The purpose of this study was to examine the anaesthetic requirement of intrathecal midazolam in a dose-response fashion in isoflurane-anaesthetized, tracheostomized rats, and to evaluate the apnoeic threshold after each intrathecal midazolam dose. Intrathecal midazolam, 5, 10, 20, and 30 micrograms, was administered to 25 anaesthetized tracheotomized rats.(More)
