Depends: Upon the patient's general medical condition (or pharmacodynamics, how the body metabolizes the drugs) and the drugs used on the patient (pharmacokinetics, how the drugs affect the body: how long their effects last, the interaction between them and the amount required for the stress of the particular surgery). Remember, "bigger" surgeries require higher dosages, and those "last longer.".

GOOD ANAESTHESIA MEANS RECOVERY WITHIN 5-10 MINUTES AFTER WOUND IS CLOSED AND PATIENT IS READY TO MOVE OUT OF O ROOM THERE ARE MANY WHO KNOWS HOW TO GIVE -TITRATE WELL. MORE DEEP AT LAST STAGE OF SURGERY IS NOT GOOD

There is no such way to predict good titration, or even what that means.
