Effect of halothane anesthesia on glucose utilization and production in adolescents.

Abstract

BACKGROUND It should be possible to avoid variations in plasma glucose concentration during anesthesia by adjusting glucose infusion rate to whole-body glucose uptake. To study this hypothesis, we measured glucose utilization and production, before and during halothane anesthesia. METHODS After an overnight fast, six adolescents between 12 and 17 yr of… (More)
