The effects of temperature, halothane concentration, and arterial partial pressure of CO2 on corticomotor evoked potentials (CMEPs) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) were studied. Hypothermia causes an increase in CMEP and SSEP latencies. Corticomotor evoked potential amplitude increases with hypothermia to reach a maximum at or below 28 degrees C. As the temperature decreases from 42 degrees C, SSEP amplitude initially increases to reach a maximum between 36 and 34 degrees C and then… CONTINUE READING
