Cerebrovascular reactivity to hypercapnia during sevoflurane or desflurane anesthesia in rats.

Summary of "Cerebrovascular reactivity to hypercapnia during sevoflurane or desflurane anesthesia in rats."

Hypercapnia dilates cerebral vessels and increases cerebral blood flow, resulting in increases in intracranial pressure. Sevoflurane is reported to preserve cerebrovascular carbon dioxide reactivity. However, the contribution of inhaled anesthetics to vasodilatory responses to hypercapnia have not been clarified. Moreover, the cerebrovascular response to desflurane under hypercapnia has not been reported. We examined the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane on vasodilatory responses to hypercapnia in rats.

Three minutes propofol after sevoflurane anesthesia to prevent emergence agitation in genito-urinary pediatric surgeries: a randomized controlled trial.

emergence agitation (ED) is a common problem after sevoflurane anesthesia in pediatrics. Confusing results are there when propofol is administered as a 1 mg/kg bolus at the end of sevoflurane anesthes...

Erythropoietin Reduces Neurodegeneration and Long-Term Memory Deficits Following Sevoflurane Exposure in Neonatal Rats.

Exposure to general anesthetics induces neural apoptosis and degeneration in the immature neonatal brain. Erythropoietin (EPO) has been shown to protect neonatal animals against hypoxic-ischemic injur...

Effects of intraoperative propofol-based total intravenous anesthesia on postoperative pain in spine surgery: Comparison with desflurane anesthesia - a randomised trial.

As reported, patients experience less postoperative pain after propofol-based total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA). In the present study, we investigated the postoperative analgesic effects between pro...

The effect of water immersion and acute hypercapnia on ventilatory sensitivity and cerebrovascular reactivity.

The partial pressure of end tidal carbon dioxide (PETCO ), ventilatory sensitivity to CO , and cerebral perfusion are augmented during thermoneutral head out water immersion (HOWI). We tested the hypo...

Protective effects of TRPV1 inhibition against sevoflurane-induced cell death.

Sevoflurane is a widely used inhalational anesthetic that can induce developmental neurotoxicity, leading to cognitive dysfunction. In this study, we assessed the role of transient receptor potential ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An outbred strain of rats developed in 1915 by crossing several Wistar Institute white females with a wild gray male. Inbred strains have been derived from this original outbred strain, including Long-Evans cinnamon rats (RATS, INBRED LEC) and Otsuka-Long-Evans-Tokushima Fatty rats (RATS, INBRED OLETF), which are models for Wilson's disease and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, respectively.

A calcium channel blockader with preferential cerebrovascular activity. It has marked cerebrovascular dilating effects and lowers blood pressure.

Mutant strains of rats that produce little or no hair. Several different homozygous recessive mutations can cause hairlessness in rats including rnu/rnu (Rowett nude), fz/fz (fuzzy), shn/shn (shorn), and nznu/nznu (New Zealand nude). Note that while NUDE RATS are often hairless, they are most characteristically athymic.

A trypanosome found in the blood of adult rats and transmitted by the rat flea. It is generally non-pathogenic in adult rats but can cause lethal infection in suckling rats.

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
