Bispectral Index (BIS) Values Required for an Adequate Depth of Anesthesia in Elderly Patients Using Propofol

A correlation between the bispectral index values and electroencephalographic patterns at the loss of consciousness (LOC) when using propofol in elderly patients, has not been determined. ...

Continuous and Discontinuous Determination of Propofol Concentration in Breathing Gas

This study should compare the propofol concentration in breathing gas and in plasma (before and) after lung passage. Propofol concentrations in breathing gas are continuously measured by a...

Spirometric Predicted Values in Bolivia

There is no local predicted values for spirometry available in Bolivia. The aim of the present study is to establish moderne predicted values for healthy non-smokers recruited in a major c...

Sufentanil Bispectral Index Elderly

We compared BIS values during propofol stepwise induction with or without concomitant sufentanil in patients ≥ 65 years .

The Effect of the ALDH2 Gene Polymorphism on the Propofol Potency for Inducing Loss of Consciousness

The aim of this study is to determine whether ALDH2 gene polymorphisms (G/G, G/A A/A) have effect on the potency of propofol.

Pharmacokinetic Analysis of Propofol Target-Controlled Infusion Models in Chinese Patients with Hepatic Insufficiency.

BACKGROUND Effects of liver dysfunction on target-controlled infusion (TCI) with Marsh parameters of propofol remain poorly documented. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of pro...

Characterization of cardiovascular depression effect for propofol during anesthesia induction period on morbidly obese patients.

This study aims to determine the pharmacodynamics (PD) effect (measured by cardiovascular depression) of propofol during anesthesia induction period on morbidly obese (MO) patients. Four hemodynamics ...

Prediction of tissue concentrations of monoclonal antibodies in mice from plasma concentrations.

The objectives of this study were to develop and evaluate allometric methods for predicting tissue-to-plasma partition coefficients (Kp) in mice from experimentally determined in-vivo volume of distri...

Routine hemodialysis induces a decline in plasma magnesium concentration in most patients: a prospective observational cohort study.

In hemodialysis patients, lower plasma magnesium (Mg) concentrations are associated with a higher overall and cardiovascular mortality. The optimal concentration appears to be above the reference rang...

Patterns of Hysteresis Between Induction and Emergence of Neuroanesthesia are Present in Spinal and Intracranial Surgeries.

Recovery of consciousness is usually seen as a passive process, with emergence from anesthesia depicted as the inverse process of induction resulting from the elimination of anesthetic drugs from thei...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A principle of estimation in which the estimates of a set of parameters in a statistical model are those quantities minimizing the sum of squared differences between the observed values of a dependent variable and the values predicted by the model.

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.

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.

The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.

Volume of PLASMA in the circulation. It is usually measured by INDICATOR DILUTION TECHNIQUES.
