Prediction of Post-dural Puncture Headache in Parturients Undergoing Elective Caesarean Section

PDPH is described as severe "searing and spreading like hot metal" distributed over the occipital and frontal areas radiating to the neck and shoulders. 90% of headache will occur within three days of the procedure, and 66% within the first 48 hours. The PDPH rarely develops between 5 and 14 ...

Phase N/A

COMparison of Portable Fingertip Versus Conventional Pulse OximeteRs Trial

The purpose of this prospective, quantitative study is to compare the agreement between the measured arterial oxygen saturation levels using a portable fingertip versus a conventional bedside pulse oximeter in adult surgical patients, presenting for elective and emergency surgery to Groote Schuur Hospital over a four-week period. Adult surgical patients, ...

Phase N/A

Automated Control of Mechanical Ventilation During General Anaesthesia

The "Automated control of mechanical ventilation during general anesthesia study (AVAS study) is an international investigator-initiated bicentric observational study investigating the application of Smart Vent Control (SVC) during general anesthesia. The main objective of this study is to describe the application of SVC and to assess its safety and efficacy.

Phase N/A

Effects of Hypotensive Anesthesia on Thiol Disulphide Balance

This study will be performed prospectively with 80 participants with ASA 1-2, aged 18-60 years, undergoing hypotensive anesthesia in the operation of the septoplasty in Recep Tayyip Erdoan University Medical Faculty Training and Research Hospital. Participants with uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cerebrovascular disease, cogulopathy, morbid obesity (BMI 35) and renal ...

Phase N/A

A Review of "Anesthesia Stat!" in the Pediatric Operating Room

The goal of this study is to further characterize these events, determine the incidence in the operating room, unmask associated issues to improve vigilance, and to look and see if there are possibly improvements to be made in the investigators care of all pediatric patients to further reduce the incidence ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Variants and Perioperative Morbidity and Mortality

Background Anesthesia and surgery are related to unwanted adverse events, side effects and postoperative discomfort. Whereas severe complications like cardiovascular events are rare, postoperative side effects like nausea and vomiting, pain, long-lasting pain and pain-related interference of daily activities are frequent. The question arises which patient is at specific risk ...

Phase N/A

Pharmacokinetics of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care

The purpose of this study is to characterize the PK ( Pharmacokinetics) of understudied drugs administered to children per standard of care as prescribed by their treating caregiver. This will be accomplished by the collection of biological samples during the time of drug administration per standard of care as prescribed ...

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

Comparison on Succinylcholine Onset Time Assessed by Train of Four Stimulation Versus Clinical Judgment During Rapid Sequence Induction of Anesthesia

Succinylcholine is a myorelaxant agent often used during rapid sequence induction for patients who need to undergo general anesthesia but who are at risk of pulmonary aspiration of gastric content. Whereas other myorelaxant agents are monitored with train of four stimulation to assess onset and duration, few anesthesiologists use train ...

Phase N/A

Gastroesophageal Function During Anesthesia

Background: General anesthesia may predispose patients to aspiration of gastroesophageal contents because of depression of protective reflexes during loss of consciousness. The laparoscopy would increase the intra-abdominal pressure, which is regarded as a predisposing factor of gastroesophageal reflux during the anesthesia. The lower esophageal sphincter is the important physiological mechanisms ...
