BACKGROUND The current study evaluates the hemodynamic and respiratory effects of dexmedetomidine (DEX) when administered to children anesthetized with sevoflurane (SEVO) or desflurane (DES). METHODS After tracheal intubation and spontaneous ventilation, DEX (0.5 microg x kg(-1)) was administered over 5 min. Heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (sBP), diastolic blood pressure (dBP), and endtidal carbon dioxide (P(E)CO(2)) were monitored and recorded prior to DEX (time 0) and again at 5… CONTINUE READING
