Abstract

The inhalational agents are very important to maintain the depth of anesthesia, provide analgesia and muscle relaxant. Many factors have effect of anesthetic gases, including type in an anesthetic agents and its MAC and other properties and postoperative stays. This study were designed to comparison between isoflurane  and sevoflurane as inhalational agents on the pulse rate during general anesthesia.

This prospective study were carried out at Baghdad Teaching Hospital, Medical City Complex, Baghdad/Iraq from 2nd January 2020 –  20th February 2020.

Thirty (30) patients between 7 - 68 years old were enrolled in this study. Male was 13 and female was 17, in all selected patients, pulse rate was recorded at baseline, at intubation at 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 25 min, 30min, 40 min of the time of operation, extubation, and recovery.

Results showed that the pulse rate at baseline there is not significant different in pulse rate of each gas, at intubation there is significant change in pulse rate, at 5 min ,10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 25 min, 30 min, 40 min, extubation, recovery there is not significant different in pulse rate.
