Fifteen neurosurgical patients were i.v. injected Midazolam for anaesthesia induction. Intracranial pressure (ICP), mean arterial blood pressure (MAP), cerebral perfusion pressure (CCP), paCo2 and central venous pressure (CVP) were recorded. ICP showed tendency to lower while paC02 significant increased. Although a decrease in MAP (8.15%), CCP remained in the physiologic range. These data indicate that Midazolam represents an alternative for induction of anaesthesia in neurosurgical patients.
