Dural Puncture Epidural Versus Epidural Anesthesia for Cesarean Delivery

The aim of this study is to compare the onset time of anesthesia between standard epidural and Dural Puncture Epidural (DPE) for cesarean delivery. The study will hypothesize that a DPE technique with a 25-gauge spinal needle will have a faster onset and improved quality of surgical anesthesia when compared ...

Phase N/A

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

Lidocaine to Prevent Cough and Hemodynamic Changes in Tracheal Extubation

Coughing during tracheal extubation can be associated to adverse effects like tachycardia, arterial hypertension (AHT), increase of intracranial pressure (ICP) and intraocular pressure (IOP), and the dehiscence of surgical wounds. In ophthalmic, head and neck, and abdominal surgery, and in several other neurosurgical interventions it is vital to prevent these ...


Multi-dose Acetaminophen for Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-arm parallel study.. Patients 50kg or more will receive either 1000mg IV acetaminophen or placebo with the first dose given preoperatively in the holding area followed by re-dosing every four hours from that point up to a maximum of 4 doses or 4000mg in ...


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

Evaluation of Influencing Variables in Awakening Concentration and Concentration at Body Movements of Propofol TCI (Targeted Controlled Infusion) Targeted at the Effector Site

Target-Controlled-Infusion (TCI), estimating the effect-size concentration (Ce) of propofol and its elimination time with a computerized system, provides the anaesthesiologist useful information to guide anaesthesia. Although the correlation between propofol at the effector site at loss of consciousness (Ce LOC) and age is still debated with contrasting results, the correlation ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Morning Operation and Evening Operation on Postoperative Sleep Quality and Pain Under General Anesthesia

eighty-four patients scheduled for elective laparoscopic abdominal surgeries under general anesthesia were randomly assigned to receive operation in the Day Group (8:00-12:00) and the Night Group (18:00-22:00). The Portable Sleep Monitor (PSM) was performed on the following 3 nights: the night before surgery (Sleep1), the rst night after surgery (Sleep ...

Phase N/A

Age and Number of Previous Anesthesia on the Development of Mild Cognitive Decline (MCI)

Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a common neuropsychiatric term encompassing a greater-than-expected cognitive decline for patient's age and schooling and no more than mild functional impairment that is insufficient to meet the threshold for a diagnosis of dementia (DSM-V: "mild neurocognitive disorder") thus forming part of a declining cognitive trajectory. ...

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 ...
