Agents that are capable of inducing a total or partial loss of sensation, especially tactile sensation and pain. They may act to induce general ANESTHESIA, in which an unconscious state is achieved, or may act locally to induce numbness or lack of sensation at a targeted site.
Drugs that block nerve conduction when applied locally to nerve tissue in appropriate concentrations. They act on any part of the nervous system and on every type of nerve fiber. In contact with a nerve trunk, these anesthetics can cause both sensory and motor paralysis in the innervated area. Their action is completely reversible. (From Gilman AG, et. al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) Nearly all local anesthetics act by reducing the tendency of voltage-dependent sodium channels to activate.
Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)
Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately.

Dependence of explicit and implicit memory on hypnotic state in trauma patients. (1/226)

BACKGROUND: It is still unclear whether memory of intraoperative events results entirely from moments of inadequate anesthesia. The current study was designed to determine whether the probability of memory declines with increasing depth of the hypnotic state. METHOD: A list of words was played via headphones during surgery to patients who had suffered acute trauma. Several commonly used indicators of anesthetic effect, including the bispectral index, were recorded during word presentation. First, these indicators served as predictors of the memory performance in a postoperative word stem completion test. Second, general memory performance observed in the first part was separated into explicit and implicit memory using the process dissociation procedure, and then two models of memory were compared: One model assumed that the probability of explicit and implicit memory decreases with increasing depth of hypnotic state (individual differences model), whereas the other assumed equal memory performance for all patients regardless of their level of hypnotic state. RESULTS: General memory performance declined with decreasing bispectral index values. None of the other indicators of hypnotic state were related to general memory performance. Memory was still significant at bispectral index levels between 60 and 40. A comparison of the two models of memory resulted in a better fit of the individual differences model, thus providing evidence of a dependence of explicit and implicit memory on the hypnotic state. Quantification of explicit and implicit memory revealed a significant implicit but no reliable explicit memory performance. CONCLUSIONS: This study clearly indicates that memory is related to the depth of hypnosis. The observed memory performance should be interpreted in terms of implicit memory. Auditory information processing occurred at bispectral index levels between 60 and 40.  (+info)

Changes in core temperature compartment size on induction of general anaesthesia. (2/226)

A two-compartment model of temperature distribution estimates the core compartment to occupy 66% of body mass at rest, while the peripheral compartment comprises the remainder. General anaesthesia impairs thermoregulation by central and peripheral actions. Peripheral vasodilatation accelerates heat transfer from the core to peripheral compartment causing the core compartment to cool and expand in size. Core hypothermia may be a significant cause of postoperative morbidity. This undocumented change in the size of the core compartment on induction of anaesthesia can be calculated. Core size increased from the established value of 66% before induction of general anaesthesia to 71.2 (SD 6)% of body mass, 20 min after induction of anaesthesia (P = 0.0001). On induction of general anaesthesia, the core compartment cools and expands while the peripheral compartment warms and contracts by a corresponding amount. Measurement of the magnitude of changes in core:periphery heat distribution on induction of anaesthesia contribute to a clearer understanding of the pathophysiology of perioperative hypothermia.  (+info)

Structural consequences of anesthetic and nonimmobilizer interaction with gramicidin A channels. (3/226)

Although interactions of general anesthetics with soluble proteins have been studied, the specific interactions with membrane bound-proteins that characterize general anesthesia are largely unknown. The structural modulations of anesthetic interactions with synaptic ion channels have not been elucidated. Using gramicidin A as a simplified model for transmembrane ion channels, we have recently demonstrated that a pair of structurally similar volatile anesthetic and nonimmobilizer, 1-chloro-1,2,2-trifluorocyclobutane (F3) and 1,2-dichlorohexafluorocyclobutane (F6), respectively, have distinctly different effects on the channel function. Using high-resolution NMR structural analysis, we show here that neither F3 nor F6 at pharmacologically relevant concentrations can significantly affect the secondary structure of the gramicidin A channel. Although both the anesthetic F3 and the nonimmobilizer F6 can perturb residues at the middle section of the channel deep inside the hydrophobic region in the sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles, only F3, but not F6, can significantly alter the chemical shifts of the tryptophan indole N-H protons near the channel entrances. The results are consistent with the notion that anesthetics cause functional change of the channel by interacting with the amphipathic domains at the peptide-lipid-water interface.  (+info)

Multisecond oscillations in firing rate in the basal ganglia: robust modulation by dopamine receptor activation and anesthesia. (4/226)

