Daily sedation interruption and targeting light sedation levels are safe and proven to improve outcomes for sedated ICU patients when these approaches result in reduced sedative exposure and facilitate arousal.[sup][20] Total intravenous anesthesia with TCI system has been used in clinical anesthesia.[sup][21],[22],[23],[24],[25],[26],[27],[28],[29],[30],[31] In an individual patient, titration of the target setting to achieve the depth of sedation desired is necessary, and the ease and precision of this titration is facilitated by the TCI system.
