  • Anesthesiology
  • Our study was designed to test the hypothesis that spinal anesthesia would worsen the symptoms of restless leg syndrome," said the study's lead author, Dr. Thomas Crozier, an associate professor of anesthesiology at the University of Gottingen Medical School in Germany. (bio-medicine.org)
  • After obtaining institutional review board approval, 12 volunteers with American Society of Anesthesiology physical status 1 or 2 consented to undergo baseline bispectral analysis monitoring, 50-mg 5%-lidocaine spinal anesthesia without supplemental intravenous sedation, and continuous BIS monitoring. (asahq.org)
  • cerebrospinal
  • Batson's studies demonstrate how the cerebrospinal system continues from the pelvis and the dorsal spinal to the brain: it consists in the vertebral venous system or Batson's plexus, and the intracranial venous system and also includes the ophthalmological veins supplying the optic nerve (II cranial nerve) and oculomotor cranial nerves (III, IV, and VI cranial nerves) [ 14 ].

  • continuous
  • 16,17) This hypothesis is confirmed by Burgess et al (12) about continuous spinal anesthesia and the efficiency of 3. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Precise placement of epidural needles for single-injection techniques and catheters for continuous epidural anesthesia ensures that the dermatomes involved in the surgical procedure are selectively blocked, allowing for lower doses of local anesthetics to be used and sparing unnecessary blockade in nondesired regions.

  • To take advantage of continuous spinal anesthesia, a meticulous technique is required. (ovid.com)
  • After obtaining institutional review board approval, power analysis, and informed consent, 16 volunteers with American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status 1 or 2 consented to undergo baseline BIS monitoring, randomization to a 50-mg 5%-lidocaine spinal anesthesia or placebo without supplemental intravenous sedation, and continuous BIS monitoring.

  • canal
  • The amount of CSF per body weight is higher in neonates and infants (4 mL/kg) compared with adults (2 mL/kg), and the CSF is localized primarily in the spinal canal. (nysora.com)
  • hypothesis
  • Therefore, we sought to test the hypothesis that observed levels of sedation occurring during spinal anesthesia could be quantified by BIS monitoring and correlated with the extent of sensory blockade. (asahq.org)
  • needle
  • Spinal anesthesia was performed with the unsedated volunteer in the lateral decubitus position using a 25-gauge Whitacre needle (Kendall Mansfield, MA) with the orifice directed laterally at the L2-L3 interspace. (asahq.org)
  • After regional anesthesia, bleeding disorders are the greatest risk factors for the development of spinal hematoma 2,3 , although there are other known factors, such as difficult or traumatic insertion of the needle. (scielo.br)
  • adults
  • See 'Spinal column injuries in adults: Definitions, mechanisms, and radiographs', section on 'Anatomy' . (uptodate.com)
  • surgical
  • We think that it is important for people suffering from restless legs syndrome to know that there is, at worst, only a very small likelihood that spinal anesthesia, which is the best choice for a number of surgical procedures, will worsen their condition," he added. (bio-medicine.org)
  • type
  • Wide selection of spinal needles with Pencil-Point (Pencan®) and Quincke (Spinocan®) type bevels. (bbraunusa.com)
  • My question is about getting a spinal- is that the same type of issue involving a spinal tap? (asap.org)
  • high
  • spinal anesthesia in which the level of sensory denervation extends to the second or third thoracic dermatome, and sometimes as high as the cervical dermatomes. (drugs.com)
  • Obtain the heart rate variability (in means and standard deviation, including the high frequency, low frequency and its ratio) data of before and after spinal anesthesia with ECG (and Heart Rate Variability Analyzer) in 2 groups. (clinicaltrials.gov)
