PMID:  11916797     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 34-h remifentanil infusion was administered for labor analgesia in a patient with thrombocytopenia and renal insufficiency. Compared with other opioids, remifentanil may produce fewer cumulative effects during prolonged infusion because of its unique metabolism.