Multisecond oscillations in firing rate in the basal ganglia: robust modulation by dopamine receptor activation and anesthesia. Studies of CNS electrophysiology have suggested an important role for oscillatory neuronal activity in sensory perception, sensorimotor integration, and movement timing. In extracellular single-unit recording studies in awake, immobilized rats, we have found that many tonically active neurons in the entopeduncular nucleus (n = 15), globus pallidus (n = 31), and substantia nigra pars reticulata (n = 31) have slow oscillations in firing rate in the seconds-to-minutes range. Basal oscillation amplitude ranged up to +/-50% of the mean firing rate. Spectral analysis was performed on spike trains to determine whether these multisecond oscillations were significantly periodic. Significant activity in power spectra (in the 2- to 60-s range of periods) from basal spike trains was found for 56% of neurons in these three nuclei. Spectral peaks corresponded to oscillations with mean periods of approximately 30 s in each nucleus. Multisecond baseline oscillations were also found in 21% of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons. The dopamine agonist apomorphine (0.32 mg/kg iv, n = 10-15) profoundly affected multisecond oscillations, increasing oscillatory frequency (means of spectral peak periods were reduced to approximately 15 s) and increasing the regularity of the oscillations. Apomorphine effects on oscillations in firing rate were more consistent from unit to unit than were its effects on mean firing rates in the entopeduncular nucleus and substantia nigra. Apomorphine modulation of multisecond periodic oscillations was reversed by either D1 or D2 antagonists and was mimicked by the combination of selective D1 (SKF 81297) and D2 (quinpirole) agonists. Seventeen percent of neurons had additional baseline periodic activity in a faster range (0.4-2.0 s) related to ventilation. Multisecond periodicities were rarely found in neurons in anesthetized rats (n = 29), suggesting that this phenomenon is sensitive to overall reductions in central activity. The data demonstrate significant structure in basal ganglia neuron spiking activity at unexpectedly long time scales, as well as a novel effect of dopamine on firing pattern in this slow temporal domain. The modulation of multisecond periodicities in firing rate by dopaminergic agonists suggests the involvement of these patterns in behaviors and cognitive processes that are affected by dopamine. Periodic firing rate oscillations in basal ganglia output nuclei should strongly affect the firing patterns of target neurons and are likely involved in coordinating neural activity responsible for motor sequences. Modulation of slow, periodic oscillations in firing rate may be an important mechanism by which dopamine influences motor and cognitive processes in normal and dysfunctional states.  (+info)

A single amino acid confers barbiturate sensitivity upon the GABA rho 1 receptor. (5/226)

Many structurally diverse general anaesthetics enhance inhibitory neurotransmission in the central nervous system by interacting with the GABAA receptor. By contrast, GABA receptors composed of the rho 1 subunit are anaesthetic-insensitive. Here, we demonstrate that both delta-hexachlorocyclohexane (delta-HCH; 1-100 microM), a positive allosteric modulator of the GABAA receptor, and the anaesthetic pentobarbitone (10-600 microM) have no effect on GABA-evoked currents mediated by wild-type rho 1 recombinant receptors (expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes). By contrast, these agents produce up to a 10 fold enhancement of GABA responses transduced by a rho 1 receptor in which a transmembrane located isoleucine residue is replaced by serine. However, not all general anaesthetics were similarly influenced by this mutation, because propofol and 5 beta-pregnan-3 alpha-ol-20-one (5 beta 3 alpha) remained ineffective. These data are discussed in relation to the specificity of general anaesthetic action.  (+info)

Distinctly different interactions of anesthetic and nonimmobilizer with transmembrane channel peptides. (6/226)

Although it plays no clinical role in general anesthesia, gramicidin A, a transmembrane channel peptide, provides an excellent model for studying the specific interaction between volatile anesthetics and membrane proteins at the molecular level. We show here that a pair of structurally similar volatile anesthetic and nonimmobilizer (nonanesthetic), 1-chloro-1,2,2-trifluorocyclobutane (F3) and 1, 2-dichlorohexafluorocyclobutane (F6), respectively, interacts differently with the transmembrane peptide. With 400 microM gramicidin A in a vesicle suspension of 60 mM phosphatidylcholine-phosphatidylglycerol (PC/PG), the intermolecular cross-relaxation rate constants between (19)F of F3 and (1)H in the chemical shift regions for the indole and backbone amide protons were 0.0106 +/- 0.0007 (n = 12) and 0.0105 +/- 0.0014 (n = 8) s(-1), respectively. No cross-relaxation was measurable between (19)F of F6 and protons in these regions. Sodium transport study showed that with 75 microM gramicidin A in a vesicle suspension of 66 mM PC/PG, F3 increased the (23)Na apparent efflux rate constant from 149.7 +/- 7.2 of control (n = 3) to 191.7 +/- 12.2 s(-1) (n = 3), and the apparent influx rate constant from 182.1 +/- 15.4 to 222.8 +/- 21.7 s(-1) (n = 3). In contrast, F6 had no effects on either influx or efflux rate. It is concluded that the ability of general anesthetics to interact with amphipathic residues near the peptide-lipid-water interface and the inability of nonimmobilizer to do the same may represent some characteristics of anesthetic-protein interaction that are of importance to general anesthesia.  (+info)

