Profound Hypotension Induced with Halothane 113


Haemodynamic measurements and estimates of pulmonary gas exchange have been made in 15 patients during varying degrees of deliberate arterial hypotension induced by IPPV with varying concentrations of halothane in oxygen. Used in this way, halothane caused a dose-dependent arterial hypotension, which was directly related to a reduction in stroke volume and… (More)
