Advantages and guidelines for using isoflurane.


PMID 1585568

Abstract

Isoflurane offers many advantages over other inhalational anesthetics. Its faster induction and recovery, relative sparing effect on cardiovascular function and cerebral blood flow autoregulation, and negligible metabolism make this drug particularly useful in the anesthetic management of the debilitated, aged, or unusual veterinary patient.
