COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
EEG electrodes are connected to patients head with clay-like material to the patients that, regardless of the study should recieve a caudal block. After EEG is connected the caudal block is performed. The registration goes on until the surgery is finished or maximun 1 hour after the EEG registration started.

Summary
Brief summary
Since caudal blocks produce a temporary rise in the intracranial pressure and lowers the central perfusion pressure of the brain we aim to verify if that contributes to ischemic signs on the EEG
