The MAC for halothane is 25% lower in pregnant than that in nonpregnant ewes. The reason for this is uncertain, but changes in both steroidal and endogenous opiate have been implicated. This study was undertaken to assess the effect of exogenous progesterone on minimal alveolar concentrations (MAC) of halothane in ovariectomized rabbits. Minimal alveolar(More)
In a previous report, the incidence of tourniquet pain was found to be 25% with bupivacaine and 60% with tetracaine (P less than 0.05) spinal anesthesia. On the other hand, tetracaine is more potent than bupivacaine in abolishing the single-compound action potential in vitro in isolated nerves. These conflicting observations may be reconciled if bupivacaine(More)
