[Combined anesthesia using Diprivan and ketamine in pediatric surgery].Anesteziol Reanimatol. 2000 May-JunAR
A total of 120 children aged 7-14 years were subjected to short-term elective and urgent interventions under combined intravenous anesthesia with diprivane and ketamine. The patients were divided into groups depending on methods of general anesthesia. Noninvasive monitoring of hemodynamic parameters and SaO2 was carried out during anesthesia and surgery and psychomotor functions were evaluated during the immediate postoperative period. Ketamine ensured stable hemodynamics during induction anesthesia. A combination of diprivane and ketamine levelled some untoward effects of these anesthetics.
