Background Esophagogastroduodenal endoscopy EGD and colonoscopy are among the most alfentanil dose syringe utilized procedures worldwide that are performed with intravenous sedation, so effective sedation with prompt recovery is important.


Methods Patient selection and study design This was a single-center, prospective, randomized, and double-blinded study of consecutive patients undergoing diagnostic EGD and colonoscopy for health examination between July and June Figure 1. Flow diagram alfentanil dose syringe the study.


Full size image. Results Study population and baseline characteristics There were patients, who were eligible for inclusion in the study, of whom 12 were excluded 7 in alfentanil group and 5 in fentanyl group alfentanil dose syringe poor bowel preparation.

Table 4 Patient satisfaction surveys Full size table. Discussion This study is the first randomized, double blind controlled trial to compare the efficacy and the safety of small dose alfentanil and fentanyl in BPS titrated to deep sedation for health examination patients undergoing diagnostic endoscopy.

Anesthesia for craniotomy: a double-blind comparison of alfentanil, fentanyl, and sufentanil.

Similarly, the recommended bolus doses of alfentanil alfentanil dose syringe 0. Alfentanil was embryocidal when administered to pregnant rabbits during organogenesis at No malformations were noted in rats or rabbits treated with Alfentanil during organogenesis [see Data ]. The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown.

All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes. In the U.

Prolonged use of opioid analgesics during pregnancy for medical or nonmedical purposes can result in physical dependence in the neonate and neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome shortly after birth. Neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome presents as irritability, hyperactivity and abnormal sleep pattern, high pitched cry, tremor, vomiting, diarrhea and failure to gain weight. The onset, duration, and severity of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome vary based on the specific opioid used, duration of use, timing and amount of last maternal use, and rate of elimination of the drug by the newborn. Observe alfentanil dose syringe for symptoms of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome and manage accordingly [see Warnings and Precautions 5.

Opioids cross the placenta and may produce respiratory depression and psycho-physiologic effects in neonates. An opioid antagonist, such as naloxone, must be available for reversal of opioid-induced respiratory depression in the neonate. Alfentanil HCl Injection is not recommended for alfentanil dose syringe in pregnant women during or immediately prior to labor, when other analgesic techniques are more appropriate. Opioid analgesics, including Alfentanil HCl Injection, can prolong labor through actions which temporarily reduce the strength, duration, and frequency of uterine alfentanil dose syringe.

Chest secretions or colic Dose: micrograms to micrograms over 24 hours. Chest secretions, bowel obstruction colic, vomiting Dose: 40mg to mg over 24 hours.

Chest secretions Dose: micrograms to micrograms over 24 hours. Relief of pain and inflammation Dose: 75mg to mg over 24 hours. Additionally, based on the amount of propofol needed for maintenance Table 2we suggest that propofol should be administered continuously with a minimum alfentanil dose syringe of 6 mg kg -1 h Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine: 4 4 ; e Published Online: September 3, Article Type: Research Article. Received: April 5, Revised: May 12, Administration of alfentanil dose syringe with 2. However, the dose of alfentanil significantly affected the duration of apnea, which can be a nuisance in the anesthetized patient when spontaneous ventilation is planned.

Therefore, a minimum effective dose should be used.
