The objective of this study was to determine a dosing regimen for remifentanil-sevoflurane anaesthesia that achieves an optimal balance between quality of anaesthesia and time to recovery. Patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy were randomly allocated to receive 0.4, 0.8 or 1.2 MAC (minimal alveolar concentration) of sevoflurane combined with remifentanil as required to maintain stable anaesthesia. For induction of anaesthesia, the remifentanil dose was 25 microg x kg(-1) x h… CONTINUE READING
