Dr. Rajesh Gore, Dr. Aju Joy, Dr. Karthika Raju

Abstract


Total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) is defined as a technique of anaesthesia which involves the use of only intravenous
drugs. In this study, the combination of Propofol with Nalbuphine was compared with Propofol with Butorphanol in a
double blinded prospective trial in patients undergoing general anaesthesia for short surgery. 80 patients belonging to ASA grade I and II of either
sex undergoing short surgeries under TIVA were included in our study. Patients were randomized equally into 2 groups with 40 patients each.
Group I received Nalbuphine with Propofol and Group II received Butorphanol with Propofol. Blood pressure, MAP and heart rate were
monitored every 5 minutes till the end of surgery.
The changes in heart rate and MAP between the two groups was not significant but group II had increased blood pressure a few times during
surgery. The emergence time was significantly prolonged in Nalbuphine group.
