Terrell (Isoflurane) - Summary



Isoflurane, USP, a nonflammable liquid administered by vaporizing, is a general inhalation anesthetic drug.

Terrell (ISOFLURANE) is indicated for the following:

Isoflurane may be used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. Adequate data have not been developed to establish its application in obstetrical anesthesia.

Published Studies Related to Terrell (Isoflurane)

Effect of a heat and moisture exchanger on heat loss in isoflurane-anesthetized dogs undergoing single-limb orthopedic procedures. [2011.12.15]
Objective-To determine whether a heat and moisture exchange device (HME) prevents a decrease in body temperature in isoflurane-anesthetized dogs undergoing orthopedic procedures...

Protection by remote ischemic preconditioning during coronary artery bypass graft surgery with isoflurane but not propofol - a clinical trial. [2011.11.21]
BACKGROUND: Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) of the myocardium by limb ischemia/reperfusion may mitigate cardiac damage, but its interaction with the anesthetic regimen is unknown. We tested whether RIPC is associated with differential effects depending on background anesthesia. Specifically, we hypothesized that RIPC during isoflurane anesthesia attenuates myocardial injury in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and that effects may be different during propofol anesthesia... CONCLUSION: Thus, RIPC during isoflurane but not during propofol anesthesia decreased myocardial damage in patients undergoing CABG surgery. Accordingly, effects of RIPC evoked by upper limb ischemia/reperfusion depend on background anesthesia, with combined RIPC/isoflurane exerting greater beneficial effects under conditions studied.

Increased lung clearance of isoflurane shortens emergence in obesity: a prospective randomized-controlled trial. [2011.09]
Background: There is a concern that obesity may play a role in prolonging emergence from fat-soluble inhalational anaesthetics. We hypothesized that increased pulmonary clearance of isoflurane will shorten immediate recovery from anaesthesia and post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU) stay in obese patients.

Respiratory resistance during anaesthesia with isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane: a randomized clinical trial. [2011.09]
BACKGROUND: To investigate whether the effects of desflurane on inspiratory resistance are similar to those of isoflurane and sevoflurane during 30 min administration at 1 and 1.5 MAC in patients with healthy lungs... CONCLUSIONS: In healthy adults, neither sevoflurane nor isoflurane produced bronchodilation at 1 and 1.5 MAC. Desflurane did not affect respiratory resistance at 1 MAC, but at 1.5 MAC caused significant increase in both total and airway resistance with return to near baseline values after discontinuation of the agent.

Synergy of isoflurane preconditioning and propofol postconditioning reduces myocardial reperfusion injury in patients. [2011.07]
Either isoflurane preconditioning or high-dose propofol treatment has been shown to attenuate myocardial IRI (ischaemia/reperfusion injury) in patients undergoing CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) surgery. It is unknown whether isoflurane and propofol may synergistically attenuate myocardial injury in patients...

Clinical Trials Related to Terrell (Isoflurane)

Sevoflurane vs. Isoflurane for Low-Flow General Anaesthesia for Abdominal Surgery [Completed]
Two groups of patients are going to have abdominal surgery with low-flow general anaesthesia. Group A (sevoflurane group, experimental group) will use volatile anaesthetic sevoflurane. Group B (isoflurane group, control group) will use volatile anaesthetic isoflurane. It will be observed differences between volatile anaesthetic sevoflurane and volatile anaesthetic isoflurane for providing low-flow general anaesthesia for abdominal surgery. Duration of this randomised controled trial will be approximately 2 months. Estimated sample size will be 82 persons (41 in sevoflurane group and 41 in isoflurane group).

Isoflurane at Subanesthetic Concentrations - 6 [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to conduct experiments to examine subjective and reinforcing effects of nitrous oxide. Mood altering and psychomotor effects will be tested on non-drug abusers and preference procedures will be used to assess reinforcing effects. To test the hypothesis that isoflurane at subanesthetic concentrations does not reduce cold-water immersion pain in healthy volunteers.

Isoflurane During Cardiopulmonary Bypass [Recruiting]
There is no clinical way of assessing the depth of anaesthesia while patients are on the heart-lung machine. A new method of measuring the depth of anaesthesia using brainwaves called the Bispectral index (BIS) has been developed and its use in cardiac surgery is now widespread. However BIS is also altered by patients body temperature. As cooling is common during heart surgery the use of BIS to measure the depth of anaesthesia during heart-lung bypass remains controversial. This study aims to find out what depth of anaesthesia is produced according to BIS during heart lung bypass using a standard anaesthetic technique that utilises the anaesthetic isoflurane.

Effects of Subanesthetic Concentrations of Isoflurane/Nitrous Oxide - 3 [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to conduct experiments to examine subjective and reinforcing effects of nitrous oxide. Mood altering and psychomotor effects will be tested on non-drug abusers and preference procedures will be used to assess reinforcing effects. To evaluate the acute and residual effects of subanesthetic concentrations of isoflurane/nitrous oxide combinations in healthy volunteers.

Effects of Subanesthetic Isoflurane/Sevoflurane in 60% Oxygen on Clinical In-vitro Experimental Sepsis [Recruiting]
Sepsis is a major cause of death in intensive care units. Despite the investigators improved understanding, which has reduced the risk of dying with sepsis, the number of people who die each year continues to increase due to an overall increase in the number of cases. In our previous study, the investigators have showed that 100% oxygen or 0. 5 minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) isoflurane/sevoflurane in 60% oxygen protect mouse macrophage cell line against in-vitro sepsis induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS). In this study, the investigator hypothesized that treatment of 100% oxygen or 0. 5 MAC isoflurane/sevoflurane in 60% oxygen protected against clinical in-vitro models of sepsis induced by LPS or plasma from septic patients.
