The Feasibility of Dexmedetomidine for Awake Fiberoptic Nasal Intubation
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
|Awake Fiberoptic Nasal Intubation||Drug: dexmedetomidine Drug: Normal Saline 0.9% Drug: propofol 1%||Phase 2 Phase 3|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Interventional Study of Dexmedetomidine for Sedating Anticipated Difficult Airway Patients Undergoing Awake Fiberoptic Nasal Intubation|
- grading scores presenting conditions for nasal intubation [ Time Frame: before and after intubation ]
|Study Start Date:||August 2008|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||August 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: 1 dex group
received dexmedetomidine (1.0 mcg/kg) infusion
dexmedetomidine 1.0 mcg/kg infusion for 10minutes
Other Name: Precedex 100microg/ml
Placebo Comparator: 2 control group
received 0.9% saline
Drug: Normal Saline 0.9%
0.9% Normal Saline 0.25ml/kg infusion for 10minues
Other Name: saline 0.9% Nacl
Active Comparator: 3 Propofol group
received 1% propofol using effect-site TCI(Base Primea, Fresenius, France)
Drug: propofol 1%
Propofol: The initial target = 3 μg/ml. The TCI is adjusted by 0.5μg/ml according to patient comfort during the procedure.
The Orchestra® Base Primea(Fresenius, Brezins, France) offers a Target Controlled Infusion (TCI) target controlled infusion.
Other Name: propofol
Case number: 60, ASA I-III oral cancer patients with limited mouth opening
Patients will be randomly allocated into three groups, Dex group received dexmedetomidine (1.0 mcg/kg) infusion, Control group received saline, and Propofol group received 1% Propofol administrated usng effect-site TCI.
Main outcome was evaluated by grading scores presenting conditions for nasal intubation, post-intubation and satisfaction.
Other analysed parameters included airway obstruction, hemodynamic changes, treatment for hemodynamics response, consumption time for intubation, amnesia level, and postoperative adverse events. All outcome measurements were classified by scoring systems.
