Intravenous Caffeine for Adult Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Undergoing Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty : Effects on Postoperative Respiratory Complications and Recovery Profile

  title={Intravenous Caffeine for Adult Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Undergoing Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty : Effects on Postoperative Respiratory Complications and Recovery Profile},
  author={Nevine Gouda and M. D.},
Background: This randomized double blind placebo controlled study, aimed at investigating the effects of intravenous caffeine benzoate on post extubation adverse respiratory events and recovery from sevoflurane anesthesia in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) undergoing uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP). Methods: 60 patients ASA I and II scheduled for UPPP for OSA were blindly grouped to receive either 500mg caffeine benzoate or 0.9% normal saline as placebo control following completion… Expand

Use of therapeutic caffeine in acute care postoperative and critical care settings: a scoping review
Although caffeine is widely used, there is a paucity of studies investigating withdrawal or therapeutic effects in patients admitted to ICU and further novel studies are a priority. Expand
Intravenous Caffeine Rescue for Postoperative Hypoventilation in a 16-Year-Old With Trisomy 10: A Case Report.
This paper describes a 16-year-old male with an anesthetic history notable for prolonged emergence, postoperative hypoxia, postoperatively reintubation, and unexpected hospital admission presenting for dental extraction of impacted teeth and utilized intravenous caffeine, a respiratory stimulant used in preterm infants, to facilitate recovery from anesthesia.

Caffeine in children with obstructive sleep apnea.
In children with OSA scheduled for T&A, administration of caffeine benzoate, 20 mg/kg IV, decreased the number of children who developed adverse post-extubation respiratory events and decreased the overall incidence of adversePost-extubsiting respiratory events. Expand
Doxapram shortens recovery following sevoflurane anesthesia
It is concluded that doxapram 1 mg·kg-1 hastens early recovery from sevoflurane anesthesia, and this arousal effect correlates with higher bispectral index values. Expand
Effect of aminophylline on recovery from sevoflurane anaesthesia.
Aminophylline speeded recovery after sevoflurane anaesthesia and it may have some advantage in anaesthesia practice for patients. Expand

A practical approach for anaesthetic management of adult SAS patients is suggested both for incidental and specific procedures, and the cardiorespiratory complications of SAS and the presence of associated diseases can adversely influence anaesthesia management. Expand
The effects of aminophylline on bispectral index during inhalational and total intravenous anaesthesia *
It appears that aminophylline has the ability to partially antagonise the sedative effects of general anaesthetics. Expand
Current Options in the Management of Apnea of Prematurity
A review of the literature suggests that caffeine citrate may be the agent of choice for AOP, and a few studies suggest that use of pharmacotherapy to treat AOP is not generally associated with long-term sequelae, although more data are needed before this can be definitively concluded. Expand
Aminophylline reversal of prolonged postoperative sedation induced by propofol
The case reports presented here demonstrate that intravenous aminophylline effectively reversed prolonged propofol-induced sedation/anesthesia in the postoperative period. Expand

The pathophysiology of sleep apnoea is addressed with the principal focus being the mechanisms that lead to pharyngeal collapse during sleep, and prominent theories will be discussed. Expand
