They began lowering his Propofol to 40 mcg/kg/min (from 50) to begin the weaning process. Perry was exhibiting more frequent head turns, twitching from all extremities, his eyes were partially open and he continued to have mouth/jaw movements. Based on this, the neurology team now recommends to increase his dosage of Vimpat (anti-seizure medication) and keep the Propofol at 40 mcg/kg/min. They will continue with video EEG & remote observation and want to give at least another 12 hrs before next plan is established based upon findings with the above plan.
Will update when anything additional information is available.
