Effect of butorphanol tartrate on shock-related discomfort during internal atrial defibrillation. (1/72)

BACKGROUND: In patients with atrial fibrillation, intracardiac atrial defibrillation causes discomfort. An easily applicable, short-acting analgesic and anxiolytic drug would increase acceptability of this new treatment mode. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a double-blind, placebo-controlled manner, the effect of intranasal butorphanol, an opioid, was evaluated in 47 patients with the use of a step-up internal atrial defibrillation protocol (stage I). On request, additional butorphanol was administered and the step-up protocol continued (stage II). Thereafter, if necessary, patients were intravenously sedated (stage III). After each shock, the McGill Pain Questionnaire was used to obtain a sensory (S), affective (A), evaluative (E), and total (T) pain rating index (PRI) and a visual analogue scale analyzing pain (VAS-P) and fear (VAS-F). For every patient, the slope of each pain or fear parameter against the shock number was calculated and individual slopes were averaged for the placebo and butorphanol group. All patients were cardioverted at a mean threshold of 4.4+/-3.3 J. Comparing both patient groups for stage II, the mean slopes for PRI-T (P=0.0099), PRI-S (P=0.019), and PRI-E (P=0.015) became significantly lower in the butorphanol group than in the placebo group. Comparing patients who received the same shock intensity ending stage I and going to stage II, in those patients randomized to placebo the mean VAS-P (P=0.023), PRI-T (P=0. 029), PRI-S (P=0.030), and PRI-E (P=0.023) became significantly lower after butorphanol administration. CONCLUSIONS: During a step-up internal atrial defibrillation protocol, intranasal butorphanol decreased or stabilized the value of several pain variables and did not affect fear. Of the 3 qualitative components of pain, only the affective component was not influenced by butorphanol. The PRI evaluated pain more accurately than the VAS.  (+info)

Assessment of opioid partial agonist activity with a three-choice hydromorphone dose-discrimination procedure. (2/72)

The discriminative stimulus and subjective effects of opioid mixed agonist-antagonists were assessed in volunteer nondependent heroin users trained in a three-choice drug discrimination procedure to discriminate among the effects of i.m. administration of 2 ml of saline, 1 mg of hydromorphone, and 4 mg of hydromorphone (a morphine-like mu agonist). Other subjective, behavioral, and physiological measures were concurrently collected. The discrimination was readily learned by six of the eight subjects. After training, generalization curves were determined for the following i.m. drug conditions: hydromorphone (0.375-4.0 mg), pentazocine (7.5-60 mg), butorphanol (0.75-6 mg), nalbuphine (3-24 mg), and buprenorphine (0.075-0.6 mg). All five of the test drugs were discriminated significantly or showed trends toward being discriminated as hydromorphone 1 mg-like at one or more dose levels. Hydromorphone showed an inverted U-shaped dose-effect function on the hydromorphone 1 mg-like discrimination. Subjective effect measures produced clearer differentiation among the test drugs than did drug discrimination performance. The present results differ from those of a previous study that observed a close relationship between the results of the discrimination measure and subjective effect measures. The previous study used similar methods and test drugs but different training drugs (e.g., 3 mg of hydromorphone versus 6 mg of butorphanol versus saline). It appears that both the sensitivity of drug discrimination performance to between-drug differences and the relationship between discriminative and subjective effects depends upon the specific discrimination that is trained (e.g., two-choice or three-choice). The present high dose-low dose-saline discrimination procedure appears useful for assessing partial agonist activity. The present data are consistent with partial agonist activity for pentazocine, butorphanol, nalbuphine, and buprenorphine.  (+info)

kappa-Opioid receptor effects of butorphanol in rhesus monkeys. (3/72)

