  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare heart rate in infants who receive atropine as a part of their medication before intubation to those who do not.

To be able to find out , we need to divided babies into 2 groups;

group 1 : receives atropine + sedation + muscle relaxant group 2 : receives water or saline ( placebo group) + sedation + muscle relaxant

Then we need to compare heart rate during intubation and duration of intubation between the 2 groups.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Heart rate less than 80 BPM and oxygen saturation less than 80% [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]

    Heart rate and transcutaneous oxygen saturation will be monitored continuously during the procedure and data will be recorded at 3 stages;

    1. 2 minutes prior to intubation (after atropine or placebo dose)
    2. during intubation
    3. 2 minutes after intubation (once ETT secured to face)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Heart rate < 100 BPM [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]
  • Oxygen saturation < 85% [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]
  • Duration of intubation attempts [ Time Frame: 1-2 minutes ]
  • Number of intubation attempts [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]
  • Lowest heart rate after premedication [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]
  • Lowest oxygen saturation after premedication [ Time Frame: 5-6 minutes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 70
Study Start Date: April 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Atropine, fentanyl and succinylcholine
20 mcg/kg atropine IV, 3 mcg/kg fentanyl slowly IV and 2 mg/kg succinylcholine IV.
Drug: atropine
Atropine 0.02 mg/kg IV
Other Name: AtroPen
Placebo Comparator: placebo, fentanyl and succinylcholine
an equivalent volume of normal saline to atropine IV, 3 mcg/kg fentanyl slowly IV and 2 mg/kg succinylcholine IV.
Drug: Placebo
an equivalent volume of normal saline to atropine IV
Other Name: 0.9% sodium chloride

Detailed Description:

We hypothesize that premedication for intubation with fentanyl and succinylcholine alone will maintain equal stability of heart rate and oxygen saturation without a prolongation of time to completion of intubation when compared to a protocol using atropine, fentanyl and succinylcholine.

In order to answer this question we plan to undertake a prospective randomized double blinded control trial of use of atropine as an adjunct for elective intubation of infants less than 46 weeks postmenstrual age.
