Halothane anesthesia causes active flow-independent pulmonary vasoconstriction.

Abstract

We utilized multipoint pulmonary vascular pressure-flow (P/Q) plots to investigate the effects of halothane anesthesia on the pulmonary circulation. Our first objective was to assess the extent to which the P/Q relationship measured in conscious dogs is altered during halothane anesthesia. P/Q plots were constructed by stepwise constriction of the thoracic… (More)