Butorphanol and nalbuphine have substantial affinity for mu and kappa-opioid receptor sites, yet their behavioral effects in monkeys are largely consistent with a mu receptor mechanism of action. Using ethylketocyclazocine (EKC) discrimination and diuresis assays in rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta), the purpose of the current investigation was to characterize the in vivo kappa-opioid activity of these compounds through the use of an insurmountable mu-opioid receptor antagonist, clocinnamox. Alone, butorphanol (0.001-0.032 mg/kg i.m.) failed to generalize to EKC, and pretreatment with the competitive opioid receptor antagonist quadazocine (0.1 or 0.32 mg/kg i.m.) did not alter this generalization. At 24 h after clocinnamox (0.1 mg/kg i.m.) administration, butorphanol fully generalized to EKC, and this generalization was maintained in two of three monkeys at 72 h. Parallel results were observed in diuresis: butorphanol alone and in the presence of quadazocine (1 mg/kg i.m.) did not alter urine output, and a marked diuretic effect was demonstrated 24 h to 2 weeks after clocinnamox administration. Clocinnamox did not alter the discriminative stimulus or diuretic effects of nalbuphine or of the kappa-opioid receptor agonists EKC or U69593. These results are consistent with an in vivo agonist activity of butorphanol at kappa-opioid receptors that can only be demonstrated when an insurmountable antagonist has substantially eliminated the dominant receptor population through which it exerts its action.  (+info)

Butorphanol tartrate acts to decrease sow activity, which could lead to reduced pig crushing. (4/72)

The objective of this study was to determine whether administration of an analgesic to sows immediately after farrowing would allow them to lie more restfully. Sows lying on their pigs, causing them to be "crushed," is a major cause of pig mortality. Most deaths due to crushing occur during the first 3 d postpartum. For modern, lean-type sows, farrowing crates are relatively hard and unforgiving, even though they may be equipped with plastic-coated, expanded metal flooring. Indeed, many sows develop pressure sores on their shoulders, and this may contribute to the sows' discomfort. These sores may cause a sow to change position frequently to alleviate pain, thus increasing its chances of crushing pigs. Sixteen production sows were assigned to either a control group (C, n = 8) with litter size 11.71+/-.78 or an experimental group (B, n = 8) with litter size 11.63+/-1.22. Pigs born to C and B sows weighed 1.60+/-.04 and 1.37+/-.04 kg, respectively. The C sows were given no treatment, whereas the B sows were administered an i.m. injection of butorphanol tartrate at a dose of .15 mg/kg BW every 6 h until 3 d after farrowing. Data were collected on all sows using time-lapse photography (1 frame/.4 s) for a 3-d duration upon the initiation of farrowing. To assess the degree of comfort of each sow, body position changes were recorded when sows switched between lying, sitting, and standing. Data were analyzed by 12-h periods using Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney equations. During the 72-h period, B sows tended to perform fewer position changes than C sows (P = .10). Specifically, position changes were fewer for B sows from 48 to 72 h postpartum (P<.06). There were no differences in position changes between treatments from 0 to 48 h postpartum (P>.50). There was no difference in the rate of crushing between treatments (C = 5, B = 5). The butorphanol did not seem to affect pig activity or normal behaviors or to create adverse effects, such as diarrhea. Although the sows given butorphanol showed a reduced number of position changes, the dose was intermediate, and a higher dose may have a greater effect. If pig mortality can be decreased, an analgesic protocol that is simple to administer and readily available to producers can be developed. Alternatively, using of more pliable flooring or an increase in sow body fat may allow sows to lie more stationary.  (+info)

The effect of opioid and acepromazine premedication on the anesthetic induction dose of propofol in cats. (5/72)

The median effective dosage (ED50) for induction of anesthesia with propofol was determined by using the up-and-down method in 31 unpremedicated cats, in 30 cats premedicated with butorphanol, 0.4 mg/kg body weight (BW), and acepromazine, 0.1 mg/kg BW, intramuscularly, and in 30 cats premedicated with morphine, 0.2 mg/kg BW, and acepromazine, 0.1 mg/kg BW, intramuscularly. The dose required for a satisfactory anesthetic induction in 50% of unpremedicated cats (ED50) was 7.22 mg/kg BW and of premedicated cats was 5.00 mg/kg BW. The reduction in dose was statistically significant in both premedicated groups compared with no premedication. There was no significant difference in ED50 between premedication regimes. Cyanosis was the most common adverse effect observed in all groups following anesthetic induction with propofol.  (+info)

Preemptive effects of a combination of preoperative diclofenac, butorphanol, and lidocaine on postoperative pain management following orthognathic surgery. (6/72)

