Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to full recovery

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Operating conditions
  • Pain or discomfort

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: July 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2005
Detailed Description:
Propofol is a recognised agent for sedation and remifentanil is a short acting opioid analgesic. We intend to provide sedation with propofol, 0.5 mg/Kg, and analgesia with remifentanil 0.5 microgram/Kg for reduction of dislocated shoulders. This will be a randomised sex-stratified comparison with current therapy which is midazolam incrementally up to a maximum of 0.15 mg/Kg, and morphine incrementally up to 0.15 mg/Kg. The primary outcome measure is time to full recovery. Secondary aspects are pain or discomfort during the procedure and operating conditions.
