Abstract

Cardiac patient for non cardiac surgery has since forever been a topic of interest for the anaesthesiologist. Few cases have only been reported with their own suitable line of management, however the simultaneous use of combined epidural spinal anaesthesia and Dexmedetomidine, an ?2 agonist has been studied by only a handful. Use of epidural for incremental doses of local anaesthetic for allaying the postoperative pain and thereby reducing the occurrence of ischemic events is also being described.

Keywords: Ischaemic Heart Disease, Epidural Anaesthesia, Ejection Fraction, Dexmedetomidine.
