One hundred and fifteen unpremedicated children, induced with thiamylal, a short-acting thiobarbiturate, administered rectally (25 mg.kg-1 body wt) or intravenously (6 mg.kg-1) had arterial pH of 7.36 +/- 0.03 and PaCO2 of 40 +/- 4 mmHg. In 22 children over two years of age, the use of fentanyl (1.2 +/- 0.7 microgram.kg-1) in addition to the thiamylal did not change blood gas data compared to those children over two years receiving only barbiturates (pH 7.36 vs 7.36, PaCO2 41 vs 40 mmHg… CONTINUE READING
