BACKGROUND Few electroencephalography (EEG) data are available in anaesthetized infants. This study aimed to identify EEG characteristics that might warn of awakening (AW) from sevoflurane anaesthesia in infants. METHODS Twenty intubated infants [aged 39-77 weeks post-menstrual age (PMA)] were studied after surgery during sevoflurane wash-out. EEG was recorded at the end of surgery and throughout emergence. Changes in EEG time and frequency domains were described. RESULTS At the end of… CONTINUE READING
