Abstract

The use of sevoflurane in neonates for CVC is feasible and achieve the goals of procedural sedation. The pharmacokinetic of sevoflurane enabled rapid adjustment of the depth of sedation. Sevoflurane appears to be a new agent at the disposal of neonatologists. Its use does not come without risks, especially for smaller preterms, which the treating clinician must anticipate.
