The authors studied 64 unpremedicated, healthy surgical patients, aged 42 +/- 14 yr, to determine the effects of atracurium, vecuronium, and pancuronium on the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of halothane. Anesthesia was induced using halothane/nitrous oxide/oxygen via a mask without the administration of other drugs. Nitrous oxide was discontinued, the trachea was intubated without prior administration of neuromuscular blocking drugs, and anesthesia was maintained with halothane in oxygen… CONTINUE READING
