Abstract

Background: Preanesthetic medication is important among the paediatric patients undergoing surgeries. A good preanesthetic medication reduces the anxiety and the post-operative pain among paediatric patients.
Materials and Methods: A randomised controlled trial was done to compare the two groups of Dexmedetomidine, and Midazolam given as preanesthetic medication intranasally.
Results: Both the groups had comparable baseline values before premedication but there was a significant difference in the vital parameters of heart rate and systolic blood pressure after medication. The mean Parental Separation Anxiety Scale was found to be 1.4 ± 0.85 and 2.5 ± 0.98 among Dexmedetomidine and Midazolam group respectively. This was found to be significant (p < 0> Conclusion: Dexmedetomidine when given as preanesthetic medication intranasally significantly controls the vitals within the normal range and produces better parental separation anxiety scores and mask acceptance scores as compared to Midazolam.
