Median nerve somatosensory evoked responses (MnSSERs) were recorded in nine neurologically normal adult cardiac patients before and during the administration of high-dose fentanyl. MnSSERs were recorded prior to induction and at t = 20 min and t = 45 min postinduction. Fentanyl was administered as a slow bolus (53.2 +/- 9.1 micrograms X kg-1), followed by a continuous infusion at 10-20 micrograms X kg-1 X hr-1 (total dose 63.6 +/- 10.1 micrograms X kg-1). All MnSSER waveform components remained… CONTINUE READING
