Abstract

The minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) was determined in rabbits as the mean of the lowest alveolar halothane concentration preventing and the highest permitting a response to stimulus. MAC for the rabbit was 0.8 ± 0.3%. The measurement of MAC in the rabbit appears to reflect the arterial and brain anesthetic concentrations.
