Abstract

Pretreatment with small doses of fentanyl (100 μg) or alfentanil (300 μg) was found significantly to reduce the induction dose of thiopentone. Fentanyl 50 μg and alfentanil 150 μg also significantly reduced the onset time and increased the consistency of action of midazolam. Respiratory depression was not a problem when 50 μg fentanyl or 150 μg alfentanil were used.
