Effect of Remimazolamin in the anesthesia of hip replacement

Author(s): Nida Fatima*

To explore the anesthetic and analgesic effects of remimazolam and propofol in elderly patients undergoing hip replacement and their effects on respiratory and circulatory systems, stress and cognitive function. Methods 60 elderly patients undergoing elective hip replacement in the hospital were selected as the research subjects, who were divided into the remimazolam group and the propofol group according to the admission sequence of patients. The remimazolam group was anesthetized with remimazolam, and the propofol group was anesthetized with propofol. The anesthesia-related indicators, perioperative pain degree Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), circulatory indicators heart rate, Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) before anesthesia (T0), immediately before laryngeal mask insertion (T1), at 5 min after laryngeal mask insertion (T2), at 30 min after laryngeal mask insertion (T3) and at 5 min after laryngeal mask removal (T4), stress response indicators (plasma epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol) before anesthesia induction and at 24 h and 72 h after surgery, cognitive function Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and adverse reactions were compared between the two groups. Compared with propofol, remimazolam can achieve equivalent anesthetic and analgesic effects in elderly patients undergoing hip replacement. However, the latter one can significantly relieve respiratory and circulatory suppression, stress response and cognitive dysfunction, with good safety.
