PURPOSE Maintaining systolic blood pressure (SBP) at 100% of baseline is best for fetal and maternal outcome. We hypothesized that irrespective of the vasopressor used, maintaining SBP at 100% of baseline with phenylephrine (P), metaraminol (M), or ephedrine (E) will produce the best fetal pH after cesarean section (LSCS) under subarachnoid block (SAB).

BACKGROUND Cervical spine immobilization results in a poor laryngeal view on direct laryngoscopy leading to difficulty in intubation. This randomized prospective study was designed to compare the laryngeal view and ease of intubation with the Macintosh, McCoy, and TruView laryngoscopes in patients with immobilized cervical spine. MATERIALS AND METHODS 60(More)
We report successful anesthetic management of elective cesarean section in a 31-year-old patient with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) using combined spinal-epidural anesthesia (CSEA). After inserting an arterial catheter and central venous catheter, isobaric bupivacaine (0.5% ; 5 mg) with fentanyl 10 microg was injected intrathecally at the L4-5 interspace(More)
AIM To analyze the indications and outcome of laparoscopic nephrectomy for benign non-functioning kidneys in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data of all patients operated over a 10 year period was retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS There were 56 children, aged 4 months to 12 years with a male: female ratio of 2.3:1. The most common presentation in(More)
AIMS To compare the efficacy, complications, cost analysis and hospital stay between two methods of drainage of the kidney: double J (DJ) stent versus nephrostomy tube following open pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction hydronephrosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a prospective randomized study of 20 patients in each group over 14 months.(More)
Hadoop is based on distributed computing having HDFS file system (Hadoop Distributed File System). Hadoop is highly fault-tolerant and can be deployed on low cost hardware. Hadoop is very much suitable for high volume of data and it also provide the high speed access to the data of the application which we want to use. hadoop architecture is cluster based,(More)
BACKGROUND The Truview EVO2 blade facilitates the view of vocal cords by indirect laryngoscopy and does not require the proper alignment of the oral, pharyngeal and tracheal axes as with the Macintosh blade. METHODS In a crossover fashion, we prospectively compared the view obtained at laryngoscopy with Truview EVO2 and the Macintosh blade in 110 adult(More)
BACKGROUND Achondroplasia is the commonest form of human dwarfism. The authors report atlanto-axial instability, in consequence to os odontoideum in this subgroup of patients. METHODS Two achondroplastic dwarfs harboring atlanto-axial dislocation are described along with radiological findings. RESULTS Both children underwent successful internal rigid(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Antihypertensive drugs are continued until the day of renal transplant surgery. These are associated with increased incidence of hypotension and bradycardia. Hence, this study was designed to evaluate perioperative haemodynamic and early graft functioning in renal recipients with discontinuation of antihypertensive drugs on the morning(More)
