Controversy exists as to whether the halogenated inhalation (IH) anesthetics impair arterial oxygenation during one-lung ventilation (1-LV). Accordingly, the authors have answered this question in 12 consenting patients who required 1-LV to facilitate the performance of thoracic surgery, by comparing arterial oxygenation during a prolonged period of IH anesthesia with arterial oxygenation during a prolonged period of intravenous (IV) anesthesia during stable 1-LV conditions. The patients were… CONTINUE READING
