We have studied the pulmonary extraction and retention of sufentanil, alfentanil and morphine using a double indicator technique in 30 patients undergoing elective aortocoronary bypass surgery. Patients were allocated to three groups (10 each) to receive sufentanil 43 micrograms, alfentanil 672 micrograms or morphine 1887 micrograms, mixed with indocyanine green as indicator. After sufentanil, mean peak extraction was 93.7% (95% confidence interval 87.1-100.4%) and release occurred after 16.1… CONTINUE READING
