Ca Release from Skeletal Muscle SR
The effects of volatile anesthetics on the physiology of skeletal muscle have been extensively studied. However, conflicting results have been presented, probably due to different experimental models and different concentrations of the drugs used. Often these studies address volatile anesthetic effects at concentrations well above those required for clinical anesthesia.
