OBJECTIVES This clinical study tested the hypothesis whether intraoperative high versus low dose of intravenous remifentanil resulted in postoperatively increased pain sensitivity to painful cold or pressure stimulation in eye surgery patients without significant postoperative pain. METHODS Forty-two minor eye surgery patients were randomized to receive intraoperative high (0.4 microg/kg/min) or low (0.1 microg/kg/min) dose of intravenous remifentanil plus isoflurane over an average period of… CONTINUE READING
