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.


Mental Visualization as a Learning Tool in Anesthesia

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefit of adding mental visualization to a training program in medical education. Undergraduate medical students will be randomized before participating in a training program on airway management during rapid sequence induction. In the control group, participants will receive traditional teaching including …

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Guided Peripheral IV Insertion

Study objective The purpose of this research study is to compare 2 established peripheral IV insertion techniques (traditional vs ultrasound guided) in order to develop an algorithmic approach to peripheral IV insertion. Patient characteristics, medical history and co-morbidities, in addition to a pre-insertion physical exam vein assessment, will allow for …

Phase N/A

Electroacupuncture Improves Wrist Functionality and Pain

Electroacupuncture improves pain and wrist functionality in patients undergoing rehabilitation therapy after distal radius fracture Distal radius fracture is extremely common, and it is about 10% of all fractures in the human body. Therefore, the distal radius is the most frequently fractured part of the upper limbs of the human …

Phase N/A

Effect of Opioid Free Anesthetic on Post-Operative Opioid Consumption After Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery

This is a prospective, single-center, single-blinded, randomized controlled trial comparing the effect of an opioid-free general anesthetic versus a traditional anesthetic with a restricted quantity of opioid on postoperative opioid consumption following laparoscopic bariatric surgery. The study population will be composed of 196 subjects undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery at Virginia …


Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Total Knee Replacement (TKR) With a Transitional Pain Service

Patients will be randomized to one of two groups: one group will receive a PAI, IPACK and single-shot adductor canal block; one group will receive PAI, IPACK and continuous adductor canal block catheter.

Phase N/A

Drug Concentration and Volume on Adequate Labor Analgesia With PIEB

Neuraxial labor analgesia is performed by the administration of a local anesthetic/opioid mixture in the epidural space. The delivery method is a combination of continuous infusion, provider-administered boluses and patient-administered boluses (patient controlled epidural analgesia [PCEA]) via epidural catheter. Pain during the first stage of labor is primarily due to …
