Effects of xenon anesthesia on hemodynamics: what do we know until 2015?


Full Text:


Xenon is known as an anesthetic in many ways closer to the ideal. In recent years, despite a number of objective reasons limiting its widespread use, the search continues for understanding how xenon influences on central hemodynamic parameters and regional blood flow. Analysis of several dozen of modern articles revealed many differences between the earlier and present data, emphasizing the prospect offurther research. According to Russian authors Xe has a positive inotropic effect on the myocardium and increases cardiac output. Foreign researchers in animal experiments notice vasoconstrictor properties of Xe with increased vascular resistance in the systemic and pulmonary circulation. The place of Xe as an anesthetic in the anesthetist’s arsenal yet to be seen.
