The cerebrovascular response to CO2 has been reported to be preserved during propofol anesthesia, but no comparison with awake control values has been made, and the additional influence of N2O has not been investigated. Using the noninvasive technique of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography, this study investigated the cerebrovascular response to varying levels of PaCO2 while awake and during anesthesia with propofol and propofol/N2O. Seven adults without systemic diseases undergoing… CONTINUE READING
