|Abstract||Perioperative tachycardia is common in patients undergoing surgery. In patients with mitral valve stenosis, the tachycardia can precipitate congestive heart failure and pulmonary oedema. Efficacy of atenolol premedication (0.5 mg/kg) for haemodynamic stability was assessed in 37 patients undergoing closed mitral commissurotomy (Group I) and compared with 43 patients who did not receive it (Group II). Patients with mild aortic regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, mild to moderate pulmonary artery hypertension or severe pulmonary artery hypertension without right ventricular failure were all included in the study. All patients were premedicated with tablet diazepam 0.1 mg/Kg, on the previous night and on the day of surgery and intramuscular morphine 0.1 mg/kg and glycopyrrolate 0.2 mg 45 min before surgery. In addition, in group I, atenolol 0.5 mg / kg was administered at night and 2 hours prior to surgery. Anaesthesia was induced with thiopental, morphine, oxygen and isoflurane. Tracheal intubation was facilitated by pancuronium bromide 0.12 mg/kg. Maintenance was with morphine, isoflurane and nitrous oxide in oxygen. The study was confined to the periods of maximal anaesthetic and surgical haemodynamic stress like laryngoscopy, intubation, surgical incision and commissurotomy. For all periods of haemodynamic stress, heart rate was significantly lower in group I, (p<0.05) than Group II. Blood pressure variations were comparable in both the groups. A statistically significant (p<0.001) decrease in systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressures, were observed in patients of both groups before and during valvotomy. One patient in atenolol group experienced bradycardia of <45 beats per minute. This was not associated with hypotension and it was easily treated with atropine. This study documents that, selective ss - blockade with atenolol in patients undergoing closed mitral commissurotomy, ensure a predictable control of heart rate in the perioperative period.|

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.
