Volatile anesthetic agents have profound and heterogeneous effects on global and local cerebral blood flow (l-CBF) and metabolism. The relationship between l-CBF and local cerebral glucose uptake (l-CMRg) during isoflurane anesthesia is unknown. Because these relationships might influence neuronal homeostasis during periods of cerebral ischemia of different(More)
BACKGROUND The novel, disposable streamlined pharynx airway liner (SLIPA) has recently been introduced into clinical practice. It has no inflatable cuff, because the shape of the SLIPA closely resembles the anatomy of the pharynx. METHODS We compared the SLIPA with the conventional laryngeal mask airway (LMA) regarding handling, safety, sealing of the(More)
Neurophysiologic studies have demonstrated epileptoid activity during high-dose narcotic anesthesia. The authors utilized the 14C-2-deoxyglucose method to evaluate the local cerebral glucose metabolism (l-CMRg) during high-dose fentanyl-induced epileptoid discharges as evaluated by electroencephalography (EEG) in ventilated rats. Fentanyl was administered(More)
