15) (1994) studied the efficiency of bolus dose
Esmolol in blunting the stress response comparing 100 mg Esmolol versus 200 mg Esmolol.
Effect of bolus dose
of dexmedetomidine on haemodynamic responses and airway reflexes during tracheal extubation: double blind randomized, controlled trial study.
No-one developed severe sedation (response to pain only) or unresponsiveness; none required naloxone to reverse respiratory depression and only one had her PCA bolus dose
reduced to prevent over-sedation.
As mentioned above, two studies evaluated the efficacy of a bolus dose
of landiolol on haemodynamic responses to LTI (15,30).
We found addition of small bolus dose
, IV dose of propofol improved IPPV and saturation of majority of cases.
Patients in the esmolol group received the bolus dose
We chose to administer a 5 mg bolus dose
with a lockout interval of 30 minutes and a background infusion of 5 mg/hour.
R Miller, a bolus dose
of 100 mg of esmolol was safe and effective in attenuating the haemodynamic response to tracheal intubation.
In our institution, the routine bolus dose
used for treatment of post-spinal hypotension is 3 to 5 mg, repeated as required.
