HIDE SMILES / InChI
Remifentanil (marketed by Abbott as Ultiva) is a potent ultra short-acting synthetic opioid analgesic drug. It is given to patients during surgery to relieve pain and as an adjunct to an anaesthetic. ULTIVA is a µ-opioid agonist with rapid onset and peak effect, and short duration of action. The µ-opioid activity of ULTIVA is antagonized by opioid antagonists such as naloxone. ULTIVA is indicated for IV administration: 1. As an analgesic agent for use during the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia for inpatient and outpatient procedures. 2. For continuation as an analgesic into the immediate postoperative period in adult patients under the direct supervision of an anesthesia practitioner in a postoperative anesthesia care unit or intensive care setting. 3. As an analgesic component of monitored anesthesia care in adult patients.

PRIMARY Remifentanil is used for sedation as well as combined with other medications for use in general anesthesia. Remifentanil is used as an opioid analgesic that has a rapid onset and rapid recovery time. It has been used effectively during craniotomies, spinal surgery, cardiac surgery, and gastric bypass surgery. While opiates function similarly, with respect to analgesia, the pharmacokinetics of remifentanil allows for quicker post-operative recovery.
