A High Resolution Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic Model of Propofol in Morbidly Obese Subjects
This study will determine how morbid obesity affects the distribution and metabolism of the drug propofol. The investigators hypothesize that propofol will be distributed and metabolized differently in morbidly obese subjects as compared to normal weight subjects.
