Almitrine fails to improve oxygenation during one-lung ventilation with sevoflurane anesthesia.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Almitrine enhances hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) and can improve hypoxemia related to one-lung ventilation (OLV). Studies using almitrine have been conducted without inhaled anesthetics because they could inhibit HPV, counteracting the effect of almitrine. This hypothesis, however, has not been confirmed. This study's aim was to… (More)
