The effect of increasing end-tidal enflurane concentration on the auditory evoked response was studied in six patients. After a standard induction, anesthesia was maintained with 70% nitrous oxide in oxygen and the end-tidal enflurane concentration was increased gradually from 0 to 1% over a period of 30 min. The averaged auditory evoked response was(More)
In spinally transected, decerebrated rabbits, the reflex evoked in the ankle extensor gastrocnemius medialis by stimulation of the ipsilateral sural nerve was depressed for periods of 12-45 min following tetanic stimulation of the high-threshold afferents of the ipsilateral tibial, common peroneal, gastrocnemius medialis and sural nerves. It was unaffected(More)
The effects of intravenous morphine, (-)-naloxone and (+)-naloxone have been studied on three ipsilateral cutaneo-muscular reflexes in spinal rabbits. Morphine, 3 mg/kg caused a slow-onset depression of all three reflexes. This effect was naloxone reversible. The ipsilateral extensor reflexes, sural to gastrocnemius medialis and saphenous to vastus(More)
It has previously been reported that prior administration of naloxone may prevent the decrement in performance produced by alcohol. To be clinical value, however, naloxone must be shown to reverse rather than prevent this decrement. This study examined the effect of naloxone given after consumption of alcohol. A double blind balanced crossover protocol was(More)
