Abstract

This chapter describes the circulatory effects of newer inhalation anesthetics. Some excellent reviews have appeared on the subject, the earliest being the classic review by Price (1960). A collection of papers presented at a National Academy of Sciences Symposium (Price and Cohen, 1964), discusses basic circulatory physiology as a preliminary to the effects of anesthetic agents. A more recent monograph by Price (1967) is useful to those seeking to understand, as well as to know, the circulatory effects of anesthetics. Articles by Black (1965), Tomlin (1965), and Dundee (1966) are also noteworthy. Etsten and Shimosato (1964) have described their extensive work on halothane, methoxyflurane, and other agents. Theirs was probably the first review on anesthesia and the “new” physiology of myocardial mechanics. Finally, Goldberg’S [1968 (2)] thorough account of the effects of halothane on the cardiovascular system should be read by all.
