During the induction of anaesthesia there creates cardiovascular depression and causes stress which are mainly due to endotracheal intubation. These are the key elements that are to be considered especially for patients who are under cardiac risk. In this study group-E (Etomidate), anaesthesia was induced with Etomidate 0.3mg/kg and after 30 seconds Atracurium 0.5mg/kg was injected similarly group T patients were injected with thiopentone 3mg/kg and after 30 seconds Atracurium 0.5mg/kg was injected. From the results it was confirmed that etomidate is safer than thiopental in terms of providing haemodynamic stability to the patient during induction and post intubation.
