Effects of Anesthetics on Cardiac Repolarization in Adults: A Network Meta-Analysis of Randomized Clinical Trials

CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis found that propofol had a minimal effect on QTc prolongation, followed by sevoflurane and desflurane in adults with normal QTc interval and without cardiovascular diseases. Propofol is the best anesthetic for adult patients with long QT syndrome or cardiac diseases, but still needs more robust evidence.PMID:38178332 | DOI:10.59958/hsf.6969
