ation of remifentanil and the possibility of endotracheal intubation was as following: Probit (P) = - 1.38 (S.E.: 0.58) + 0.087 (S.E.: 0.23) x DRemi. The ED50 of remifentanil for endotracheal intubation without muscle relaxants was 2.12 (95% confidence interval: 1.42-2.62)microgram/kg and the ED95 was 4.01 (95% confidence interval: 3.31-5.92)microgram/kg.
We concluded that adequate dose of remifentanil which make possible to endotracheal intubation without muscle relaxants after induction of general anesthesia with 1.5 mg/kg of propofol is 4.01microgram/kg in 95% of female patients and 2.12microgram/kg in 50% of female patients.
