The effect of different doses of ketamine on intraocular pressure in anesthetized children.
BACKGROUND When used for induction of anesthesia, ketamine usually increases intraocular pressure (IOP). However, the effect of low doses of ketamine, which are used for parental separation inExpand

Sedation in patients above 60 years of age undergoing urological surgery under spinal anesthesia: comparison of propofol and midazolam infusions.
CONTEXT Propofol and midazolam are commonly used sedatives during regional anesthesia in adults. Smaller doses of these drugs are required in older age due to altered pharmacokinetics andExpand

Insertion of laryngeal mask airway does not increase the intraocular pressure in children with glaucoma
Objectives: It is hypothesized that in children with glaucoma, the insertion of laryngeal mask airway (LMA) will cause lesser rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) than tracheal tube (TT).
