Lower Dose of Sufentanil Does Not Enhance Fast Track Significantly—A Randomized Study

Lower Dose of Sufentanil Does Not Enhance Fast Track Significantly—A Randomized Study ObjectiveAdjustment in the doses of opioids has been a focus of interest for achieving better fast-track conditions in cardiac anesthesia, but relatively sparse information exists on the potential effect of psychologic and behavioral factors, such as stress, anxiety, and type of personality, on anesthesia requirements and patient turnover in the cardiac recovery unit (CRU); to the authors’ knowledge, this particular focus has not been systematically investigated. In this randomized study, the authors tested the hypothesis that low-dose sufentanil, compared with a standard dose, can improve fast-track parameters and the overall quality of recovery. Opioid requirements related to personality type, pain sensitivity, and preoperative stress and anxiety also were assessed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia Elsevier

Abstract

ObjectiveAdjustment in the doses of opioids has been a focus of interest for achieving better fast-track conditions in cardiac anesthesia, but relatively sparse information exists on the potential effect of psychologic and behavioral factors, such as stress, anxiety, and type of personality, on anesthesia requirements and patient turnover in the cardiac recovery unit (CRU); to the authors’ knowledge, this particular focus has not been systematically investigated. In this randomized study, the authors tested the hypothesis that low-dose sufentanil, compared with a standard dose, can improve fast-track parameters and the overall quality of recovery. Opioid requirements related to personality type, pain sensitivity, and preoperative stress and anxiety also were assessed.
