Gastric emptying after minor gynaecological surgery. The effect of anaesthetic technique

, : Gastric emptying after minor gynaecological surgery. The effect of anaesthetic technique. Anaesthesia 47(4): 297-299

Gastric emptying was measured using the paracetamol absorption method in 30 patients immediately after a general anaesthetic for minor gynaecological surgery and in 10 female controls. Anaesthesia was induced with either propofol alone, propofol and alfentanil (4.5 or propofol and fentanyl (1.4 and maintained with intermittent propofol and 66% nitrous oxide in oxygen. Gastric emptying was delayed significantly in all patient groups when compared with volunteers. However, the delay in gastric emptying was similar in the three patient groups.
