Anesthesia with abdominal surgery leads to intense REM sleep during the first postoperative week.
Characteristics of nocturnal sleep were investigated in six patients after anesthesia and cholecystectomy and in another six after anesthesia and gastroplasty. All night polysomnographic recordingsExpand

Site of Selective Action of Halothane on the Peripheral Chemoreflex Pathway in Humans
Halothane in humans depresses the ventilatory response to hypoxemia in a manner that suggests a selective action on one or more components of the peripheral chemoreflex arc. To test the hypothesisExpand

Ventilatory Responses to Hypoxia and Hypercapnia during Halothane Sedation and Anesthesia in Man
To elucidate the effects of halothane on chemical regulation of ventilation in man, the authors studied the ventilatory responses to isocapnic hypoxia and hyperoxic hypercapnia in 33 human subjectsExpand

Hypoxic ventilatory responses during thiopentone sedation and anaesthesia in man
SummaryWe have assessed the impact of thiopentone on the hypoxic ventilatory reflex, and on the responses to carbon dioxide and doxapram. Thiopentone sedation did not detectably alter any of theseExpand

Ventilation and chemoreflexes during enflurane sedation and anaesthesia in man.
Enflurane sedation and anaesthesia in healthy fit subjects reduced ventilation and the response to carbon dioxide, hypoxaemia and a low dose of doxapram, all in a dose-related fashion. Comparing theExpand
