Summary

The purpose of this research study is to find out if a nerve block called the quadratus lumborum (QL) block can provide pain relief after hip replacement, similar to a lumbar plexus (LP) nerve block that we currently offer patients. There will be two groups in this study: one group will have the QL block placed and the other group will have the LP block placed.

Summary

This study is being done to evaluate the impact that monitored anesthetic care (MAC) versus general endotracheal anesthesia (GETA) has on hospital length of stay, rate of ICU admission, or procedural mortality. Also, we hope to determine if the use of Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) during GETA impacts device success and durability. Adult patients undergoing transfemoral approach TAVR for aortic valve stenosis may be eligible candidates for this study.

Summary

We propose to play the song "Weightless" during epidural placement on an iPhone set to medium volume. The song (all 6 continual parts) is 43 minutes long and will be started just before epidural placement and stopped just after end of procedure. The control group will be expectant mothers who do not have "Weightless" playing during their epidural placement. The goal is to determine if playing "the most relaxing song in the world" helps to reduce laboring parturients anxiety and improve their overall satisfaction with the experience.
