Abstract:The uptake of halothane is known to be more rapid in children than in adults, but comparable clinical data regarding other inhalational anaesthetics are not available. In this study, the rates of uptake of halothane, enflurane, isoflurane and methoxyflurane were compared in children of different ages. Expired (FE') and inspired (FI) vapour concentrations were measured with an infrared analyser, and FE'/FI ratios were used to determine rates of uptake. Uptake rates of halothane, enflurane and methoxyflurane were more rapid in the younger than in the older children, but age had no effect on the uptake of isoflurane which was uniformly rapid in all the children studied.
