Summary

Primary Hypothesis: The use of a Precedex infusion, in addition to propofol during surgery, will improve patient management through the anesthesia postoperative recovery period determined by improvement in patients? tolerance of the endotracheal tube. Secondary hypothesis: The use of a Precedex infusion, in addition to propofol during surgery will provide improved hemodynamic stability.

Clinical Details

Official title: Comparison of Propofol Standard Anesthetic to Precedex With Propofol for Emergence and Recovery in Patients Having Craniotomy Surgery

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Prevention

Primary outcome: The use of Precedex for craniotomy surgery offers the potential for improved hemodynamic control and improved tolerance of the endotracheal tube, therefore potentially benefiting these patients.

Detailed description: The purpose of this study is to compare the addition of Precedex to a propofol intravenous anesthetic for emergence from anesthesia in patients having craniotomy surgery for brain tumors.
