A crossover study design was used to investigate the dose-related effects of sevoflurane at end-tidal concentrations of 2.2 to 4.4 per cent on the respiratory rate, blood gases, heart rate, arterial blood pressure and ocular signs of chickens during spontaneous and controlled ventilation. The mean (sd) carbon dioxide partial pressure (PaCO2) increased as the concentration of sevoflurane increased, and was 86 (29) mmHg at an end-tidal concentration of 4.4 per cent during spontaneous ventilation… CONTINUE READING
