Role of Intraoperative Beta Blocker for Morbid Obese Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery

Using esmolol during anesthetic maintenance of laparoscopic bariatric surgery significantly decreases anesthetic, analgesic requirements, postoperative pain, PNV and postoperative hypoxia.


Postoperative pain, nausea, vomiting (PNV) and hypoxia are common in relation to laparoscopic bariatric surgery. Sympatholytic drugs might decrease the need for intravenous or Inhalation anesthetics and opioids. In this study we wanted to analyze effects of esmolol on intraoperative anesthetic-analgesic requirements, postoperative analgesic requirements, postoperative pain, PNV and hypoxia.

Methods: Sixty patients have been included. Propofol, fentanyl and rocuronium were used for induction. Study groups were as follows; group E Esmolol infusion was added to maintenance anesthetics (Sevoflurane and fentanyl), group N only Sevoflurane and fentanyl was used during maintenance. They have been monitored during the intraoperative period and postoperatively for 24 h for analgesic requirements and PNV. Visual analog scale (VAS) scores for pain was also been assessed.

A Comparison of the Effects of Intraoperative Administration of Metoprolol or Esmolol on General Anesthetic Requirement

We will compare three study groups receiving metoprolol, esmolol, or placebo. Level of anesthesia will be titrated to achieve the same range of BIS value in all groups. Our hypothesis is t...
