Direct laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation induces a cardiovascular stress response that on an average increases blood pressure by 40-50% and heart rate by 20%. Pre-induction dose of IV Clonidine or IV Dexmedetomidine attenuates the hemodynamic stress response to laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation.

Abstract


Direct laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation induces a cardiovascular stress response that on an average increases blood pressure by 40-50% and heart rate by 20%. Pre-induction dose of IV Clonidine or IV Dexmedetomidine attenuates the hemodynamic stress response to laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation.
