    Studies have shown that taking anesthesia drugs can increase QT interval. We investigated the effect of short-term use of sevoflurane on QT and QTc intervals in the early stages of anesthesia and in children. In this prospective cohort study, 52 patients aged 2-14 years, were enrolled. Children were randomly divided into two groups: Sevoflurane (S) and control (sodium thiopental, P). In the intervention group, anesthesia induction using sevoflurane was continued for 10-15 minutes and the sevoflurane level was adjusted so that the end-expiratory concentration remained constant at 3%. In group P (control group), anesthesia was induced with 5 mg/kg sodium thiopental. ECGs were taken at 0, 5, 10, and 15 minutes after induction of anesthesia and compared between both groups. QT measurement in lead II in the four times showed that the two groups were not significantly different f.. Read More»
