Abstract

Assessment of nociception under anaesthesia is challenging. Heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV) are related to functioning of the autonomous nervous system and have been reported to provide information about the level of anaesthesia. We evaluated whether HRV may be used as an index for analgesia by studying responses to skin incision under sevoflurane anaesthesia. We found that heart rate and HRV change differently for sub- and supramaximal nociception. This suggests that HRV may provide valuable information about level of analgesia during anaesthesia.
