Ultane (Sevoflurane Inhalation) - Summary

 
 



ULTANE SUMMARY

ULTANE (sevoflurane), volatile liquid for inhalation, a nonflammable and nonexplosive liquid administered by vaporization, is a halogenated general inhalation anesthetic drug.

Sevoflurane is indicated for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia in adult and pediatric patients for inpatient and outpatient surgery.

Sevoflurane should be administered only by persons trained in the administration of general anesthesia. Facilities for maintenance of a patent airway, artificial ventilation, oxygen enrichment, and circulatory resuscitation must be immediately available. Since level of anesthesia may be altered rapidly, only vaporizers producing predictable concentrations of sevoflurane should be used.

Effect of one minimum alveolar concentration sevoflurane with and without fentanyl on hemodynamic response to laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. [2011.10]
BACKGROUND: Drug combinations can be used for optimum obtundation of the hemodynamic response to tracheal intubation. The objective of this trial was to compare the hemodynamic response to laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation after administration of 2 mug/kg fentanyl bolus or a placebo with 2% end tidal sevoflurane at induction of anesthesia... CONCLUSION: Addition of 2 mug fentanyl bolus to 1 MAC sevoflurane anesthesia at induction attenuated the hemodynamic response to a maximum of 15% above baseline values.

Clinical Trials Related to Ultane (Sevoflurane Inhalation)

Compare Pharmaco-economics and Efficacy of Sevoflurane With Low Fresh Gas Flow Balanced Anesthesia, Propofol Target Controlled Infusion Anesthesia and Propofol Induction Sevoflurane Maintenance Anesthesia [Not yet recruiting]
This study is performed to demonstrate that the direct anesthetic costs of a low fresh gas flow balanced sevoflurane anesthesia for elective laparoscopy are less compared to the direct anesthetic costs of a target-controlled infusion anesthesia based on propofol.

Evaluation of Volatile Induction and Maintenance Anesthesia (VIMA) With Sevorane in Adult Patients Required General Anesthesia for Surgery in Terms of Quality of Anesthesia and Its Influence on Cardiovascular System in Common Clinical Practice [Recruiting]
The main objective of this post-marketing observational study (PMOS) is to collect data of using general anesthesia in patients undergoing any surgery for creating local recommendations. These data will be based on the evaluation of volatile induction and maintenance anesthesia (VIMA) with Sevorane (sevoflurane) in adult patients required general anesthesia for surgery in terms of quality of anesthesia, its influence on cardiovascular system in common clinical practice in Kazakhstan

Comparing Desflurane to Sevoflurane for the Effect on Recovery Time in Patients Undergoing Urological Cystoscope Surgery [Recruiting]
This is a single-center, prospective, randomized, double-blind, double-arm trial including 68 subjects scheduled to undergo urological cystoscope surgeries under general anesthesia (GA) with intubation through a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) at The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC). Double blinding will be based on both the subject and the research staff being unaware of which trial arm the subject is randomized into. Eligible subjects that provide voluntary and written informed consent will be included in this study.

Sevoflurane as an Anesthetic During Dilation and Evacuation Procedures [Recruiting]
Sevoflurane is an FDA-approved anesthetic drug commonly used for anesthesia during second trimester abortion procedures. It has a few advantages, including ease of use by the anesthesia provider. However, the literature suggests that when used in doses higher than those used at OHSU and Lovejoy, it is associated with an increase in the risk of bleeding. The investigators study aims to test whether the lower dose used at OHSU and Lovejoy during second trimester abortion procedures causes any difference in blood loss, when compared to similar abortion procedures for which this drug is not used.
