Id: NCT02368782

Organisation Name: Istanbul University

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: December 2013

Last Update: February 23, 2015

Lead Sponsor: Istanbul University

Brief Summary: Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are non-invasive, easy to apply and objective test methods which are widely used to determine the presence of hearing in audiology clinics. Under some circumstances and children, the study should be applied under general anaesthesia. The aim of this study was to find out the influence of propofol (P) and ketamine (K) on OAE measurements. .

Methods: Thirty- healthy children who will underwent adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy will be included in this study after Institutional ethics committee approval and informed consent of parents. Children will be evaluated one day before surgery by tympanometry. Psychologically prepared children will be admitted to the operating room. Following EMLA (Eutectic Mixture of Local Anesthetics ) cream application IV line will be inserted. ECG and non-invasive blood pressure will be monitored. Transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) and distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) will measured in both ears of each patient (n=20 ears) prior to P or K administration( Pre-P and Pre-K). Propofol will be given 2mg/kg or ketamine 2mg/kg intravenously and 40% O2 in air will be given by mask ventilation. Five minutes later TEOAE and DPOAE measurements will be repeated (Post-P and Post-K). After this measurement the routine general anaesthesia and surgical protocol will be commenced. Heart rate, blood pressures TEOAE and DPOAE measurements will be compared at pre and post stages by paired Student's t- test.

Conditions:
  • Normal Healthy Ears
  • Ketamine and Propofol Effects on Hemodynamics
  • Ketamine and Propofol Effects on TEOAE and DPOAE
