In anesthetized animals maintained with isoflurane using 100% oxygen as a carrier gas, Albunex (Molecular Biosystems, Inc., San Diego, Calif.) produced no ultrasound contrast in the left ventricle after intravenous administration. The current study tested the hypothesis that the inhalation of gas mixtures with increased concentrations of oxygen decreased the quality and duration of Albunex-induced contrast. Albunex (0.22 mL/kg) was injected intravenously into anesthetized dogs (n = 9) breathing… CONTINUE READING
