NCT ID: NCT03121976 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

A Comparison of US and Evoked Motor Response-guided Placement of Continuous Femoral Nerve Block Following TKA

Start date: January 2, 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to determine which technique for catheter placement in continuous femoral nerve block (FNB) is most successful - guidance with (1) ultrasound or (2) nerve stimulation and ultrasound. Sensory and motor assessment scores will be obtained post-FNB. Patient controlled analgesia and opiate consumption is also recorded along with pain scores for the first 48 hour post-FNB.

NCT ID: NCT03103360 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Pupillary Pain Index and Reaction to Skin Incision

Start date: May 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

During routine general anesthesia (not standardized, left to the discretion of the attending anesthesiologist), pupillary pain index was measured one minute before skin incision. Then, variations in heart rate, blood pressure and bispectral index during the three minutes following skin incision were recorded, as well as the occurrence of movements.

NCT ID: NCT03098212 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Aromatherapy for Reducing Labor Pain

Start date: March 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Pregnant women who eligible with inclusion criteria are random to two groups. Aromatherapy group will receive the aromatherapy during labor along with standard pain control. Non-aromatherapy group will receive standard pain control during labor

NCT ID: NCT03089736 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Pain Related to Head and Neck Cancer (HNC); Implementation and Evaluation of Self-care Measure Due to the Same Illness

HNC
Start date: January 1, 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of individual education and individual self-care measures on pain intensity, perceived health, mood and sleep during and after treatment with radiotherapy for head and neck cancer.

NCT ID: NCT03082001 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Sucrose to Reduce Pain During Initiation of Venipuncture in Extremely Low Birth Weight Babies

Start date: January 1, 2011
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Newborn infants in the neonatal intensive care nursery experience multiple, painful tissue damaging procedures daily. Preterm especially extremely low birth weights and critically ill newborns admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) undergo repeated skin-breaking procedures that are necessary for their survival. Sucrose is the accepted clinical standard nonpharmacological intervention for managing acute procedural pain for these infants. However its role in extremely low birth weight infants still need to be addressed. The exact dose and concentration of oral sucrose is still not clear. When a Medline search was carried out to evaluate the role of two different concentrations (12% vs 24%) of oral sucrose in reducing pain in extremely low birth weight babies, very limited data was available. Cochrane Systemic Review also indicated that specific attention to the efficacy and safety of sucrose administration in extremely low birth weight preterm infants needs to be further investigated. More so, no work on this aspect was identified from the Indian subcontinent. Hence, the current study was planned with an aim to study the effects of 12% and 24% oral sucrose in extremely low birth weight infants during initiation of venipuncture and also study the side effects if any associated with these concentrations. This is a preliminary work on this topic, the results would therefore need to be interpreted with caution. However, the findings and the study design of this work will provide suitable platform for future well powered studies on this population.

NCT ID: NCT03064178 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Use of Pain Medication Following Periodontal Procedures

Start date: May 10, 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This study had the following aims: i. to determine the relationship between anticipated pain and actual pain experienced following periodontal surgery; and ii. determine the factors that predict the amount of pain and the amount of pain medication use following periodontal surgery. It was hypothesized that experienced pain will be significantly less than anticipated pain. It was also hypothesized that the following factors will affect pain experienced: sex, type of surgery, nervousness, anticipated pain, sedation, age, smoking status, supplement use and pain pill usage. It was hypothesized that the following factors will affect pain pill usage: sex, type of surgery, nervousness, anticipated pain, sedation, age, smoking status, supplement use, and actual pain.

NCT ID: NCT03056703 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Bioequivalence of Single Dose Fast Release Aspirin (1000 mg) Tablet Versus Single Dose of Two 500 mg Fast Release Aspirin Tablets

Mille
Start date: February 2014
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

The primary objective of this study is to compare the bioavailability of a single dose of a new 1000 mg fast release ASA (acetylsalicylic acid) tablet with that of two tablets of a commercially available 500 mg fast release tablet and to test for bioequivalence of the new versus the commercial product in healthy adult subjects.

NCT ID: NCT03046225 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation After Total Knee Arthroplasty.

Start date: May 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) consists of a surgical replacement of this joint by a prosthesis, and it is mainly carried out in cases of knee osteoarthrosis. In the postoperative period of TKA, the pain is intense and limits the mobility of patients, so the analgesia is one of the goals of the physical therapy. One of the alternatives available for pain management is the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), characterized by the application of an electric pulsed current through electrodes positioned on the skin. Therefore, the present study aims to evaluate the acute effects of TENS associated with conventional physical therapy compared with conventional physical therapy on the pain level, knee range of motion and administration of morphine in the rehabilitation of patients after TKA.

NCT ID: NCT03046212 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation After Total Hip Arthroplasty

Start date: May 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is characterized by the application of an electric pulsed current through electrodes positioned on the skin. It can be an alternative for pain management after surgery for total hip arthroplasty (THA), since it is a safe and cost-effective therapeutic tool, allowing the patient to move early due to pain relief. Therefore, the study aims to evaluate the acute effects of TENS associated with standard physical therapy compared with standard physical therapy on the intensity of pain, hip range of motion and morphine consumption in the rehabilitation of patients after THA.

NCT ID: NCT03034681 Completed - Pain Clinical Trials

Lumbosciatic Syndrome: Vojta Therapy vs. TENS

Start date: January 2011
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This pilot "pre-post" quasi-experimental study evaluates for the first time the effectiveness of Vojta Therapy in treating lumbosciatic and compares it with the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) procedure. Patients who agree will be distributed alternately in order of arrival to a Physiotherapy Unit, in such a way that half of the sample will be treated using TENS and the other half with Vojta.
