PURPOSE: In neonates, the course of illness is often unpredictable and symptom assessment is difficult. This is even truer at the end of life (EOL). Time to death can take minutes to days, and ongoing management of the infant is needed during the time between discontinuation of life-sustaining treatment and death to ensure that the infant remains free of pain and suffering. The symptoms experienced by neonates as they die, as well as best ways to treat those symptoms, are understudied...

AIM: To evaluate the impact of bispectral index (BIS) monitoring on the consumption of propofol and recovery from anesthesia compared to the standard clinical practice in children. BACKGROUND: Titrating propofol administration using BIS reduces its requirement and shortens the recovery from anesthesia in adults. However, there is still mixed evidence for utility of anesthesia depth monitors in reducing anesthesia requirement in children. METHODS/MATERIALS: A prospective randomized study was conducted in 50 ASA I children of 2-12 years, randomly assigned into standard practice (SP) or BIS group...

OBJECTIVES: Use of midazolam and ketamine lowers the induction dose of propofol (co-induction) producing hemodynamic stability. BACKGROUND: Large doses of propofol needed for induction and laryngeal mask (LM) insertion in children may be associated with hemodynamic and respiratory effects. Co-induction has the advantage of reducing dose and therefore maintaining hemodynamic stability. AIM: To examine the effect of co-induction on hemodynamics, LM insertion and recovery in children...

BACKGROUND: It has been reported that ropivacaine produces vasoconstriction in contrast to vasodilation produced by bupivacaine. It is possible that additives to ropivacaine can provide further analgesic advantages compared with bupivacaine. We thus evaluated whether the addition of fentanyl to ropivacaine prolonged the duration of analgesia after a single shot caudal block. METHODS: A total of 36 children undergoing surgical procedures below the umbilicus were randomly allocated to one of two groups: Group F received ropivacaine 0...

Few studies exist of using remifentanil and intravenous ketamine for anaesthetic induction in paediatric day case anaesthesia. Therefore, we studied 75 unpremedicated ASA I-II children (age 1-7 years) who were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to receive either remifentanil (1 microgram/kg), ketamine (0.7 mg/kg) or placebo before the anaesthetic induction. Anaesthesia was induced with propofol and maintained with O2-N2O-sevoflurane. Induction characteristics, recovery times and the need for postoperative analgesia were evaluated...

UNLABELLED: Children undergoing placement of bilateral myringotomy tubes (BMT) often exhibit pain-related behavior (agitation) in the postanesthesia care unit. We compared the emergence and recovery profiles of pediatric patients who received sevoflurane with or without supplementary intranasal fentanyl for BMT surgery. By using a prospective, double-blinded design, 150 children 6 mo to 5 yr of age, scheduled for routine BMT surgery, were anesthetized with sevoflurane (2%-3%) in a 60% N(2)O/O(2) gas mixture...

BACKGROUND: Corrective strabismus surgery is associated with moderate pain and a very high incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Ketorolac tromethamine, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, is a popular analgesic in adults. There are only limited published data on the use of intravenous ketorolac for paediatric analgesia perioperatively. This study evaluated and compared the emetic and analgesic effect of ketorolac with pethidine and its suitability for this kind of surgery...
