: Tracheal mucociliary flow rates in dogs were measured with a radioactive droplet technique during thiopental anesthesia, and subsequently during enflurane, either, and nitrous oxide-morphine anesthesia on different occasions. Enflurane, at 0.6, 1.2, 1.8 MAC, produced a dose-dependent, reversible depression of mucociliary flow equal to that previously reported for halothane. Nitrous oxide-halothane and nitrous oxide-morphine depressed mucociliary flow to the same extent as halothane at… Expand
