Bier's Block Versus Mini-bier's Block in Patients Undergoing Hand Surgery

Introduction Several ways of anesthesia can be used to perform hand surgery, being general anesthesia, intravenous regional anesthesia as well as locoregional anesthesia. Locoregional anesthesia and intravenous regional anesthesia are often performed since patients can be discharged from the hospital more rapidly. A conventional Bier's block is performed using a ...

Phase N/A

Gravity Flow Technique to Validate Proper Location of Epidural Needle Tip on Obese Parturients

The purpose of this study is to quantify the reliability of the gravity flow technique to accurately validate the position of the epidural needle tip when performing lumbar epidural analgesia/anesthesia for childbirth (vaginal and cesarean delivery) in women with a BMI greater than 30 kg/m2.

Phase N/A

Outcomes of an Intraoperative Bispectral Index Monitor

The BIS monitor is an adhesive sensor that is applied to the forehead to monitor EEG waves. In adult and pediatric studies, the BIS monitor has been shown to decrease time to emergence, decrease volatile anesthesia requirement, decrease recovery time and in some cases, decrease post-operative morbidity (REFS). The effect ...

Phase N/A

Does Melatonin Affect Anesthetic MAC (Minimum Alveolar Concentration)?

Depth of anesthesia will be monitored, both with a standard sleep mask applied and without, in each subject using standard electroencephalogram (EEG) readings via forehead leads and Masimo Sedline 2.0 4-lead EEG monitors. OR Subjects: Patients will be induced in a standard fashion using intravenous (IV) anesthetics. A continuous administration ...

Phase N/A

Assessing the Cortical Response to Noxious and Auditory Stimuli Using Near Infrared Spectroscopy in Subjects Under General Anesthesia

The primary aim is to utilize near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in patients under general anesthesia to measure changes in brain blood flow in the bilateral somatosensory cortices and the prefrontal cortices in response to noxious stimulation.

Phase N/A

The Synergistic Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Propofol for Sedation for Pediatric Endoscopy

Both propofol and dexmedetomidine may be used to achieve adequate sedation conditions. Propofol has been described to produce successful conditions for completion of the intended study in almost 99% of the patients. However, in a study that reviewed outcomes when using propofol for almost 50,000 pediatric procedures, propofol was associated ...


Comparing Local Anesthetics for Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block During Abdominally-based Free Flap for Breast Reconstruction

This study will compare the efficiency of transversus abominus plane (TAP) block using liposomal bupivacaine versus plain bupivacaine that is administered in the operating room under ultrasound guidance prior to the in patients undergoing abdominally-based free flap breast reconstruction at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
