Abstract

Halothane, as one of the most widely used anesthetics in general anesthesia, has been found to play a role in causing Halothane Hepatitis, raising liver enzymes as well as a number of congenital abnormalities under frequent exposure. In this case-control study the possible contamination of operation room was probed through the measurement of the probable changes in liver enzymes among the operation room staff. The study was conducted on two groups: 1) Case group consisted of 40 operation room staff and 2) Control group consisted of 40 ward staff. The results showed that halothane could affect liver enzymes among the operation room staff especially in women. It seems that exposure to Halothane vapor among the operation room can be regarded as a risk factor.
