Labetalol to Prevent Hypertension and Tachycardia During Fiberoptic Bronchoscopy
Passing a bronchoscope through the airways frequently causes a stress response even though patients are sedated. This stress response is usually an increase in pulse and blood pressure, which may have undesirable effects on the heart and circulation.
We plan to give patients labetalol (a beta blocker which reduces pulse and blood pressure) in addition to normal sedation, to patients undergoing bronchoscopy in our department.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study will evaluate the outcomes of bronchoscopy in Bome Marrow Transplant (BMT) patients who develop lung infiltrates suspicious for infections of the lungs. It will consist of two g...
The investigators hypothesize that the scheduled use of bronchoscopy on a regular basis after inhalation injury in burn patients will improve outcome by providing pulmonary hygiene, decrea...
PURPOSE: The pharmacokinetics (PK) of labetalol show wide inter-subject variability, but the genetic causes for this are largely undetermined. This study was performed to examine whether common polymo...
