The technique of computer-assisted continuous infusion (CACI) has revolutionised the administration of drugs by intravenous infusion. A stable blood concentration is achieved rapidly with CACI, allowing the anesthesiologist to monitor therapeutic effect and titrate drug concentrations accordingly. Propofol and opioids can be administered by CACI for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia in adult patients. Also, the ability to maintain a constant blood concentration of drugs is also extremely important for studying the pharmacodynamic interactions of drugs, and research in the area has increased with advent of CACI. We experienced a case of total intravenous anesthesia which was totally conducted by CACI, using a Master TCI for propofol and Stelpump program for fentanyl infusion.
Key Words: Anesthetics, intravenous, fentanyl, propofol; Equipment, computer assisted continuous infusion
