Lead Sponsor: Jenny Bajracharya
Brief Summary: This is a prospective comparative study which will be conducted in patients with proximal femur fracture undergoing operative interventions under subarachnoid block in sitting position. Ketamine group will receive 0.3mg/kg intravenously and Fentanyl group will receive 1.5mcg/kg before changing the position from supine to sitting for subarachnoid block. Analgesic effectiveness of the two drugs will be compared by Numeric Rating Scale for pain.Conditions
Research hypothesis (Null hypothesis) There is no difference in analgesic effectiveness, patient satisfaction, spinal performance and occurrence of adverse effects between Intravenous ketamine and intravenous fentanyl in patients with proximal femur fracture.
Alternate hypothesis Intravenous Ketamine in patients with proximal femur fracture improves the level of analgesia, patient satisfaction, spinal performance and occurrence of adverse effects when compared to intravenous fentanyl.
