In 43 patients the time-dependent behaviour of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) before and during induction of anesthesia with 0.3 mg/kg etomidate was studied. The SSEP components could be reliably recorded in one-minute intervals and the modulations of SSEP (early and middle latencies) following bolus injection with its pharmacokinetically non-stationary states could be quantified. The central conduction time (CCT) between the cervical N13- and the cortical N20-component was less… CONTINUE READING
