ALEGRE ANDRADE, Patricia  and  TRUJILLO RODRIGUEZ, Valentina Fernanda. Intranasal dexmedetomidine in sedation for OB/GYN . Gac Med Bol [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.1, pp.28-33. ISSN 1012-2966.

 Objectives: to evaluate the use of intranasal dexmedetomidine as an adjunct for sedation in LUI and AMEU associated with the objective controlled infusion system. Methods: uncontrolled, prospective, single-blind clinical trial. Sample of 48 patients who meet the inclusion criteria. Group CD was administered Dexmedetomidine IN a dose of 0.9 µg / kg and another control group. For the statistical analysis of continuous variables, mean and SD were used; For ordinal variables, frequency was calculated. In addition to Student’s T-test and Chi χ2. 95% confidence level and 12% margin of error. Results: age of 32 ± 7 years; in the CD group the induction and maintenance dose of remifentanil was 2 ± 0.7 ng / ml and in the SD group the induction dose was 4.1 ± 0.7 ng / ml and maintenance dose 3.9 ± 0.5 ng / ml; for propofol the induction and maintenance dose was 3.7 ± 0.5 mcg / ml in the SD group, while in the CD group the induction and maintenance dose was 2.1 ± 0.5 mcg / ml. The heart rate was 64-62 and in the SD group it was 70-67 beats / min. The MAP associated with dexme is 73 mmHg and the SD group is 78 mmHg. No complications were verified by the administration of Dexmedetomidine. Conclusions: dexmedetomidine IN allows to decrease the dose of drugs, with stability of hemodynamic changes, the dose used does not cause complications.
