Abstract
To determine the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of isoflurane in korean children, 33 children (preschool age group ; 17, school age group ; 16) were anesthetized with isoflurane in 100% oxygen. The move-no move responses to skin incision were recorded, and MAC was determined using the Litchfield-Wilcoxon method. MAC of isoflurane was determined in two pediatric age groups. MAC was 1.35% in preschool age group (10 month~7,5 yr of age), 1.37% in school age group (8~14 yr of age), 1.36% in all children (10 month~14 yr of age).
Key Words: Minimum alveolar concentration; Isoflurane; Children
