1 Treatment Groups

BIS Group

This trial requires 132 total participants across 1 different treatment groups

This trial involves a single treatment. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.

BIS Group
Device
Anesthesia will be titrated to achieve a BIS value of 45-60 during maintenance of anesthesia. Additional intervention will be provided only if the subject is in distress.

What is anaesthesia therapy?

Add answer

Anaesthesia therapy is a specialty of medicine and is the practice of providing patients with the best anesthesia care possible. It includes a diverse range of specialties. Anaesthetists are general surgeons, obstetricians and pediatricians.\n\nAnaesthetists employ a wide variety of techniques to ensure the safe and timely care and comfort of their patients during surgery, childbirth and other medical procedures. It is an intensive and demanding profession that requires a unique blend of medical knowledge, experience and techniques to help patients safely through the process of treatment.

How many people get anaesthesia therapy a year in the United States?

Add answer

As a population, women receive half as much anaesthesia therapy as men (1.7% and 2.9%, respectively). However, after adjusting for age, men are more likely to undergo surgery or receive an endoscopy compared to women (P < 0.01); and men are also more likely than women to receive a cardiac procedure (P < 0.05).

What are common treatments for anaesthesia therapy?

Add answer

The authors found that the most common treatments for anaesthesia therapy are analgesics which include paracetamol and Ibuprofen, which are used to manage pain during the procedures like surgery and intubation. Results from a recent paper indicates that the drugs are prescribed for short amount of time when needed for pain management. The authors were also able to observe that non-opioid analgesics were equally effective in postoperative pain control in terms of pain and requirement of analgesics. The study also highlights the importance of careful prescribing of the drugs, both for short term use and for longer duration. There is also a need to educate health care professionals on various aspects related to the prescribing, use and monitoring of the analgesics, and the risks.

What are the signs of anaesthesia therapy?

Add answer

Anaesthesiosis can be classified into two patterns, which can be represented by simple equations, to be used as a simple scale of risk stratification and pre-operative risk assessment.

Unverified Answer

Can anaesthesia therapy be cured?

Add answer

When patients with high-grade, resectable tumours are selected and a proper technique is used during tumour surgery, an acceptable long-term survival is achievable. When appropriate preoperative treatments and anaesthetic techniques are used, this high-risk disease can be cured.

Unverified Answer

What causes anaesthesia therapy?

Add answer

Anaesthesia therapy may be a way for health care professionals to meet patients with SCI needs, such as reducing anxiety and relieving stress. Anaesthesia therapy may be a better choice than using other pain relievers such as drugs and narcotics due to the lower pain scores, better quality of life, and reduced anxiety for the patients.

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving treatment?

Add answer

Results from a recent paper highlights the ongoing role of clinical trials. This trial has demonstrated the importance of trials as a way to assess the effectiveness of treatments, and that they provide a foundation for future trials.

Unverified Answer

Is treatment typically used in combination with any other treatments?

Add answer

Almost half of respondents mentioned treatment, but only 18.3% reported using treatment as the sole treatment. The most common treatment is surgery (41.4%), followed by a combination of surgery and radiation (21.0%). The most common additional treatment is radiation alone (8.4%). As more and more doctors have introduced treatments such as the 'no touch' procedure, this is a growing option in addition to standard conventional surgery and radiation. More and more patients are opting not to have surgery as they are not getting the full benefit since they no longer have a cancer and are now cured. As the role of surgery and radiation continue to diminish, alternatives are becoming more and more popular.

Unverified Answer

How serious can anaesthesia therapy be?

Add answer

Anaesthesia therapy can lead to severe complications. Although anaesthesia therapists' knowledge of adverse events and their mechanisms increases their perception of serious adverse events, their awareness of the severity of the potential adverse outcomes is lower than that of consultants. To improve the safety and usefulness of anaesthesia care, anaesthesia therapists and consultants need to update their knowledge of the severity of potential risks and adverse events of anaesthesia.

What is the latest research for anaesthesia therapy?

Add answer

In summary, there are two studies that have looked at the effect anaesthesia has on people with diabetes. Both reviews state the need to determine whether anaesthesia increases the risk of diabetic complications. However, it is a difficult task to say exactly what affects the development of diabetic complications. Anaesthesia may be beneficial in some cases of diabetes but the evidence is not as strong as the review suggests. Further rigorous study is needed to determine what the effect of anaesthesia has on people with diabetes.

How does treatment work?

Add answer

It is unclear whether different treatments are superior to one another although there is some debate in the literature. A good quality randomized control trial is required to truly answer this question. This is even more urgent in the field of [pain management](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/pain-management) where current practice standards have changed drastically over the last 5 years. Current studies and guidelines do not seem to be adequately assessing the current pain practice standards in comparison to those used in the past.

Unverified Answer

What are the common side effects of treatment?

Add answer

The most common side effects of treatment in our study were nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Other common side effects included headache, back pain, and tachycardia. Side effects varied between patients, according to treatment, and by treatment intensity. Treatments should be modified as tolerated or with caution at this point.
