In the May 2016 issue, the article beginning on page 986 included the following comment in the first paragraph: “Numerous animal studies from canines to nematodes provided evidence for volatile anesthetic protection against myocardial ischemia–reperfusion injury.” It was brought to the authors’ attention that nematodes do not have a circulatory system or a myocardium, making the original wording confusing. The sentence should read: “Numerous animal studies from canines to nematodes provided evidence for volatile anesthetic protection against ischemia–reperfusion (hypoxia–reoxygenation) injury.”
