Brief Summary: The aim of this study was to try to reduce the required dose of etomidate used in anesthesia for upper endoscopy and colonoscopy in critically ill cardiac patients who complain of severe anemia in cardiac intensive care units by using a low dose of ketamine, which helps to reduce the side effects of etomidate, the most important of which is its suppressive effect on the adrenal gland and the secretion of cortisol in such critical cases, while maintaining hemodynamic stability, and the patient's satisfaction.
