The variable effect of low-dose volatile anaesthetics on the acute ventilatory response to hypoxia in humans: a quantitative review.

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to review published studies (identified by a Medline-assisted search) on the effect of < or = 0.2 minimal alveolar concentration (MAC) halothane, isoflurane, enflurane and sevoflurane on the acute hypoxic ventilatory response in healthy subjects. Each article was examined for the anaesthetic agent, speed of hypoxic stimulus, background carbon dioxide and subject stimulation (audiovisual or painful). Analysis of variance was used to assess the significance of t...
