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

Assessment of Bispectral Index Targeted Induction on Haemodynamic Responses to Laryngoscopy and Intubation during General Anaesthesia

Introduction:Laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation (LETI) during general anesthesia can elicit significant haemodynamic responses, potentially posing risks to patients with cardiovascular or cerebrovascular conditions. Ensuring adequate depth of anesthesia during these procedures is crucial for maintaining haemodynamic stability. Additionally, commonly used induction agents like Propofol may cause haemodynamic instability. This study aims to assess the effect … Read more

Comparison of safety and efficacy of Ramosetron and Ondansetron for post-operative nausea and vomiting in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Introduction:Post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a common complication after anesthesia and surgery, leading to distress and potential complications. Ramosetron, a newer 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, has shown to have more potent and longer-lasting antiemetic effects compared to first-generation 5-HT3 receptor antagonists like ondansetron. This study aimed to compare the efficacy of ramosetron and ondansetron for … Read more

A Comparative Study of Haemodynamic Effects and Early Recovery Profile of Desflurane and Sevoflurane in Patients Undergoing Modified Radical Mastectomy under General Anaesthesia

Introduction:Inhaled general anesthetics play a crucial role in balanced anesthesia, with haemodynamic stability and early recovery being essential aspects of an effective anesthetic technique. Desflurane and sevoflurane are two recently developed inhaled anesthetics widely used for maintaining anesthesia. This study aims to observe and compare the haemodynamic effects and early recovery profiles of desflurane and … Read more
