Isocapnic hyperventilation shortens washout time for sevoflurane - an experimental in vivo study.


BACKGROUND Isocapnic hyperventilation (IHV) is a method that fastens weaning from inhalation anaesthesia by increasing airway concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) during hyperventilation (HV). In an animal model, we evaluated a technique of adding CO2 directly to the breathing circuit of a standard anaesthesia apparatus. METHODS Eight anaesthetised pigs… (More)
