Abstract

The effect of halothane on mesenteric intralymphatic pressure was examined in 20 rats. Following administration of 1.5% halothane, lymph pressure decreased from a control value of 7.6 +/- 1.5cmH20 to 3.8 +/- 1.8cmH20. On the other hand, a lower concentration of halothane (1%) did not alter lymph pressure. In conjunction with earlier findings, these data suggest further that lymph propulsion is suppressed during halothane (greater than 1.5%) anesthesia.
