Ambulatory Anesthesia and Light Therapy

We previously evidenced in both animal models and patients that a short duration ambulatory anesthesia impacts the circadian rest-activity biological rhythm, at least during the first 3 days. The light is the main, natural synchronisateur, of the biological cerebral clock, and is used as therapeutics in chronic disturbances of the ...

Phase N/A

Physostigmine After General Anesthesia

The researchers wish to investigate the use of physostigmine in the elderly patients (age > 60 yrs, ASA I-III) in the postoperative recovery-phase after general anesthesia. Apart from the beneficial effects for the patient, the lessened amount of time in the PACU will release caregiving resources and thereby increase the ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Guided Arterial Line Placement in Long Axis Versus Short Axis in Pediatric Patients

An Arterial line is an intraoperative monitor that is frequently placed in the pediatric population. Due to their smaller anatomy and more compliant skin, arterial lines can be more difficult to insert in the pediatric population than in adults. Additionally, lower perfusion pressure and larger subcutaneous adipose tissue can make ...

Inhalational Anesthesia and Precipitation of Dementia: is There a Link?

Many elderly patients undergoing surgical procedures already have impaired cognitive (memory/concentration) status. Patients with pre-existing cognitive impairment, or dementia, may benefit from modified anesthesia techniques. It is estimated that one in eight people age 65 and older has Alzheimer's disease. More so, nearly half of people that are 85 years ...

Phase N/A

Administration of Dexmedetomidine Guided by Entropy/SPI Reduce

Dexmedetomidine, a selective alpha2-adrenergic agonist is known to reduce propofol and opioid requirements due to its sedative and analgesic properties. However, until now, there has been studies based on indirect measures such as hemodynamics. Entropy shows to quantify the level of consciousness by EEG and Surgical pleth index(SPI) allows to ...

Phase N/A

Development of a Methodology to Design a High Order Sliding Mode Controller for Drug Dosage

The aim of this observational study is to create a database to extract feature of fast-acting drugs that can be monitor in real time to design control strategies based on high order sliding mode controller to create a robust drug infusion system. The observed drugs in this study are fast ...

Phase N/A

Protective Ventilation With Higher Versus Lower PEEP During General Anesthesia for Surgery in Obese Patients

Postoperative respiratory failure, particularly after surgery under general anesthesia, adds to the morbidity and mortality of surgical patients. Anesthesiologists inconsistently use positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and recruitment maneuvers in the hope that this may improve oxygenation and protect against postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs), especially in obese patients. While anesthesiologists tend ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Anesthesia on Post-operative Delirium in Elderly Patients Undergoing Hip Fracture Surgery

Postoperative delirium (POD) is an acute confusional state associated with changes in consciousness, arousal level and cognitive status. Elderly patients with hip fractures have the high incidence of delirium. The high risk factor of delirium include: Age 65 years or older, cognitive impairment/dementia, current hip fracture, severe illness and so ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia in Patients With Mitochondrial Disease

Study subjects undergoing a routine medical care non-emergent procedure will be randomized into three different groups to receive one of the following anesthetic agents; Sevoflurane, Propofol or Dexmedetomidine. The primary outcome of this pilot study is to evaluate and compare the incidence of adverse events in mitochondrial patients undergoing a ...

Phase N/A

Focused Cardiac and Lung Ultrasound in Anesthesia/Critical Care - The Role of Self-directed Simulation-assisted Training Compared to a Traditional Supervised Approach

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a self-directed and simulation-based lung ultrasound (LUS) and focused cardiac ultrasound (FCU) curriculum is efficacious on anesthesia trainees' image acquisition skills and diagnostic acumen. The investigators hypothesize that a self-directed and ultrasound-assisted LUS and FCU curriculum that includes video lectures, online ...
