Keywords:Dexmedetomidine, Propofol, Cataract surgery
Aim: This study is to evaluate the efficacy of dexmedetomidine and propofol as an appropriate sedative drug for monitored anaesthesia care in patients undergoing cataract surgery. Materials and methods: A total of 60 patients are being recruited into this study, Patients were randomized into 2 groups, as group D and group P to receive dexmedetomidine and propofol patients undergoing cataract surgery respectively. Results:. MAP, HR, RR, SPO2 were compared between the 2 groups, group P and D at various time points from T1-T9 were found not to be statistically significant as p>0.05. ISAS of group D is 53.50 ±2.193 and ISAS of group P is 43.10 ±2.090. The p value between the 2 study groups is 0.0001 which is highly statistically significant. Ramsay sedation scale of 3 was maintained throughout the operation in both the study groups. Conclusion: The study showed that dexmedetomidine seems to be an acceptable agent for MAC compared to propofol in patients undergoing cataract surgery. Satisfaction scores are also in favor of the patients treated with dexmedetomidine.
