INDUCING AGENTS FOR BRONCHOSCOPY A COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF PROPANIDID AND THIOPENTONE
AbstractABSTRACT:In this study comparison of induction characteristics of Thiopentone and Propanidid in twogroups of patients (25 each) scheduled for bronchoscopy was undertaken. The results show thatPropanidid maintains better cardio-respiratory stability. There is earlier recovery and shorteranaesthetic period. Propanidid was therefore, found to be safer and more useful inducing agent thanThiopentone in bronchoscopy, more so in outdoor cases.
