Alternative Sedation During Bronchoscopy

2014-07-23 21:08:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This protocol hopes to determine whether the use of dexmedetomidine-ketamine can reduce the use of standard of care fentanyl-midazolam sedation during bronchoscopy. This may result in less respiratory depression while providing better compliance with the procedure.

Description

All patients enrolled in the study will be undergoing bronchoscopy, which is typically performed with sedation. All procedural sedation carries some risk. Several features of the study may lower the risk of sedation relative to that of conventional sedation. An anesthesiologist will be present throughout the procedure. Continuous monitoring of respiration with RIP will be employed. Administration of sedation will be via a volumetric syringe pump. Benefits specific to dexmedetomidine-ketamine include the lack of respiratory depression and greater hemodynamic stability.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cyclohexanone derivative used for induction of anesthesia. Its mechanism of action is not well understood, but ketamine can block NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE) and may interact with sigma receptors.

A hallucinogen formerly used as a veterinary anesthetic, and briefly as a general anesthetic for humans. Phencyclidine is similar to KETAMINE in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and Angel Dust.

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.

A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.

Patient care procedures performed during the operation that are ancillary to the actual surgery. It includes monitoring, fluid therapy, medication, transfusion, anesthesia, radiography, and laboratory tests.
