BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE In some situations, the use of muscle relaxants (neuromuscular blocking drugs) are undesirable or contraindicated. We compared intubating conditions without muscle relaxants in premedicated patients receiving either alfentanil 40 microg kg(-1) or remifentanil 2, 3 or 4 microg kg(-1) followed by propofol 2 mg kg(-1). METHODS In a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE A variety of drugs and techniques have been introduced into ambulatory anaesthesia. The technique as well as the drugs used may hasten or delay home discharge. We compared recovery profiles and side-effects of spinal anaesthesia and total intravenous anaesthesia. METHODS Forty unpremedicated ASA I-II patients (18-65 yr) undergoing(More)
PURPOSE Administration of remifentanil followed by propofol provides adequate conditions for tracheal intubation without muscle relaxants. Other hypnotic drugs have not been thoroughly investigated in this regard. Intubating conditions with remifentanil followed by propofol, thiopentone or etomidate are compared in this study. METHODS In a randomized,(More)
Sixty unpremedicated outpatients undergoing elective extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) using a Dornier MPL 9000 lithotripter were randomly assigned to receive either propofol-alfentanil (PA group; N = 30) or midazolam-alfentanil (MA group; N = 30) by a patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) device for sedation and analgesia. Although pain intensity(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE We assessed the intraoperative haemodynamic responses and recovery profiles of total intravenous anaesthesia with remifentanil and alfentanil for outpatient surgery. METHODS Patients in Group 1 (n = 20) received alfentanil 20 microg kg(-1) followed by 2 microg kg(-1) min(-1) intravenously; patients in Group 2 (n = 20) received(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to assess the haemodynamic responses, adverse events and recovery characteristics associated with sevoflurane and ketamine-midazolam anaesthesia for paediatric extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy. METHODS Twenty children aged 2-11 years, who were undergoing two consecutive lithotripsy sessions at an interval of 4(More)
