Compare effects of intravenous dexmedetomidine and fentanyl in attenuation of intubation response in a patient undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Compare the effects of intravenous dexmedetomidine and fentanyl in sedation, perioperative complications, and recovery in these patients.
Dexmedetomidine is comparatively a newer drug in countries like Pakistan. There is no research work available at the national level and scarcity of data at an international level with inconclusive outcomes. Our participation in the form of this research will add to scientific literature and step up ahead at the international level.
Fentanyl citrate is a narcotic analgesic interacting predominantly with the opioid μ receptor and exerting its principal pharmacological effect on CNS. Its primary action of therapeutic value is analgesia and sedation. It is extensively used for anesthetic and analgesic most often in operating room and ICU.
This is double-blind, a single centered randomized clinical trial which is based on assessing the hemodynamic stability provided by our study drugs during laryngoscopy and intubation in a patient undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In addition to that this study will assess the perioperative complication and postoperative recovery in these patients. Laparoscopy has now become the standard technique of choice for cholecystectomy which results in pathophysiological changes characterized by an increase in arterial pressure and heart rate (HR). Many types of research have been done in an attempt to minimize adverse effects by adding adjuvants to the conventional method of general anesthesia. Our research is also based on this aim. The objective of this study to determine the hemodynamic stability during laryngoscopy and intubation, peri-operative complication and post-operative recovery. The patients will be divided into two groups randomly and will be given the desired drugs via intravenous line by on floor consultant anesthetist who will be blinded to the drug. The study subjects' hemodynamics will be observed until 10 minutes of intubation. Any perioperative complication will be noted. The subjects will also be followed postoperatively in recovery to check there sedation score and recovery (Aldrete score) will be noted after 10 minutes after the patient shifted to recovery.

The primary purpose of this study is: 1. To compare dexmedetomidine with fentanyl in terms of intra-operative hemodynamics and post-operative analgesia. 2. To determine an...
The investigators hypothesize that giving Dexmedetomidine in combination with Fentanyl for pediatric patients undergoing hypospadias surgery, will reduce the fentanyl requirement for intra...
Multicenter, double blind randomized controlled trial of fentanyl vs. fentanyl + dexmedetomidine as the initial regimen for maintenance of sedation in mechanically-ventilated, critically i...
The investigators aimed to investigate the effects of pretreatment with different doses of dexmedetomidine on the cough caused by fentanyl during anesthetic induction. Patients undergoing...
In this study the investigators aim to determine the analgesic effect and side effects of intrathecal fentanyl and dexmedetomidine as adjuvant to local anesthetics in pediatric patients un...
As a sole agent, ketamine acutely compromises driving ability; however, performance after coadministration with the adjuvant sedating agents dexmedetomidine or fentanyl is unclear.
Analgesic doses of ketamine affects neurocognition; however, deficits under co-administration regimens are unknown. This study evaluated the effects of ketamine, alone and in combination with dexmedet...
A 51-year-old man with metastatic renal cell carcinoma whose fentanyl requirement was 3000-4000 µg/h in inpatient hospice presented for a thoracic (T) vertebral 4-10 posterior spinal fusion for a l...
US opioid overdose deaths continue to climb, with a 12.0% increase from 2016 to 2017. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, has been a major contributor to opioid-related overdose deaths. While fentanyl-relat...
Fentanyl and analogues such as butyrylfentanyl, carfentanil, 4-fluorobutyrylfentanyl, and furanylfentanyl may be either added to, or sold as, heroin. Fentanyl and carfentanil have approximately 100 an...
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)

An agonist of RECEPTORS, ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 that is used in veterinary medicine for its analgesic and sedative properties. It is the racemate of DEXMEDETOMIDINE.
A selective inhibitor of RECEPTORS, ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 that has analgesic and sedative properties. MEDETOMIDINE is the other racemic form.
