A retrospective cohort study of predictors and interventions that influence cooperation with mask induction in children.

Juan L Marquez, Ellen Wang, Samuel T Rodriguez, Chloe O'Connell, Farrukh Munshey, Curtis Darling, Ban Tsui, Joseph Caruso, Thomas J Caruso,

BACKGROUND:Uncooperative pediatric mask induction is linked to perioperative anxiety. Although some risk factors for uncooperative inductions have been reported, there are no large cohort studies that identify intrinsic patient characteristics associated with cooperation. AIM:The primary aim was to identify patient characteristics associated with cooperative mask inductions. The secondary aim was ... Read more >>

Mobilization and calibration of the HTC VIVE for virtual reality physical therapy.

Sydney Hemphill, Alan Nguyen, Samuel T Rodriguez, Maria Menendez, Ellen Wang, Kiley Lawrence, Thomas J Caruso,

<h4>Aims</h4>The HTC VIVE virtual reality (VR) system is a potential tool for collecting kinematic data during inpatient and outpatient physical therapy (PT). When validated against research-grade systems, the VIVE has a reported translational error between 1.7 mm-2.0 cm. Our purpose was to portabilize the VIVE for room to room PT and validate ...

Virtual reality during pediatric vascular access: A pragmatic, prospective randomized, controlled trial.

Thomas J Caruso, Alexandria George, Maria Menendez, Elizabeth De Souza, Michael Khoury, Madison N Kist, Samuel T Rodriguez,

<h4>Background</h4>Vascular access is a minor procedure that is associated with reported pain and fear in pediatric patients, often resulting in procedural incompliance. Virtual reality has been shown to be effective in adult populations for reducing pain and anxiety in various medical settings, although large studies are lacking in pediatrics.<h4>Aims</h4>The primary ...

Varying screen size for passive video distraction during induction of anesthesia in low-risk children: A pilot randomized controlled trial.

Samuel T Rodriguez, Olivia Jang, Jessica Maya Hernandez, Alexandria Joseph George, Thomas J Caruso, Laura E Simons,

BACKGROUND:Preoperative anxiety affects up to 65% of children who undergo anesthesia induction and often results in uncooperative behavior. Electronic devices have been used to distract children to reduce anxiety and create a more enjoyable preoperative experience. Few studies have compared the effects of different video delivery systems on preoperative anxiety. ... Read more >>

A Retrospective Review of a Bed-mounted Projection System for Managing Pediatric Preoperative Anxiety.

Thomas J Caruso, Jeremy H Tsui, Ellen Wang, David Scheinker, Paul J Sharek, Christine Cunningham, Samuel T Rodriguez,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Most children undergoing anesthesia experience significant preoperative anxiety. We developed a bedside entertainment and relaxation theater (BERT) as an alternative to midazolam for appropriate patients undergoing anesthesia. The primary aim of this study was to determine if BERT was as effective as midazolam in producing cooperative patients at anesthesia induction. ... Read more >>

Extensive spinal epidural abscess treated with "apical laminectomies" and irrigation of the epidural space: report of 2 cases.

Muhammad M Abd-El-Barr, Wenya Linda Bi, Biji Bahluyen, Samuel T Rodriguez, Michael W Groff, John H Chi,

Spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is a rare but often devastating infection of the epidural space around the spinal cord. When an SEA is widespread, extensive decompression with laminectomy is often impossible, as it may subject the patient to very long operative times, extensive blood loss, and mechanical instability. A technique ... Read more >>
