Due to deterioration of respiration she was intubated and ventilated with oxygen. Blood gas analysis now was PaO z 356 and PaCO z 42 mmHg. As intracarnial lesions still could not be ruled out and in order to evaluate cerebral activity, she was monitored with the Lifescan™ computerized EEG analyzer. EEG power spectra revealed a dominance of activity in the alpha and theta bands with little pathological delta waves (Fig. 40). As benzodiazepines in the EEG usually increase fast activity and with a suspected flunitrazepam overdose in mind, the specific benzodiazepine antagonist flumazenil (AnexateTM) was given in incremental doses.
