Somatosensory evoked responses after median nerve stimulation were recorded in 21 patients during hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass. During hypothermia a significant linear correlation (P less than 0.001) was found between evoked potential latency and temperature. Correlation was best for tympanic membrane temperature during cooling and for perfusate(More)
