Abstract:

Data reveal that sodium pentobarbital anesthesia does not depress glucose uptake of neutrophils stimulated by the addition of live E. coli. E. coli viability was reduced equally in blood obtained before and after sodium pentobarbital anesthesia. Pre- and post-anesthetic blood samples with E. coli added showed comparable decreases in mature neutrophils and elevations in numbers of degenerated neutrophils. These data suggest that the ability of the neutrophil to phagocytize is not affected by sodium pentobarbital anesthesia. Author
