Inhalant anesthetics may interfere with normal cerebrovascular autoregulation. It was, therefore, hypothesized that intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) in isoflurane-anesthetized horses would be especially sensitive to body and head position because of the potential for large hydrostatic gradients between the brain and heart in this species. Anesthesia was induced and maintained in six clinically healthy, unmedicated geldings with 1.57% isoflurane in O(2… CONTINUE READING
