The effects of halothane, enflurane, and isoflurane were studied at 0.5, 0.75, and 1 MAC in 60% N2O on subcortical sensory evoked potentials recorded at the popliteal fossa (PF), the spine (L-3, C-6) and on cortical potentials recorded at the scalp (SC) following bilateral posterior tibial nerve stimulations at the ankle in 28 patients undergoing scoliosis surgery. Latencies and amplitudes of the resulting potentials at each level were compared with postinduction control values. With increasing… CONTINUE READING
