OBJECTIVES To assess the validity of SNAP in predicting the outcome in terms of mortality and duration of hospital stay. The study was also undertaken to evolve the best cut-off SNAP scores for predicting mortality in different individual neonatal conditions. METHODS 295 consecutive newborn admitted to NICU during an eleven month period were evaluated(More)
Dual left anterior descending artery (or dual anterior interventricular artery) is a rare coronary anomaly. It is important to know the anatomic variants of this anomaly in patients with coronary artery disease who are undergoing either surgical myocardial revascularization or coronary angioplasty. We report the cases of 4 patients who had anatomic variants(More)
CONTEXT Laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation produce sympathetic overdrive by catecholamine release resulting in hypertension and tachycardia. Various agents are being tried to combat the intubation response over years. AIMS This study is aimed at comparing dexmedetomidine which is a highly selective alpha-2 agonist with an ultra-short acting beta(More)
Antiphospholipid antibody (APLA) syndrome is one of the most common thrombocytophilias but, unfortunately, goes unrecognized most often. It is an auto-immune disorder in which thrombotic events and a recurrent fetal loss occur in the presence of antibodies to phospholipids. It is the most common acquired hyper-coagulable state. There is a limited literature(More)
BACKGROUND GlideScope (GS) is a video laryngoscope that allows a real-time view of the glottis and endotracheal intubation. It provides a better view of the larynx without the need for alignment of the airway axes. AIM This prospective randomized comparative study is designed to compare the intubation time, hemodynamic response, and complications(More)
BACKGROUND Rocuronium (R) bromide and vecuronium (V) are monoquaternary aminosteroid compounds. The aim of this study was to evaluate the onset time, conditions of intubation and duration of action of equipotent doses (3ED95) of R and V. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out in 60 adult American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status 1-2(More)
CONTEXT The purpose of adding an adjuvant to local anesthetic in a central neuraxial blockade is to augment the desirable pharmacological actions of the agent and/or to minimize its undesirable pharmacological effects. Clonidine is an alfa-2 receptor agonist which has gained popularity in recent times as an adjuvant in spinal anesthesia. AIMS To evaluate(More)
A 45-year-old male patient with an irregularly irregular rhythm and fast ventricular rate was posted for an emergency laparotomy for hollow viscus perforation. His history was not suggestive of any systemic disorders. An echocardiography revealed left ventricular dysfunction with an ejection fraction of 47% without any valvular or chamber abnormality.(More)
CONTEXT Airtraq™ (Prodol Meditec, Vizcaya, Spain) is a recently developed laryngoscope, which facilitates easy visualization of glottis through a matrix of sequentially arranged lenses and mirrors. In this observatory study, we sought to compare the ease of tracheal intubation with Airtraq™ and Macintosh laryngoscope when performed by 2(nd) year(More)
