The team randomly assigned 157 adults to receive one of two options three minutes prior to the peripheral nerve block
: either an injection of 1-2 mg of midazolam, or a pair of noise-canceling headphones playing Marconi Union's 'Weightless' an eight-minute song, created in collaboration with sound therapists, with carefully arranged harmonies, rhythms, and bass lines designed specifically to calm listeners down.
Ultrasound guided lateral femoral cutaneous nerve block
: Safe and simple anesthesia for harvesting skin graft.
4% Articaine buccal infiltration versus 2% lidocaine inferior alveolar nerve block
for emergency root canal treatment in mandibular molars with irreversible pulpitis: a randomized clinical study.
Facilitatory effects of perineural dexmedetomidine on neuraxial and peripheral nerve block
: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
such as ileo-inguinal or ileohypogastric, relieve somatic pain, some randomized controlled trials have shown that local anesthetic injection around small incision sites reduces postoperative somatic pain but is inadequate for visceral pain.
Specific nerve blocks
may be used for the management of neuropathic pain and have a beneficial effect on opioid dose reduction.
Results of this study do not support the IO approach to perform a maxillary nerve block
When carrying out root canal treatments, the primary aim of the dentist is to achieve adequate local anesthesia.1 When treating mandibular molars the standard approach to achieve localized numbness is to administer an inferior alveolar nerve block
Currently, lower limb surgeries are mainly anesthetized by general anesthesia, nerve block
and intravertebral anesthesia.8 Although general anesthesia works quickly and allows easy intraoperative management, the postoperative recovery and quality of life of geriatric patients may be severely affected due to considerable changes of hemodynamics, increased sensitivity to anesthetics, decelerated metabolism and cardiovascular stress response.
In more refractory and severe cases, nerve blocks
should be performed.
We found that there was no statistically significant difference between TAP and II-IH blocks in the numeric pain rating score both at rest and at movement for the first postoperative 24 hours, but the II-IH nerve block
significantly reduced total tramadol consumption and prolonged the time for the first analgesic request.
