32%) was within the range of the minimum alveolar concentration reported in mammals.
General anaesthesia was induced with inhalation of sevoflurane 8% in a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide (30:70%) and maintained with 1 minimum alveolar concentration of sevoflurane and an inspiratory oxygen fraction of 0.
After a period of time in which the partial pressure of sevoflurane in the brain would have equilibrated with the alveolar partial pressure (6,7), the patient showed clinical signs of adequate anaesthesia and had an end-tidal sevoflurane concentration of more than 1 minimum alveolar concentration, but the entropy monitor still indicated an awake state.
Opioid agents significantly reduce the minimum alveolar concentration of potent inhaled anaesthetics required to facilitate intubation and improve overall intubating conditions during sevoflurane anaesthesia (5,6).
Several studies have shown a decreased maternal minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) for inhalational agents during pregnancy (1-3).
Estimates of effect-site levels should be similar to minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) values, which are determined after allowing time for equilibrium.
