Clinical trials on Anesthesia

Anesthesia Overview

Anesthesia is a medical practice that is essential for performing surgeries and certain procedures without causing pain to the patient. It involves the use of drugs to induce a temporary state of amnesia, analgesia, loss of responsiveness, loss of skeletal muscle reflexes, or decreased stress response, depending on the type of procedure and anesthesia used. The primary goal is to ensure the patient’s comfort and pain-free experience while allowing the surgeon or physician to perform the procedure effectively.

Types of Anesthesia

  • General Anesthesia: This type renders the patient completely unconscious and is typically used for major operations, such as those involving the abdomen, heart, or brain. It affects the entire body and requires advanced airway management.
  • Regional Anesthesia: This type numbs a larger area of the body, allowing the patient to stay awake or sedated without feeling pain in the specific region being operated on. Examples include epidurals for childbirth and nerve blocks for limb surgeries.
  • Local Anesthesia: Used for minor procedures, this type numbs a small, specific area of the body. The patient remains fully conscious and can be applied as a topical application or injection.

Choosing the appropriate type of anesthesia depends on various factors, including the patient’s health, the nature of the surgery, and the expected recovery time. Anesthesiologists play a critical role in this decision-making process, ensuring the safety and comfort of the patient throughout the surgical experience. They monitor the patient’s vital signs and adjust the anesthesia as needed to maintain the desired level of sedation and pain control.

    Assessing surgical outcomes for shoulder surgeries using new therapy

    The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of a drug called Sugammadex given during shoulder surgery to induce muscle relaxation. The main goal is to evaluate whether the use of sugammadex can reduce the likelihood of muscle damage and contribute to faster recovery with less post-operative pain. The study involves documenting surgical procedures using photographs to identify potential muscle damage, and participants will be asked to rate their level of pain and discomfort on a scale of 0 to 10. The hypothesis is that muscle relaxation induced by Sugammadex may lead to more successful surgery, minimizing damage and better postoperative results.
