Figure 2: Comparison of groups in which patients received 3 and 6 L/min fresh gas flow under desflurane, sevoflurane, and TIVA anesthesia in terms of IT and IAH values, depending on whether HME (+) or HME (–). Note: Data are expressed mean ± SD (n = 20), and were analyzed by Friedman’s two-way analysis of variance, Mann-Whitney U test for two independent groups, and Kruskal-Wallis’s variance analysis, Bivariate repeated measures covariance analysis, Tukey’s honestly significant difference post hoc comparison methods. HME: Humidity exchanger filter; IAH: inspired absolute humidity; IT: inspired temperature; TIVA: total intravenous anesthesia.
