Case Study
The article describes the case of an 83-year-old woman who had undergone anaesthesia with propofol, developed post-operative resedation following concomitant administration of flumazenil. After her cardiac surgery, she was monitored and became responsive also after receiving naloxone in preparation for endotracheal tube removal. After further consciousness improvement, she was administered flumazenil 0.2mg to counter any residual midazolam effect.
