This randomized, crossover sham controlled trial with sham intended to study the effect of electrical stimulation on peripheral nerve (spinal accessory nerve) with acupuncture needle in healthy subjects aims to access the effect o electrical stimulation of accessory spinal nerve in cortical activation, muscular perfusion and autonomic response in healthy subjects. Participants will be assessed through measure changes in cortical activation, local muscular peripheral perfusion and autonomic responses before and after intervention and intervention-sham, and crossed after a period of wash-out. The design aims to contribute to assessment of one electroacupuncture's techniques by measuring some of the physiological effects caused by peripheral stimulation.
Sparing the phrenic nerve by administering ultrasound-guided low volume superior trunk block (STB) and interscalene block (ISB) for arthroscopic shoulder surgery (labral repair, stabilization, rotator cuff repair).
This study aims to explore patient, support person, and health care providers' experience and satisfaction with social support in the abortion procedure room. Although some providers do allow a support person in the abortion procedure room, no study has formally examined the effects of this practice. If this study demonstrates higher patient satisfaction and lower perceptions of pain and anxiety levels in patients who have social support in the in-clinic abortion procedure room, this could change standard procedures in the in-clinic abortion procedure room, allowing for more positive patient experiences.
The investigator's are conducting a randomized, blinded study to determine if the extra-capsular local infiltration analgesic (LIA) administration of 20ml 0.25% bupivacaine-epinephrine can improve the postoperative pain management of hip arthroscopy patients. Participants will be randomly assigned to the LIA group or non-LIA group prior to surgery. Participants, anesthesiologists and PACU nurses will be blinded to group assignment, however the surgeon administering the LIA will be unblinded.
The literature regarding analgesic modalities, their combinations and routes of administrations for patients with pain related to renal colic is expanding. NSAID's (IV ketorolac) and opioids (morphine) constitutes the mainstay of treatment of renal colic either alone or in combinations. Despite their synergism and analgesic superiority when administered together, both classes of these medications possess a set of unfavorable side effects that limit their use. Emerging data of the use of IV lidocaine for patients with renal colic demonstrated good analgesic efficacy and safety profile. However, none of the trials directly compared lidocaine to ketorolac or the combination of both as viable options in patients unable to tolerate or to have serious contraindications to opioids. We designed a double-blinded, randomized, controlled trial to evaluate analgesic efficacy, safety and feasibility of non-opioid analgesics and their combinations in patients with renal colic. The hypothesis and proposed study will try to determine if a combination of IV lidocaine and reduced dose of IV ketorolac is superior to either drug alone and if this non-opioid analgesic modality is effective for controlling pain of renal colic origin.
The objectives of this work are threefold: 1. To evaluate the analgesic efficacy of CWI in women discharged within 23 hours of major breast cancer surgery 2. To evaluate objective indices of patient recovery following anaesthesia and surgery in a 23 hour model of care 3. To evaluate patient satisfaction with their care pathway
To study effects Quell has on opioid consumption and pain relief in patients with cancer.
one measurement of pain threshold in high altitude and in low altitude using pressure algometer and Situational pain scale.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether bilateral infraorbital and infratrochlear nerve block in patients undergoing septorhinoplasty are effective in preventing emergence agitation.
Postoperative pain control is required after major abdominal surgery, including laparoscopic colorectal surgery. Intravenous oxycodone is widely used for postoperative acute pain control mainly in Europe. The aim of this study is to evaluate the optimal dose of intravenous oxycodone for pain control after laparoscopic colorectal surgery in Korean.
