161. A tough pill to swallow? The evidence on taking medicine

struggle — for a variety of reasons —to swallow pills. , anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of people in the U.S., regardless of age, have difficulty swallowing a standard-sized pill. Reasons include anxiety about having a pill stuck in their throat, a hypersensitive gag reflex, acid reflux disease or emotional reaction to an illness. Whatever the reasons, there are ways to work though these types of swallowing difficulties. looks at interventions that can help children and adolescents overcome pill

Severe Endobronchial Inflammation Induced by Aspiration of a Ferrous Sulfate Tablet Iron supplements such as ferrous sulfate tablets are usually used to treat iron-deficiency anemia in some elderly patients with primary neurologic disorders or decreased gag reflexes due to stroke, senile dementia, or parkinsonism. While the aspiration of ferrous sulfate is rarely reported, it is a potentially life-threatening condition that can lead to airway necrosis and bronchial stenosis. A detailed history

Since it is difficult to repeat TEE studies frequently, either continuous or frequent recording of TEE videos during the entire study will permit reassessment by the same operator as well as an independent operator. TEE studies are invariably done in a fasting state and under topical anaesthesia of the oropharynx to reduce gag reflex. A mouth gag is needed to prevent biting and damage

As an adult, she developed severe erosion and infection in her knees, hip and spine from failing to shift her weight or turn over in bed known as “Charcot joint.” It is also clear that pain perception can be “turned off” in some instances.

). Connell (2005) would add that each masculine performance is context dependant, and masculinity can be contested at any time and place. Vulnerability in this context is epitomised by the possibility of an ‘unwanted erection,’ a situation in which a man is unable to choose between his ‘public’ and ‘private’ sexual impulses – for many young men, this reflex may represent ‘a glaring failure of privacy’ (Velleman 2001: 39) and a loss of control over their sexuality (something that may also cause them

Remifentanil was maintained at a predetermined Ce during the emergence period.

Pain sensation, gag reflex or vomiting and dyspnea or breathiness were evaluated and graded using a visual analog scale (VAS).A total of 35 patients (77.1% males, 22.9% females) with a median age of 11.3±1.8 years (range, 7-15 years) were analyzed. Group 1 consisted of patients who preferred videolaryngostroboscopy (VLS) and Group 2 consisted of patients who preferred flexible fiberoptic nasopharyngoscopy (FFN). Overall, 28 (80%) of the patients preferred (...) videolaryngostroboscopy (VLS) while 7 (20%) of the patients preferred FFN examination. In these examinations 20 patients (57.1%) felt pain, 17 (48.6%) felt irritation, 5 (14.3%) had gag reflex, and 2 (5.7%) had dyspnea. According to this data, the VLS (VAS) scores regarding gag reflex (p=0.017) and dyspnea domains (p=0.022) of the group who preferred FFL were statistically higher than those of the VLS group. No statistically significant difference was determined between the genders in respect of the VLS and FFL

A comparison to facilitate insertion of the laryngeal mask: term of recovery and postoperative nausea and vomiting after anesthesia with propofol- atracurium and thiopental-atracurium. Laryngeal mask is a supraglothic instrument for ventilation of patients who are under anesthesia. Insertion of laryngeal mask requires maintaining sufficient depth of anesthesia to avoid airway reflex (gagging, coughing and spasms). The present study investigated two techniques of anesthesia with propofol (...) -atracurium and thiopental-atracurium to facilitate insertion of the laryngeal mask, term of recovery and postoperative nausea and vomiting. In this prospective, randomized and double-blinded clinical trial, 224 patients undergoing elective laparoscopic class ASA one and two were studied.  Patients were divided into two groups of 112 patients - one group with propofol anesthetic and thiopental-atracurium.

Meanwhile, the following were not predictive for extubation failure: sex, secretion volume, coughing upon suctioning, and the inability to follow one command among showing two fingers, wiggling the toes, or coughing on command. Additionally, some traditional weaning parameters were shown to poorly predict extubation failure in neurocritical patients.Besides pneumonia, atelectasis, and the duration of mechanical ventilation, other factors (...) that should be taken into consideration in the prediction of extubation failure when neurocritical patients are weaned from tracheal intubation include neurologic abilities (Glasgow Coma Scale score and following commands), the secretion texture, and the presence of a gag reflex.

178. Bupivacaine Lozenge Compared with Lidocaine Spray as Topical Pharyngeal Anesthetic before Unsedated Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Randomized, Controlled Trial. (PubMed)

Bupivacaine Lozenge Compared with Lidocaine Spray as Topical Pharyngeal Anesthetic before Unsedated Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Randomized, Controlled Trial. Unsedated upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE) can induce patient discomfort, mainly due to a strong gag reflex. The aim was to assess the effect of a bupivacaine lozenge as topical pharyngeal anesthetic compared with standard treatment with a lidocaine spray before UGE. Ninety-nine adult outpatients undergoing unsedated (...) diagnostic UGE were randomized to receive either a bupivacaine lozenge (L-group, n = 51) or lidocaine spray (S-group, n = 42). Primary objective was assessment of patient discomfort including acceptance of the gag reflex during UGE. The L-group assessed the discomfort significantly lower on a visual analog scale compared with the S-group (P = 0.02). There was also a significant difference in the four-point scale assessment of the gag reflex (P = 0.03). It was evaluated as acceptable by 49% in the L-group

180. The effect of chewing lidocaine soaked gauze on intubation conditions during awake videolaryngoscopy: a randomised controlled trial in the morbidly obese. (PubMed)

The effect of chewing lidocaine soaked gauze on intubation conditions during awake videolaryngoscopy: a randomised controlled trial in the morbidly obese. The increasing utilisation of the videolaryngoscope for awake tracheal intubation requires development and assessment of methods to decrease the gag reflex. We hypothesised that chewing gauze soaked with lidocaine would decrease the gag reflex during awake videolaryngoscope tracheal intubation. Twenty four morbidly obese patients assessed (...) as having a potential difficult tracheal intubation were randomised to chew gauze soaked with 20 ml of 2% lidocaine or saline for 3 minutes. All patients then received 20 ml of aerosolised 2% lidocaine and underwent awake videolaryngoscope assisted tracheal intubation. Gagging scores, heart rate and blood pressure were assessed when best laryngeal view was obtained, when the tracheal tube was positioned at the cords, and when the tube was advanced into the trachea. In addition, serum lidocaine levels
