Hello Vitaldb

First of all, thanks for these amazing works and sharing.

I want to ask about finding data in Data Bank. 

I just want to sorting out the db which is masured only with use of infusion of propofol. 

I guess that i can find that data looking at the Orchestra/PPF20_VOL since it means the infused propofol volume. 

However, patient might be anesthized by both of propofol and other anesthetics like sevoflurane. So, Im looking other index like Primus/MAC or Primus/INSP_SEVO too. 

So, for example I found that case ID 218 has no MAC and INSP_SEVO but has PPF20_VOL.  Is it ture that ID 218 was fully anesthzied only by propofol ? Anything that im missing the points ?

Or, it is so greatful to let me know the method of figuring out which anethetics patient had gotten. 

Thank you in advance, always admires about what you have done.

The patient with ID 218 was anesthetized using TIVA (total intravenous anesthesia) -TCI (target-controlled infusion) technique, and the drugs used for TIVA-TCI were propofol and remifentanil.
In most cases of general anesthesia, sevoflurane, desflurane, propofol and/or remifentanil were used as primary anesthetics.
If you want to understand more about the data, we recommend that you consult with an anesthesiologist or work with them.
