Abstract: Introduction: These injure result from contact with faulty electrical wiring g or
high voltage power lines passing over the residences. Lighting is also an electrical injure the
extent of injuring is influenced by the duration of contact, current-voltage, type of current
(direct or alternate) the path of current and the resistance offered by tissues. Case
Presentation: A case of a 25-year-old male admitted in the burn unit on the date 22 October
2019 with complaints about he came in contact with the electric pole due to electrical shock
on 12/10/2019. He had wound over left hand up the wrist, wound over over the left axilla,
inner part of both thighs, head and back. The wound over the left hand was associated with
pus discharge, which was foul-smelling and scanty in amount, blood-stained.Interventions:
Generally, the burn victims with major burns are hospitalized and care is providing the burn
unit or ward. The goals during this phase are saving a life, maintaining and protecting the
airway, restoring hemodynamic stability and promoting healing and preventing or correcting
the complication. Outcomes: Over the short course of treatment, the patient significantly
improved in functional mobility, transfers, ambulation, and bed mobility. Progress even
further towards his goal of returning home. Discussion: The patient responded well to
treatment, however additional interventions could be utilized in the future to aid in greater
improvements

A prospective, randomized study was performed after acceptance by the Ethics Committee and informed consent of 60 patients seeking elective surgery at the Krishna Hospital and the Medical Research Centre, Karad. The study objective is to evaluate haemodynamic consistency through attenuation of the pressure reaction during laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation. Group A obtained pregabalin orally with water sips before induction and Group B served as control group, received multivitamin orally with sips of water 1hr before induction. Both groups were uniform in their distribution of age, weight and gender. They had similar physical status with no coexisting disease. Both groups were managed with same anesthetic protocol. It was concluded that the preoperative sedation before giving premedication in control and pregabalin groups are comparable, whereas pregabalin produced better preoperative sedation after one hour of premedication, as evidenced by higher Ramsay sedation score.
