Induction of anaesthesia with propofol and fentanyl can lead to marked reductions in mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR). Thus, the application of propofol in patients with severely reduced coronary artery perfusion is controversial. METHODS. The study group consisted of 60 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Anaesthesia was induced over 30 s with propofol (P 1.5 mg/kg), etomidate (E 0.3 mg/kg), or midazolam (M 0.15 mg/kg) following a bolus dose of fentanyl… CONTINUE READING
