  • Finally, Corning was incorrect in his theory on the mechanism of action of cocaine on the spinal nerves and spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • He proposed - mistakenly - that the cocaine was absorbed into the venous circulation and subsequently transported to the spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • This can be due to decreased sympathetic nervous system output or to increased parasympathetic activity occurring as a consequence of injury to the brain or spinal cord or of dysautonomia, an intrinsic abnormality in autonomic system functioning. (wikipedia.org)
  • propofol
  • As propofol has been shown to have deleterious effects on oocyte fertilization (in a mouse model), some authors have suggested that the dose of propofol administered during anesthesia should be limited, and also that the retrieved oocytes should be washed free of propofol. (wikipedia.org)
  • profound
  • Bradycardia in this setting may be treated with atropine.The Bezold-Jarisch reflex has been suggested as a possible cause of profound bradycardia and circulatory collapse after spinal anesthesia. (wikipedia.org)
