Abstract

Anesthesia for non-cardiac surgeries in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy with other co-morbidities is a challenging situation for anesthetists. The choice of anesthesia and anesthetic agents should be judicious and balanced to maintain optimum cardiac output and to avoid myocardial depression for a successful postoperative outcome. Here, we describe the anesthetic management for emergency exploratory laparotomy in a patient who was suffering from ischemic cardiomyopathy along with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and was presented to the emergency operation theater for gastrointestinal tract perforation.