The aim of the study was to investigate whether preemptive multimodal analgesia (diclofenac, butorphanol, and lidocaine) was obtained during sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO). Following institutional approval and informed consent, 82 healthy patients (ASA-I) undergoing SSRO were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups, the preemptive multimodal analgesia group (group P, n = 41) and the control group (group C, n = 41). This study was conducted in a double-blind manner. Patients in group P received 50 mg rectal diclofenac sodium, 10 micrograms/kg intravenous 0.1% butorphanol tartrate, and 1% lidocaine solution containing 10 micrograms/mL epinephrine for regional anesthesia and for bilateral inferior alveolar nerve blocks before the start of surgery. Postoperative pain intensity at rest (POPI) was assessed on a numerical rating score (NRS) in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) and on a visual analogue scale (VAS) at the first water intake (FWI) and at 24, 48, and 72 hours after extubation. POPI in the PACU was significantly lower in group P than in group C, whereas there were no significant differences at FWI, 24, 48, and 72 hours after extubation in both groups. Preemptive multimodal analgesia was not observed in this study.  (+info)

Role of opioid receptors in neurogenic dural vasodilation and sensitization of trigeminal neurones in anaesthetized rats. (7/72)

Migraine headache is thought to be caused by a distension of meningeal blood vessels, the activation of trigeminal sensory neurones and the the development of a central sensitization within the trigeminal nucleus caudalis (TNC). It has been proposed that clinically effective 5-HT(1B/1D) agonists act peripherally to inhibit the release of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and neurogenic dural vasodilation, and to attenuate nociceptive neurotransmission within the TNC. Since opioids are also effective anti-migraine agents the present studies investigated the role of opioids within the trigemino-vascular system in anaesthetised rats. Electrical stimulation of the dura mater evoked neurogenic dural vasodilation which was significantly inhibited by morphine (1 mg kg(-1)) the selective mu-opioid agonist DAGO (10 microg kg(-1)) and the mixed agonist/antagonist butorphanol (1 mg kg(-1)) but not by the kappa- and delta-opioid agonists (+/-) U50488H (100 microg kg(-1)) and DPDPE (1 mg kg(-1)). Morphine had no effect on CGRP-evoked dural vasodilation. In electrophysiological studies morphine (1 - 10 mg kg(-1)) significantly attenuated brainstem neuronal activity in response to electrical stimulation of the dura by 65% at 10 mg kg(-1). Morphine (3 mg kg(-1)) also inhibited the TNC neuronal sensitization following CGRP-evoked dilation. The present studies have demonstrated that opioids block the nociceptive neurotransmission within the trigeminal nucleus caudalis and in addition inhibit neurogenic dural vasodilation via an action on mu-opioid receptors located on trigeminal sensory fibres innervating dural blood vessels. These peripheral and central actions are similar to those of the 'triptan' 5-HT(1B/1D) agonists and could account for the anti-migraine actions of opioids.  (+info)

Enadoline and butorphanol: evaluation of kappa-agonists on cocaine pharmacodynamics and cocaine self-administration in humans. (8/72)

Preclinical studies have demonstrated that kappa-opioid agonists can attenuate the neurochemical and behavioral effects of cocaine that are related to its reinforcing efficacy, suggesting that kappa-agonists may serve as pharmacotherapies for cocaine dependence. This 8-week inpatient study examined the ability of enadoline, a selective and high-efficacy kappa-agonist, and butorphanol, a mixed agonist with intermediate efficacy at both mu- and kappa-receptors, to reduce the direct pharmacodynamic effects and self-administration of intravenous cocaine in humans (n = 8). Acute doses of intramuscular enadoline (20, 40, and 80 microg/kg), butorphanol (1.5, 3, and 6 mg/70 kg) and placebo were examined separately as pretreatments during each of three test sessions with cocaine in a constrained random order. A cocaine dose-effect session (0, 20, and 40 mg cocaine i.v., 1 h apart) examined direct pharmacodynamic interactions on subjective and physiological indices; self-administration sessions examined choice behavior for cocaine (40 mg i.v. for six trials) versus money 1) in the presence of a sample cocaine dose with money choices presented in ascending value, and 2) in the absence of a sample dose with money choices presented in descending values. Enadoline (80 microg/70 kg) significantly (p < 0.05) reduced some of the positive subjective effects of cocaine (e.g., ratings of "high"), while butorphanol failed to modify subjective responses. Both agents were safely tolerated in combination with cocaine without adverse physiological responses. Cocaine self-administration was significantly greater across all pretreatment conditions when the sample dose was given and ascending money choices were used. Enadoline and butorphanol failed to modify cocaine self-administration. These data suggest that these kappa-agonists may be safely administered in the presence of cocaine but do not produce significant attenuation of cocaine's direct effects or self-administration under these acute dosing conditions.  (+info)

