Brief Summary:

Patients scheduled for elective cardiac surgery are preoperative evaluated using different personality type, stress and anxiety tests.

Patient are randomized to receive the investigators' standard moderate dose sufentanil (bolus 1microgram/kg and propofol 0.03 mg/kg/min) or low dose sufentanil (bolus 0.5 microgram/kg and propofol 0.06 mg/kg/min).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Postoperative; Dysfunction Following Cardiac Surgery Drug: Sufentanil I Drug: Sufentanil II Drug: Propofol I Drug: Propofol II Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Patients randomized and the type of induction informed to the anaesthetist 30 minutes before surgery.

Patients are monitored before induction of anesthesia. Propofol is started on the randomized infusion rate. Sufentanil bolus are given according to randomization. BIS level is followed. Time to reach BIS < 50 is monitored. BIS after 30, 60 and 90 minutes are registered. Lowest BIS during surgery are registered. Total amounts of sufentanil and propofol recorded.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Association between preoperative personality/stress/anxiety and time (minutes) to reach anaesthetic depth goal by bi-spectral index (BIS) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 minutes ]
    Minutes to reach BIS 50

  2. Potential of sufentanil regime on fast-track measured by ventilation time and association with eligible discharge from intensive care unit. [ Time Frame: Up to 24 hours ]
    Postoperative ventilation time (hours/minutes) and the association to eligible discharge from ICU.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sufentanil regime and association to haemodynamic parameters (blood pressures, heart rate, cardiac output, oxygenation) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]
    Perioperative changes in haemodynamic parameters (analysis of varians) of haemodynamic parameters according to sufentanil regime

  2. Association between preoperative personality/stress/anxiety tests and postoperative care using postoperative quality score [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]
    Association of preoperative tests and the postoperative ICU quality scoring

  3. Association between preoperative personality/stress/anxiety and total amounts of sufentanil and propofol [ Time Frame: Up to 12 hours ]
    Amounts of drugs as pr kg pr time unit of involved drugs
