Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), growth hormone (GH), and cardiovascular responses to large (anesthetic) doses of alfentanil (1.2 +/- 0.02 mg/kg) and oxygen and sufentanil (13.1 +/- 0.4 microgram/kg) and oxygen were measured before and during surgery (including cardiopulmonary bypass) and at the end of surgery in 29 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. The data demonstrate that alfentanil-O2 and sufentanil-O2 result in little change in cardiovascular dynamics throughout anesthesia and surgery, and also prevent changes in plasma levels of ADH and GH at all times during the study...

For the purposes of this study, sulfentanil is administered to conscious men in increasing doses (0,00015, 0,0003, 0,0006 mg/kg) by intra-muscular injection, and the results are compared with those obtained in the same condition by administration of morphine (0,100, 0,150, 0,200 mg/kg). The administration of both drugs provokes the same side-effects. The failure of the breathing rate is as fast as observed following the administration of morphine in equi-analgesic doses. As in the case of analgesia, the time taken for the falling off of the breathing rate to occur, and its duration are shorter with sulfentanil, than with morphine...

In the case of a conscious man suffering from a painful injury in the facial and trigeminal nerves, the administration of intra-muscular injections of increasing doses of morphine and sulfentanil provokes constant analgesia in direct proportion to the administered dose. The admitted dosages for each product are as follows. M = 0,100, 0,150, 0,200 mg/kg S = 0,00015, 0,0003, 0,0006 mg/kg. Sulfentanil is a highly active analgesic whose activity is about 333 times greater than that of morphine and 13 times greater than that of fentanyl...

The haemodynamic effects of equi-anaesthetic doses of alphaprodine and sulfentanil were evaluated in mongrel dogs ventilated mechanically. The effects of the addition of atropine were assessed for each drug, as were the effects of breathing nitrous oxide 60 per cent with oxygen and nitrogen 60 per cent with oxygen and the administration of naloxone. The results of this study demonstrate that anaesthetic doses of sulfentanil produce little change in cardiovascular dynamics in atropinized dogs and only small changes in dogs without atropine premedication, irrespective of the infusion rate...

Ataranalgesia (ATA) is realized by the association of a strong morphinomimetic, a benzodiazepine (BZD) and a curare. It is an anesthesia technique derived from neuroleptanalgesia, one of the most employed modern anesthesia techniques. In this formula, midazolam, a hydrosoluble BZD, with a rapid onset of action and a shorter duration of action than the other substances of this group (diazepam or flunitrazepam) was rapidly introduced. For the induction of an ATA, we mix in the same syringe the loading doses of the BZD, the opiate (fentanyl, alfentanil or sulfentanil) and the curare (pancuronium or atracurium) and we administer them simultaneously...

Equipotent analgesic doses of sulfentanil and fentanyl showed similar effects in 281 cases of clinical neuroleptanalgesia. In rabbits equimolecular doses of sulfentanil induced a deeper narcotic effect (burst suppression) than fentanyl. This supports the thesis of a coincidental increase of analgesic potency and narcotic effect in agonistic opioids. In equipotent doses the conventional EEG and the amplitude-frequency-spectra are equal. Quantificated analyses and statistical calculations show essentially similar changes in animal: - Fentanyl as well as sulfentanil changes only the dominant frequency in the theta-bands...
