However, rapid postoperative recovery is essential to assess neurologic function. Remifentanil, an ultra-short-acting mu-opioid receptor agonist, may be the ideal agent to confer the above characteristics. In this(More)

The experiments were performed double-blind in five subjects, using either 0.15% end-tidal sevoflurane in oxygen, or pure oxygen as a placebo. Saccades were recorded and analysed(More)
