Remifentanil is commonly used during anesthesia in pediatric electrophysiologic studies (EPS). The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of remifentanil on the cardiac electrophysiologic properties of children undergoing ablation of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). A prospective study was performed in patients undergoing EPS before ablation of SVT. Each patient received two different anesthetic protocols: protocol 1 = propofol (200 mcg/kg/min) and protocol 2 = propofol (120 mcg… CONTINUE READING
