Abstract

The authors measured resting ventilation, the ventilatory response to added CO2, the VD/VT ratio, the rate of carbon dioxide output, and arterial PCO2 in four healthy volunteers, awake and anesthetized with, in order (I) enflurane 0.4 MAC with nitrous oxide 70 per cent, (II) enflurane 1.1 MAC with nitrous oxide 70 per cent, and (III) enflurane 1.1 MAC alone… (More)
