Background: Maintenance of SaO2 in normal range is an essential problem in anesthesia of patients with cyanotic heart disease. Objective: To compare the effects of halothane and ketamine as inductive agents on SaO2 in anesthesia of patients with cyanotic heart disease. Methods: 50 patients who referred to Shahid Faghihi hospital of Shiraz in 1995 were divided into two equal groups. One group was anesthetized with Ketamine and the other with halothane. In the first ten minutes, SaO2 was measured every minute. The gathered information were evaluated by repeated measure-analysis of variance and T-test. Findings: There was no significant statistic difference between two groups, regarding SaO2. Conclusion: Halothane has priority to Ketamine since intramascular injection of Ketamine in children leads to pain and crying, thus increases the incidence of Tet spell and decreases SaO2.
