Enflurane blood-gas solubility: influence of weight and hemoglobin.

The blood-gas partition coefficient of enflurane was measured in nine nonobese and eight morbidity obese patients and correlated with weight, body mass index, and blood hemoglobin. The enflurane blood-gas partition coefficient was lower in the obese patients than in nonobese patients (mean +/- SEM: 2.03 +/- 0.02 versus 1.76 +/- 0.03, respectively, p less… CONTINUE READING
