• anesthesia
  • Twenty-one percent O 2 , 5% CO 2 , and 2% isoflurane were delivered from an anesthesia machine to a sealed plastic box in a 37°C incubator containing six-well plates seeded with one million cells in 1.5 ml cell culture media. (asahq.org)
  • In an attempt to combine the advantages of rapid emergence from desflurane anesthesia with the lesser cost of isoflurane, some clinicians use isoflurane to maintain anesthesia, and they substitute desflurane during the last 30 min of anesthesia. (asahq.org)
  • Second, in rats in which a non-rebreathing system was used, we observed an acceleration of early emergence from anesthesia, but only a small advantage over the use of isoflurane alone for late recovery. (asahq.org)
  • clinically
  • To investigate a possible role for isoflurane in AD pathogenesis as well as postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD), we investigated whether a clinically relevant concentration (2%) of isoflurane can induce apoptosis, alter APP processing, and increase Aβ generation in H4 human neuroglioma cells overexpressing human APP. (asahq.org)
  • We substituted desflurane for the last 30 min of a 2-h anesthetic, predicting that this would result in a clinically unimportant improvement in awakening compared with isoflurane alone, and in a slower early and late recovery than if desflurane had been used for the entire anesthetic.

  • anesthetics
  • This results in an earlier emergence than with older anesthetics with higher solubilities, such as isoflurane. (asahq.org)
  • Economic considerations dictate that inhaled anesthetics be delivered by a closed or semiclosed system, systems that would not permit maximal elimination of isoflurane during the "crossover," and, therefore, would delay emergence. (asahq.org)
