Anesthesia by continuous infusion of propofol with remifentanil in cats pretreated with acepromazineThe present work evaluated the anesthetic association of propofol, an ultra-short acting general anesthetic with a fast metabolism, with remifentanil, an opioid of great analgesic potency that is used as adjunct to general anesthetics. The main objective was to develop a safe protocol of intravenous continuous infusion capable of providing comfort for the patient with great analgesic action and muscle relaxation for cats subjected to elective surgeries like ovariohysterectomy and orchiectomy. Thirty cats were randomly distributed in 3 groups of 10 animals each. All animals were tranquilized with acepromazine (0.1 mg/kg IM) and general anesthesia was induced using propofol (6mg/kg, IV). In group 1, general anesthesia was maintained by continuous infusion of propofol (0.6 mg/kg/min); in group 2, with propofol (0.4 mg/kg/min) and remifentanil (0.1 µg/kg/min) and; in group 3, with propofol (0.4 mg/kg/min) and remifentanilRecebido para publicação em dezembro de 2007 e aprovado em soutubro de 2010
