What is forane isoflurane inhalation anaesthetic.how does it works and in how much time?
i'm studying this topic so i want to know more about it.. Asked by Mimi Verros 1 year ago.

It's a potent inhalation agent that we almost never use anymore. It's a halogenated ether with a slow on set and offset time, meaning that it takes FOREVER to wake people up after they've had it. Personally, I use Forane only when I don't plan on waking the patient up after surgery (and by that I mean that they go to the ICU with a breathing tube in, and spend the night on a ventilator). It works like the other halogenated ethers do, and we don't know for sure what that is. The popular theory now is that the gas molecules inhibit conformational changes in rapidly oscillating proteins in neurons throughout the brain that are involved in consciousness (those with dendrodendritic connections to other neurons). It takes from seconds to minutes to work, but is slower to have the desired effect than our newer agents, desflurane and sevoflurane. It's also a little more irritating to the airway than sevoflurane is, so is less suited to LMA anesthetics. I wouldn't waste time learning about isoflurane. Sevo or des are what we use now. Answered by Paula Vais 1 year ago.

It is a halogenated anesthetic. It comes as a liquid and by using a vaporizer, it is turned into a gas which is then mixed with oxygen or oxygen/air/nitrous oxide combinations to produce general anesthesia. Still a lot of debate as to how it works but it seems to be related to the halogen molecules attached to the structure. It was quite popular in the USA but now more anesthesia is done with Sevoforane and Deslurane, which are newer agents with faster wake up times. You still see a lot of Forane used in by vets for dogs and cats. You might try googling as there is a ton of information on the internet. Answered by Regina Riffon 1 year ago.

The surgery was four hours long and he has been really loopy and has been dosing off. I know tommrow, he is going to be in a great deal of pain. The anestesiologst gave him a lot of medicine..but i just want to know the affects of it. He said that it feels like he hit his head, and that his ears are popping, and he cant hear well. Also, he has a weird odor to him..and I think it might be the anestesia? And, he said he has a weird taste in his mouth...are these normal affects of the medication? Answered by Lakia Cacy 1 year ago.

I'll bet he got Forane (isoflurane) - that gas takes FOREVER to go away. I don't use it unless I don't plan on waking the patient up (like people who go to the ICU after really big surgeries). The gases we use go from lungs to blood to brain in order to work. However, some of the gas gets dissolved in muscle and fat. It takes a long time to get into those tissues and a long time to come out. When those gases come out of those tissues, they go to the blood and then the lungs, so he'll smell like the gas as this happens. He may also still have some of the effects of the gas as this happens. I really hate Forane. During his anesthetic, he also most likely got some opiates for pain control. Those hang around for a while, as well (on purpose, to treat pain). Some people get loopy from those drugs. All of this will wear off in time. Older people tend to get rid of drugs more slowly, and have a longer recovery time. Hope he feels better soon. Answered by Margarite Bruna 1 year ago.

It's probably not the original anesthesia. It's probably his current pain meds. The original anesthesia usually causes puking as its number one side effect. I'm willing to bet he is on some pretty strong pain pills. I alot of the symptoms you mentioned can be caused by them. Anyway, always check with his doctor to be sure.

What would happen if i smell liquid isoflurane ?
if i soak a piece of cotton or cloth in liquid isoflurane & smell it , would it be lethal ? what effects would it have ? i want a serious answer ! **** Isoflurane is also known as FORANE .. it is inhalant anesthesia Asked by Carolee Tieken 1 year ago.

OK drop this thing Sunny - no one is affected by a few whiffs of liquid isoflo, chlorform or any other anaesthetic agent. You do know this is very weird don't you, and possibly unhealthy? Chalice Answered by Gerald Fournier 1 year ago.
