After obtaining an approval of research and ethics committee of hospital and after having written and informed consent from each patient, 150 adult patients scheduled for elective open cholecystectomy surgery under General Anaesthesia in Assam Medical College and Hospital, Dibrugarh were selected randomly by matching the parameters and were provided general anaesthesia with endotracheal intubation for all the patients.
Patients heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean blood pressure, SPO2, were monitored before the administration of study drug (t1), just before taking the patients in OT (t2), before intubation (t3), after intubation (t4) 0 min, 3 min, 5 min, 10 min, 30 min after intubation.
The timing of glottic view, tracheal tube placement, and tracheal intubation
were confirmed by CO2 waveforms.
When this level was obtained, 0.6 mg [kg.sup.-1] rocuronium was administered to facilitate endotracheal intubation
. Patients were ventilated by a facemask with 100% oxygen for 3 min following neuromuscular blockage, and the second measurement was performed as [T.sub.1] at this point.
Tracheobronchial injuries, including penetrating, blunt or iatrogenic thoracic trauma, may occur especially after the administration of endotracheal intubation
after a large airway intervention.
Conclusion: The NC/TM [greater than or equal to]5 was found good predictor for difficult intubation
in obese patients.
In this prospective study, we aimed to determine (1) the median effective dose (ED[sub]50) and the 95% effective dose (ED[sub]95) of an IV bolus of oxycodone that blunts the hemodynamic response to tracheal intubation
with propofol according to gender and (2) the adverse events associated with induction-dose oxycodone.
To examine emergency intubation
practice for trauma and burns patients in the KZN region of SA, and to compare outcomes between emergency department (ED), rural hospital and roadside settings in order to determine whether there is scope for improving patient care.
Personal characteristics of the patients and HR, SAP DAP, MAP and BIS values recorded at T1, T2, T3, and T4 and T5, total dose of fentanyl required, and effect of different doses of thiopental on hemodynamic response to laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation
were compared between the two groups.
Each participant was primarily allowed to conduct a preliminary intubation
on the same manikin.
 demonstrated that intermediate dose of labetalol blunts HR response to laryngoscopy and intubation
in healthy patients but has minimal effect on BP.
