142. Clinical Practice Guidelines for Sustained Neuromuscular Blockade in the Adult Critically Ill Patient

. However, related research in other populations may be extrapolated to the setting of therapeutic hypothermia following cardiac arrest. In an open-label randomized study of 20 patients following hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass, vecuronium (0.1 mg/kg bolus followed by 1 µg·kg –1 ·min –1 for 4 hr) eliminated shivering in 100% of patients, compared with 50% of patients who received meperidine (25 mg every 15 min until no shivering was observed or a total dose of 75 mg was administered) ( p < 0.05 (...) ) ( ). Vecuronium eliminated shivering without lowering systolic blood pressure, as occurred with meperidine ( p < 0.02), and eliminated shivering in the five patients whose shivering was uncontrolled by meperidine. As was noted in nonrandomized studies involving pancuronium for the prevention of shivering in patients following cardiopulmonary bypass ( , ), vecuronium administration was associated with consistent and statistically significant decreases in oxygen consumption and CO 2 production, effects not seen

were divided into three premedication groups as control, Meperidine, and Midazolam. Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was used to measure each subject's anxiety level. Fifteen minutes before the biopsy, 1 mL 0.9% NaCl subcutaneously (sc), 1 mg/kg (max 100 mg) Meperidine sc, or 0.1 mg/kg (max 5 mg) Midazolam intravenously was administered to patients respectively. Then PLB was done with 16 G Menghini needle. The day after, the patients were asked about feelings regarding biopsy.Groups (...) were similar by gender and age. The HADS scores prior to PLB and on visual analog scale (VAS, 1-10 points) score during PLB were similar. In the three groups, 7, 12, and 7 patients, respectively, experienced no pain. Other patients explained pain as mild or moderate or severe. The number of patients who agreed for possible rebiopsy was higher in Meperidine and Midazolam groups than in the control group.Premedication with Meperidine or Midazolam in PLB would improve patients' tolerance, comfort

150. Anaesthetic Agents in Pregnant Women Undergoing Non-Obstetric Surgical or Endoscopic Procedures

was performed during the first trimester of pregnancy. The non- randomized study concluded that regional anaesthesia for laparotomic adnexal mass surgery during pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of preterm labour. However, it is difficult to elucidate the impact of anaesthesia alone on pregnancy outcomes due to the influence of several confounding factors present in the included studies. One evidence-based guideline was identified that recommends meperidine as the preferred agent (...) and lactating women, including recommendations for the use of analgesics and anaesthetic agents. Based on what was classified as very low quality evidence from “two large studies” otherwise undefined, ASGE recommends meperidine as the preferred agent for procedures on pregnant women requiring moderate sedation. They also recommend that deep sedation should be administered by an anaesthesia provider; however, no guidance on specific agents was included in this recommendation. A general procedural

, transdermal buprenorphine, transdermal fentanyl, and oral hydromorphone are the most tolerable opioids in these patients; hydrocodone, oxycodone, and methadone are useful but require careful monitoring; and tramadol, codeine, morphine, and meperidine should be avoided due to risk of accumulation and adverse events. Because older adults with nondialysis chronic kidney disease are at increased risk for adverse events, vigilant monitoring of opioid prescription is critical. Lastly, collaboration among

157. Evaluation of the P-glycoprotein (Abcb1) affinity status of a series of morphine analogs: Comparative study with meperidine analogs to identify opioids with minimal P-glycoprotein interactions (PubMed)

Evaluation of the P-glycoprotein (Abcb1) affinity status of a series of morphine analogs: Comparative study with meperidine analogs to identify opioids with minimal P-glycoprotein interactions One of the major shortcomings of many commonly used opioids is the fact that they are P-gp substrates, which represents a major obstacle towards effective pain management. P-gp can affect opioids' oral absorption, CNS accumulation, systemic clearance, antinociceptive activity, and tolerance development (...) meperidine analogs. The fold stimulation of the morphine analogs ranged from 1.01 to 1.54 while for the meperidine analogs the fold stimulation ranged from 1.10 to 3.66. From each series (morphine and meperidine analogs) we selected potential candidate opioids that are non-P-gp substrates and conducted in vivo assessments of their antinociceptive effects using P-gp knockout and P-gp competent mice. 6-Desoxymorphine, meperidine and N-phenylbutyl normeperidine did not significantly (p>0.05) stimulate

158. Propofol alone versus propofol in combination with meperidine for sedation during colonoscopy. (PubMed)

Propofol alone versus propofol in combination with meperidine for sedation during colonoscopy. Despite the increasing popularity of propofol for sedation in colonoscopy, the optimal regimen is still controversial. Both propofol alone and propofol in combination with meperidine are frequently used during colonoscopy, but the impact of adding meperidine has not been evaluated. This study aimed to investigate if adding meperidine to propofol offers any advantage in terms of patient tolerance (...) , recovery time, and postcolonoscopy discomforts.Consecutive patients admitted to the physical checkup department of our hospital were randomized to receive either meperidine plus propofol (combination group, n=100) or propofol alone (propofol group, n=100) for sedated colonoscopy. The patients' tolerance and postcolonoscopy discomforts (pain, bloating, dizziness, and nausea/vomiting) were assessed with a 0-10 visual analog scale. The recovery times were assessed with 5-minute and 10-minute Aldrete

Meperidine versus valethamate bromide in shortening the duration of active labor. To compare the efficacy and safety of meperidine hydrochloride and valethamate bromide against placebo in shortening the duration of active labor.We randomly assigned 160 nulliparous women with a singleton pregnancy at term who needed induction of labor to one of 3 treatments: 50 mg of meperidine (n=53), 16 mg of valethamate bromide (n=53), or a normal saline solution as placebo (n=54). All medications were given (...) by slow intravenous infusion. Labor duration was the main outcome measure.The intervals between infusion and complete cervical dilation and between infusion and delivery were significantly reduced (P<0.001 and P<0.01) in the meperidine group (103.0+/-64.5 minutes and 119.8+/-70.2 minutes), in contrast to the placebo group (173.9+/-74.8 minutes and 192.2+/-82.8 minutes). However, differences were not significant between the 2 treatment groups (139.6+/-63.1 minutes and 160.6+/-71.9 minutes), or between