General anaesthetic actions on ligand-gated ion channels. (7/226)

The molecular mechanisms of general anaesthetics have remained largely obscure since their introduction into clinical practice just over 150 years ago. This review describes the actions of general anaesthetics on mammalian neurotransmitter-gated ion channels. As a result of research during the last several decades, ligand-gated ion channels have emerged as promising molecular targets for the central nervous system effects of general anaesthetics. The last 10 years have witnessed an explosion of studies of anaesthetic modulation of recombinant ligand-gated ion channels, including recent studies which utilize chimeric and mutated receptors to identify regions of ligand-gated ion channels important for the actions of general anaesthetics. Exciting future directions include structural biology and gene-targeting approaches to further the understanding of general anaesthetic molecular mechanisms.  (+info)

Comparison of bispectral index, 95% spectral edge frequency and approximate entropy of the EEG, with changes in heart rate variability during induction of general anaesthesia. (8/226)

We have compared bispectral index (BIS), 95% spectral edge frequency (SEF) and approximate entropy (ApEn) in 37 patients during induction and recovery from a short general anaesthetic. Heart rate variability (HRV) was also compared during induction only. These indices were noted at the start of induction, when a syringe held between the thumb and fingertips was dropped, at insertion of a laryngeal mask or tracheal tube (tube insertion), at incision, at the end of surgery, on return of the gag reflex and when the patient could follow a verbal command. When indices at the start of induction were compared with those at tube insertion, all four decreased significantly. BIS decreased from a mean of 95.38 (SEM 1.02) to 44.22 (1.05), mean SEF from 20.91 (1.19) to 14.14 (0.70) Hz, mean HRV from 37.1 (7.75) to 17.9 (3.6) bpm2 and ApEn from 0.90 (0.06) to 0.65 (0.04). Using logistic regression, the indices were compared both individually and in combination as to the power of distinguishing awake (at pre-induction) from asleep (at tube insertion) states. BIS had the best predictive power, with a sensitivity of 97.3%, specificity 94.4%, positive predictive value 94.7% and negative predictive value 97.1%. A combination of the indices conferred no additional predictive advantage.  (+info)

Large trials have demonstrated that around 1 to 2 per 1000 patients experience some form of awareness. The majority of these do not feel pain although around one third did. The most traumatic case of anesthesia awareness is full consciousness during surgery with pain and explicit recall of intra-operative events. The patient may feel the pain or pressure of surgery, hear conversations, or feel as if they cannot breathe. The patient may be unable to communicate any distress because they have been given a paralytic/muscle relaxant. A fully paralyzed patient is unable to move, speak, blink the eyes, or otherwise respond to the pain. If anesthesia awareness does occur, about 42% feel the pain of the operation, 94% experience panic/anxiety (sometimes because they cannot breathe), and 70% experience lasting psychological symptoms. Currently, the anesthesia provider community accepts that anesthesia awareness occurs yet is in denial about its frequency. Most studies show its incidence is 1-2 ...
A minority of the people who experience anesthesia awareness develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Seeing the environment of an operating table while on the table can be an extremely disturbing experience, and the drugs in a patients system can exacerbate the impact of realizing what is happening. People who experience PTSD often have nightmares and flashbacks about the traumatic event they experienced and may develop symptoms including anxiety, depression, irritability, restlessness, and personality changes.. Since anesthesia awareness happens in only one or two out of every 1,000 surgeries, its impossible to predict whether you are at risk of experiencing it. You can do a few things to limit the chances of waking up during surgery, however. Follow your doctors preoperative instructions very carefully and ask for clarification for anything you do not fully understand. If you experience trauma from anesthesia awareness, you should reach out to a reliable Philadelphia anesthesia error ...
In the early 1980s, Franks and Lieb[35] demonstrated that the Meyer-Overton correlation can be reproduced using a soluble protein. They found that two classes of proteins are inactivated by clinical doses of anaesthetic in the total absence of lipids. These are luciferases, which are used by bioluminescent animals and bacteria to produce light,[36] and cytochrome P450,[37] which is a group of heme proteins that hydroxylate a diverse group of compounds, including fatty acids, steroids, and xenobiotics such as phenobarbital. Remarkably, inhibition of these proteins by general anaesthetics was directly correlated with their anaesthetic potencies. Luciferase inhibition also exhibits a long-chain alcohol cutoff, which is related to the size of the anaesthetic-binding pocket.[38] These observations were important because they demonstrated that general anaesthetics may also interact with hydrophobic protein sites of certain proteins, rather than affect membrane proteins indirectly through nonspecific ...
γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-inhibited Cl- channel, type A (α-, β- γ-subunit precursors), regulated by GABA receptor accessory protein, GABARAP (Luu et al., 2006). The anti-convulsant stiripentol acts directly on the GABA(A) receptor as a positive allosteric modulator (Fisher 2009). The major central endocannabinoid, 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG), also directly acts at GABA(A) receptors to potentiate the receptor at low GABA concentrations (Sigel et al., 2011). The recpetor is also allosterically regulated by neurosteroids via TMS1 of the beta subunit (Baker et al. 2010). General anesthetic binding site(s) have been identified (Chiara et al., 2012; Woll et al. 2018). Hydrophobic anions potently and uncompetitively antagonize GABA (A) receptor function (Chisari et al., 2011). Regulated by neurosteroids; activated by pregnenolone and allopregnenalone (Costa et al., 2012). Allopregnanolone and its synthetic analog alphaxalone are GABAAR positive allosteric modulators (Yu et al. 2019). Different ...

