    : Background The surgical stress index (SSI), derived from a combination of heart rate (HR) and photoplethysmographic amplitude (PPGA) time series, is a novel method for continuous monitoring of intraoperative stress and has been validated in adults. The applicability of SSI and its constituents...

    Background: The oculocardiac reflex (OCR) can be elicited during manipulation of the orbital structures in the strabismus correction surgery. A sinus bradycardia is the most common manifestation of OCR; and cardiac dysrhythmia and asystole may also occur. Various efforts to reduce OCR have been...

    Background It remains controversial whether the anaesthetic depth as assessed by bispectral index (BIS) influences the oculocardiac reflex (OCR) during strabismus surgery. We investigated whether BIS-guided sevoflurane titration may help to optimize the anaesthetic depth for inhibition of the...
