Brief Summary:
Impact of intraoperative use of pneumatic peristaltic compression device on hemodynamics vis a vis on fluid requirement during general anaesthesia and surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fluid Overload Device: HUNTLEIGH FLOWTRON ACS900 Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Induction of general anaesthesia is associated with cardiac depression and peripheral vasodilatation resulting in hypotension .This hypotension can be corrected by giving intravenous fluid, or the vasoconstrictor. While optimum fluid balances in the perioperative period is of vital importance in overnight fasting patients to correct the fluid deficit, any fluid overload is not only counterproductive to the heart function but is associated with fluid retention in body and edema in postoperative period.

Peristaltic pneumatic compression device, a variant of intermittent sequential compression of legs, uses higher pressure and longer compression cycles to avoid venous stasis in immobilized patients. Sequential compression devices have sleeves with pockets of inflation, which works to squeeze on the appendage in a milking action .The most distal areas will inflate initially, and the subsequent pockets will follow in the same manner. The primary aim of the device is to squeeze blood from the underlying deep veins to proximal side. When the inflatable sleeves deflate, the veins will replenish with blood. The intermittent compressions of the sleeves will ensure the movement of venous blood . Peristaltic Pneumatic Compression of the legs significantly reduces fluid demand and enhances stability during minor ear, nose, and throat surgery. Peristaltic Pneumatic Compression has the potential to support fluid restriction regimens during surgery .

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: About 60 patients of age group 25 to 50 belonging to American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade 1 and 2 were allocated to either control or sequential pneumatic compression device group .Allocation was done by sealed envelop technique.In the operating room,in the control group,the device was placed on operating table and was placed next to the patients the intervention group,the device was placed over calves and inflated during induction of General Anaesthesia (GA) and maintenance.legs were draped in both the groups.Femoral vein velocities were assessed using ultrasound in preoperative period , intraoperatively 15 minutes after induction of anaesthesia and in post-operative period.
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Masking Description: Draping of the legs was done in both the groups.the care observer nor investigator were blinded for the allocation.
Primary Purpose: Prevention
