Art / Science of Propofol-Remifentanil Infusions for Office-based, Open Airway Anesthesia - 504
This presentation will introduce the art of administering a propofol-remifentanil admixture by microbolus and continuous infusion to achieve a dose-dependent choice of moderate sedation, deep sedation or general anesthesia. Doses, caveats, limitations, complications and monitoring during this exciting technique will be reviewed. The premise is obvious: when used properly, this technique markedly improves anesthetic control for both short and long cases, thereby increasing safety.
- Describe the clinical actions of remifentanil.
- Summarize the dose requirements and administration technique for a remifentanil propofol admixture.
- Explain and discuss at least 5 potential complications and their management when using the propofol-remifentanil anesthetic technique.
