Mechanism of general anesthesia
Recently published research (2020) confirms that volatile anesthetics alter ion channel function in cells, which impedes electrical signaling in the neurons that control wakefulness and breathing, resulting in a loss of consciousness.10
Effect of CO2 on anesthetics and neurons
Carbon dioxide has been shown to vasodilate the cerebral vasculature, and to restore electrical signaling in neurons in the brain that control wakefulness and breathing. 11,12,13
ANEclear technology activates the brain
ANEclear’s patented process uses the patient’s own carbon dioxide to reverse the effects of inhaled volatile anesthetics in the brain, using a two-step process; 1) vasodilating the cerebral vasculature accelerating washout of anesthetics, and 2) reversing the effects these anesthetics have on neurons that control consciousness and breathing.
