BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Cost consciousness has become increasingly important in anaesthesia as elsewhere in healthcare. Cost-minimization with uncompromised patient safety and quality requires systematic comparisons of alternative techniques. Inhalation anaesthesia with desflurane or sevoflurane is compared in this study with propofol delivered by the target controlled infusion technique. Directly measured drug consumption and costs and emergence times are compared. METHODS Consumed… CONTINUE READING
