Means for inhalation anesthesia
A number of easily volatile (volatile) liquids (halothane, ether for anesthesia) and gaseous substances (mainly nitrous oxide) belong to the means for inhalation anesthesia.
In connection with good anesthetic properties and safety (non-inflammable and explosion-proof), fluorinated hydrocarbons, especially fluorotane, have found wide application in anesthesiology practice, displacing or limiting the use of such well-known agents as chloroform, cyclopropane, etc.
A subgroup of means for anesthesia includes drugs:
- Nitrous oxide (Nitrogenium oxydulatum)
- Isoflurane (Isoflurane)
- Methoxyflurane (Methoxyfluranum)
- Trichlorethylene for anesthesia (Trichoraetylenum pro narcosi)
- Ftorotan (Phthorothanum)
- Chloroethyl (Aethylii chloridum)
- Cyclopropane (Cyclopropanum)
- Enfluran (1)
- Ether for anesthesia (Aether pro narcosi)
