Objectives: To compare the effects of low and high flow desflurane anaesthesia on hemogram parameters in lower abdominal surgeries. Methods: Sixty female patients who underwent lower abdominal surgery under general anaesthetic were included in this prospective study. Patients were randomly divided into two groups, as Group I (low flow) and Group II (high flow), and then compared with each other according to their demographic features and hemogram parameters. Results: Groups were statistically similar, and there were no significant differences in terms of demographic data between the groups (p>0.05). The comparisons of hemogram parameters within the groups showed that there were significant differences in plateletcrit, platelet-lymphocyte ratio and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio values in Group I (p<0.05). The comparisons of hemogram parameters within Group II showed a statistically significance in plateletcrit and platelet-lymphocyte ratio values. A statistically significant difference was found for red cell distribution width, neutrophil- lymphocyte ratio, platelet-lymphocyte ratio and plateletcrit values between groups for the pre-operative and post-operative values of hemogram parameters (p<0.05). Conclusion: Our study showed that the administration of low flow anaesthesia led to a positive effect on the inflammatory response by lowering neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-lymphocyte ratio and red cell distribution width values, in comparison to high flow anaesthesia. Keywords: Desflurane, hemogram parameters, low and high flow anaesthesia
