Comparision of dexmedetomidine and fentanyl as adjuvants to 0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine in spinal anesthesia in elective lower abdominal surgeries
- MedicineIndian Journal of Clinical Anaesthesia
αadrenergic agonist dexmedetomidine is a valuable adjunct to spinal anaesthetic it augments quality of spinal anaesthesia and provides intraoperative sedation and hemodynamic stability, and its use in adjuvant drugs improves the quality and duration of anesthesia and analgesia and patient safety.
Juan Evangelista Manrique, the true pioneer of spinal anesthesia in Colombia
Pioneering cases of this procedure carried out in 1901 by doctor Juan Evangelista Manrique and which continued to be performed by his colleagues and assistants of the medical community at the time are documented in the Corporis Fabrica dissertation collection of the National University of Colombia.