Whats the difference between local and general anaesthetic, If you are having an operation then you will most probably be having either a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic before having the operation.
The use of general anesthesia is normally safe and produces a state of sedation that doesnt break in the middle of a procedure, doctors say. The patient and anesthesiologist collect as much medical history as possible beforehand, including alcohol and drug habits, to help determine the most appropriate anesthetic.. You may think of it as going to sleep, but in terms of what your body is doing, general anesthesia has very little in common with taking a nap.. During sleep, the brain is in its most active state; anesthesia, on the other hand, depresses central nervous system activity. On the operating table, your brain is less active and consumes less oxygen - a state of unconsciousness nothing like normal sleep.. Doctors do not know exactly how general anesthesia produces this effect. It is clear that anesthetic drugs interfere with the transmission of chemicals in the brain across the membranes, or walls, of cells.. But the mechanism is the subject of ongoing research, Dr. Alexander ...
The situation that occurs when a patient under general anesthesia becomes aware of some or all events during surgery or a procedure, and has direct recall of those events. Because of the routine use of neuromuscular blocking agents (also called paralytics) during general anesthesia, the patient is often unable to communicate with the surgical team. Continuous monitoring of the patient means by considering the patient physiology should necessary to control risk factors of anesthesia. In some high-risk surgeries such as cardiac, trauma, and emergency caesarean deliveries, using a deep anesthetic may not be in the best interest of the patient. In these and other critical or emergency situations, awareness might not be completely avoidable. ...

You normally wont be allowed to eat or drink anything before having a general anaesthetic. This is because when you are under anaesthetic your bodys reflexes are temporarily stopped. If your stomach has food and drink in it, theres a risk of vomiting or regurgitation (bringing up food into the throat). This could spill into your lungs and affect your breathing, as well as causing damage to your lungs ...

3UGD: Structural and functional characterization of an anesthetic binding site in the second cysteine-rich domain of protein kinase C delta
The role of extra-synaptic receptors in the regulation of excitation and inhibition in the brainhas attracted increasing attention. Because activity in the extra-synaptic receptors plays a role inregulating the level of excitation and inhibition in the brain, they may be important in determiningthe level of consciousness. This paper reviews briefly the literature on extra-synaptic GABAand NMDA receptors and their affinity to anesthetic drugs. We propose a neural populationmodel that illustrates how the effect of the anesthetic drug propofol on GABAergic extra-synapticreceptors results in changes in neural population activity and the electroencephalogram (EEG). Our results show that increased tonic inhibition in inhibitory cortical neurons cause a dramaticincrease in the power of both delta and alpha bands. Conversely, the effects of increased tonicinhibition in cortical excitatory neurons and thalamic relay neurons have the opposite effect anddecrease the power in these bands. The increased delta

A general anaesthetic (which puts you to sleep during your operation) can affect your coordination and reasoning skills, so avoid alcohol, operating machinery or signing legal documents for at least 48 hours. You cannot drive legally within 48 hours of a general anaesthetic. It will be at least one to two weeks before you can drive after keyhole surgery and two to six weeks after open surgery. You must not drive before you are pain free. Contact your car insurance company before returning to the wheel. It usually takes 10-15 days before you can get back to normal activities such as walking, shopping and sport. You may recover faster if you have had keyhole surgery. You should be able to return to work after two to four weeks, depending on the extent of surgery and your type of work.. Gentle exercise can help the healing process, but you should avoid anything too strenuous and heavy lifting. You may find sex painful or uncomfortable at first, but it is fine to have sex when you feel like it. ...

