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
