Whether or not intravenous glucose administration during pediatric anesthesia is necessary remains a controversial issue. The current study was designed to investigate the effect of glucose infusion on concentrations of plasma glucose, nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), triglycerides, ketone bodies, and insulin and to determine whether the use of solutions containing less than 5% glucose would maintain physiologic plasma glucose concentrations during tympanoplasty lasting about 6 h.
