I. Assess the degree of amnesia afforded by study sedatives relative to the patient's intensive care unit experiences.
II. Evaluate the efficacy and safety of propofol monotherapy compared to a conventional sedative regimen consisting of continuous infusion fentanyl and midazolam.
This is a randomized, double blind study.
Patients are randomized to receive either a continuous infusion of propofol or a continuous infusion combination of fentanyl and midazolam preceded by a loading dose. Sedative doses may be reduced if necessary. Treatment is continued until sedation is no longer needed, any other sedative therapy is administered, or unacceptable toxicity is experienced.
Patients are assessed after extubation, just prior to hospital discharge, and then every 2 months for 6 months after hospital discharge.
Allocation: Randomized, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Angiotensin II (Ang II) has been shown to be involved in neurological disorders. Propofol demonstrated neuroprotective effects in neurons.
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION).
Diseases of the respiratory system in general or unspecified or for a specific respiratory disease not available.
