Comparison of pressor response to fiberoptic nasotracheal and direct laryngoscopic assisted orotracheal intubation in hypertensive patients

Bangaari A, Chawla V, Sarva Vinothini J, Nair T.


Background: The circulatory response to tracheal intubation was studied in 50 controlled hypertensive patients under general anaesthesia.
Method: They were randomly assigned to receive either fiberoptic assisted nasotracheal (FOB) or direct laryngoscopy assisted (DLS) orotracheal intubation. Blood pressure and heart rate was recorded following induction of anaesthesia, at intubation and next 10 minutes.
Result: Intubation time was significantly longer in the FOB group (P
