The opiate antagonist naloxone counteracts the inhibition of sympathetic nerve activity caused by halothane anesthesia in rats.

Abstract

The study was undertaken to examine if endogenous opioid systems mediate the response of the sympathetic nervous system to halothane anesthesia. Steady state values of renal sympathetic nerve activity (rSNA), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and heart rate (HR) were continuously recorded in the conscious state and at three depths of halothane anesthesia (0.6… (More)
