Unhealthy Alcohol Drinking and Anesthetic Requirement in Women

2014-08-27 03:28:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Unhealthy alcohol drinking is negatively influencing health of people and costing a large number of annual finance via "secondhand" effects. Additionally, unhealthy alcohol use covers a spectrum that is associated with varying degrees of risk to health. The investigators hypothesized that unhealthy alcohol drinking resulted in significant increase in anesthetic requirement during general anesthesia. This investigation would clarify the association between unhealthy alcohol use and the intraoperative consumption of anesthetics, and provide clinical evidence for preoperative assessment with respect to the alcohol drinking habit.
