Single-flash visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were recorded in 32 preterm infants (mean gestational age: 29 weeks) during extreme physiologic conditions within the first day of life. The VEP configuration was normal in all patients at the onset of the investigation. Hypoxic episodes (PaO2 less than 3 kPa) caused rapid and consistent attenuation of the VEP mostly with an instantaneous recovery after normalization of PaO2. In contrast, VEP amplitude and latency were unaffected during episodes with… CONTINUE READING
