Abstract

Tracheal extubation in the post coronary artery bypass graft patient is followed by intense cardiovascular stimulation persisting for at least ten minutes, and intravenous lidocaine (1.5 mg/kg) does not alter these changes. It is concluded that even though no patient in this study developed arrhythmia, angina, or infarction during or following extubation, their potential would seem apparent from the results. Thus, cardiovascular monitoring would be appropriate following extubation in these patients.
