[Central hemodynamics in conditions of combined intravenous anesthesia using propofol and ketamine in pediatric ophthalmology].Anesteziol Reanimatol. 2002 Jan-FebAR
A total of 152 patients aged 4-14 years at risk of ASA I or II were examined. Planned operations were carried out: correction of myopia, strabismus, and eyelid ptosis. The patients were divided into 4 groups: 1) 54 patients operated on under combined anesthesia (propofol infusion and ketamine bolus), 2) 60 children operated on under combined anesthesia by ketamine and propofol infusions, 3) 24 patients operated on under ketamine + seduxene infusion narcosis, and 4) 34 children in whom ketamine and seduxen were injected in boluses. All operations were carried out under conditions of spontaneous respiration. Central hemodynamic parameters were studied by tetrapolar chest rheography with NCCOM3-R7 device (BIOMED). Methods of combined anesthesia with diprivan (propofol) are indicated for children subjected to ophthalmological surgery as methods with the minimum effects on the hemodynamics and ensuring adequate anesthesiological protection as regards the clinical and hemodynamic status.