Butorphanol (BC 2627) is a morphinan-type synthetic agonist-antagonist opioid analgesic developed by Bristol-Myers. Brand name Stadol was recently discontinued by the manufacturer. It is now only available in its generic formulations, manufactured by Novex, Mylan, Apotex and Ben Venue Laboratories. Butorphanol is most closely structurally related to levorphanol. Butorphanol is available as the tartrate salt in injectable, tablet, and intranasal spray formulations. The tablet form is only used in dogs and cats due to low bioavailability in humans. The most common indication for butorphanol is management of migraine using the intranasal spray formulation. It may also be used parenterally for management of moderate-to-severe pain, as a supplement for balanced general anesthesia, and management of pain during labor. Butorphanol is also quite effective at reducing post-operative shivering (owing to its Kappa agonist activity). Butorphanol is more effective in reducing pain in women than in men. ...
Butorphanol is a synthetic opioid agonist-antagonist analgesic with a pharmacological and therapeutic profile that has been well established since its launch as a parenteral formulation in 1978. The introduction of a transnasal formulation of butorphanol represents a new and noninvasive presentation of an analgesic for moderate to severe pain. This route of administration bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, and this is an advantage for a drug such as butorphanol that undergoes significant first-pass metabolism after oral administration. The onset of action and systemic bioavailability of butorphanol following transnasal delivery are similar to those after parenteral administration. Butorphanol blocks pain impulses at specific sites in the brain and spinal cord ...

Medicine for butorphanol allergy - What is the definition or description of: Butorphanol allergy? Stadol Allergy. Butorphanol (Brand name: Stadol) is a synthetic opioid agonist- antagonist that is used for pain control. The brand name medication has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Allergic reactions to medications could include swelling of tongue, throat, lips, mouth, face, hives or difficulty breathing.
Butorphanol nasal sprays were hailed as a breakthrough medical advance when they first came out in 1978. Relief would be just a puff away for people suffering from migraine headaches.
To assess the discriminative stimulus properties of mixed agonist-antagonist opioids in humans, postaddict volunteers were trained in a three-choice drug discrimination procedure to discriminate among the effects of saline (4 ml i.m.), hydromorphone (3 mg i.m.) and butorphanol (6 mg i.m.). Subjects earned monetary reinforcement by correctly identifying the training drugs by letter code. Other subjective, behavioral and physiological measures were concurrently collected. After training, generalization curves for hydromorphone, butorphanol, pentazocine, nalbuphine and buprenorphine were determined. In generalization testing, both hydromorphone and butorphanol produced dose-related increases in hydromorphone-appropriate and butorphanol-appropriate responses, respectively, and other characteristic subjective effect measures. Nalbuphine produced dose-related increases in discrimination as butorphanol and in those subjective effect measures increased by butorphanol. Buprenorphine produced dose-related ...

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are useful first-line agents for migraine treatment because of their tolerability and efficacy for all migraine attacks. The best evidence of efficacy exists for aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, tolfenamic acid, and the combination of aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine. Acetaminophen alone is not useful.. Serotonin1B/1D agonists (triptans), used orally, intranasally, or by subcutaneous injection, are effective in migraine management. Chest symptoms can occur with the use of triptans, but true ischemic events are rare. Contraindications include risk of heart disease, basilar or hemiplegic migraine, or uncontrolled hypertension. Intranasal dihydroergotamine may be useful; the efficacy of intravenous preparations is less clear. Of the opioid preparations, only butorphanol nasal spray has been demonstrated to be efficacious. Few other data support the use of opioids; these drugs are probably best left for use in patients who have failed other ...

