MAC for halothane, enflurane and isoflurane was determined in guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) exposed to constant anesthetic concentrations (2.5 hours each) in a flow-through glass chamber. The following values were obtained (N = 8 for each anesthetic): 1.01 +/- 0.03 vol% for halothane, 2.17 +/- 0.04 vol% for enflurane, and 1.15 +/- 0.05 vol% for isoflurane. In guinea pigs, MAC for halothane and enflurane are similar to those reported for other rodents, while MAC for isoflurane is lower. The data indicate that guinea pigs possibly are more susceptible to isoflurane's anesthetic actions than other rodents.
