A Low Dose Remifentanil Infusion During Tracheal Extubation in Surgical Intensive Care Unit Patients

2014-07-24 14:00:51 | BioPortfolio


Tracheal extubation can be associated with hyperdynamic circulatory response. The investigators examined the effect of maintaining a remifentanil infusion on the cardiovascular response during extubation in propofol-remifentanil sedated patients after surgery.
