Success Rates Of Turning Breech Babies Increased By Anesthesia, Delivery Costs Reduced
Source: Pain / Anesthetics News From Medical News Today [2013.04.22]
When a baby is in the breech position at the end of pregnancy, obstetricians can sometimes turn the baby head-down to enable a safer vaginal birth. In the past, women were not given anesthesia during the turning procedure, which requires the physician to push on the woman's abdomen while monitoring the baby with ultrasound...

Propofol sedation alone or in combination with pharyngeal lidocaine anesthesia for routine upper GI endoscopy: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, non-inferiority trial. [2011.12]
BACKGROUND: In patients undergoing routine upper EGD, propofol is increasingly used without pharyngeal anesthesia because of its excellent sedative properties. It is unclear whether this practice is non-inferior in regard to ease of endoscopic intubation and patient comfort. OBJECTIVE: To assess the relevance of local pharyngeal anesthesia regarding the ease of EGD performance in patients sedated with propofol as monotherapy... CONCLUSION: Topical pharyngeal anesthesia reduces the gag reflex in patients sedated with propofol even though it does not seem to have an influence on the ease of the procedure and on patient or endoscopist satisfaction in adequately sedated patients.

Clinical Trials Related to Laryng-O-Jet (Lidocaine Topical)
Comparison of the Total Dose and Efficacy of Two Lidocaine Concentrations Needed for Cutaneous Surgery Local Anesthesia [Completed]
The purpose of the study will be to demonstrate whether Mohs micrographic surgery can be
performed with a lower total dose of local anesthesia (and greater patient safety) when using
0. 5% lidocaine with 1: 200,000 epinephrine versus 1% lidocaine with 1: 100,000 epinephrine.
J-Tip® Jet Injection of 1% Buffered Lidocaine or Saline Versus 4% Lidocaine Cream Before Venipuncture or IV Insertion [Not yet recruiting]
To measure and compare pain associated with venipuncture and peripheral intravenous catheter
insertion among pediatric emergency department patients randomized to treatment with one of
three different pain-reduction strategies: J-Tip® jet injection of 1% buffered lidocaine,
J-Tip® jet injection of sterile saline, or application of 4% lidocaine topical cream. The
investigators hypothesize that J-Tip® jet injection of 1% buffered lidocaine will provide
superior local anesthesia compared to saline or lidocaine cream.
Lidocaine and Ketamine in Abdominal Surgery [Recruiting]
This study is being done to determine if combined infusions of lidocaine and ketamine is
better than a lidocaine or ketamine infusion alone, or to placebo in improving recovery
after abdominal hysterectomy. Participants will be randomized into one of four groups.
Evaluations will be done through walking tests, pain and fatigue questionnaires and blood

Lidocaine Lubricant in Pediatric Urethral Catheterization [Completed]
In Emergency Departments (ED) across the nation there is renewed interest in finding ways to
alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with many of the procedures that children must
undergo. In a policy by the American Academy of Pediatrics, a nationally recognized advocate
for children, physicians are urged to advocate for child-specific research in pain management
and the effective use of pain medication to ensure compassionate and competent management of
pain. (AAP Statement, 2001) Pediatric urethral catheterizations are one such procedure in
which children experience significant pain.(11) In present care, children over 2 months of
age do not routinely receive intervention for urethral catheterization related anxiety and
pain, and, anecdotal reports suggest that most require physical restraint to complete the
procedure. Lidocaine is an anesthetic agent that provides relief from pain during many
commonly performed ED procedures. Intraurethral Lidocaine has been shown to decrease pain
associated with urethral catheter placement in cystograms, however, Lidocaine is not
routinely used for urethral catheterizations in the CHOA ED.
This study aims to investigate the potential use of Lidocaine as an anesthetic agent during
urethral catheterization of children. Recently, two specific studies were performed
investigating the use of Lidocaine to decrease discomfort associated with urethral
catheterization. Using the strengths of both previously published studies, our study will use
Lidocaine both topically and instilled into the urethra. Investigators plan to perform a
prospective three-arm double-blinded randomized clinical trial investigating the
effectiveness of Lidocaine jelly as a analgesic when used as a lubricant for urinary
catheterization. Investigators aim to demonstrate that Lidocaine used as a lubricant
anesthetic for urethral catheterization will provide a safe, time-efficient, and relatively
easy way to decrease pediatric pain in the emergency department setting.
