  Purpose

Tracheal extubation can be associated with hyperdynamic circulatory response. The investigators examined the effect of maintaining a remifentanil infusion on the cardiovascular response during extubation in propofol-remifentanil sedated patients after surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiovascular response during extubation [ Time Frame: 10 min ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    1. Heart rate and mean arterial pressure at extubation and 5, 10 min from extubation
    2. Coughing grade at extubation (0 = no coughing, 1 = a single cough, 2 = more than one episode of non-sustained coughing, 3 = sustained and repetitive coughing with head lift)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time of awake and extubation [ Time Frame: 1 hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Time of BIS > 80 : time between 'stopping of propofol' and Time of extubation : time between 'stopping of propofol' and 'extubation'


Estimated Enrollment: 50
