Tracheal mucociliary flow rates in dogs were measured with a radioactive droplet technique during thiopental anesthesia, and subsequently during halothane anesthesia. Body temperature and inspired gas temperature and humidity were held constant. Ventilation was controlled with 25 per cent oxygen in nitrogen to produce PaCo2 30 torr Mucociliary flow rate remained constant when halothane concentration was held constant at 1.2 MAC halothane. Mucociliary flow rates at 0.6 MAC halothane were… Expand
