  1. Age, weight, height, body mass index (BMI), and surgery time are shown as means and 95% confidence intervals. American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status Classification (ASA) is shown as median and interquartile range. Patient sex is shown as the number (percent) of males in each group. P-values were calculated with Student’s t-test (normally distributed continuous data), the Mann–Whitney U test (non-normally distributed data), and the Fisher exact test (frequency data).
