Obesity increases the risk of prolonged emergence from general anesthesia due to the delayed release of anesthetic agents from body fat. This trial aimed to evaluate the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane along with anesthetic depth monitoring on emergence time from anesthesia in obese patients. Adults with a body mass index ≥ 30 kg·m−2 undergoi...

Background and aims Because the sex difference in outcomes of fracture was incompletely understood, we evaluated the post-fracture complications and mortality of female and male patients. Methods We conducted a nationwide study of 498,586 fracture patients who received inpatient care using Taiwan’s National Health Insurance Research Database 2008–...
Article
Levobupivacaine has been developed as a safer alternative to bupivacaine because of its reduced systemic toxicity. However, the effect of directly delivering levobupivacaine into tracheal smooth muscle has not been adequately explored. We performed this study to determine the in vitro effects of levobupivacaine on isolated rat tracheal smooth muscl...

Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals, as it can express the human brain’s activities and reflect awareness, have been widely used in many research and medical equipment to build a noninvasive monitoring index to the depth of anesthesia (DOA). Bispectral (BIS) index monitor is one of the famous and important indicators for anesthesiologists primarily...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the analgesic properties of levobupivacaine with or without fentanyl for patient-controlled epidural analgesia after Cesarean section in a randomized, double-blinded study. Methods: We enrolled American Society of Anesthesiologists class I/II, full-term pregnant women at National Taiwan Universit...
Article
Although several complications with central venous catheters have been discussed extensively, intravascular migration is uncommon and often goes unrecognized during surgery. We present a case of central venous catheter looping into the left innominate vein after cardiopulmonary bypass during pediatric cardiac surgery. The clinical signs of a lack o...
Article
Background/Purpose Intranasally administered dexmedetomidine, a highly selective α2-adrenoceptor agonist, has been found to an effective premedication in children. However, the effect of delivering dexmedetomidine directly into the tracheal smooth muscle through inhalation has not been adequately explored. The objective of this study was to determi...

The addition of ultra-low-dose naloxone to patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with morphine reduces opioid-related side effects. Nalbuphine, a mixed opioid agonist-antagonist, may be able to attenuate opioid-related side effects. The goal of the present study was to investigate the effect of combined low-dose nalbuphine and morphine in PCA for post...
Article
This case report describes a 61-year-old man who developed reexpansion pulmonary edema (RPE) of the collapsed left lung after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery because of left thoracic empyema, complicated with secondary contralateral pulmonary edema later. The left lung was gently reexpanded after surgery under one-lung ventilation anesthesia f...
