Comparison of i-gel supraglottic airway and LMA-ProSeal™ in pediatric patients under controlled ventilation
Both groups were comparable in terms of ease of insertion, number of attempts and other insertion parameters, and there were no clinically significant complications in the first 12 h of the post-operative period. Expand
Robot-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy: perianaesthetic concerns
Refinement of the surgical technique is required to avoid compression by robotic arms on any portion of the patient, particularly the upper extremities,particularly the upper limbs during robot-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy. Expand
Diagnostic accuracy of bedside tests for predicting difficult intubation in Indian population: An observational study
The diagnostic accuracy of NC/TM ratio and Mallampatti score were better compared to other bedside tests to predict difficult intubation in Indian population. Expand
Comparison of different regimens of intravenous dexmedetomidine on duration of subarachnoid block
It is concluded that the continuous infusion of dexmedetomidine results in more advantages than just a bolus dose and is suggested to be used after subarachnoid blockade for prolonging the duration and achieving sedation. Expand
Brachial plexus injury after robotic-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy.
It is suggested that laryngoscope-aided EB-guided DLT placement maintains the curvature of the DLT and thus may be of help for optimal placement in difficult airway scenarios. Expand
Prolonged apnea after small single dose of intravenous tramadol.
It is demonstrated that even a small single dose of tramadol administered intravenously in the immediate postoperative period after general anesthesia may manifest as sudden and prolonged apnea. Expand
An atypical presentation of fentanyl rigidity following administration of low dose fentanyl in a child during intraoperative period
Ketamine is effective in decreasing the incidence of emergence agitation in children undergoing dental repair under sevoflurane general anesthesia, and its use with low-dose oral midazolam reduces the incidence and severity of emerged agitation in pediatric patients following sev ofluran anesthesia.

Complications occurred more often in patients with difficult airways (four out of seven patients vs. one out of nine patients without signs for a difficult airway) and simultaneous provisions be made for surgical airway operations in Patients with an expected difficultAirway. Expand
