  • Methods
  • Currently accepted methods for performing the Valsalva typically describe the patient in a sitting or semi-recumbent position prior to "bearing down" or straining. (pacificu.edu)
  • The aim of this study was to compare the abdominal and shoulder pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy by applying intra-abdominal bupivacaine instillation versus the trendelenburg position and valsalva maneuver.Methods:A double blind randomized clinical trial was conducted in the university hospital. (ac.ir)
  • autonomic
  • Variations of the maneuver can be used either in medical examination as a test of cardiac function and autonomic nervous control of the heart , or to clear the ears and sinuses (that is, to equalize pressure between them) when ambient pressure changes, as in diving , hyperbaric oxygen therapy , or air travel . (wikipedia.org)
  • The Valsalva maneuver (VM) consisting in a forced expiration against closed airways is one of the most popular clinical tests of the autonomic nervous system function. (asme.org)
  • Our next write up will focus on the application of Valsalva Maneuver in restoring heart rhythm, the autonomic nervous system disorder, clearing the clogged ears, and also increasing colonic pressure to induce a bowel movement. (medclique.org)
  • Conclusion
  • Mean total score of shoulder pain was 4.70 ±2.18 in group1, 1.23 ±0.11 in group 2, 1.18 ±0.11 in group 3, and 0.70 ±0.12 in group 4 (P= 0.001).Conclusion: Combined intra-peritoneal bupivacaine with trendelenburg positioning and valsalva maneuver was superior to either one alone in decreasing pain severity after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

  • clinical
  • A simple clinical maneuver to reduce laparoscopy-induced shoulder pain: a randomized controlled trial. (ac.ir)
  • cause
  • For babies or young children with SVT, pressing the knees to the chest and holding them there for about a minute can cause a response similar to the Valsalva maneuver. (secondscount.org)
  • response
  • In this work, we analyzed the response of the vena cava during normal breathing and Valsalva maneuver, for a healthy vena cava and after insertion of a commercial Günther-Tulip® filter. (asme.org)
  • blood flow
  • Validated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and patient specific data are used for analyzing blood flow inside the vena cava during these maneuvers. (asme.org)
  • left
  • There was a III/VI late peaking crescendo/decrescendo systolic murmur along the left sternal border radiating to the apex, which increased with standing and Valsalva's maneuver and decreased with squatting. (biomedcentral.com)
  • medical
  • Using these techniques - called vagal maneuvers - does not require a medical degree, but you should not try them without first discussing them in detail with your doctor (or your child's doctor). (secondscount.org)
  • In the book Using Medical Terminology: A Practical Approach , author Judi Lindsley Nath explains, "The Valsalva maneuver is elicited when the patient forcefully exhales while closing the mouth and nose. (littlethings.com)
  • time
  • This type of vagal maneuver is sometimes called a "diving reflex" because whales, seals, dolphins and penguins use it to help them stay underwater for long periods of time. (secondscount.org)
