OBJECTIVE To study the effects of a high remifentanil bolus dose on pig's electroencephalographic indices and on brain regional and global oxygenation. STUDY DESIGN Prospective experimental study. ANIMALS Twelve healthy Large-White male pigs, age 3 months and weight 26.2 ± 3.6 kg. METHODS Anaesthesia was induced with intravenous propofol 4 mg kg⁻¹, then maintained with constant rate infusions of propofol (15 mg kg⁻¹ hour⁻¹) and remifentanil (0.3 μg kg⁻¹ minute⁻¹).
