Studies investigating the influence of muscle relaxants on the bispectral index have yielded contradictory results. In our prospective, randomized, double-blind experiments, patients received a fixed target concentration of remifentanil along with a target-controlled infusion of propofol, titrated until loss of consciousness. Two minutes after loss of consciousness, the study group received a bolus injection of atracurium, whereas the control group received a placebo. The following variables… CONTINUE READING
