Single‐dose dexmedetomidine reduces agitation and provides smooth extubation after pediatric adenotonsillectomy
The effect of single dose dexmedetomidine on emergence agitation in children undergoing adenotonsillectomy is examined in this placebo‐controlled study. Expand
Dexmedetomidine vs midazolam for premedication of pediatric patients undergoing anesthesia
The effects of intranasal dexmedetomidine and midazolam on mask induction and preoperative sedation in pediatric patients is compared. Expand
Single‐dose dexmedetomidine attenuates airway and circulatory reflexes during extubation
This work investigated whether the alpha agonist dexmedetomidine has the ability to attenuate airway and circulatory reflexes during emergence from anaesthesia. Expand
Dexmedetomidine-ketamine and propofol-ketamine combinations for anesthesia in spontaneously breathing pediatric patients undergoing cardiac catheterization.
The dexmedetomidine-ketamine combination was not superior to a propofol-ketamines combination because of insufficient sedation and analgesia and a longer recovery time. Expand
Propofol and Propofol–Ketamine in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Cardiac Catheterization
Propofol combined with low-dose ketamine preserves mean arterial pressure better without affecting the recovery and thus is a good option in pediatric patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. Expand
Propofol‐ketamine vs propofol‐fentanyl for sedation during pediatric upper gastrointestinal endoscopy
Background:  The aim of this study was to compare the clinical efficacy and safety of propofol‐ketamine with propofol‐fentanyl in pediatric patients undergoing diagnostic upper gastrointestinalExpand
Comparison of propofol with propofol-ketamine combination in pediatric patients undergoing auditory brainstem response testing.
In pediatric cases where ABR testing was applied, addition of low dose ketamine to propofol avoided the risk of respiratory depression due to prop ofol and lowered the need for additional dose of propofolin. Expand
Dexmedetomidine and meperidine prevent postanaesthetic shivering
Intraoperative intravenously administration of dexmedetomidine 1 μgkg−1 reduces postanaesthetic shivering as does meperidine 0.5 mg kg−1 in patients after major surgery in patients with severe abdominal or orthopaedic surgery. Expand
Does dexmedetomidine provide cardioprotection in coronary artery bypass grafting with cardiopulmonary bypass? A pilot study.
This pilot study evaluated whether dexmedetomidine has a cardioprotective effect during coronary artery bypass graft surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass with no statistically significant differences between groups. Expand
A comparison of fentanyl-propofol with a ketamine-propofol combination for sedation during endometrial biopsy.
Hemodynamic change and degrees of sedation showed that fentanyl-propofol and ketamine-fentanyl combinations can be used safely in patients undergoing endometrial biopsy, however, with regard to side effects and patient satisfaction, the fentanyl- Propofol was superior. Expand
