We defined the propofol concentration required for loss of consciousness and showed that it is reduced by increasing fentanyl concentration and by increasing age. The propofol concentration (alone) adequate for skin incision is high but is markedly reduced by fentanyl. A ceiling effect in the Cp50i for propofol is seen with fentanyl concentrations greater than 3 ng/ml.
