Abstract:Introduction: Spinal anaesthesia provided by bupivacaine may be to short for providing postoperative analgesia. This study is conducted for the understating and calculation of the efficacy of intrathecal fentanyl and intrathecal dexmedetomidine as an adjuvant to hyperbaric bupivacaine with regards to the onset duration of sensory and motor blockade.
Material & Method: 200 patients were taken with difference age group and classified into two groups. Both group consist 100 patients and given spinal anaesthesia using bupivacaine 0.5%, heavy 2.5 ml with either fentanyl 25µg (group A) or 5µg of preservative free dexmedetomidine (group B).
Result: During sedation we take proper measurement of major vital organ such as taken pulse rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and arterial oxygen saturation were obtained. After operation patient analgesia time were recorded.
