We studied 60 children undergoing neurosurgical procedures in the sitting position. Routine monitoring included ECG, pulse oximetry, invasive arterial pressure, in particular mean arterial pressure (MAP), and right atrial pressure (RAP). Children were allocated to two groups. In group B lower body positive pressure and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) were used for preventing venous air embolism (VAE). In this group, antishock trousers (MAST suit) were adjusted in supine children. After… CONTINUE READING
