Possible Interaction: Epinephrine and Isoflurane



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Compared with fentanyl/fluanisone/midazolam anesthesia, isoflurane resulted in a shorter time to return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), less use of epinephrine , increased coronary perfusion pressure during cardiopulmonary resusitation, higher mean arterial pressure post-ROSC, increased plasma levels of endothelin-1, and decreased levels of epinephrine.

Therefore, IM epinephrine administered at the end of general anesthesia can significantly hasten anesthetic recovery from isoflurane in alligators.

BACKGROUND Halothane more so than isoflurane potentiates an alpha1-adrenoceptor (alpha1-AR)-mediated action of epinephrine that abnormally slows conduction in Purkinje fibers and may facilitate reentrant arrhythmias.

Isoflurane administered before ischemia increased the arrhythmogenic dose of epinephrine (ADE), but had no effect on ADE when administered after reperfusion.

Without methylatropine, isoflurane and enflurane, but not halothane, further enhanced the baroreflex-mediated negative chronotropic effects of epinephrine , whereas with methylatropine, each anesthetic reduced the direct positive chronotropic effects of epinephrine.

CONCLUSIONS It was concluded that isoflurane with E or NE acts synergistically to increase dysrhythmic potential in the arterial tissue.
Dysrhythmogenic potential of E and NE tended to be greater after earlier exposure to isoflurane.
Every combination of isoflurane with E or NE produced a significant increase in the incidence of pacemaker shifts and normalized shift scores.
