Figure 2: Graph showing the decrement in end-tidal desflurane concentrations over time after time-zero in the two groups. Each line represents the decrement in an individual patient. The end-tidal desflurane concentration at 0 min was the desflurane concentration that was needed to maintain MACage of 1 in that particular patient. The lines showing the decrement in desflurane concentrations are more or less parallel indicating that a fixed fraction of desflurane was eliminated from the system with the set fresh gas flow rate. The time at which the lines end indicates the time to emergence in the particular patient
