Appropriate management of analgesia for proximal femoral fractures is a common problem in the emergency department (ED). Side effects from morphine usage such as nausea, vomiting, respiratory depression, sedation, and obstipation are especially pronounced in elderly. Fascia Iliaca Compartment Block (FICB) holds promise as a simple and safe, and effective alternative method to reduce pain. Local anaesthetic injected in the anatomic space underlying the fascia iliaca, spreads to block the nerves traversing it. This regional anaesthesia includes the femoral nerve. Previous studies in the ED showed promise but lacked blinding, involved low numbers of subjects, or did not use ultrasound localisation of the injection site. The latter is becoming common practice. In this randomised placebo controlled trial the FICB with ultrasound localisation of injection of levobupivacaïne will be compared to the FICB with placebo. It aims to prove that less morphine is used in the intervention group. Other research parameters are pain scores and minor adverse events related to morphine use.
This study aims to investigate the use of virtual reality guided mindfulness meditation to reduce the pre and post-operative anxiety and pain of pediatric surgical patients.
This study will investigate whether two clinical tests can be used to diagnose and predict the outcome in patients with lumbar disc herniation undergoing surgery and non-surgery treatment. The two quantitative clinical tests include: electromyographic measurements using Paraspinal Mapping and pain responses using Quantitative Sensory Pain Testing.
The study was designed as a prospective, randomized double-blind placebo controlled trial. According to power analysis in regards of previous studies in the literature with diclofenac sodium, using a total of 144 patients are needed for Power: 80% and Efficacy: 0.05. diclofenac (20 mg) and placebo drugs to be used in the study will be numbered 1 and 2 individually. Patient randomization was performed using random.org in 144 patients. On the day of cystoscopy, the patient randomized according to inclusion criteria will be given a medication package corresponding to the number given in randomization. It will not be known by the staff and cystoscopy will be performed by the physician who does not know which package is an effective drug. Parameters: 1. Visual Pain Score during cystoscopy 2. Cystoscopy comfort - a questionnaire to be filled by the doctor 1. Excellent 2. Very good 3. Good 4. Bad 5. Too bad 3. Cystoscopy: Is it efficient? Not efficient? - Will be answered by the doctor. Post-Op: 1. 1st hour Visual Analog Pain Scale inquiry, dysuria, frequency 2. 24th Hour dysuria, Frequency, A total of 144 patients, we plan to arrive at the end of 1 month.
A study examining the benefits of music therapy on patients, families, and unit staff on acute neurologic or inpatient rehabilitation units.
Acupuncture has emerged in China about 2,000 years ago and is one of the oldest medical procedures in the world. Acupuncture continued to evolve and develop over the centuries, and gradually became one of the standard treatments used in China. Introduced to other regions such as Asia, Europe and the United States. The most extensive use of acupuncture is for pain relief. The aim of this study was to prevent complications due to pain frequently seen in patients who would be treated with endovenous ablation in the postoperative period. In addition, the effect of acupuncture on operative hemodynamics, pain, vascular diameter, postoperative, nausea, vomiting, pain and analgesic needs, IL17 and IL 23.
This study will test the quality of physician care decisions using a patient-simulation based measurement and feedback approach that combines multiple-choice care decisions with real-time, personalized scoring and feedback. The study will also measure the impact of gaming-inspired competition and motivation, including a weekly leaderboard, to improve evidence-based care decisions. In addition, the study the test the impact of CME and MOC credits on participant engagement in the process.
It is generally recognized that pain assessment and management especially in newborns, children and other nonverbal populations is an unmet need. According to the American Medical Association, "the pediatric population is at risk of inadequate pain management, with age-related factors affecting pain management in children. Children are often given minimal or no analgesia for procedures that would routinely be treated aggressively in adults. Although much is now known about pain management in children, it has not been widely or effectively translated into routine clinical practice". These two factors combine to emphasize the necessity for an objective tool to quantify pain and monitor the effectiveness of analgesia, especially during treatments. Further, it is reported that many patients require a combination of treatments, and it is often necessary to test a variety of treatments before the personal match for treatment is found. The method in place to change the care on a subjective basis is difficult, time consuming, and not easily individualized. This pilot study is part of an ongoing effort to develop a method to objectively assess response to specific analgesic interventions. It specifically aims to discern the impact of analgesic interventions on sensory nerve fiber sensitivity in a diverse patient population.
