The newly developed supralaryngeal airway Streamlined Liner of the Pharynx Airway (SLIPA) has been compared successfully to the LMA, but the haemodynamic response to its insertion has not been evaluated in a randomised study. We compared haemodynamic and Bispectral index (BIS) responses to insertion of the SLIPA with classic LMA after standardising the(More)
BACKGROUND There are few published accounts of anaesthesia delivery at high altitude. Natives at high altitude are known to have altered cardiorespiratory reserve. This study seeks to demonstrate the safety of propofol-fentanyl anaesthesia at high altitude titrated to the bispectral index (BIS) (3505 metres above sea level) in native highlanders. It also(More)
BACKGROUND Closed loop anaesthesia delivery systems (CLADSs) are a recent advancement in accurate titration of anaesthetic drugs. They have been shown to be superior in maintaining adequate depth of anaesthesia with few fluctuations as compared with target-controlled infusion or manual titration of drug delivery. METHODS Twenty patients scheduled to(More)
Uncuffed endotracheal tubes are commonly used in children in an attempt to decrease the potential for pressure induced tracheal injury. However, uncuffed endotracheal tube may increase the risk of aspiration and lead to erratic delivery of preset tidal volume during mechanical ventilation. Therefore, it is desirable to intubate trachea with an appropriate(More)
The ductus arteriosus occupies a uniquely privileged position in the management of heart disease; it initiated not only the surgical management of congenital lesions but also the percutaneous management of this subset. During trans-thoracic echocardiography (TTE) the ductus is often visualized using 'high' parasternal (or the 'ductal' view) or suprasternal(More)
BACKGROUND Closed-loop systems for anesthesia delivery have been shown to outperform traditional manual control in different clinical settings. The present trial was aimed at evaluating the feasibility and efficacy of Bispectral Index (BIS)-guided closed-loop anesthesia delivery system (CLADS) in comparison with manual control across multiple centers in(More)
Introduction: Congenital heart diseases (CHD) present with wide spectrum of lesions leading to diagnostic dilemmas and it is quite possible to miss correct diagnosis during preoperative transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in an inadequately sedated child, especially in a busy outpatient setting. It is a routine practice in our center to do baseline TTE(More)
BACKGROUND Advances in cardiac surgery has shifted paradigm of management to perioperative psychological illnesses. Delirium is a state of altered consciousness with easy distraction of thoughts. The pathophysiology of this complication is not clear, but identification of risk factors is important for positive postoperative outcomes. The goal of the present(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of paravertebral administration of dexmedetomidine as an adjuvant to local anesthetic on the intraoperative anesthetic drug requirement and incidence of post-thoracotomy pain syndrome. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled, double-blind trial. SETTING Single university hospital. PARTICIPANTS The study comprised 30(More)
