Recent Inhalant Anaesthetics in Veterinary Practice

Authors(6) :-Nisha A. R. , Febin S, Varun V, Veni V, Mahesh D. M, Vanishree H

Inhalation anaesthesia is widely used in veterinary clinical practice worldwide. Apart from the conventional inhalant anaesthetic agents like halothane, never and more potent compounds have been identified and used for so far. Also various researches are also going pre clinically. New agents like desflurane, sevoflurane and xenon in veterinary medicine is focussed mainly in this article. Prevalent agents like isoflurane, halothane, and nitrous oxide are also revised. Inhalant anaesthetics are either vapour volatile liquids or gases, hence their physical properties having relevance in the concerned topic is also considered. Major advancement in inhalant anaesthetics used in veterinary medicine is the main focus in this article and introduce their characteristics in various veterinary species from the available scientific research data published so far.
