remifentanil

Ultiva® Anesthesiology An opioid anesthetic that is 250-fold more potent than morphine. See Opioid anesthetic. Cf Muscle relaxant.

remifentanil

A narcotic painkiller used during the induction or maintenance of general anaesthesia. The use of painkillers during general anaesthesia is not, as it may seem, pointless. Painful stimuli act on the autonomic nervous system causing effects that can interfere with the smooth conduct of the anaesthetic and the post-operative period. A brand name is Ultiva.

All patients were sedated with remifentanil (Ultiva [R], GlaxoSmithKline, UK) and propofol (Fresofol [R], Fresenius Kabi Korea Ltd, Korea) infusion through a commercial total intravenous anaesthesia pump (Orchestra [R] Base Primea, Fresenius-Vial, France).
Two three-way stopcock valves were used to connect the intravenous catheter to the maintenance lactated Ringer's (LR) delivery line and to the lines delivering propofol 1% (Fresenius Kabi, Bad Homburg, Germany) and remifentanil 20 [micro]g[mL.sup.-1] (Ultiva, GSK, Midlessex, UK).
