Propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) is one of the most commonly used intravenous anesthetics. Anesthetics can regulate the inflammatory process; however, the mechanism remains to be fully elucidated. The present study aimed to investigate whether and how propofol affects the inflammatory reaction in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). The expression levels of Toll‑like receptor 4 (TLR4) and cluster of differentiation 14 (CD14) were determined in HUVECs treated with propofol and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) using western blot and reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction analyses...

INTRODUCTION: Metaldehyde self-poisoning in adults is uncommon and, to the best of our knowledge, an episode of super-refractory nonconvulsive status epilepticus (sr-NCSE) following an suicide attempt has not been previously demonstrated. CASE REPORT: A 68-year-old woman was admitted to our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in coma. On neurologic examination, the pupils were reactive, brainstem reflexes were present and plantar responses were flexor bilaterally. Routine laboratory tests were unremarkable...

Accidental awareness during general anaesthesia can arise from a failure to deliver sufficient anaesthetic agent, or from a patient's resistance to an expected sufficient dose of such an agent. Awareness is 'explicit' if the patient is subsequently able to recall the event. We conducted a systematic review into the effect of nitrous oxide used as part of a general anaesthetic on the risk of accidental awareness in people over the age of five years undergoing general anaesthesia for surgery. We included 15 randomised controlled trials, 14 of which, representing a total of 3439 participants, were included in our primary analysis of the frequency of accidental awareness events...

OBJECTIVE: Pain associated with colonoscopy is a major burden for patients. We investigated modifiable factors associated with patient-reported pain during and after colonoscopy. DESIGN: This cross-sectional analysis included database records from 23 centres participating in a population-based colonoscopy screening programme in Poland. Colonoscopies were performed under three sedation modalities: none, benzodiazepine-opioid sedation or propofol sedation. We used Gastronet (a validated tool) to assess patients' pain during and after colonoscopy; pain was scored on a four-point scale (no, little, moderate or severe pain), with moderate to severe defined as painful...

Sedative and analgesic practices in intensive care units (ICUs) are frequently based on anesthesia regimes but do not take account of the important patient related factors. Pharmacologic properties of sedatives and analgesics change when used as continuous infusions in ICU compared to bolus or short-term infusions during anesthesia. In a prospective observational cohort study, we investigated the association between patient related factors and sedatives/analgesics doses in patients on mechanical ventilation (MV) and their association with cessation of sedation/analgesia...

The aim was to examine the effects of recumbency and anaesthesia on distribution of ventilation in beagle dogs using Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). Nine healthy beagle dogs, aging 3.7±1.7 (mean±SD) years and weighing 16.3±1.6 kg, received a series of treatments in a fixed order on a single occasion. Conscious dogs were positioned in right lateral recumbency (RLR) and equipped with 32 EIT electrodes around the thorax. Following five minutes of equilibration, two minutes of EIT recordings were made in each recumbency in the following order: RLR, dorsal (DR), left (LLR) and sternal (SR)...

BACKGROUND: Previous literature has shown that propofol has ideal anesthetic properties for patients undergoing colonoscopy, a common procedure at outpatient surgery centers. However, there is a paucity of information regarding patient satisfaction with propofol. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate patient satisfaction with propofol compared with nonpropofol (fentanyl/midazolam) anesthesia for outpatient colonoscopies. Safety and complications were secondary end points...

Besides its clinical application, the anaesthetic agent propofol is being increasingly misused, mostly by healthcare professionals, and its abuse potential gained worldwide attention after the tragic death of Michael Jackson in 2009. Due to the short duration of its narcotic effects, propofol abuse is especially easy to hide compared with the use of other recreational drugs. However, propofol possesses a very narrow therapeutic window between the desired effect and potentially fatal toxicity, making abuse of the drug extremely dangerous even in experienced physicians...

BACKGROUND: In oxidative stress, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production contributes to cellular dysfunction and initiates the apoptotic cascade. Autophagy is considered the mechanism that decreases ROS concentration and oxidative damage. Propofol shows antioxidant properties, but the mechanisms underlying the effect of propofol preconditioning (PPC) on oxidative injury remain unclear. Therefore, we investigated whether PPC protects against cell damage from hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative stress and influences cellular autophagy...

BACKGROUND: The skin consists of tightly connected keratinocytes, and prevents extensive water loss while simultaneously protecting against the entry of microbial pathogens. Excessive cellular levels of reactive oxygen species can induce cell apoptosis and also damage skin integrity. Propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) has antioxidant properties. In this study, we investigated how propofol influences intracellular autophagy and apoptotic cell death induced by oxidative stress in human keratinocytes...
