Abstract

Background: Emergence agitation (EA) is a clinical condition that occurs early in recovery from general anaesthesia, and reduces patient comfort. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of low-flow sevoflurane anaesthesia and total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) on agitation in rhinoplasty patients, and to determine the frequency of EA in low flow sevoflurane anaesthesia after rhinoplasty.
