Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Haemodynamics in Patients undergoing Laparoscopic Surgeries under General Anaesthesia - A Comparative Study
Dexmedetomidine is a highly selective α2 agonist with sedative, sympatholytic and analgesic properties and hence, it has combined anaesthetic and analgesic sparing effect, making it an ideal anaesthetic adjuvant. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of dexmedetomidine infusion on hemodynamic response to critical incidences such as laryngoscopy, endotracheal intubation, creation of pneumoperitoneum and extubation in patients undergoing elective laparoscopic surgeries.
