Premedication and Haemodynamics After Spinal Anesthesia

2014-08-27 03:16:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Blood pressure drop following spinal anesthesia is connected with sympathetic/parasympathetic activity which may be determinated by Heart Rate Variability (HRV) assessment. Sympathetic predomination expressed as LF/HF ratio above 2.5 is strongly connected with deeper blood pressure fall. As drugs given for premedication may have impact on HRV variables, the investigators would like to determine if pharmacological premedication may modify hemodynamic changes following spinal blockade. Two drugs will be compared - midazolam which is known to lead to increase in LF/HF ratio and morphine - opioid which provokes opposite effect.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A cytochrome P-450 monooxygenase that is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway by oxidizing a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including STEROIDS; FATTY ACIDS; and XENOBIOTICS. This enzyme has clinical significance due to its ability to metabolize a diverse array of clinically important drugs such as CYCLOSPORINE; VERAPAMIL; and MIDAZOLAM. This enzyme also catalyzes the N-demethylation of ERYTHROMYCIN.

Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected directly into the spinal cord.

A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)

An opioid analgesic with actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE, apart from an absence of cough suppressant activity. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain, including pain in obstetrics. It may also be used as an adjunct to anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1092)
