Halogenated Hydrocarbon Anesthetics

Sevoflurane, desflurane, enflurane, isoflurane, halothane, and methoxyflurane are considered to be quite potent halogenated hydrocarbon anesthetics, since they produce surgical levels of anesthesia at low inspired partial pressures. None of the halogenated hydrocarbons, however, possess all of the pharmacological properties that are considered desirable for an anesthetic agent, so they are often given with other anesthetics and adjunctive drugs to provide effective and safe anesthetic management. The use of these drug combinations is referred to as balanced anesthesia.
