A lower solubility recommends the use of desflurane more than isoflurane, halothane, and enflurane under low-flow conditions.

STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine whether the lower solubility of desflurane, over that of isoflurane, enflurane, and halothane, favors its use in low-flow anesthesia. DESIGN Prospective clinical study. SETTING Technical University of Munich. PATIENTS 40 elderly (> or = 65 yrs), ASA physical status II and III surgical patients. INTERVENTIONS All patients… (More)