In phase 1 of the study, 4 cats received buprenorphine, 0.02 mg/kg intramuscularly (IM) and 6 cats received butorphanol, 0.4 mg/kg IM preoperatively In phase 1, 9 of the 10 subjects required rescue analgesia (methadone and meloxicam), and due to the high requirement for rescue analgesia in this group, phase 1 was discontinued for ethical reasons. In phase 2 of the study, the same experimental design was followed and 29 cats, 14 in the buprenorphine group and 15 in the butorphanol group, received the same doses of their assigned pre-operative opioid as the phase 1 cats, but these patients also received an additional dose of the same opioid at the same dosage as pre-operatively during wound closure. All cats from the phase 2 butorphanol group required rescue analgesia at 20 minutes postoperatively and were not evaluated at further time points. None of the cats in the phase 2 buprenorphine group required rescue analgesia and their pain scores declined at time points past 20 minutes postoperatively ...

canadian pharmacy generic viagra. The assessment of POPI in the PACU was conducted after confirmation of adequate arousal of the patient. However, as our preliminary study (unpublished data) revealed, there was difficulty in obtaining POPI scores on the VAS from patients at rest in the supine position. Therefore, assessment was done with the NRS. The preliminary study showed a definite correlation (r = .977) between the NRS and the VAS employed for parallel assessment of POPI (Spearmans rank correlation); therefore, we believe the use of the NRS for assessing POPI in the PACU did not affect the results of the study.. Diclofenac sodium, an NSAID, is effective in inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandin (PG). Its concentration producing a 50% inhibition is 1.6 jjiM/L, a value that is less than those of other NSAIDs, indicating a potent inhibitory effect on PG synthesis. In a study treating patients undergoing cholecystectomy with rectal sodium, 50 mg, an analgesic effect began to appear in 34 ...

VOS fellowship trained hand specialists work with their patients to provide a careful evaluation of hand and upper extremity injuries to ensure optimal results.
I had already discussed with Dr. Trumble my concerns and why I didnt want any harvesting of a Palmaris tendon off of my good arm to use as a graft and he agreed to use an allograft instead if necessary. We also discussed that he would put some more PRP into my left wrist also during the surgery in hopes to buy me more time in some healing for the TFCC tears since my arm was going to be immobilized anyhow. The PRP services were not covered by my insurance and I was responsible to take care of those specific costs directly with the PRP representative. However, Dr. Trumble was very happy to do the injections with my surgery and to work with my rep. Julian that had serviced my foot doctor many times before.. Summary: I close this blog being very thankful that I did find a doctor to not only believe in my problems with my left wrist and elbow, but that he was also willing to do something to help me when 2 years had already gone by with symptoms that were not resolving with chiropractic, physical ...

There are occasions when one has a surgical trainee who is observed to have great hands and is felt destined to have the tools to be a great surgeon. Yet, is exceptional dexterity all that is needed?. Surgery has its roots as far back as ancient Egypt, and very likely at every epoch there have been individuals who might well have exhibited all the attributes to fulfill the moniker of a great surgeon. With the rapid advances in technology and with surgical training undergoing major transformation, it might be useful to more clearly define what it ultimately takes to be considered the top of the field.. Atul Gawande, MD, in his article entitled Creating the educated surgeon in the 21st century1 noted that it has long been recognized that good surgery requires technical skill, safe judgment, and dedication. Adding to these criteria would be communication skills, decision-making skills, and empathy for the patient. Yet, those individuals who prove to be great surgeons must have something ...

Arterial blood pressure. The field-immobilised rhinoceroses were initially hypertensive (mean arterial pressure [MAP] 158 mmHg ± 18 mmHg; normal range for indirect MAP 108 mmHg - 135 mmHg [Citino & Bush 2007], Figure 4b). Following the supportive intervention blood pressure immediately decreased to normotensive levels (MAP 114 mmHg ± 16 mmHg at 10 min, p , 0.01, 5 vs 10 min) and all values following butorphanol + oxygen were lower than pre-intervention [F(3,42) = 42.8, p , 0.01]. There were no arterial blood pressure data from boma-immobilised animals for comparison.. Ethical considerations. This project was approved by the Animal Use and Care Committee of South African National Parks (SANParks) as well as the Animal Ethics Screening Committee of the University of the Witwatersrand (clearance 2012/23/04).
