Patients required a mean blood propofol concentration of 4.05 +/- 1.01 mcg/mL for major surgery and 2.97 +/- 1.07 mcg/mL for non-major surgery. Blood propofol concentrations at which 50% of patients were awake and oriented after surgery were 1.07 and 0.95 mcg/mL espectively.
Psychomotor performance returned to baseline at blood propofol concentrations of 0.38 – 0.43 mcg/mL.
