Coronary CT Angiography in Acute Chest Pain is a Cost Effective Risk Stratification Strategy

Background and Significance Standard-of-care risk-stratification algorithm (SOC): In the past 20 years since Goldman et al4 described a clinical algorithm to predict MI in ED patients, the clinical ability to decrease the false-negative rate for myocardial events has not improved. Hence, the emergency physician (EP) is compelled to admit to ...

Ketamine Sedation in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

- Mechanical ventilation is widely used in critically ill patients. Sedation is used in most instances to alleviate symptoms of pain and distress. It usually consists of an association of opiates and benzodiazepines. - In some instances, pain and agitation persist despite this combined sedation regimen. In such cases, the ...

The Role of CGRPand Nociceptin in Migraine

The release of the neuropeptide calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is thought to play a causative role in migraine. Nociceptin immunoreactivity and ORL-1 mRNA have been detected in human trigeminal ganglia where it was co-localized with CGRP. It may play a role in migraine pathogenesis. We are collecting the blood samples ...

Bispectral Index as an Analgesia Monitoring in Severely Ill Patient: Effect of Remifentanyl

Pain is difficult to estimate in ICU because most of the patients are sedated. Bispectral index could be helpful in detecting this pain in ICU patients. Remifentanil is a morphinomimetic product with short half life that could be interesting for short nociceptive stimuli, as bronchoalveolar lavage. The purpose of this ...

A Study of the Effectiveness of Virtual Reality Relaxation Combined With Patient-Controlled Analgesia (PCA) Morphine for Those Undergoing Burn Dressing Changes

Pain associated with burn dressing changes does not arise purely from a physical source; it is also commonly influenced by psychological factors. The anticipation that accompanies a dressing change has the potential to set up fear and heightened anxiety as the patient is aware that at a predetermined time other ...

Benefit of Lidocaine Perfusion in Cancer Related Visceral Pain Resistant to Morphinics

This study will evaluate the benefit of lidocaine perfusion in cancer related visceral pain resistant to morphinics. It is an efficacy study in adults and children and a randomized prospective study.

Effects of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA)-Receptor Antagonism on Hyperalgesia Opioid Use and Pain After Radical Prostatectomy

The immediate postoperative period is associated with spontaneous pain and hyperalgesia, i.e., increased pain response (both intensity and duration) to normally painful stimuli following tissue injury or damage. The development and maintenance of secondary hyperalgesia depend on complex plastic changes in spinal cord dorsal horn cells after peripheral injury or ...

Pain Perception in Alzheimer's Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine response to pain in Alzheimer's disease.We plan to study the effect of diffuse noxious inhibitory controls(counterirritation phenomenon)and the autonomic nervous system reaction(reflected by the heart rate) in Alzheimer's disease. The study's hypothesis is that pain perception and autonomic nervous system reaction are ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Escitalopram vs. Reboxetine on Gastro-intestinal Sensitivity of Patients With Major Depressive Disorder

Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) commonly have many gastrointestinal complaints. Gastrointestinal pain is classified into 2 categories: visceral and somatic pain. The main aim of this study is to compare somatic and visceral sensitivity between healthy people and pateints with MDD. These two sensitivities will be assessed by the ...

Phase

Intra-articularInjection of Botulinum Toxin Type

Chronic knee pain unresponsive to oral medications and intra-articular corticosteroids and viscosupplements is an important treatment problem, especially for the young, very old and those with complex medical problems that preclude joint reconstructive surgery. We hypothesized that intra-articular botulinum toxin could provide important joint pain relief in these patients. This ...
