

Phase

Volatile Anesthetics in Cardiac Protection

Stenting procedures, cardiac and non-cardiac surgical procedures may carry a significant risk of cardiac damage ultimately leading to prolonged hospital stay and even a non-negligible periprocedural mortality rate. According to the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines all anesthetic techniques and drugs have known cardiac effects that should be ...

Phase

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 ...

Regional Anesthesia and Breast Cancer Recurrence

Surgery is the primary and most effective treatment of breast cancer, but residual disease in the form of scattered micrometastases and tumor cells are usually unavoidable. Whether minimal residual disease results in clinical metastases is a function of host defense and tumor survival and growth. At least three perioperative factors ...

Phase

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 ...

Use of Sedation and Local Anesthesia in Meatotomy: A Prospective Comparison Study

Background- Meatal stenosis requiring surgery occurs more often in circumcised than in uncircumcised boys, with an estimated rate of 7.3%. At our institute, meatotomy is usually performed under general anesthesia and penile block is routinely added after induction. Recently, several reports have described the performance of meatotomy as an office ...

Phase

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

Postoperative Analgesia by Epidural vs IV Ketamine Concurrent With Caudal Anesthesia in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery

After receiving consent inform from parents, 40 children scheduled for orthopedic surgeries will be randomized to one of two groups: epidural group and intravenous group, both will receive 1 mg kg-1 S(+)-ketamine. All patients will receive caudal block anesthesia with marcaine. Cardiovascular monitoring will be assessed during operation. Follow up ...

Phase

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 anesthetics. An analysis of each adverse event will be performed and entered into the database. From this information we will devise strategies to prevent ...
