The purpose

This study is designed to compare the effects of alkalinized lidocaine in the endotracheal tube cuff to a bolus dose of remifentanil given prior to the emergence of anesthesia: - on the incidence of perioperative coughing - on the time needed for the emergence of a desflurane-based anesthesia - on the incidence of sore throat after extubation. The investigators hypothesis is that the use of alkalinized lidocaine in the endotracheal tube cuff will reduce the incidence of perioperative coughing after a desflurane-based anesthesia.

Provided treatments
