Chemical Anesthetics, Inhalation

Name Anesthetics, Inhalation
Equivalent Terms Anesthetic Gases | Gases, Anesthetic | Inhalation Anesthetics
Definition Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)
