Cardiac rhythm and left ventricular function of infants at 1 MAC sevoflurane and halothane

Published in Paediatric anaesthesia. 2007, vol. 17, no. 6, p. 540-6
Abstract The implementation of sevoflurane in pediatric anesthesia practice led to a decrease in the incidence of cardiac arrest previously reported with halothane. Nevertheless, the effects of sevoflurane on cardiac rhythm and function have not been systematically investigated in infants. Thus, we compared cardiac rhythm and left ventricular function at 1 MAC sevoflurane and halothane anesthesia and investigated the potential benefit effect of atropine.
