• labor analgesia
  • However, as clinicians and consumers alike look for alternatives to systemic opioid or neuraxial labor analgesia, and as public awareness of N 2 O's potential use in labor and delivery expands, the time has come to look at use of gas and air in the childbirth setting more closely. (lww.com)

  • spinal
  • Switching from bupivacaine to lidocaine may improve intrathecal morphine analgesia in advanced cancer patients, possibly because of different spinal mechanisms limiting the hyperalgesic processes. (lww.com)
  • In patients with chronic cancer pain, combination spinal chemotherapy is often used in clinical conditions in which the response to systemic analgesia is poor (1) . (lww.com)
  • systemic
  • The wait time is important for avoiding toxic levels of anesthetics in the systemic bloodstream which can lead to hypotension, convulsions and even death in extreme cases so, cardiotoxic LA like bupivacaine and etidocaine are strictly contraindicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • opioids
  • These may be particularly important in the elderly or those receiving concomitant opioids, respiratory depressant, or vasoactive drugs. (lww.com)
  • segmental

  • general
  • Once in the electrophysiology laboratory, the patient received general anesthesia and positive- pressure ventilation without positive end-expiratory pressure. (lww.com)
  • The administration of general anesthesia in operative procedures was publicly demonstrated by William Thomas Green Morton (1819-1868) in Boston, October 1846 as the first successful practice of its kind. (wikipedia.org)
  • General anaesthesia has many purposes, including: Analgesia (loss of response to pain) Amnesia (loss of memory) Immobility (loss of motor reflexes) Hypnosis (unconsciousness) Paralysis (skeletal muscle relaxation) The biochemical mechanism of action of general anaesthetics is not well understood. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is usually used to maintain a state of general anesthesia that has been induced with another drug, such as thiopentone or propofol. (wikipedia.org)
  • morphine
  • The development of tolerance to morphine is delayed, and the quality of analgesia can be improved because of the morphine-sparing effect of local anesthetics (3) . (lww.com)
  • In one of these patients, plasma fentanyl concentrations were high (2.22 ng · mL − 1 ), and in the other, plasma concentrations were low (0.645 ng · mL − 1 ), but the patient had required relatively large amounts of morphine via a patient-controlled analgesia device (2) . (lww.com)
  • Measures
  • For someone who has flat feet, wearing proper orthotic inserts and replacing them as often as recommended are also important preventive measures. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reports from anesthesiologists and surgeons cite proper selection, inspection, and maintenance of equipment as important safety measures. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • 2 from the Vanderbilt University have applied this principle in a research report in the current edition of Anesthesia & Analgesia in an attempt to use rank ordering by initial postanesthesia recovery unit NRS pain scores, as collected by nurses in a clinical setting, to compare supervising anesthesiologists when adjusted for confounding factors.

  • tidal
  • The initial article by Sellick was based on a small sample size at a time when high tidal volumes, head-down positioning and barbiturate anesthesia were the rule. (wikipedia.org)
  • practice
  • In the practice of obstetric anesthesia, John Snow greatly differed from Simpson in that Snow emphasized proper quantity measurements and the delay of administration until the second stage of labor commenced. (wikipedia.org)
  • physiological
  • 11 This makes sleep of enormous relevance to anesthesiologists, as these state-related physiological changes are also present during anesthesia. (lww.com)
  • concentration
  • In addition to poor-quality study designs, the studies varied in many aspects, including concentration and frequency of N 2 O use, use of additional methods of analgesia, and type and timing of assessments. (lww.com)
  • Thus
  • Thus the advent of obstetric anesthesia facilitated the use of instruments during delivery as obstetricians were afforded greater scope in terms of these materials. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus, sanitation is very important, and only farm staff should have access to the insects. (wikipedia.org)
  • anaesthetist
  • In 1961 Brian Arthur Sellick (1918-1996), an anaesthetist, published the paper Cricoid pressure to control regurgitation of stomach contents during induction of anesthesia-preliminary communication, describing the application of cricoid pressure for the prevention of regurgitation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thorough and accurate answering of the questions is important so that the anaesthetist can select the proper drugs and procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • The article clearly states that a high resolution electronic version of the data collected during anesthesia is created by the AIS in addition to the printed version placed in the patient's medical record. (lww.com)
  • Robert Nathan Allen of the pro-entomophagy organization Little Herds feels that the welfare of insects is important, though he believes well managed farms can maintain high standards of care. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • Furthermore, it is important to appreciate the potential for sleep to potentiate the effects on breathing of drugs that depress ventilatory drive. (lww.com)
  • generally
  • John Snow was responsible for anesthetizing the Queen and is also attributed for influencing public and medical opinions on obstetric anesthesia through his various recorded experiences Though the birth of the Queen's 8th child Prince Leopold on April 7, 1853 was not generally publicized, the London social elite were aware of the use of chloroform in this delivery and found it appealing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adequate
  • Insects are poikilothermic, but maintaining an adequate temperature range remains important. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adequate space and nutrition are important to prevent this. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because wear on the hip joint traces to the structures that support it (the posture of the legs, and ultimately, the feet), proper fitting shoes with adequate support are important to preventing GTPS. (wikipedia.org)
  • safety
