The purpose of this study is to investigate how expectations induced by information given prior to exercise influence the magnitude of exercise-induced hypoalgesia after a 3 min wallsquat exercise in healthy subjects. The study is a double blinded (participant, investigator) randomized controlled trial The results from the study may be of great importance to the understanding of exercise-induced hypoalgesia, and whether the information related to exercise as pain relief can be used in practice for patients with pain. The subjects are randomized to 1 in 3 groups. Hypoalgesia expectation, hyperalgesia expectation, neutral expectation. Each group (besides the neutral group) is given different information of what to expect on pain ratings after a 3 minutes wallsquat.
Evaluate the effect of honey on perineal tears or episiotomies pain associated or not with anterior vulvar tears after vaginal delivery.
Hypothesis: Intravenous administration of Ketorolac 10 mg and 20 mg is as effective as 30 mg in treating renal colic pain in patients presenting to the emergency department
The aim of this study is to validate the Critical-Care Pain Observation Tool (CPOT) in the setting of the Intensive care unit (ICU). Prior to patient recruitment the tool will be translated by the method of translation-back translation by Greek and English native speakers. The tool will be administered to patients who are admitted into the ICU.
The purpose is to investigate whether non-invasive acupuncture - NIA (i.e. acupuncture without needles) will help reduce pain for babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) during their routine weekly eye-exam for Retinopathy of prematurity. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is an eye disease most commonly affecting premature babies born weighing less than 1250 grams. Retinopathy of prematurity occurs because these premature babies require oxygen because of their immature lungs. The oxygen then stimulates the growth of blood vessels in the retina, causing the retina to be detached from the eye, which causes vision impairment. To examine if the vessels grow at the back of the eye, an eye-doctor visits bi-weekly once the baby is 32 weeks corrected age to assess if the blood vessels change. If there is a lot of growth, the eye-doctor would use a laser to treat the eye to prevent further growth. During the bi-weekly eye-exam, the premature infant receives sucrose (a type of sugar) for pain management. The investigator will assess pain a premature babies experience during this exam and found that there are extremely high scores of pain despite sucrose and the investigator believe this pain and stress caused by these procedures could be reduced by adding: Magnetic Acupuncture Also, untreated pain causes stress (lower oxygen levels, higher heart rates), discomfort and poorer long term outcomes. Finding the best treatment and prevention for the pain caused by procedures in the NICU is therefore extremely important for any baby.
Pilot study of an exercise program among patients with all stages of lung cancer examining feasibility and acceptability. Preliminary outcomes include objective measures of physical function, depression, adherence to lung cancer treatments, Quality of Life (QOL), and social support.
All early breast cancer patients are offered adjuvant breast radiation therapy (RT) after breast conserving surgery for an early breast cancer. Breast cancer is heterogeneous, and selected patients have a very low gain from RT, whilst they still have risk of acute and late side effects from RT. This trial will try identify selection criteria for low risk breast cancer patients who can safely omit adjuvant RT without unacceptable high risk of local failure.
Typically, in North America, acupuncture is performed on an individual basis. However, community acupuncture, also known as group acupuncture, is an emerging method of treating patients. Cancer patients, post-treatments were given acupuncture treatments to help alleviate pain, in a two-arm randomized trial.
Justification. Pain control is still an issue for women undergoing second trimester abortion procedures. The investigators propose a randomized controlled double-blinded trial evaluating the use of adjunct gabapentin versus placebo in addition to moderate sedation during D&E. The investigators hypothesize that 600 mg oral gabapentin administered pre-operatively at the time of cervical preparation initiation will improve intra-operative pain control. The investigators also hypothesize that it will improve pre- and post-operative pain, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, and overall satisfaction with pain management during D&E. To test the hypotheses the investigators plan to enroll 130 participants who will be randomized 1 to 1 to receive either 600 mg gabapentin or placebo at the initiation of cervical preparation.
Subcutaneous perfusion is an underused technique, the effectiveness of which has been demonstrated. A number of drugs of different therapeutic classes, including morphine, have a good level of scientific evidence for use by this route. Subcutaneous Acetaminophen injection is being used in some medical centers, mainly in Europe, despite the lack of definite evidence on its efficacy. This study aims to quantify the degree of effectiveness of subcutaneous Acetaminophen infusions for pain or fever in Palliative Care, as well as determining its safety.
