Comparison of Propofol Based Versus Volatile Based Anesthesia and Postoperative Sedation

2014-08-27 03:12:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

All patients undergoing cardiac surgery require intraoperative anesthesia and short-term postoperative sedation with anesthetic agents after the procedure when patient is in the intensive care unit (ICU). The clinical data obtained so far are concentrating on intraoperative use volatile agents (preconditioning) resulting in better postoperative cardiac function and less release of biochemical markers of myocardial damage. There are no studies investigating whether postoperative use of volatile agents (post conditioning) in cardiac surgical population is improving outcomes. The aim of the present study is to compare total intravenous anesthesia and postoperative sedation versus total volatile anesthesia and postoperative sedation in cardiac surgical population.

Incidence of epileptiform discharges in children during induction of anaesthesia using Propofol versus Sevoflurane.

In pediatric patients, anaesthesia induction is often performed with intravenous Propofol or Sevoflurane inhalation. Although epileptiform discharges have been observed during inductions with Sevoflur...

A randomised trial to compare the increase in intracranial pressure as correlated with the optic nerve sheath diameter during propofol versus sevoflurane-maintained anesthesia in robot-assisted laparoscopic pelvic surgery.

Robot-assisted surgery can cause raised intracranial pressures (ICP) due to steep trendelenburg position and pneumoperitoneum. The choice of anesthetic agents can influence the ICP, which can be measu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.

An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.

A stable, non-explosive inhalation anesthetic, relatively free from significant side effects.

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.

Surgery performed on the heart.
