Halothane or isoflurane was used to induce anesthesia in children scheduled for outpatient surgical procedures. Both agents were administered at predetermined rates until comparable concentrations in end-expired air were reached. Induction of anesthesia, as well as the time taken before tracheal intubation was possible, was protracted in patients given isoflurane. In the recovery period, the times taken to respond to pharyngeal suction, to tracheal extubation, and to the first cry were similar for both anesthetic agents.
