Is ETHRANE(enflurane) a general anaesthetic?
What are the advantages and disadvantages? PHARMACODYNAMICS??
Asked by Cinthia Browing 1 year ago.
Enflurane is a halogenated ether compound. It was used as a volatile anaesthetic agent in the 1970's and 1980's. It is not in common use in the western world currently having been superceded by more efficacious agents (eg sevoflurane) with fewer side effects. Regrettably (as with all volatile anaesthetic agents) rigorious pharmacodynamic data is hard to come by. Essentially - it knocks patients (and other animals) out. How and why? Well you tell us and then we'll know! It'd probably help if we actually knew more about the state of anaesthesia. Answered by Sadye Renzi 1 year ago.
