Objective To investigate if isoflurane preconditioning induces ischemic tolerance against neuronal damage produced by middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) in rats Methods Thirty male SD rats weighing 350 400g were randomly divided into three groups: control group (no pretreatment,n=10),isoflurane preconditioning group (ISO group) (inhalation of 2% isoflurane and 98% O 2 1h per day lasting 5d,n=10), oxygen preconditioning group (O 2 group) (inhalation of 98% O 2 1h per day lasting 5d ,n=10… CONTINUE READING
