Patients were divided into two groups according to the induction method that would be used by tossing a coin for each patient; the group in which sevoflurane and [N.sub.2]O would be used in combination (group SA, n=44) and the group that only sevoflurane would be utilized (group S, n=40).
The subjects were submitted to the hypnotic trance using the Bernheim induction method (7).
The second proof is based on the mathematical induction method.
This study investigated the efficiency of wireless power transmission system using magnetic induction method. We confirmed the efficiency of ECG sensor power transmission through computer modeling and applied it to an animal model using a rat to check the applicability of the human body using a magnetic induction wireless power transmission system.
Meanwhile, the self-reported data indicated that the induction method could effectively induce the target mood.
Some studies have stated that different concentrations (4%, 6%, and 8%) of sevoflurane induction are well tolerated by patients, it is practical and reliable, ensures hemodynamic stability, and is an alternative induction method to i.v.
The main differences between our study and the above one were the OA induction method and the duration of the treatment.
During the last 15 years the concept of cervical ripening or priming has gained momentum and involves treatment to render the cervix more favorable followed by a formal induction method. Cervical ripening is an importan1 pre-requisite of labor induction.
In multigravida cases Prostaglandin [E.sub.2] gel induction is more effective, simple, safe, with minimal maternal and neonatal side effects and with less cesarean section rate, with less need of augmentation as compared with Foleys catheter induction method. But where cost-factor is important in that case for multigravida also we can use Foleys catheter induction as it is low cost, safer, reversible method of induction.
Hormone based induction method brings more animals to heat and synchronization helps in planning for uniform management practices and market based production systems.
The adequacy of the induction method used in our study is evident from the MAC value of 1.5 for sevoflurane achieved at the beginning of induction itself.
