Comparison of MAC and the rate of rise of alveolar concentration of sevoflurane with halothane and isoflurane in the dog.

Abstract

The anesthetic requirements for sevoflurane, isoflurane, and halothane were determined in mongrel dogs. The MACs (minimum alveolar concentration) of sevoflurane, isoflurane, and halothane were 2.36 +/- 0.46% (n = 18), 1.39 +/- 0.25% (n = 10), and 0.89 +/- 0.20% (n = 12), respectively (mean +/- SD). In agreement with sevoflurane's low blood/gas partition… (More)
