There are about 259 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.
Background: Large doses of propofol needed for induction and laryngeal mask (LM) insertion in children may be associated with hemodynamic sides effects. Co-induction with low doses of ketamine 0.5 mg/ kg has the advantage of reducing dose and therefore maintaining hemodynamic stability. Aim: To examine the effect of co-induction on LM insertion, hemodynamics and recovery in children
BACKGROUND: Spinal anesthesia (SA) induced maternal hypotension is the most frequent and troublesome complication in cesarean section (CS), compromising both maternal and neonatal well-being. Many strategies have been used to prevent its occurrence but no single technique has been confirmed to be completely effective. the investigators hypothesized that ondansetron, a serotonin-receptor-antagonist, could have beneficial effects on maternal hemodynamics during CS under SA. METHODS: In this prospective double-blind placebo-controlled study, one hundred healthy parturients were randomized to receive either 8 mg of intravenous ondansetron (group O) or the same volume of saline (group S), 5 minutes prior to the induction of SA. All women received a coloading volume of 500 ml of saline. Maternal hemodynamics: blood pressure, heart rate and cardiac output (CO) were measured with a non-invasive device based on pulse wave transit time: the esCCO device Nihon Kohden hemodynamic monitor. Ephedrine was administered to treat hypotension (systolic blood pressure less than 80% of baseline).
this study evaluates high flow oxygen therapy in addition to non invasive ventilation (NIV) to treat hypercapnic respiratory failure. Between sessions of NIV, half of participants will have high flow nasal cannula while the others will have standard low flow oxygen therapy.
Many drugs with various mechanisms of action are used for postcaesarean pain relief. Although the response to pain relief is sometimes believed to be individual, it is very important to establish the most effective with the least adverse effects type of oral analgesia for women after caesarean section. Optimal pain control post-caesarean section will benefit not only the mother and her baby, but also a healthcare system. Optimal pain control may shorten the time spent in hospital after caesarean section and, therefore, reduce healthcare costs.
The purpose of this multicenter randomized study is to compare efficacy and safety of dasatinib 50 mg once daily and dasatinib 100 mg once daily in patients with early chronic phase (CP) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)
Purpose: To analyze the effects of Ramadan observance (RO) on pulmonary variables, exercise performance and postural balance in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Methods: Twenty COPD patients (age=72.7 ± 4.1 yr, non-smokers, without cardiac or neuromuscular complications) were evaluated. Tests performed one week before Ramadan (C), and during the second (R-2) and the fourth weeks of Ramadan (R-4) included standard spirometry, a quality of life questionnaire (VQ11), a 6-min walking test (6MWT), measurement of maximal voluntary contraction force of the quadriceps (MVC), Timed Get Up and Go (TUG), Berg Balance Scale (BBS) and Unipedal Stance (UST).
Selected patients will be randomised to either hydrocortisone or prednisolone. Each treatment period is of 14 days. Abnormal clinical symptoms, blood glucose and quality of life will be monitored.
This is a prospective study carried out from 2014 to 2016 including patients aged ≥ 18 years, admitted for isolated chest trauma. Each patient received a nebulization of 10 mg morphine. If Visual Analog Score (VAS) assessed after 10 minutes still> 4, nebulization was repeated every 10 minutes until pain relief. At 30 minutes, VAS> 4 means failure.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable respiratory characterized by airflow obstruction that is not fully reversible. This disease a major cause of mortality worldwide. It is projected to rank the third-leading cause of death in 2020. The objective of this study is to examine the effects of a physical therapy intervention in stable patients with COPD.
Assessment of the effectiveness of Enoxaparin, at a preventive dose, combined with Aspirin treatment versus Aspirin only treatment in reducing placental insufficiency in pregnant women.