And I was more scared about the whole sort of process than I was about what it might show. And I remember how frightened I was when I went into hospital that day to have it done, and sort of turning up on this ward and waiting for this kind of operation thing. And there was nothing wrong with me. It seemed a really odd sort of way to be going about things.

The pre-assessment nurse will ask you about your general health, medical history, previous anaesthetic, and if there were any problems.. It is important that you are assessed prior to your operation to minimise the risks associated with your surgery. This appointment usually takes place soon after you have seen the surgeon in the clinic.. The anaesthetist will discuss your general health, the types of anaesthetic and pain relief that can be used and their risks and benefits. Consent for your general anaesthetic will be obtained at this time.. A record will be made of any family history of anaesthetic problems, medicines, pills, inhalers or alternative medication that you use.. Check will also be made and recorded on allergies, smoking, alcohol and whether you have any loose, capped or crowned teeth. You may have investigations such as blood tests, a heart trace (ECG), urine tests and X-rays. This helps your anaesthetist consider any medical problems which may either affect the risks to yourself, ...
Hi Jeremy No, you got the wrong end of the stick. I just meant that you were lucky about having the pump thing done in hospital to test your basal rates, not the operation where you had the drip! Since my experience of doctors, sliding scales and drips is not so good asyours was, I said you were lucky. I too have plenty of horror stories about hospital inpatient treatment. I always take my meter, strips, insulin, glucose tabs, etc. etc. with me to hospital and refuse to let them take them off me. I was unsure about the glucose tabs with the anaesthetic, though you may be right. Actually when I broke my elbow I had an emergnecy operation under general anaesthetic, and I had eaten breakfast about 2 hours (before the accident) and they did the op anyway. And it was the only time Ive not been sick after an anaesthetic! They did stick tubes down my nose and throat though.

In recent years there has been a large increase in the amount of surgical procedures now available on an outpatient basis (Gilmartin & Wright, 2008). This is due largely to advances in surgical methods and also in response to increasing demands on the National Health Service (M. Mitchell, 2010). This shift impacts patients and health care professionals alike who must adapt to home based recovery and symptom management (Stomberg, Segerdahl, Rawal, Jakobsson, & Brattwall, 2008). This research will investigate patients expectations, experiences, recovery and satisfaction with office based surgery conducted in a private clinic.. The advancement of office based surgery has led to a rise in the number of procedures completed under local rather than general anaesthetic (Chukmaitov, Devers, Harless, Menachemi, & Brooks, 2011). Resultantly, the number of patients who are conscious during surgery has risen. The environment of the operating theatre must now be considered and nurses are become increasingly ...

GABAA receptors (GABAARs) are targets for important classes of clinical agents (e.g. anxiolytics, anticonvulsants and general anesthetics) that act as positive allosteric modulators (PAMs). Previously, using photoreactive analogs of etomidate ([3H]azietomidate) and mephobarbital ([3H]R-mTFD-MPAB), we identified two homologous but pharmacologically distinct classes of general anesthetic binding sites in the α1β3γ2 GABAAR transmembrane domain at β+-α- (β+-sites) and α+-β-/γ+-β- (β--sites) subunit interfaces. We now use competition photolabeling with [3H]azietomidate and [3H]R-mTFD-MPAB to identify para-substituted propofol analogs and other drugs that bind selectively to intersubunit anesthetic sites. Propofol and 4-chloro-propofol bind with 5-fold selectivity to β+, while derivatives with bulkier lipophilic substitutions [4-(tert-butyl)-propofol and 4-(hydroxyl(phenyl)methyl)-propofol] bind with ~10-fold higher affinity to β- sites. Similar to R-mTFD-MPAB and propofol, these drugs ...

