Pupil dilation reflex measured by a pupillometer is known to be a useful parameter for assessing the response to perioperative noxious stimuli. In children, pupillometer can reflect changes after painful stimuli during anaesthesia or guide anaesthesia to reduce opioid consumption. However, to date, there are no data regarding pupil response during inhalation anaesthesia with analgesia by intravenous acetaminophen in children.
