A femoral neck fracture is a common and frequently-occurring disease in orthopedics, with a high incidence in the elderly population. For elderly patients with a femoral neck fracture, due to their older age and more basic diseases, the difficulty of anesthesia and surgery is increased. General anesthesia can easily induce complications such as cognitive dysfunction, which is not conducive to postoperative recovery.
This study analyzed the anesthetic effect of dexmedetomidine in elderly patients undergoing hip replacement.
This study aimed to provide a reference for the prognosis and anesthesia of clinical-related surgeries.
A total of 98 elderly patients undergoing hip replacement were randomly divided into control group and observation group. Both groups were observed until the patients were discharged. The vital signs, serum inflammatory factors and renal function indexes of the two groups were compared before, during and 6 h after operation.
Dexmedetomidine has good safety and good anesthetic effect.
Dexmedetomidine can effectively improve the vital signs of elderly patients undergoing hip replacement, reduce the body's inflammatory response, reduce renal function damage, and promote postoperative recovery. At the same time, it has good safety and good anesthetic effect.
This study indicates that diazepam has good application prospects in elderly patients undergoing hip replacement surgery. Future research can further explore the anesthesia effect and safety of diazepam, search for more optimized anesthesia plans, and improve the success rate of hip replacement surgery in elderly patients.
