This study was designed to investigate the defluorination of sevoflurane in patients. Five patients, scheduled for orthopedic surgery, were administered sevoflurane for 60 min during NLA-nitrous oxide-oxygen. The end-tidal concentration of sevoflurane was adjusted at 0.6% throughout the entire inhalation period.
The serum concentration of inorganic F- increased significantly 15 min after the onset of inhalation and reached a plateau at 45 min with a mean value about 15 μM. The serum organic fluoride level increased significantly 45 min after the onset of inhalation and did not change significantly 4 hr later with a mean value of about 140 μM.
The elimination half-lives and rate constants were calculated from urinary data to be 2040 min and 0.00034 for inorganic fluoride and 1800 min and 0.00038 for organic fluoride respectively. The ratio organic/inorganic fluoride was calculated to be 2.3.
This study was supported in part by a Grant-in-aid for Science Research from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Japan.
