Abstract

Summary

A technique of balanced anaesthesia involving propofol infusions and a rapidly metabolised opioid offers advantages over traditional anaesthetic techniques for eye surgery. The most appropriate mode of delivery of propofol is by a 'Diprifusor' target controlled infusion system. This paper discusses the use of a 'Diprifusor' target controlled infusion system for eye surgery. Published data are reviewed and the results of a retrospective analysis of 138 successive eye surgery patients are presented.
