Isoflurane suppresses central cardiac parasympathetic activity in rats: a pilot study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Intraoperative circulatory stability is a function of both cardiac parasympathetic activity and cardiac and vascular sympathetic activity; however, cardiac parasympathetic activity is rarely considered. This experiment addresses the effect of isoflurane on central cardiac parasympathetic control, i.e., cardiac vagal motoneurons (CVM), which are… (More)
