BACKGROUND Economics has caused the trend of early tracheal extubation after cardiac surgery, yet no prospective randomized study has directly validated that early tracheal extubation anesthetic management decreases costs when compared with late extubation after cardiac surgery. METHODS This prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial was designed to evaluate the cost savings of early (1-6 h) versus late tracheal extubation (12-22 h) in patients after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG… CONTINUE READING
