The pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to hypoxia during enflurane anesthesia.


Previous investigations have shown that diethyl ether, halothane and methoxyflurane inhibit the vasoconstrictor response to hypoxia in isolated rat lungs. A damping effect of diethyl ether and halothane has been observed in the human lung as well. In the intact dog lung, however, other workers have recently denied any effect of halothane and enflurane on… (More)
