The aim of this study is to compare the accuracy of the changes in CVI in response to a standardized noxious stimulus during various targeted pseudo-steady-state concentrations of remifentanil and various steady state level of BIS as guided by propofol effect compartment controlled TCI (closed-loop).
Patients will be allocated to recieve a specific effect-site concentration of remifentanil and propofol. For remifentanil, concentrations will be targeted at 0, 2, 4 and 6 ng/ml. After an equilibration period, anesthesia will be induced in all patients using propofol in order to reach and maintain a BIS value of 70, 50 or 30. After an equilibration period(from start of propofol infusion), OAA/S will be measured in all patient. All patients will receive a standard pain stimulus (30 seconds, 50 mA) in order to observe the influence of the effect-site concentration of propofol and remifentanil on the CVI. A time window of 5 minutes after the stimulus will be respected to observe the changes in both BIS and CVI. After this period, the study will be terminated and classical maintenance of anesthesia will be provided.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
propofol + remifentanil 0 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 2 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 4 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 6 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 0 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 2 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil 6 ng/ml, propofol + remifentanil

Perioperative incidence of airway obstructive and hypoxemic events in patients with confirmed or suspected sleep apnea - a prospective, randomized pilot study comparing propofol/remifentanil and sevoflurane/remifentanil anesthesia.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a risk factor for perioperative complications but data on anesthesia regimen are scarce.
To survey (a) the frequency of the use of patient-controlled analgesic remifentanil-PCA during labour in the Netherlands; (b) considerations by obstetricians whether or not to offer remifentanil-PCA; ...
To compare the effects of propofol/remifentanil and meperidine/midazolam on postprocedure cognitive function.
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.
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 anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
