 Effect of inhalation anesthetics on the myocardial catecholamines and its response to norepinephrine 
Issue Date
[영문] The growing frequency of cardiac arrest during anesthesia and surgery has been the subject of considerable discussion in recent years. In 1954, the study of Beecher and Todd was very illustrative. In their analysis of 599,548 Anesthetics, they calculated that one death in 420 operations resulted from surgical errors, whereas death due primarily to the anesthesia was estimated at one per 2,680 anesthetics, and the anesthetic technique was an important contributory causes of death in one per 1,560 cases. It has been well known that the poor risk patients including the geriatric, pediatric and congenital or acquired heart anomality groups contributed greatly to the surgical fatalities. Because of the pharmacological toxicity of the general inhalation anesthetics, chloroform with its strong cardiotoxicity was limited to use in local clinics, and trichlorethylene with the action of partial metabolism and accumulation in the body was limited to less than 2 hours of use. Halothane also with possible hepatotoxicity was considered contraindicated for use clinically on jaundice patients. Although ether has various side actions, it became popularized in many clinics because of the large safety margin. Sadove and Natof (1958), and Engel and Secher (1959) pointed out several precipitating factors in cardiac arrest from anesthetic techniques: hypoxia, hypercarbia, overdose of anesthetic agents, hemorrhage, hypotension, reflex activity and hypothermia. Many causative factors have been reported by the experimental or clinical study of cardiac arrest. If such a dangerous complication occured, it was very difficult to treat. Recently various special operating room monitorings were developed and it should reduce the mortality, if the resuscitation has not been delayed. However, it is still uncerntain how to treat it most effectively or what is the mechanism of the cardiac arrest. During recent years, important factors of cardiac arrhythmias and arrest under general inhalation anesthetics have been demonstrated to be related to increasing sensitivity of the sympathetic nervous system, by the studies of Price et al. (1959), Hamelberg et al. (1960), and Li and Etsten (1960). On the other hand, cardiac arrhythmias and arrest during anesthesia were much improved with beta-adrenergic receptor blockade, and this has been correlated with the effect of the myocardial catecholamines by the study of Payne (1963), and Johnstone (1964a). Furthermore, the relationship between the ventricular fibrillation under hypothermia and the myocardial catecholamines was demonstrated by the study of Lee (1963), in our department. The sympathetic nervous system has long been known to be a factor in the production of cardiac arrest, especially, when cardiac muscle has been previously sensitized by the general inhalation anesthetics. The present study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between cardiac sensitivity to norepinephrine and the myocardial catecholamine content, during general inhalation anesthesia. Methods Rabbits weighing 2.0kg were fixed on the table in supine position. Endotracheal tubes were inserted following tracheostomy. Inhalation anesthetic agents with oxygen were administered by a nonrebreating system, with Wright-Belton or Stephen-Slater valves connected with a Heidbrink anesthesia machine. Deep anesthesia (stage Ⅲ, plane 2 or 3) was maintained for two hours. After two hours of anesthesia, the chest was opened and the heart was imediately removed. The atria isolated from the ventricles, were suspended in the muscle chamber containing 100 ml. of Tyrode's solution maintained at constant temperature of 38℃, with full oxygenation. Norepinephrine was added to the chamber and the changes of atrial beat and contractile ampulitute were expressed as per cent. The catecholamine contents of the cardiac muscle were determined by the Amico-Bowman Spectrophotofluorometric procedure described by Shore and Olin (1958). Results and Conclusions 1. The respiration, pulse and blood pressure changes were observed during tow hours of anesthesia with ether, trichlorethylene, chloroform and halothane in the rabbit, and the cardiac sensitivities to norepinephrine and myocardial catecholamine contents were determined. 2. With ether inhalation (10%), it took thirty minutes to reach deep anesthesia. During the initial thirty minutes, the respiratory rate was rapid and irregular, but under deep anestesia, respiration became stabilized although the rate remained rapid throughout. the pulse rate was rapid and the blood pressure was continuously decreased by about 60% compared with normal controls at the end of anesthesia. The rate in response to norepinephrine in the isolated atria after two hours of anesthesia with ether was not notably altered in comparison with those of normal controls, whereas contractile ampulitude was increased slightly. On the other hand, the myocardial catecholamine contents were decreased moderately from the normal controls. 3. Inhalation of trichlorethylene (0.5-1.0%) promptly induced deep and calm anesthesia without association of irregularity or increased rate of respiration. The pulse rate and blood pressure were gradually decreased. Especially blood pressure was decreased by about 40% below normal controls. The isolated atrial rate was moderately decreased but the atrial response to norepinephrine was moderately increased, i.e. slightly increased in atrial rate and ampulitude. Nevertheless, the myocardial catecholamine contents were decreased slightly below normal controls. 4. Inhalation of chloroform (0.5-1.0%) took forty minutes to produce deep anesthesia. Until then, respiration was rapid and irregular, but when deep anesthesia had been established, the respiration became calm and regular. The pulse rate was rapid and the blood pressure was slightly decreased by about 20% of the normal controls. The rate of the isolated atria after chloroform anesthesia was reduced moderately. However the rate response to norepinephrine was slightly increase, while ampulitude response increased more than five times in low concentration over that of normal. the myocardial catecholamine contents were decreased by one and a half of the normal controls. 5. Inhalation of halothane (1.0-2.0%) gave a similar induction course to chloroform except a somewhat shorter time was required to reach deep anesthesia, and the respiratory rate was slightly depressed until the end of anesthesia. the pulse rate was slow with depression, and the blood pressure moderately decreased by about 30% of the normal controls. The isolated atrial beat was significantly decreased compared to other inhalation anesthetics, but the rate with norepinephrine was increased one and a half times, and furthermore ampulitude response increased significantly. The myocardial catecholamine contents were decreased by one and a half of the normal controls. In summary, the data obtained from present experiments demonstrated that among several inhalation anesthetics, ether was the most irritable, resulting in marked irregularity of respiratory movement, and halothane depressed respiratory rate more than the others. The pulse rate and blood pressure were decreased markedly in ether and the halothane anesthesia. The rate of isolated atria was not greatly altered after anesthesia with ether or trichlorethylene, while it was reduced in the isolated atria after chloroform or halothane inhalation. the response of isolated atria to exogenous norepinephrine was most prominent in the atria of halothane anesthetized rabbits. Myocardial catecholamine contents were reduced uniformly after anesthesia with each anesthetic and most significantly with the halothane inhalation. From the above results, it may be concluded that the increasing cardiac activity with general inhalation anesthetics is closely related to the quantitative changes of the endogenous myocardial catecholamine contents.
