    Author(s): Rajeev Kumar, Anshu Pangotra* and Vinod Verma

    Background and Aim Nalbuphine has been used intrathecally as an adjuvant in previous studies. The purpose of our study was to establish the effectiveness of intrathecal nalbuphine as an adjuvant to bupivacaine for prevention of shivering during spinal anesthesia in patients undergoing TURP. Materials and Methods In this prospective, randomized, double-blinded, controlled study, 200 ASA class I and II patients undergoing TURP under Subarachnoid Block (SAB), were randomly allocated to two groups: C and N. Group C received 0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine 2.5 mlintrathecally. While group N received 2.5 ml of a mixture of 400 microgram nalbuphine plus hyperbaric bupivacaine (0.5%). Haemodynamic parameters along with core tympanic temperature were recorded preoperatively then every 10 minutes till the end of surgery. The incidence .. View More»
