Sudden death in the presence of overt β-adrenergic receptor activation in guinea pigs immediately following isoflurane anesthesia.


OBSERVATIONS A case series of sudden death is reported in five consecutive guinea pigs following anesthesia with inhalational isoflurane during β-adrenergic receptor stimulation with isoproterenol.
