Midazolam and propofol were compared in an open randomized study for postoperative sedation during 12 h of mechanical ventilation in 40 patients following coronary artery bypass grafting. After an intravenous loading dose of midazolam (50 μg · kg−1) or propofol (500 μg · kg−1), a titrated continuous infusion was administered of midazolam (mean dose 38.1 μg · kg−1 · h−1 (SEM 2.6)) or propofol (mean dose 909 μg · kg−1 · h−1 (SEM 100)) together with a narcotic analgesic infusion. During mechanical… CONTINUE READING
