Inhaling nitrous oxide (N(2)O) before propofol induction appears to decrease propofol usage. To investigate the efficacy of N(2)O as a component of the drugs used to induce anesthesia, the effect of inhaling a N(2)O:oxygen (O(2)) mixture on the dose of propofol required to induce anesthesia was determined in a double-blinded manner. We randomized 117 unpremedicated patients scheduled for elective surgery into three groups. Group FN received 1 microg/kg fentanyl and breathed 4 L/min N(2)O + 2 L… CONTINUE READING
