Effects of two doses of dexmedetomidine premedication on the hemodynamic response to laryngoscopy & pneumoperitoneum in patients undergoing laparoscopic nephrectomy under general anesthesia – A comparative study

Airway management is a fundamental aspect of anesthesia practice and emergency and critical care medicine. Endotracheal intubation has a potential to induce highly noxious stimuli to the patient and therefore constitutes a period of extreme hemodynamic stress. Dexmedetomidine has gained popularity in providing stable hemodynamics during laryngoscopy, with significant post-operative analgesia and sedation in patients … Read more
