This study demonstrates that large doses of fentanyl, as the sole anaesthetic with ventilation with oxygen, produces complete anaesthesia and minimal changes in cardiovasuclar dynamics in patients with coronary artery disease. It also indicates that high dose fentanyl anaesthesia blocks the increase in plasma anti-diuretic hormone and cardiovascular dynamics which are so common with morphine and other anaesthetic techniques during tracheal intubation and surgical stimulation in patients with… CONTINUE READING
