Abstract

Reflex Bradycardia and Cardiac Arrest Following Sigmoidoscopy under General Anesthesia

Reflex bradycardia is a rare but well recognized complication that may occur during anesthesia. Anesthestic drugs, surgical stimuli and hypoxia can be its triggering agents. There are many factors that augment this entity and may result in severe bradycardia or arrest. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on the development of asystole during sigmoidoscopy under general anesthesia.
