The impact of age on bispectral index values and EEG bispectrum during anaesthesia with desflurane and halothane in children


, : The impact of age on bispectral index values and EEG bispectrum during anaesthesia with desflurane and halothane in children. British Journal of Anaesthesia 96(4): 480-485

Background. The relationship between end-tidal sevoflurane concentration, bispectral index (BIS) and the EEG bispectrum in children appears to be age dependent. The aim of this study was to quantify the BIS values at 1 MAC (minimum alveolar concentration) for desflurane and halothane, and explore the relationship with age for these anaesthetic agents in children.Methods. ECG, EEG and BIS were recorded continuously in 90 children aged 6-170 months requiring anaesthesia for elective surgery.
