A naesthesia Estimation of Serum Potassium in Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Background: The cardiovascular implications due to CO2 insufflation during laparoscopic surgeries have been a subject of research. Animal studies have reported life threatening increase in serum potassium levels during rise in intra-abdominal pressure. Methods: Induction of 30 patients undergoing laproscopic cholecystectomy was done by giving Thiopentone… CONTINUE READING
