Abstract

The effects of midazolam used with low concentration inhaled anaesthetics on the bispectral index (BIS) was investigated after fetal expulsion during caesarean section. Forty-five patients undergoing caesarean section received either normal saline (control, n = 15), or an intravenous bolus of 0.03 mg/kg (n = 15) or 0.05 mg/kg (n = 15) midazolam. Changes in BIS and maternal haemodynamics were monitored before induction, on intubation, at uterine incision, on delivery, at 3, 5 and 10 min after fetal expulsion, at subcutaneous tissue closure, at skin closure, on eye opening and at extubation. BIS values in the group that received 0.05 mg/kg midazolam were significantly lower than in the other two groups at 3, 5 and 10 min after fetal expulsion, and at subcutaneous tissue closure and skin closure. Values of BIS < 60 could only be maintained with 0.05 mg/kg midazolam and there was no delay in maternal emergence or recovery.