General anaesthetic can make the pain of operations worse for patients recovering after surgery by activating the bodys mustard receptors, researchers have found. Many of the drugs that send surgical patients to sleep are known to make them more sensitive to pain when they wake up. Scientists now believe they have discovered the reason for the side effect. The findings may help researchers develop new anaesthetics that are kinder to recovering patients. General anaesthetics all suppress the central nervous system to cause unconsciousness and paralysis. But they can also activate pain-sensing cells in the peripheral nervous system, leading to post-operative discomfort. The new research focused on two of these pain receptors, TRPV1 and TRPA1, which often appear together and also react to irritants such as the chilli chemical capsaicin and mustard. Study leader Dr Gerard Ahern, from Georgetown University Medical Centre in Washington DC, said: Plants produce chemicals such as capsaicin, ...
Duke University Scool of Medicine Duke Anesthesiology When the movie Awake came out in theaters it sparked much controversy throughout the country about the condition also known as anesthesia awareness. Following the release of the movie, Larry King Live did a special about this issue, in which King interviewed physicians and patients who have suffered from awareness. In response to the recent influx in publicity over the issue, the DREAM Campaign has taken the initiative to interview Dr. Tong Joo (TJ) Gan, who sheds light on many concerns that patients have when considering a surgical procedure as well as the misconceptions about anesthesiology in general. With so much focus on awareness and the negative impacts of anesthesia, it is important that the public be properly informed. Awareness can be a highly unpleasant experience, but most times the alternative is a surgery with negative outcomes or even worse, death. There are about 100 to 150 reported cases of anesthesia awareness per year in ...
A hospital in Glasgow is doing away with the general anaesthetic, replacing drugs with discs for those who come in for knee surgery.
Of 211 978 children included, 82 156 had developmental assessment and 153 025 had school test results, with 12 848 (15.7%) and 25 032 (16.4%) exposed to general anesthesia, respectively. Children exposed to general anesthesia had 17%, 34%, and 23% increased odds of being developmentally high risk (adjusted odds ratio [aOR]: 1.17; 95% CI: 1.07-1.29); or scoring below the national minimum standard in numeracy (aOR: 1.34; 95% CI: 1.21-1.48) and reading (aOR: 1.23; 95% CI: 1.12-1.36), respectively. Although the risk for being developmentally high risk and poor reading attenuated for children with only 1 hospitalization and exposure to general anesthesia, the association with poor numeracy results remained.. ...
This study describes for the first time the identification of low-molecular-weight organic compounds that act as positive allosteric modulators at GABAB receptors in a native environment (rat brain membranes, neuronal cultures) or in recombinant expression systems (stably or transiently transfected mammalian cell lines, X. laevis oocytes).. The compound CGP7930, structurally close to the general anesthetic propofol, and its aldehyde analog CGP13501 potentiated GABA-induced signals in a functional receptor test (GTPγ[35S] binding), using membranes from CHO cells stably expressing the GABAB receptor (Fig.2). The findings that these signals exceeded the response elicited by a maximally active concentration of GABA alone and that these two compounds did not stimulate GTPγ[35S] binding in the absence of GABA to any relevant extent clearly show that they acted as positive modulators, without intrinsic agonistic activity. In GTPγ[35S] experiments, but not in the other assays, a very marginal effect ...
Heart disease among pregnant women is increasing in incidence. The cardiovascular changes associated with pregnancy may be particularly hazardous for both mother and fetus in a subset of these patients. The period of greatest risk is peripartum while these patients are under the care of the obstetrician and anesthesiologist. Exposing a compromised patient to general anesthesia is further complicated by the cardiovascular stress response to intubation and surgery, the cardiorespiratory implications of mechanical ventilation, the cardiac depression and vasodilation from general anesthetics, residual post-operative respiratory depression from general anesthetics and narcotics and the stress of weaning from mechanical ventilation and post-operative pain.. In the Adult Congenital Heart Program, obstetric patients are followed the by a specialized team of cardiologists, obstetricians and anesthesiologists who also follow all pregnant women referred with acquired cardiac disease. From this referral ...
Very few non-domestic animals are sufficiently co-operative to allow a vet to carry out detailed examinations or treatments without a general anaesthetic. Of course, general anaesthetics are also required for any surgery in exactly the same way as they are in people. Our consultant veterinarian has made a speciality of ape anaesthesia and we have a wide range of anaesthetic drugs to choose from which allows us to tailor the anaesthetic to suit a situation and a particular animal.. We are confident that if an animal requires an anaesthetic it will receive the best available. However, it is necessary to appreciate that no anaesthetic (for an animal or human) is entirely risk free, and all attempts are made to minimise their use. To this end, Monkey World has devoted considerable keeper time and effort in conditioning some of our animals to accept minor veterinary procedures without anaesthesia. All of the chimpanzees and orang-utans are now trained (through operant conditioning) to allow our staff ...
Exercise induced anaphylaxis is often due to an unknown allergen-maybe that is why the anaethetist was reluctant? I deal with anaesthetic drugs in my line of work and its never come up as a contraindication.Anaphylaxis is not a contraindication to general anaesthetics-there are a variety of different drugs that can be used for those with different allergies.= ...
Those videos are interesting. They make a lot of sense. I think for the most part, its brain over soul. However, one thing still confuses me. Its about NDEs. The concept of a soul being non physical and being able to interact with the physical world makes little sense as you, Matthew have pointed out. However, I just wonder how people can have these experiences under anesthesia. As said before, the rate of anesthesia awareness during cardiac arrest is 1 in 1000. Yet, 10 percent of cardiac arrest patients have them and they feel totally real. That is one reason why I cant fully dismiss them ...
If you have had a general anaesthetic, you will wake up in the recovery room after your operation. To help you breathe, you may have an oxygen mask on your face. You may feel a bit drowsy.. If you had a regional or local anaesthetic, you will be able to go back to the ward sooner, but your arm will be numb and floppy for several hours. It is normal for your hand to be elevated in a sling (a large bandage designed to support a body part) to control inflammation (swelling) of the hand.. Following the operation, your hand is likely to be bruised and swollen and, when the anaesthetic wears off, it will be painful. You will need to take painkillers, such as ibuprofen, for up to two weeks.. You will not usually be able to drive, so you may need someone to take you home. If you live on your own and you have had a general anaesthetic, you may be advised to stay in hospital overnight. You may also need to stay overnight if you need hand therapy in hospital before you go home.. ...
When the first clinical report of xenons use as a general anesthetic appeared in the middle of the last century,1 it seemed almost too good to be true. Surely, a compound that possesses many of the properties of an ideal anesthetic (stable, nonbiotransformable, nontoxic, nonflammable, nonirritant, low blood-gas partition coefficient) would be widely and quickly adopted into clinical practice. Why has this not happened? Among the factors that may have contributed to its sporadic use include xenons high cost (predicated by the complex purification process of an exceedingly scarce element from the atmosphere), the need for a specialized delivery and monitoring system, the relatively recent (in the last decade) authorization from a regulatory agency for its marketing as a general anesthetic, and the weirdness of why a chemically inert compound can exert such powerful behavioral effects. Work from each of Bart Westerkamp (for the delivery system2), Air Liquide Sante (for the market ...
A number of treatments and investigations are performed at Dr Kennedys consulting rooms as outpatient procedures. Some of these are listed below.. Colposcopy. Colposcopy is a procedure to carry out a magnified examination of your cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. During colposcopy, a special instrument called a colposcope is used. Your GP may recommend colposcopy if your Pap test has shown abnormal results. If an unusual area of cells is detected during colposcopy, a sample of tissue can be sometimes be collected for laboratory testing (biopsy).. LLETZ. A LLETZ procedures is performed to removed precancerous abnormalities of the cervix that have been detected with a colposcopy. The procedure can performed under a local or a general anaesthetic. LLETZs performed under a local anaesthetic can be performed in Dr Kennedys rooms, thereby avoiding a full general anaesthetic. The cervix is examined using a colposcope. A fine wire loop charged with electricity is used to shave away the ...

