This table describes the patient demographics and hemodynamic parameters of the PR and SR groups and includes age, gender, duration of surgery, duration of anesthesia, oral or intranasal steroid use, systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements, and estimated blood loss.
Parameters PR group (n=12) SR group (n=11) p-value
Age 51.3 ± 16.2 50.3 ± 16.0 0.89
Gender (male) 7 (58.3%) 6 (54.5%) 0.86
Duration of surgery (hours) 2.4 ± 1.2 3.6 ± 1.8 0.07
Duration of anesthesia (hours) 3.3 ± 1.3 4.7 ± 2.0 0.06
Oral steroids (%) 3 (25.0%) 7 (63.6%) 0.06
Intranasal steroids (%) 3 (25%) 5 (45.5%) 0.30
Systolic blood pressure (mm Hg) 140.8 ± 19.5 132.1 ± 15.6 0.25
Diastolic blood pressure (mm Hg) 80.3 ± 10.0 79.6 ± 11.0 0.89
EBL (cc) 152.9 ± 161.3 355.9 ± 393.4 0.12
EBL > 200 cc (%) 4 (33.3%) 5 (45.5%) 0.55
Data are presented as mean SD. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups. SD = Standard Deviation; EBL = Estimated Blood Loss; PR = propofol/remifentanyl; SR = sevoflurane/remifentanyl.
