Abstract

This study was carried on two groups each of 10 patients undergoing major maxillofacial or orthopedic operations. Hypotensive anesthesia was conducted using SNP and labetalol. Labetalol produced hypotension without tachycardia which was evident in the SNP group. Blood sugar increased significantly in both groups. Serum insulin level decreased significantly in the SNP group, while in the labetalol group it showed an insignificant increase.
