PURPOSE To determine the effect of an anaesthetic with antioxidant potential, propofol, on red blood cell (RBC) antioxidant enzyme activities and RBC susceptibility to peroxidative challenge. METHODS Propofol was administered by intravenous bolus (2.5 mg.kg-1) and continuous infusion (36 and 72 ml.hr-1 in nine swine; 216 ml.hr-1 in two swine), to achieve… CONTINUE READING
