STUDY OF HAEMODYNAMIC EFFECTS AND SIDE EFEECTS OF INTRATHECAL CLONIDINE

Dr. Chirasree Choudhury

Abstract :

 Clonidine is a selective partial agonist of α2 adreno receptors. It is known to increase both sensory and motor block of local anaesthetics. Various studies have shown that addition of clonidine with intrathecal bupivacaine prolongs the duration of analgesia significantly thus taking care of post operative pain. The following study was undertaken to observe the effect of intrathecal clonidine on cardiovascular and respiratory system and to study the incidence of complications and side effects of intrathecally administered clonidine . addition of 30 mcg of clonidine to intrathecal Bupivacaine causes statistically significant difference in pulse rate and mean blood pressure at about 90 mins after spinal anaesthesia when compared to intrathecal Bupivacaine alone.Intratheacal Clonidine produces side effects like nausea, vomiting,hypotension adycardia ,sedation
