We studied 16 healthy ASA physical status I patients (aged 13-71 yr for sevoflurane and 22-74 yr for isoflurane) to determine maximum blood concentrations on awakening (MBCawake) from sevoflurane and isoflurane anaesthesia, and determined if age and duration of anaesthesia significantly influenced MBCawake. After operation, the end-tidal concentration of anaesthetics was decreased gradually. During recovery from anaesthesia, patients were asked repeatedly to open their eyes. We obtained blood… CONTINUE READING