Posted in Random thoughts, Too Much Information at 10:56 pm by ducky. I had minor surgery recently that I wasnt particularly looking forward to. It required a general anesthetic, and in my two previous experiences with general anesthetic, I had real trouble with nausea. I basically woke up, rolled over, and threw up.. This time, however, when I woke up, I had no nausea at all. I felt surprisingly good, and was actually even chatty when I woke up. I continued to be chatty and happy and only a little tired for the next few hours.. In fact, on the drive home, at one point, Jim remarked, Honey, youre high! Surprised, I took stock, and had to agree. I cant actually speak from experience - I dont drink, and I have never taken any controlled substances that werent prescribed. But I could tell that I was in some kind of an altered state: I was gregarious, garrulous, and euphoric. (For those of you who know me, I should say more gregarious and more garrulous.). What was going on?. One of the nice ...

I dont think it is possible for me to put into words just how amazing it was to have Sam with me for my for my planned, hypnobirthing caesarean section. She was so calming and reassuring when I was incredibly anxious and stressed, especially going into such a highly medicalised situation.. Her support, both emotionally and practically, was simply amazing before, during, and after the caesarean birth and I instantly missed her when she had left us for the final time. I just cant imagine going through the caesarean without her. Just her being with me and her presence alone was so calming, and even when I was in great discomfort post caesarean, just her being with me was a huge comfort. She was so tender and attentive to my new son and myself. It meant so much to me. ...

