  • Ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury of the heart can be ameliorated by volatile anesthetics (VAs). Application of VAs prior to the ischemic event triggers endogenous cardioprotective program that persists even after anesthetic removal, and it is called anesthetic-induced preconditioning (APC) (1). VAs can also reduce infarct size if applied during the reperfusion period (anesthetic postconditioning), where they can also exert protection by the direct effects on cardiac cells, specifically on… CONTINUE READING
