  • PurposeTo access the effect of propofol administration on sleep quality in critically ill patients ventilated on assisted modes.MethodsThis was a randomized crossover physiological study conducted in an adult ICU at a tertiary hospital. Two nights’ polysomnography was performed in mechanically ventilated critically ill patients with and without propofol infusion, while respiratory variables were continuously recorded. Arterial blood gasses were measured in the beginning and at the end of the… CONTINUE READING
