Monitoring Exhaled Propofol to Individualize General Anesthesia (EPIGA)
This trial investigates the relationship between concentrations of the anesthetic drug propofol in exhaled breath, blood and drug effect in volunteers undergoing general anesthesia. The main goal of this study is to develop a pharmacokinetic - and dynamic model for propofol in exhaled breath.
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study
