Randomized Comparative Study of Intrathecal Administration of Dexmedetomidine-Fentanyl for Labour Pain

Vibhuti A Shah*, Manan Bajaj**, Jay Verma***.

Abstract
Introduction: Dexmedetomidine used in pregnancy as it does not significantly cross the placenta due to its high placental retention. Also it has no adverse effects on mother or fetus in many studies. Our purpose was to evaluate the effect of combination of IT dexmedetomidine and fentanyl on maternal and neonatal outcomes during labour in comparison to IT dexmedetomidine or IT fentanyl. Methods: Age groups between 20 40 years were included in the study. A total of 150 patients were included in the study. All the included patients were scheduled for normal vaginal delivery with uncomplicated delivery. Any patients with liver, kidney disease, cardiac problem, any allergy to local anesthesia, fetal compromise or patient refusal were excluded from the study. The informed consent was taken from all the patient included in the study. Results: Onset of analgesia was faster and duration of analgesia was longer in group C than in the two other groups (p-value <0.001), 18 patients in A group, 19 patients in group B and 15 patients in group C needed top-ups of 10ml of 0.125% bupivacaine till delivery of baby. Discussion & Conclusion: Our study concluded that Addition of 5 μg intrathecal dexmedetomidine to 10 μg fentanyl prolonged the duration of analgesia. The combination decreases the incidence of side effects in comparison to IT 10 μg dexmedetomidine or IT 20 μg fentanyl alone. [V Shah Natl J Integr Res Med, 2018; 9(1):88-91]

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
