Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: August 2016

Brief Summary: Ketamine and propofol have been used most frequently agents and remifentanil is used with increasing frequency in recent years. Investigators will compare ketamine-propofol and ketamine-remifentanyl effects on drug consumption, respiration, hemodynamics and recovery in pediatric colonoscopy patients. Our study is a prospective, randomized comparison of ketamine-propofol and remifentanyl-propofol for sedation in pediatric patients during elective colonoscopy. ASA I-II, 2-16 years old, seventy children will be included in the study after ethics committee approval and written informed consent from the parents. Children with cardiovascular, cerebral, pulmonary, renal and hepatic diseases will be excluded from the study. Group I (RK); 2 mg/kg ketamine and 0,25 µg/kg remifentanyl will be administered for induction in 1 minute.Then 0,1 µg/kg/h remifentanyl infusion will be started.

Group II (PK); 2 mg/kg ketamine and 1 mg/kg propofol will be administered for induction and then 1 mg/kg/h propofol infusion will be started. In case of movement, crying, heart rate and systolic blood pressure more than 20% increase from baseline; 0.05 to 0.1 mg / kg of remifentanil will be administered in group I, 0.5-1 mg / kg will be administered propofol in group II. Not enough that case 0.5-1 mg / kg of ketamine will be applied.

The anesthesiologist will continue monitoring after completion of colonoscopy until recovery of full consciousness. A Steward recovery score of 7 will be defined as the end of the recovery time.

Conditions:
  • Delayed Emergence From Anesthesia
