BACKGROUND Anesthetic techniques can modulate surgical stress responses. We studied the response of plasma epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), and serum cortisol during lung lobectomy under sevoflurane, propofol and fentanyl anesthesia. METHODS Fifty patients with lung cancer were of ASA physical status 1 or 2 and aged 50-75 yr. Blood samples were drawn before anesthetic induction, 5 min after tracheal extubation, and 24 h as well as 72 h after… CONTINUE READING
