BACKGROUND: Propofol has been used extensively for short-acting intravenous sedative agent during monitored anesthesia care (MAC). This study was designed to evaluate the safety and availability of MAC using propofol in implant surgery of the one-day admission patients. METHODS: In this study, subjects were divided into two groups according to ASA physical status. The heart rate, blood pressure, peripheral oxygen saturation and ECG of a patient were estimated under MAC by an anesthesiologist and the vital signs were recorded in recovery room periodically afterwards. The subjective satisfaction with regard to outpatient ambulatory surgery under MAC procedure was evaluated the next day. RESULTS: Systolic and diastolic blood pressure were significantly decreased during MAC in ASA I group, but other remarkable changes in vital sign were not observed. There was no significant difference in pain and anxiety level between ASA I and ASA II, III group. Satisfaction rate was high in both groups. CONCLUSION: Monitored-Anesthesia Care using propofol during implant surgery of the one-day admission patients might be safe and available procedure because heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation are stable before and during surgery, and adequate control of pain and anxiety is supported.