FRIDAY, Feb. 15, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Infants who are given general anesthesia for an hour are unlikely to suffer harm, but the safety of longer and repeated exposure remains unknown, a new study says.. Among more than 700 infants in seven countries, the researchers didnt find any measurable neurodevelopmental or behavioral problems up to the age of 5.. Nearly half the general anesthetics given to infants are used for less than one hour. Therefore, our findings should reassure health professionals and the millions of parents whose young children undergo surgical or diagnostic procedures with anesthetic drugs worldwide every year, said researcher Andrew Davidson, from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Australia.. The study authors noted that most of the infants in the study group were male and more research is needed to confirm the findings in girls.. In the first three years of life, about one in 10 children in developed countries have surgical, medical and diagnostic procedures ...

A gastroscopy often takes less than 15 minutes, although it may take longer if its being used to treat a condition.. The procedure will usually be carried out by an endoscopist (a healthcare professional who specialises in performing endoscopies) and assisted by a nurse. Youll meet the nurse before the procedure and theyll be able to answer any questions you have and youll also have an opportunity to ask the endoscopist.. A local anaesthetic spray will be used to numb your throat for the procedure and youll be asked beforehand if youd like to have a sedative injection. Young children may have the procedure under general anaesthetic, which means theyll be asleep while its carried out.. The sedative will help you feel drowsy and relaxed during the procedure, but youll need to stay in hospital for a bit longer while you recover, and youll need someone to pick you up from the hospital and stay with you for at least 24 hours. You wont able to work or drive during this period (see ...
Can be used up to 15 weeks of pregnancy. It involves inserting a tube through the entrance to the womb (the cervix) and into your womb. The pregnancy is then removed using suction.. Your cervix will be gently widened (dilated) first. A tablet may be placed inside your vagina or taken by mouth a few hours beforehand to soften your cervix and make it easier to open.. Pain relief is usually given using medicines that you take by mouth, and local anaesthetic, which is numbing medicine injected into the cervix. You may also be offered some sedation, which is given by injection. A general anaesthetic isnt usually needed.. Vacuum aspiration takes about 5 to 10 minutes and most women go home a few hours later. ...
Thanks Cathy! The bronchitis is hanging on, because I am a smoker, but it will go eventually. The abscess was, quite literally, a nightmare. I went to my dentist, but he said I needed a surgeon, so he called my ex-boss. He took one look at me, and told me that I needed the abscess draining, and the tooth removed. Because I had worked for him for so long, I knew that local anesthetic wont work when there is that much infection. I did ask if there was any other way, and he said yes - general anesthetic in hospital. I obviously didnt have the money for that, so I sat in his chair, and he pulled the tooth. I have not known pain like that in my life before!! And, just when I wished I was dying, he said its out, good riddance!. But then he started pushing on the swelling, to get the pus out, and then I started praying that he would die, LOL!! I honestly didnt recognize myself - I was screaming, kicking my legs, trying to get his hands off my face with my fingers, you name it!! Absolute hell on ...
This operation generally requires a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital. This is a DCR operation, which translates into making a channel from the tear sac into the nose. One common operation is a cut on the skin over the tear sac, and then a small hole made in the bone between the tear sac and the nose. Next the surgeon connects the tear sac to the inside of the nose, and closes the cut in the skin. The skin scar fades and is usually nearly invisible after six months.. There are other types of operation, such as using balloons that can be blown up to expand the blocked tear duct. These may not be quite as successful, and are only available in a few hospitals. Alternatively the DCR operation can be carried out by using special instruments up the nose.. Instructions after surgery. Leaflet DCRs operation. ...

LNF is a type of laparoscopic or keyhole surgery. This means its carried out using special surgical instruments inserted through small cuts (incisions) in the skin.. The procedure is used to tighten the ring of muscle at the bottom of the oesophagus, which helps to stop acid leaking up from the stomach. Its carried out in hospital under general anaesthetic.. Most people need to stay in hospital for two or three days after the procedure. Depending on your job, you may be able to return to work within three to six weeks.. For the first six weeks after surgery, you should only eat soft food, such as mince, mashed potatoes or soup. Some people experience problems with swallowing, belching and bloating after LNF, but these should get better with time.. ...

Spinal neurosurgery is carried out in hospital under general anaesthetic. You will normally be admitted the evening before the operation. This allows you time to settle in and be prepared.
The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and takes about an hour for each arm.. You will usually stay in overnight; sometimes you may go home the same day.. The skin and fat to be excised is planned in such a way that the scar lies on the inner aspect of the arm. It is usually a T-shaped scar (with the transverse or horizontal part of the T in the armpit). The wounds are closed with dissolving sutures. You may have drains inserted.. ...
