The effects of halothane, enflurane, and isoflurane on laryngeal receptors were investigated in 6 anesthetized dogs breathing spontaneously through a tracheostomy. Single unit action potentials were recorded from the peripheral cut end of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) while different concentrations of volatile anesthetics (1.25, 2.5, 5.0%) were administered in the expiratory direction at a constant air-flow (6 l/min) for 1 min through the functionally isolated upper airway. A total of 21… CONTINUE READING
