An algorithm that might be used to produce a display of end-tidal concentrations of inhaled anesthetics, including provision of an estimate of the effect of nitrous oxide, is provided.

It is concluded that lecithin is probably more representative of the site of action of these anesthetics than the other solvents.
Nephrotoxicity of Sevoflurane Versus Desflurane Anesthesia in Volunteers
Sevoflurane was associated with transient injury to: 1) the glomerulus, as revealed by postanesthetic albuminuria; 2) the proximal tubule, as shown by post-anesthetic glucosuria and increased urinary alpha-GST; and 3) the distal tubules, as Revealed by post anesthetic increased urinary pi-G ST.

Isoflurane has the largest circulatory margin of safety of all potent halogenated agents; it produces the least myocardial depression at a given multiple of MAC.
Determination of Anesthetic Requirement in Rats
Data demonstrate that previous studies in which the anesthetic requirement for halothane was determined using inspired gas samples are inaccurate and that the use of inspired concentration for this purpose in rats should be limited to inhalation anesthetics with low blood–gas partition coefficients and with minimal effects on ventilation.
Narcotic Properties of Carbon Dioxide in the Dog
The mechanism of CO2 narcosis correlated well with the pH changes in the brain as measured in the cisternal CSF, and appeared to be independent of arterial pH, PaCO2 and cerebrospinal fluid PCO2.
Glycine and γ-aminobutyric acid(A) receptor function is enhanced by inhaled drugs of abuse
The data suggest that inhaled drugs of abuse affect ligand-gated ion channels, and that the molecular sites of action of these compounds may overlap with those of ethanol and the volatile anesthetics.
