|Abstract||Background: Scalp infiltration with epinephrine-lidocaine solution in patients undergoing neurosurgery may result in transient but significant hypotension. We investigated whether premedication with alpha(2)-adrenoreceptor agonist clonidine, which also exhibits alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor mediated vasoconstriction, would prevent or attenuate this fall in mean arterial pressure (M A P).Methods: Sixty-six American Society of Anesthesiologists 1 and 11 adult patients, 18 to 50 years, undergoing elective tumor decompression were recruited into this prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study, and scheduled to receive either oral pantoprazole 40 mg (placebo group) or oral clonidine 3 mu g/kg (clonidine group), 90 minutes before induction of anesthesia. Primary end points studied were heart rate (HR) and MAP in both groups measured just before scalp infiltration (preinfiltration baseline) and then every 30 seconds for 5 minutes after initiation of scalp infiltration with 2.5 mu g/mL epinephrine contained in 15 in L of 1%, lidocaine solution.Results: There was no significant change in HR in the 2 groups during the study period compared with baseline values; however, patients in clonidine group had significantly lower HR compared with placebo (*P < 0.05). In both groups, MAP fell significantly below baseline I minute after start of infiltration. It recovered in the clonidine group after 2.5 minutes but not in the placebo group where it continued to remain low even at 5 minutes. MAP in the placebo group was also significantly lower compared with the clonidine group from 2.5 minutes to 5 minutes.Conclusion: In conclusion, oral clonidine 3 mu g/kg administered 90 minutes before induction of anesthesia attenuates the fall in MAP due to scalp infiltration with a dilute concentration of epinephrine-lidocaine solution in patients undergoing craniotomy under isoflurane anesthesia.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
