Inhalational anaesthetics



Inhalational anaesthetics







Inhalational anaesthetic agents include the halogenated organic compounds (halothane, enflurane, desflurane, isoflurane and sevoflurane), nitrous oxide and xenon. Their mechanism of action is becoming increasingly understood as well as the clinically important differences between agents. The use of xenon is relatively new and may assume greater importance in the future because of the environmental impact of the older agents.
