There are about 248 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Tunisia. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
monocentric randomized controlled trial starting from Mars 2017, recruitment is still ongoing. Patients aged between 0-45 days needing mechanical ventilation (MV) with tracheal intubation were included random assignation in two groups for post-extubation management: Group Optiflow (GO) for patients receiving High Flow Nasal Cannula Oxygen Therapy HNFC and Control Group (CG) for conventional treatment. Patients were evaluated during the first 72h following extubation. Primary endpoint was the incidence of reintubation. Secondary endpoints were incidence of post-extubation respiratory failure, time to reintubate and weaning time from oxygen. Respiratory and hemodynamic parameters were assessed and compared between the two groups upon extubation, after 2 hours (H2), at H6, H12, H24, H36, H48 and H72. Length of stay (LOS) and mortality were also estimated.
Prospective trial including full term parturients scheduled for a cesarean section under spinal anesthesia. patients are being randomly assigned into 2 groups: LE group: will be positioned in 15° left tilt with leg elevation with a 30cm height pillow under the heels, this position will be hold after spinal anesthesia until fetal extraction. Control group: will be positioned in supine with 15° left tilt. the 2 groups will receive a 10ml/kg of crystalloid co-load intravenously, and the spinal anesthesia will be performed in sitting position with the same dose of Bupivacain, morphine and sufentanil.
The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the quality of life in patients with congenital afibrinogenemia using the Haemo-QoL SF for kids and the Haem-A-QoL for adult patients.
This trial enrolled all the adult patients who were mechanically ventilated for more than 48 hours and met all creteria for extubation. Patients who needed reintubation for upper aiway obstruction, neurological or hemodynamic alteration were excluded. The diaphragm ultrasound was performed during spontaneous breathing test or pressure support ventilation trial measuring the dipahragmatic excursion (DE) and the diaphragm thickening fraction (DTF) whithin 24 hours before extubation.
The purpose of this program is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in participants with Crohn's disease.
: Pain modulation is very important after operation, particularly for women who undergo caesarean section. A pain-free postoperative period is essential following a caesarean section so new mothers may care for and bond with their neonates. The consequences of the improper pain management which raise the healthcare costs and prolong the recovery process. Intrathecal adjuvants are often administered during this procedure to provide significant analgesia, but they may also have bothersome side effects. Intrathecal midazolam and magnesium sulfate produces effective postoperative analgesia with no significant side effects. Objectives: This prospective, randomized, double-blind study was designed to compare the analgesic efficacy and safety of intrathecal midazolam vs. Magnesium sulfate vs plain bupivacaine as an adjunct to bupivacaine in pregnancy patients scheduled for elective caesarean section.
This study assess whether a procalcitonin guided antibiotic therapy can reduce significantly unnecessary antibiotic prescription during severe exacerbation of COPD requiring mechanical ventilation without compromising patients' outcome. The first group of patients will receive systematically empiric antibiotic therapy and the second group will receive antibiotics only if procalcitonin value is at or greater than 0.25 ng/ml.
To investigate changes in the concentration of glucose, lactate, pyruvate and glycerol in the extracellular fluid of the skeletal muscle following Dexmedetomidine administration in patients with septic shock.
Subarachnoid morphine (SAM) is the gold standard for treating postoperative pain after cesarean delivery (CD) but it has undesirable side effects, that's why the aim of our study is to identify whether ultrasound-guided Quadratus lumborum block type 3, a new regional anesthetic technique that blocks the abdominal wall neural afferents, can provide at the same time better postoperative analgesia after CD with less side effects
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the cardiac output changes after an intravenous bolus of ephedrine, phenylephrine, ondansetron or norepinephrine during a spinal anesthetic for a cesarean delivery. For elective cesarean delivery, all participants will receive spinal anesthesia with a local anesthetic and sufentanil. This study includes 120 pregnant women. Patients will be randomly assigned according to a computer generated system to be in one of four groups.
