Table 2 Plasma propofol concentrations after induction of anesthesia, during sevoflurane maintenance, and after standing

From: Clinical effects of constant rate infusions of medetomidine–propofol combined with sevoflurane anesthesia in Thoroughbred racehorses undergoing arthroscopic surgery

Group After induction (µg/mL) Time after connection to breathing circuit (min) After standing (µg/mL)
15 (µg/mL) 30 (µg/mL) 45 (µg/mL)
MP3 0.7 ± 0.2A 1.1 ± 0.2B 1.2 ± 0.2B 1.2 ± 0.2B 0.4 ± 0.3C
MP6 0.6 ± 0.3A 2.4 ± 0.4B* 2.7 ± 0.3BC* 3.0 ± 0.4C* 0.7 ± 0.4AD
  1. Data are presented as mean ± SD
  2. Horses were maintained with sevoflurane and CRI of either medetomidine (3.0 μg/kg/h) and propofol (3.0 mg/kg/h) (Group MP3; n = 10) or medetomidine (3.0 μg/kg/h) and propofol (6.0 mg/kg/h) (Group MP6; n = 10)
  3. Data with the same superscript letters within the same row do not differ significantly from each other
  4. * Significant difference from Group MP3 (P < 0.05)
