This may be one of the most hair-pulling topics I've ever read about ... I was hoping some of the current CRNA's and/or SRNA
's out there have a good reference they thought really helped them grasp the concept. I have "Uptake and Distribution of Inhaled Anesthetics" by Eger ... any other suggestions?

Ah, uptake and distribution, one of my favourite subjects...
Now, lets see, if your in denver will your gas be more or less soluble in blood? Does this mean you'll need more or less ET% to achieve MAC? What would your MAC of volatile agent be if you were in a unpressurized submarine 100 feet below the ocean? What would you MAC of anesthetic agent be in space? What ET% of desflurane could you achieve in space?
