The effects of intranasal dexmedetomidine premedication in children: a systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsIntranasal dexmedetomidine provided more satisfactory sedation at parent separation and reduced the need for rescue analgesics and the incidence of nasal irritation and postoperative nausea and vomiting when compared with other premedication treatments.
ConclusionsOur study results suggest that performing dental treatments under GA can reduce the dental anxiety levels of children with a high number of caries.
In conclusion, social avoidance induced by social defeat stress exposure as juveniles are more persistent than that as adults. These social avoidances are associated with suppression of hippocampal neurogenesis via glucocorticoid receptors. PMID: 29337227 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
One night, while doing our son’s usual bath routine, I saw what looked like a hump on his back. Avery was 6 months old at the time. At first, I thought that it was just something I was imagining, but the hump never went away. In fact, it seemed to get worse. When Avery was 13 months old, he was officially diagnosed with infantile scoliosis, a rare form of scoliosis that occurs in children under 2 years of age. The first hospital we were referred to would not even consider treating Avery until he was at least 18 months, and that was not a guarantee, so after doing some research, we came to Boston Children’s Hosp...
CONCLUSION: Spinal anesthesia does not provide enough analgesia for the patient in a limited frequency of percutaneous nephrolithotomy operations. We could not find statistically significant predictors of insufficient analgesiabased on patients' demographics, stone characteristics or access location.

CONCLUSIONS: We found insufficient evidence to determine whether administration of propofol would improve the quality and quantity of sleep in adults in the ICU. We noted differences in study designs, methodology, comparative agents and illness severity amongst study participants. We did not pool data and we used the GRADE approach to downgrade the certainty of our evidence to very low. PMID: 29308828 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: In our study, 0.3 μg/kg intravenous dexmedetomidine was found to be superior to 0.15 μg/kg group in effectively reducing EA and postoperative pain, without producing adverse effects such as hypotension or bradycardia.
Conclusion The present study showed 27% prevalence of anesthesia emergence delirium in the study population. The incidence of anesthesia emergence delirium was higher in children who had postoperative pain.
