Psychological studies of human performance as affected by traces of enflurane and nitrous oxide.
Discussion The principal findings of this study were that enflurane affected performance on these tests in a manner qualitatively similar to, though quantitatively different from, halothane. Since the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC), an index of anesthetic potency, is about twice as high for enflurane as for halothane, comparison of the same trace amounts of each […]
The Abortive Lives of Modern Inhalation Anesthetics.
READERS of this periodical were probably intrigued when, in 1971, almost an entire issue was devoted to studies in volunteers of a new anesthetic, isoflurane (Forane), a novel and useful editorial departure. Since then, a series of reports in the Journal has cast further light on some of the more arcane properties of this heavily […]
Neurotoxicity in operating room personnel working with gaseous and nongaseous anesthesia.
Excerpt Introduction According to experimental and field studies, exposure to more than 500 ppm of nitrous oxide(N 2O) and more than 15 ppm of haJothane and enflurane can cause performance impairment in neurobehavioral exammations (Bruce and Bach 1975, 1976; Smith and Shirley 1978; Allison et al. 1979; Edling 1980; Mahoney et al. 1988. Control of […]
Teratogenicity caused by halothane, enflurane, and sevoflurane, and changes depending on O2 concentration.
Introduction The history of anesthesia is a relatively recent one; if one begins with the analgesia dentist, Horace Wells, who discovered the used nitrous oxide during a dental extraction in the early 1800s. The first public showing of anesthesia occurred in October 1846, when ether was used to prevent pain during surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. […]
Comparison of maintenance and recovery characteristics of sevoflurane-nitrous oxide and enflurane-nitrous oxide anaesthesia.
