AbstractBackground: This study is designed to compare the degree of attenuation of hemodynamic response to induction, laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation of etomidate with those of propofol in patients undergoing noncardiac surgical procedures.
Material and Methods: The present study conducted in Non Cardiac Surgeries in the Department of Anaesthesiology, NMCH, Patna, Bihar. The present study was conducted on 60 patients of ASA Grade I and II of either sex, aged 18 to 60 years, scheduled for a variety of non-cardiac surgical procedures requiring general anaesthesia.
Conclusion: Etomidate provides a more stable hemodynamics during general anesthesia as compared to propofol.
