Assessment of the effect of clonidine on depth of anaesthesia is difficult because clonidine combines analgesic, sedative and direct haemodynamic effects. We thus evaluated the influence of clonidine on the bispectral index (BIS) and its potential dose-sparing effect on propofol. After induction of anaesthesia with target-controlled infusion of propofol and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the IVAC P7000 FASTSTART mode with regard to start-up performance in a 50-ml infusion syringe at a flow rate of 1 ml.h-1. METHODS The time from depression of the start button to first fluid flow (T1) and to establishment of a pre-set flow rate (T2) were gravimetrically recorded with and without FASTSTART and(More)
BACKGROUND We performed a bench experiment to investigate the extent of start-up delays in fluid delivery for four different syringe pumps after initially placing the infusion syringe in the syringe pump. METHODS Pump performance was determined at an infusion rate of 1 ml.h-1 with and without a fluid bolus delivered by the infusion pump prior to(More)
