In hemodynamically unstable patients, injection ketamine and injection etomidate are thought to be more suitable drugs for induction of anaesthesia, hence this study was conducted with the aim to evaluate the onset of action, hemodynamic effects during intubation and to assess untoward effects of injection ketamine and etomidate for intravenous induction.
