Effect of Oral Clonidine Premedication on Perioperative Haemodynamic Response and Postoperative Sedation for Patients undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Laparoscopy is associated with pneumoperitoneum, which leads to haemodyanamic changes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare the effects of oral clonidine v/s placebo in obtunding haemodynamic response to laryngoscopy, intubation and pneumoperitoneum in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Post-operative sedation and other side effects were also observed.
