Effects of dose-dependent levels of isoflurane on cerebral blood flow in healthy subjects studied using positron emission tomography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In this study, we tested the hypothesis that escalating drug concentrations of isoflurane are associated with a significant decline in cerebral blood flow (CBF) in regions sub-serving conscious brain activity, including specifically the thalamus. METHODS Nine human volunteers received three escalating drug concentrations: 0.2, 0.4 and 1.0 MAC… (More)
