Abstract
BACKGROUND: During general anaesthesia, the most prominent change in heart rate variability (HRV) is a decrease in the magnitude of heart rate (HR) oscillation in the high- and low-frequency ranges. In children receiving sevoflurane or desflurane, we observed a significant increase in HR non-stationarity, that is, a significant change of mean HR over time. The aim of our study was to describe this increased non-stationarity and compare it with the decrease in the magnitude of HR oscillation. METHODS: Sixty children received sevoflurane (n=30) or desflurane anaesthesia (n=30). The magnitude of HR oscillation and non-stationarity during pre-anaesthesia and anaesthesia were measured by spectral and Hurst analyses using structure function, respectively. RESULTS: Low- and high-frequency powers decreased significantly and the very-short-term (2
