BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Postoperative emesis after pediatric strabismus surgery continues to be a problem, despite the use of antiemetics. The purpose of this study was to identify an anesthetic technique associated with the lowest incidence of vomiting after pediatric strabismus surgery. METHODS A prospective, randomized, double-blind study was(More)
Considerable evidence suggests that oxidative stress plays an important role in tissue damage associated with hypoglycemia and other metabolic disorders. The altered brain neurotransmitters metabolism, cerebral electrolyte contents, and impaired blood-brain barrier function may contribute to CNS dysfunction in hypoglycemia. The present study elucidates the(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) caused by mycoplasmas is very rare. This report describes a severe case of atypical pneumonia due to M. pneumoniae in a formerly healthy young woman who developed high grade fever and cough leading to severe disseminated lung disease and finally to fatal ARDS. This case came into picture when killer atypical(More)
Dengue fever is the most common and widespread insect-borne viral infection worldwide. The most critical phase of this viral infection is the defervescent phase when the fever subsides but the patient develops life-threatening thrombocytopenia due to complement activation by viral antigens binding to platelets. We have outlined the anesthetic management of(More)
BACKGROUND Vitreoretinal (VR) surgery is associated with moderate to severe pain and significant postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of sub-Tenon's block for providing perioperative analgesia in children undergoing VR surgery. METHODS In a randomized, observer-blinded trial, after obtaining institutional(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility and stability of ocular alignment after single-stage adjustable strabismus surgery (SSASS) performed under topical anesthesia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five patients of concomitant exodeviations were randomized into three groups of 15 cases each and were operated with three different techniques: Group I -(More)
BACKGROUND Opioids continue to remain the primary analgesics in children undergoing ophthalmic surgery, and their use may be associated with adverse effects like vomiting and respiratory depression. Topical anesthesia avoids these adverse effects and also complications of regional blocks. We designed this study to verify whether topical anesthesia with(More)
BACKGROUND Anaesthetic drugs during general anaesthesia are titrated according to sympathetic or somatic responses to surgical stimuli. It is now possible to measure depth of anaesthesia using electroencephalography (EEG). Entropy, an EEG-based monitor can be used to assess the depth of anaesthesia using a strip of electrodes applied to the forehead, and(More)
BACKGROUND Pain after laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery can be moderate to severe, interfering with return to normal activity. The study aimed to assess the efficacy of bilateral ultrasound-guided (USG) transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block for relieving acute pain after laparoscopic hernia repair as T10-L1 nerve endings are anesthetized with this(More)
A 2-month-old male baby undergoing penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) under general anesthesia developed bradycardia and a decrease in heart rate to 53 b x min(-1) when stay sutures were taken through the superior and inferior recti. A bolus of 0.1 mg intravenous atropine resulted in tachycardia of up to 180-220 b x min(-1), which persisted for 35 min. After(More)
